Audi vs. BMW: Performance

Between the 2021 Audi Q7 vs. BMW X5, the BMW X5 offers more engine options with higher output overall. So if you want a robust ride in Tigard, all three engine options offer plenty of pep with an 8-speed Sport automatic transmission.

2021 BMW X5 Engine:

  • 335-hp 3.0L I-6 engine
  • 389-hp 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder (total power output with electric motor)
  • 523-hp 4.4L M Performance engine V8 engine

The Audi Q7, on the other hand, only offers two different engines for 2021. And while the Q7 also offers an 8-speed automatic transmission, it can’t quite keep up with the X5 in terms of engine output on the Lake Oswego roads.

  • 335-hp 55 TFSI® quattro® Tiptronic® 3.0L six-cylinder 

Audi vs. BMW: Dimensions

Another key difference between the Audi Q7 vs. BMW X5 is the cabin space. The BMW X5 has seating for 5 passengers in its standard configuration, but you can add a third row to boost your passenger capacity to 7. 

  • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st / 2nd Row): 72.3 cubic feet / 33.9 cubic feet
  • Seating Capacity: 5 seats standard in the interior, 7 seats with optional third row
  • Standard Features: 16-way power front sport seats including 4-way power lumbar support and complimentary BMW Genius service to help with any and all tech features

The Audi Q7 has standard seating for 7 passengers, but lacks the generous cargo space that the BMW X5 has to offer.

  • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st / 2nd /3rd Row): 69.6 cubic feet / 35.7 cubic feet / 14.2 cubic feet
  • Seating Capacity: 7 seats standard
