Audi Q7 vs BMW X5: Cabin Comparison

 If we look at the interior of the Q7 and the X5, we immediately see some major differences in their logistics. The 2017 Audi Q7 offers seating for up to 7 passengers standard, and its rear passenger area makes it exceptionally comfortable for all of your passengers.

The seating setup in the Audi Q7 features two comfortable heated power-adjustable front seats, a second-row seat with latch and tether anchors for the kiddos and sliding adjustments for each of the three seats, and a third-row 50/50 split, power-folding third row seat for 2. Other exceptional standard interior are the panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery throughout.

The BMW X5 comes standard with seating for up to 5 passengers. It also includes standard power heated front seats, but leather upholstery is only available as an upgrade.

Also available only as an upgrade is that optional third-row seat. While it does take the seating capacity up to 7 passengers, it comes at a pretty steep price and will cost you valuable cargo space in the rear.

BMW X5 vs Audi Q7: Performance Comparison

 Any time you're comparing two vehicles, you want to look at how they match up in terms of power. And if you compare the Audi Q7 and BMW X5, you'll see some substantial differences. The Audi Q7 offers stunning performance in all kinds of driving conditions, a large fuel tank, and exceptional EPA-estimated fuel economy.

Under the hood, the Audi Q7 sports a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that produces up to 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. This engine has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. With all-wheel drive, this quattro sport utility vehicle will serve you well on the roads around Conshohocken, West Chester, and Devon.
