X5 vs Q7: Performance
The 2019 BMW X5 offers three powerful engines in its powertrain lineup. Standardly, the X5 is powered by a 335 HP 3.0L BMW TwinPower turbocharged V6 engine that achieves an efficient EPA-estimated 25 highway MPG.
For more power in the X5, you can opt for the available 4.4L BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. This engine, which comes paired to an all-wheel drivetrain and 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission, manufactures an incredible 456 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.
The 2019 Audi Q7, on the other hand, offers only two engines. You’ll only have a 4-cylinder and a V6 engine to choose from, with no V8 available in this model. You’ll also max out at 329 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.
X5 vs Q7: Interior Space
Inside the BMW X5, you’ll have quite a bit of space to pack in all your stuff. With all seats upright and in use, this model can handle a whopping 33.9 cubic feet worth of cargo behind the rear row of seats. Compare this to the 2018 Audi Q7, which boasts just 14.2 cubic feet behind the rear row of seats.
If you need more space, the X5 delivers with 40/20/40 split fold-flat seats that can more than double your cargo capabilities. Folding all three rear seats down will get you an incredible 72.3 total cubic feet of cargo space to work with. The Q7, on the other hand, offers just 69.9 total cubic feet of cargo space when you fold the rear seats down.
X5 vs Q7: Technology
The 2019 BMW X5 is built to be convenient and helpful. That’s why it’s equipped with a 10.2-inch iDrive touchscreen infotainment system that gives you the perfect combination of connectability, navigation, and safety. Make hands-free phone calls, access all your favorite smartphone apps on the infotainment screen, and even get a bird’s eye view of your vehicle’s surroundings.
This model even gives you the ability to add an optional WiFi® hotspot and wireless device charging pouch. Surf and stream the whole way to your destination, or juice up your device, so that you’re ready to go when you get to where you’re going.
You’ll get some of these same features in the Q7. However, you will have to upgrade from the base trim level to access a surround camera display feature like the one you’ll find in the X5.
