Comparison Review

The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac XT6, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Cadillac XT6.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q7 as you will with the Cadillac XT6, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 XT6. 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 Cadillac XT6.

The Audi Q7 is about the same width as the Cadillac XT6. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q7 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac XT6.

When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q7 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 has a lot less horsepower than the Cadillac XT6.

With similar torque, the Audi Q7 and the Cadillac XT6 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q7 and the Cadillac XT6. The Audi Q7 has less cargo space than the Cadillac XT6, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Audi Q7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT6.
