The BMW X5 and Audi Q7 are two of the most popular luxury SUVs on the market, and there's a few clear reasons why. They have cargo room, premium materials, smart technology, and capable engines, but in each of these areas the BMW X5 comes out a bit ahead. To show San Marcos shoppers why the BMW X5 is the better option of the two, we've compared them in these key areas.

How do these two models stack up?


Several features of the BMW X5 let New Braunfels drivers settle into the lap of luxury on any drive. Every trim comes with front seats that can be adjusted in more ways than the seats in the highest trim of the Audi Q7, and the Luxury Seating Package only adds to your comfort. The BMW X5 also has more storage room, so you don't have to leave anything behind.

Features and Safety

Both models come standard with features like a power liftgate and panoramic sunroof, but only the BMW X5 is available with entertainment features like two 10.2-inch screens for back seat passengers to enjoy movies.

You'll find driver-assist safety features from rain-sensing wipers to automatic high beams in both cars, but the BMW X5 performed better in crash test ratings. It earned a 5-star overall front crash test rating from the NHTSA. The Audi Q7 earned a 4-star rating on the same test.


The BMW X5 really starts to separate itself from the Audi Q7 with its engine options. The Audi Q7 has two available gas engines, but they lag behind the BMW X5's four options. Looking for efficiency? The BMW X5 has a plug-in hybrid offering. Want a little more power? The diesel offering has 413 pound-feet of torque and still gets 30 mpg highway. Want a lot more power? The 445-horsepower V8 of the BMW X5 packs 480 pound-feet for a ride that Boerne thrill-seekers won't forget.
