2017 Audi Q7 vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q7 than in the Volvo XC90. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90.

Convenience
The Audi Q7 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC90, 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). The Audi Q7 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q7 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q7, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q7 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC90.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q7 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q7 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90. The Audi Q7 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
