Both the Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne are related to the 2009 Audi Q7, but neither offers a third-row seat—nor are they as sleek and refined as the Audi ute.
Both the Touareg and Cayenne do claim off-road ability, however, if making them more attractive is a priority.
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV has crisp lines and a luxurious, roomy interior.
BMW's X5 is a little less handsome than the Audi Q7, but it sports equivalent performance and features.
The Infiniti FX35 and FX50 are other alternatives to the Q7; they offer an equally stylish—if not more aggressive—appearance, with even sharper handling and a rather firm ride.
But the FX’s curvier shape means that it sacrifices interior space in the name of fashion.
