2023 Audi Q5 vs 2023 Audi Q7

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

At Audi Farmington Hills, SUV shoppers often ask us about the differences between the Audi Q7 and the Q5. The 2023 Q5 is a compact crossover SUV with two rows of seating and many great features. The Q7, on the other hand, is a midsize crossover with ample space in the cabin for three rows of seating. While there are numerous similarities between these Audi models, there are also other differences that SUV shoppers in the Farmington Hills area need to know about before making their next purchase.


The Q5 is offered with three powertrains. The two gas engines are a 201-horsepower, turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder system and a 261-horsepower variant of this system. A plug-in hybrid is also available, and it offers 362 net horsepower. The Q7 is available in two gas engines. The base-level system is the same 261-horsepower engine in the Q5. The more advanced engine is a 3.0-liter turbo V6 system that delivers 335 horsepower to you.


Perhaps the most notable difference in the exterior designs of the Q7 and the Q5 is their size. However, other differences make them easy to tell apart on Farmington Hills-area roads. The Q5 has a drop-down, hexagonal grille with a grid-like mesh pattern. The LED headlights have trapezoidal quality and sit above metal-accented air vents. This metallic finish is also found as an accent along the lower portion of the door panels. A pinstripe feature runs from fender to fender. The Q7, on the other hand, has a different grille mesh pattern along with larger, matrix-style headlights. The air vents below the headlights are larger with black accents. The sides of the Q7 are distinguished by upper and lower accents that flow across the door panels.


The features in the 2023 Q5 and the Q7 become increasingly sophisticated as you walk up the trim levels. Both models are offered with heated first and second rows, traffic sign recognition, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, automated parking assistance, heated and cooled cupholders, a head-up display, interior ambient lighting, a surround-view camera, a panoramic sunroof, smart device integration and more. The Q7 also has illuminated door sills, rear sunshades, a four-zone climate control system, soft-close doors, massaging front seats, and other equipment.

The 2023 Q5 and Q7 are undeniably appealing with standout qualities, but you can see that there are differences in their performance capabilities, features, and styling.
