2016 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2017 Audi Q7 Review

Comparison Review

The Audi Q7 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Cayenne.

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 Porsche Cayenne will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi Q7, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Porsche Cayenne will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Audi Q7.

The Porsche Cayenne is a little wider than the Audi Q7, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Porsche Cayenne is slightly shorter than the Audi Q7, which may make it easier to park.

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

The Porsche Cayenne has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q7, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the Audi Q7 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the Audi Q7.

The Porsche Cayenne has less seating than the Audi Q7, making the Audi Q7 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Cayenne has less cargo space than the Audi Q7, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Porsche Cayenne comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q7.
