Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q8 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW X7. The BMW X7 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q8.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q8 as you will with the BMW X7, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q8 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X7.

Dimensions
The Audi Q8 is about the same width as the BMW X7. The Audi Q8 is slightly shorter than the BMW X7, which may make it easier to park.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q8 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the BMW X7.
