Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q7 than in the Lexus GX 460. 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 Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460. 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 Lexus GX 460.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, 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 Lexus GX 460.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q7 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q7 has a little less horsepower than the Lexus GX 460.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q7 and the Lexus GX 460. The Audi Q7 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lexus GX 460.

Warranty
The Audi Q7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GX 460.
