Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Audi Q7, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q7, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q7 as you will with the Nissan Armada, 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). Whether you pick the Audi Q7 or the Nissan Armada, 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. The Audi Q7 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi Q7 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Armada, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Audi Q7 has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Audi Q7 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

Utility
The Audi Q7 has less seating than the Nissan Armada, making the Nissan Armada the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q7 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q7 than that of the Nissan Armada.
