2019 Audi Q7 vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2019 Audi Q7 has no shortage of competitors, including the redesigned BMW X5, despite the Bimmer being slightly smaller and more cramped in the third row.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, on the other hand, is larger than the Audi with more upscale appointments, but starts at almost $20,000 more.

The Infiniti QX60 undercuts the Q7 by several thousand dollars while offering third row usability but feels like it costs less.

Lexus’ GX has a body-on-frame design for more off-road capability but lacks refinement around town.

Finally, the Volvo XC90 is the Q7’s closest competitor and challenges the Audi for style and interior space despite lagging slightly behind in build quality and power.
