Audi Q7 vs BMW X5 Interior Comfort and Features

If you want to feel like the sky is your ceiling, you'll like that both the Audi Q7 and BMW X5 come with a standard panoramic sunroof that fills your entire cabin with natural light. This makes the interior of both models feel even more spacious than they already are.

Both SUVs also decorate their interior with wood trim inlays that give them a refined feel, along with genuine leather or leatherette seating surfaces with available heating and ventilation.

As an added luxury, the Audi Q7 also has an available massage function for front-seat passengers, allowing you to find peace on your drive. Unfortunately, the BMW X5 doesn't make this level of comfort available.

Cargo Space

Both the Audi Q7 and BMW X5 feature a fully finished cargo area with high-quality fabric, as well as split-folding rear seats that allow you to maximize space between cargo and passengers to suit your needs.

When you're loading up for your next weekend away, however, you may be able to fit a bit more in the Audi Q7, especially if you're bringing along four of your closest friends. The Audi Q7 can fit 35.7 cubic feet of cargo behind the second row, while the BMX X5 can only accommodate 33.9 cubic feet of cargo behind the second-row seats.

Audi Q7 vs BMW X5 Engine Power and Handling

Both the Audi Q7 and BMW X5 are well-equipped for high-powered driving, especially since they both have an available 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine roaring under the hood. In both SUVs, this engine can get you from 0 to 60 MPH in less than six seconds.

You might find the handling capabilities a bit more versatile in the Audi Q7, however, thanks to the standard Audi drive select system. This feature lets you choose between several different drive modes, including Dynamic, Comfort, and Offroad, to maximize performance to meet your driving needs.

  • Forward collision mitigation

The Audi Q7 also has several other innovative safety features, such as turn assist.
