Serving Brentwood, TN

The Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 are standout options in the larger SUV segment. The Q7 has three rows of seats, and this midsize luxury crossover reflects the significant updates from a 2020 facelift. The BMW X5 is a full-size crossover with three rows of seats, and its last considerable update took place in 2019. What are the other significant differences between the 2021 Audi Q7 and the BMW X5?


The Audi Q7 is a gorgeous crossover that easily gets noticed on the road. It brings together a tall profile and an encompassing grille with chrome accents, elegant headlights, and an innovative rear design that integrates the dual exhaust finishers. The BMW X5’s exterior also has a tall stance through the cabin, but its nose has a dramatic arch down toward the segmented grille. The headlights and rear lights are relatively large and aggressive, and the exhaust finishers have a classic look.


The confidence and inspiration that are on full display across the Q7 exterior are also prominent in the spacious cabin. This 2021 Audi crossover features stacked display screens that are mounted at a crisp angle in the dashboard. From the quilted accent stitches on the leather seats to the woodgrain trim, the climatized seats, the smart device integration, and many other features, the Q7 has the equipment that you want your next crossover to have. The BMW X5 for 2021 has a layered, segmented look across the front end. These layers hold woodgrain accents, the sound system’s interface, the climate control’s interface, and a floating display screen.


The Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 both pull 335 horsepower from their primary powertrain. The Q7 powertrain is a V6, 3.0-liter gas engine, and it is tied to Quattro all-wheel drive. The BMW X5’s powertrain is comparable, and it is associated with a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain. The X5 and the Q7 are both available with other powertrains as well. Additional features included in both models are power steering, a keyless ignition, traction control, a premium suspension system, anti-locking disc brakes, and several others.
