The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image. The 2011 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5.
