Audi Q7 vs BMW X5 - Which Is Better?
Posted in Reviews On By David Moffatt

How do you make a decision between an Audi Q7 vs BMW X5? Both great cars, but what's key differences between the Audi Q7 & BMW X5? See our guide here..

It's a fantastic position to be in, having to decide which new car to have - Audi Q7 vs BMW X5.  Both vehicles in my opinion are first class and personally I wouldn't be disappointed to be driving either of them. We know both the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 are great cars, so let's get straight into it and look at running costs and key features for each vehicle which should help you decide between Audi Q7 vs BMW X5! [caption id="attachment_592" align="aligncenter" width="400"]Audi Q7 vs BMW X5 - Which Is Better Audi Q7 vs BMW X5 - Which Is Better[/caption] Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 245ps S-Line Plus 8-Speed TipTronic We'll start with the Audi Q7, the 3.0 TDI 245ps S-Line Plus 8-Speed TipTronic model is easily the most popular out of the Audi Q7 range.  This is purely down to the fact that the S-Line Plus comes with all the specification/extras you would want on the car as standard.  The finance companies love this model because of the high level of standard specification, it commands strong residual values (what the car is worth at the end of the finance agreement).  Standard Specification - Key Features
  • 21" 5-Segment Spoke Design Alloy Wheels
  • Verano Leather Upholstery
  • Metallic Paint
  • HDD Based Satellite Navigation
  • Audi Parking System Advanced
  • Power Operated Tailgate
Running Costs - Key Features
  • Total RRP £51,475
  • Average Monthly Lease Payment £459 + VAT (click here to see our latest payment)
  • CO2 g/km 195
  • Benefit In Kind 34%
  • Combined Fuel MPG 38.2
  • 0-62 MPH Acceleration 7.8 seconds
BMW X5 xDrive 3.0d M Sport Automatic Typically the more popular model within the BMW X5 range is the 3.0d M Sport Automatic.  Just like the Audi Q7 this is because the M Sport includes the specification that most 4x4 drivers demand as standard. Standard Specification - Key Features
  • 19" Light Alloy M Double Spoke Style Alloy Wheels (run-flat tyres)
  • Navigation System - BMW Professional Multimedia
  • Park Distance Control - Front & Rear
  • Dakota Leather Upholstery
  • Xenon Headlights
  • Adaptive M Suspension
Running Costs - Key Features
  • Total RRP £51,640
  • Average Monthly Lease Payment £531 + VAT
  • CO2 g/km 162
  • Benefit In Kind 27%
  • Combined Fuel MPG 45.6
  • 0-62 MPH Acceleration 6.9 seconds
As you can see there isn't a great deal to choose between the two 4x4's, but for me the Audi Q7 leasing deal being around £70 per month cheaper than the BMW X5 leasing deal means it gets the nod over the BMW.
