2015 Audi Q7 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Touareg, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
The Audi Q7 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Touareg. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q7 and the Volkswagen Touareg have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi Q7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q7 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Touareg, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi Q7. The Audi Q7 has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi Q7 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q7 than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
