Audi Q7 vs. BMW X5

The Audi Q7 is a better value than the X5, with a starting price that’s about $4,000 less, standard all-wheel drive, and standard third-row seating. The Audi also has a high-quality, more modern cabin with standard genuine leather and more tech. However, the BMW has a clear advantage in the performance department, offering significantly more horsepower from the base engine up to the thrilling X5 M. Engine power notwithstanding, the X5 is arguably more engaging to drive, and it provides better fuel economy to boot. Both the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 offer hybrid drivetrains, but the BMW xDrive45e plug-in hybrid can travel 31 miles on electricity alone and comes with a 50-MPGe rating. The X5 also outperforms the Q7 in terms of reliability, an important factor when repairs for both vehicles can be quite expensive. The X5 offers slightly more cargo space, while the Q7 earns marginally better crash-test scores.
