2015 Audi Q7 vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC90, with comparable head- and legroom. The Audi Q7 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q7, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo XC90.

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). Whether you pick the Audi Q7 or the Volvo XC90, it's going to cost you about the same. 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
The Audi Q7 is a little narrower than the Volvo XC90, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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
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 Volvo XC90.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q7 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 has a lot less 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.
