How The Audi Q7 Stacks Up Against Its Competitors

The Audi Q7 consistently finds itself pitted against the numerous other luxury SUVs within its segment. Models like the Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350 and Mercedes-Benz GLS all frequently find themselves compared to the Audi Q7, however, despite their admirable attempts, rarely manage to surpass the superior craftsmanship and impeccable attention to detail found within the Audi Q7. To see how the Audi Q7 holds up against its closest competitors, read below!

The Audi Q7 Vs. The Competition

The Acura MDX is routinely compared to the Audi Q7 - however, while its available Sport Hybrid model boasts an impressive 321 horsepower engine output alongside an all-wheel drive system, it fails to surpass the 329 horsepower, 325 pound-foot 3.0-liter TFSI® engine featured on the Audi Q7, and the iconic quattro® all-wheel drive system that remains the industry standard.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS may offer the eminence associated with the iconic brand, however, despite Mercedes-Benz's legacy as a luxury manufacturer, the interiors of the two SUVs aren't as closely matched as some drivers may anticipate. The Audi Q7's massive panoramic sunroof offers a far more luxurious ambiance when paired with the standard interior ambient lighting package, while the Mercedes-Benz GLS's dual moonroof ushers in less light than expected. Additionally, the GLS's relatively simplistic layout doesn't adhere to comparable standards of modern sleek minimalist design featured within the Audi Q7.

The Lexus RX may feature a striking front grille style, however its performance hardly compares to the Audi Q7. Its primary powertrain, a front-wheel drive layout powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, only exerts 295 horsepower, and 268 pound-feet of torque. The Audi Q7's all-wheel drive layout, in conjunction with its less thirsty displacement (at 3.0 liters instead of the Lexus's 3.5 liters) ultimately reveals the Audi Q7's drivetrain as a testament to superior engineering.
