BMW of Westlake Compares BMW X5 v Audi Q7

As a dealership, BMW of Westlake is proud to compare 2021 BMW X5 against competitor Audi Q7. This speaks to a certain pride in the BMW brand, and the confidence to present an exercise of comparison.



  • A 3.0L, inline six-cylinder proprietary TwinPower Turbo gas-fueled engine joined with an eight-speed transmission will earn 21/26 mpg (city/highway), and 335 hp in those X5 40i models. Acceleration here stands at 5.3-seconds, from 0 to 60 mph. BMW X5 M50i exhibits a 4.4L, eight-cylinder and horsepower of 523.
  • The hybrid X5 xDrive45e is fitted with a combination 3.0L, inline six-cylinder fuel-powered engine and electric motor for lessened emissions and 50 mpge in combined fuel economy.


  • Safety features are largely intuitive in terms of available Active Cruise Control and Traffic Jam Assistant. Standard is Active Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning for a lessening of driver stress and safety for guests. There's also Hill Descent Control, electric power-steering and rear-wheel-drive for added handling.
  • An advanced BMW iDrive 7.0 operating system enhances connectivity to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. A digitized instrument cluster and central information display lend a space travel feel to driving earthly roads. Lighting the way are available, adaptive LED headlights for a striking front fascia. There's ambient interior lighting, panoramic moonroof, accented by luxurious high-gloss wood trimming.

BMW Ultimate Care

  • All factory-suggested maintenance is covered for three-years or 36,000-miles, whichever arrives first. This work is performed at authorized BMW centers by technicians trained in BMW servicing protocols.
  • For a single payment of $199, selecting BMW Ultimate Care Oil Services provides for three-years of unlimited oil servicing. Other pay-in-advance, tiered programs will save you up to 30% when keeping with maintenance dates.

Audi Q7


  • To start, there's a weakened 2.0L, four-cylinder earning only 248 hp. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes 6.9-seconds, making it more sluggish than BMW X5. Like BMW X5, there's an eight-speed transmission, but a much reduced fuel economy of 19/23 mpg (city/highway), in comparison.
  • With no hybrid version of Q7, you're at the mercy of fuel and ever-fluctuating prices. Not so with BMW X5 xDrive45e, where there's the convenience of electric powering and a fueled option when needed.


  • Like BMW X5, there's room for seven guests. A six-month trial subscription to Audi connect® PRIME and PLUS services pale in comparison to BMW TeleServices, which are free-of-charge and work in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive servicing. With BMW ConnectedDrive, you have full integration of mobile devices, smart-home technologies and BMW X5's intelligent interfacing.
  • With limited storage space, you're encouraged to purchase additional Audi Genuine Accessories of racks and bulky rooftop containers. Professional installation is recommended though dependent upon the model's ability to host extraneous equipment.

Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty

  • Audi Q7 affords more competitiveness in a limited warranty comprising four-years or 50,000-miles, whichever comes first. But there are caveats in small print to mindful of, with the suggestion of contacting an Audi dealership to learn more.
  • Parts will be subject to taxes, and paid at the time of any maintenance date. An Audi dealer will also set final price as it pertains to what is covered under warranty.
