Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q7 than in the Cadillac XT5. The Audi Q7 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q7 as you will with the Cadillac XT5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Cadillac XT5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q7 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Cadillac XT5.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the Cadillac XT5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Cadillac XT5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q7 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Cadillac XT5.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has the same turning radius as the Cadillac XT5, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Cadillac XT5, 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 Cadillac XT5.
