2021 Audi Q7 vs 2021 BMW X5

Serving Valencia, CA

As evidenced by its rankings as the #1 vehicle among three-row luxury SUVs, there is little missing from the 2021 Audi Q7. The Audi surpasses other rivals in a competitive field, including the 2021 BMW X5, which ranks #3 in the class. The Audi Q7 takes the top spot for its solid package of comfort, convenience, technology, and power. It also has standard all-wheel drive, which is not included with the BMW X5. Adding to the appeal of the Audi Q7 is the fact that it provides many standard features and a number of extra options for a reasonable cost compared to the BMW X5, which can get expensive quickly. The 2021 Q7 just gets a few light changes to available features and trim-specific amenities this year following a comprehensive refresh in 2020, but it is still a top pick.

Performance

With the 2021 Audi Q7 comes standard all-wheel drive, which sets it apart from other SUVs in its class. The Audi has a choice of two powerful engines, starting with a turbocharged base engine that produces 248 HP and 273 LB-FT of torque, or a turbo V6 if you opt for the TFSI models. The BMW comes standard with rear-wheel drive and offers all-wheel drive as an alternative upgrade.

Interior

The 2021 Q7 has a quiet and upscale interior with high-end materials across every inch of the cabin. With the Audi Q7 comes leather upholstery, three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free liftgate, heated front seats, and Audi's own MMI infotainment system that comes with a dual-touchscreen setup. The BMW does not have a standard hands-free liftgate, and it only has one touchscreen display to start with. The Audi quickly adds additional high-end amenities including a Bang & Olufsen audio system, ambient interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, and an Audi-exclusive wireless charger with a signal booster. Illuminated doorsills give it the ultimate appearance of a luxury SUV. The BMW does not offer a signal booster. Wireless charging and a WiFi hotspot are only offered as optional amenities with a package.

Value

The 2021 Audi Q7 offers a fine assortment of standard and optional features. What is perhaps its best feature of all, however, is the fact that the crossover offers more value than the competition. From the base list of amenities to upgrades, you'll find that the Q7 gives you a lot of value for your money.
