Comparison Review

The Audi e-tron offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the BMW X7, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X7 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi e-tron, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

With the BMW X7, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi e-tron, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 e-tron or the BMW X7, 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. Both the Audi e-tron and the BMW X7 have similar Destination Charges.
