The 2021 Audi Q7 Takes on the Competition and Demonstrates What Sets it Apart

The refinement and elegance you get from the Audi Q7 is untouchable and, if you're searching for a new, luxury, three-row SUV for your family's Southcoast adventures, it should be at the top of your must-test drive list. At Mattie Audi in Fall River, where we carry a world-class selection of this impeccable SUV, we're ready to introduce it to you and illustrate all of the things that set it apart from similar, competing models from other brands.

With standard all-wheel drive and your choice of hybrid power, the Q7 is the rare luxury SUV that's high-end, efficient, and preferred by drivers from Dartmouth to Taunton. If you're considering this popular SUV against competing models from BMW or Mercedes-Benz, we can help. Read on to see some of the research we've put together on all three SUVs, to determine for yourself which one fits the bill and suits your family's needs.

Audi Q7 vs. BMW X5

  • Legroom in all three rows. Whether you sit in row one, row two, or row three of the Audi Q7, you'll be more comfortable and have more room to stretch your legs than the BMW X5. Not only that, but the X5 is technically a five-passenger, two-row SUV that offers the third row only as an option. Given that it's already smaller than the Q7 to begin with, this means that adding the third row in your BMW will lead to an SUV that's more cramped for everyone, with a tiny third row that's best left to small children.
  • Standard all-wheel drive. Whether you have a long commute from Newport, RI or a short one, if you drive in New England in the winter, chances are you're going to encounter your fair share of adverse weather conditions and slippery roads. This is when all-wheel drive becomes your best friend, and where the Q7 comes out ahead of the BMW X5, which starts with rear-wheel drive and only offers AWD as an option.
  • Standard safety features. Both SUVs have comprehensive lists of the latest safety technologies listed as standard equipment. But the Audi Q7 adds a couple extras that you won't find standard on the X5, including parking sensors for both the front and the rear of the vehicle.

Audi Q7 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

  • Weighing value vs. benefits. Both SUVs have three rows of seating and space for up to seven people. Both SUVs have nearly identical rosters of standard and optional features, with impeccably crafted interiors that are built with world-class materials. Yet, the Audi Q7 starts at around $54,000, while the Mercedes-Benz starts significantly higher, around $76,000.
  • Interior space. Not only will the Q7 help you score incredible luxury and refinement with a smaller monthly payment plan, but when it comes to comfort for you and your passenger, it offers superior amounts of space to stretch out in. This includes headroom, legroom, and shoulder room, with extra space than the Mercedes-Benz offers, especially in the front seat.
  • Luxury amenities. The Audi Q7 also offers more world-class quality and soft-touch, high-end materials right out of the gate than the GLS. For example, you can look forward to premium leather upholstery on every Q7, while the Mercedes-Benz model doesn't offer leather until upper trims or as an option.
