Serving Farmington Hills, MI

If you are interested in getting behind the wheel of a new luxury SUV, you have plenty of options to choose from. However, there are two vehicles that stand head and shoulders above the competition - the 2019 Audi Q7 and the 2019 BMW X5. Both of these vehicles are simply packed full of innovative features and stylish design elements. Of course, since they are both such excellent SUVs, it can be difficult to choose just one of them. As such, we have put together this short comparison report to see how they stack up against each other. Hopefully, you will find it to be useful when making your final decision.

Interior Room

Whether you plan on using your new SUV to take your kids to soccer practice or as part of a carpool to work, you will need to make sure that you have plenty of space for passengers. Luckily, both the 2019 Q7 and 2019 X5 offer more than enough space for everyone. However, if you want to give your passengers as much room as you possibly can, then the Audi is the vehicle for you. It offers 1.9 inches more front seat legroom, 1.4 inches more rear seat legroom, 0.1 inches more rear seat headroom, and 0.4 inches more rear seat shoulder room than the BMW does.

Safety

When you hit the road in your new SUV, you want to be confident that it can keep you safe and protected at all times. With this in mind, you will no doubt be pleased to know that the 2019 Q7 and 2019 X5 have both received excellent safety ratings from consumers and the governing authorities. However, it is worth noting that the Audi does offer a few safety features that you just won't find on the BMW. Most notably, the Q7 offers middle seat belt pre-tensioners, height-adjustable seat belts, and backup collision prevention brakes. If these features are at all important to you and your family, the Q7 is the SUV for you.

Drivability

Of course, one of the most important aspects of any new vehicle is how easy it is to drive. Luckily, both the Audi and BMW are at the top of their class in terms of handling and drivability. However, there are a few differences to note between the two vehicles. If you plan on taking your new SUV around any twisty roads, the Q7 is the best option. It offers a turning circle that is 0.7 feet tighter than the X5's. The Audi is also the car to pick if you are planning on going off-road. While the BMW offers just 8.7 inches of minimum ground clearance, the Audi can deliver an impressive 9.7 inches of clearance.

Having learned a little bit more about how these two vehicles match up against each other in these important areas, you may be wondering where you can go to check out a 2019 Audi Q7 in person. Luckily, the answer is simple. All you need to do is stop by the Audi Farmington Hills showroom during regular business hours.
