BMW X7 Engine

BMW X7 vs Audi Q7: Performance Capabilities

A premium cabin interior isn’t all you’ll have access to when you drive a luxury SUV like the X7 or the Q7. You’ll also have access to beast-like engines.

The Audi Q7 comes standard with a 2.0L turbocharged engine capable of producing 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The X7, on the other hand, comes with a 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo engine that churns out 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque.

If that’s not enough power for you, upgrade your X7 to the optional 4.4L BMW ALPINA Bi-Turbo V8 engine. With this engine, you’ll get an unmatched 612 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.

BMW X7 vs Audi Q7: Interior Dimensions

Interior comfort goes beyond seating configurations and technology features. Interior comfort also includes spacious dimensions. When it comes to family trips, both SUVs make it possible to travel with everyone thanks to their maximum seating capacity of seven.

But which model provides the extra space you need?

The BMW X7 provides a little more wiggle room than the Audi Q7, giving passengers the freedom to stretch out on even the longest trips.

Plus, when coupled with the standard panoramic glass moonroof or the optional Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof, it will feel like the sky’s the limit when it comes to the interior space of your BMW X7. While the Q7 also comes standard with a panoramic roof, you won’t find the Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof feature that creates a color-changing light display on the roof of the cabin.

BMW X7 Interior

BMW X7 vs Audi Q7: Luxurious Interior

The cabin of your SUV is where you’ll spend most of your time, so make sure your travels are as comfortable as possible. Luckily, both the BMW X7 and the Audi Q7 come with premium interiors. Some features include available leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and comprehensive technology features.

While both SUVs come with similar features, the X7 allows for more customized comfort thanks to its extra seating positions. The X7 comes standard with 16-way power adjust front seats but can be upgraded to the available 20-way Multi-contour front seats. The Q7, on the other hand, only comes standard with 8-way power front seats.
