How the Audi Q8 SUV Takes on the BMW X7 SAV

When looking for a full-size luxury SUV, there are many great options out there, including the legendary Audi Q8--but which vehicle is right for you? Here's how the new Audi Q8 and the BMW X7 luxury SUVs stack up next to one another.

Driving Experience

Drivers choose luxury performance SUVs because they love a thrilling road performance with expert handling and motorsport speed. The V6 Audi Q8 offers a 0-60 sprint of just 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The new I6 BMW X7 takes 5.8 seconds to reach sixty miles per hour, but it will eventually reach the same top speed.

Power and Performance

A big reason to buy an SUV is for its power. The Audi Q8 offers 369 pound-feet of torque and 335 horsepower from its turbocharged V6 engine, giving you the strength to tow up to 7,700 pounds of trailer when properly equipped. The BMW X7's turbocharged I6 motor brings in just 330 pound-feet of torque and 330 horsepower, offering a weaker tow rating of 7,500 pounds. Even with an upgraded 4.4-liter V8 engine, the BMW X7 still can't match the Q8's towing power.

While both of these full-size luxury SUVs offer great styling and features, we believe the Audi Q8's sporty looks, improved performance, and fabulous features make it a better choice for many drivers.
