BMW X5 VS. AUDI Q7 & Volvo XC90


Westlake Drivers Find the 2018 BMW X5 Offers More Than the Competition

Driving a luxury SUV should be a luxury experience filled with comfort, performance, and capability. Drivers from Westlake, Lorain, Rocky River, Avon Lake, and North Olmsted find that the BMW X5 best delivers this luxury experience. While coming to their decision on a new BMW X5 they most likely compare it with the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, and for all that these luxury SUVs offer, they just don't stack up against the BMW X5, which you'll see below.

BMW X5 vs. Audi Q7

  • Performance: Luxury performance vehicles should perform beyond our expectations and that's just what the BMW X5 does. Offering greater power with every engine option you get greater standard and available horsepower and torque than the Q7. The BMW X5 provides a standard 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque with an available 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
  • Efficiency: Efficiency is key, whether your traveling long distance or just your daily commute. The BMW X5 offers standard fuel-efficiency that matches the Q7 but if you want true efficiency the BMW X5 has options. You can gain greater torque and efficiency with the BMW X5 twin turbo diesel engine or drastically improve your range with the BMW X5 hybrid option.
  • Comfort and Capability: The luxury experience of driving a vehicle comes from your comfort within the cabin. The BMW X5 offers greater headroom, legroom, and shoulder room for you and your passengers. The BMW X5 gives you greater capability with your comfort as well, with 76.7 cubic-feet of cargo space you will have more utility than in the Audi Q7.

BMW X5 VS. Volvo XC90

  • Performance: A large part of luxury is having a choice, and this is an area that no other luxury SUV comes close to the BMW X5 in, especially when you compare the powertrain options. It has six-cylinder, eight-cylinder, diesel, and plug-in hybrid engine options while the Volvo XC90 only has four-cylinder or plug-in hybrid options for Westlake car shoppers. When comparing these engines, you'll see that the BMW X5 comes standard with one that has more horsepower and torque than the Volvo XC90, and the X5's V8 engine has the most horsepower and torque of any options between the two.
  • Design: Both models can fit up to seven passengers, and they offer reclining second-row seats for extra legroom, but a few small differences make the BMW X5 the winner in this category. It has more head and shoulder room for Lorain passengers in each row, so they're less likely to bump elbows or have to tilt their heads. If you have a boat you want to put out on the lake or any other type of trailer, the BMW X5 is more prepared to help you tow because it has a towing capacity nearly 1,000 pounds above that of the Volvo XC90.
  • Technology and Features: North Olmsted techies that want the newest automotive features in their next car will find that both have some of the smartest to offer, but again it's the minute differences that put the BMW X5 on a different level of luxury. You can adjust the front seats in more ways than those of the Volvo XC90, so you're more likely to find that perfect driving position, and the BMW X5 offers a 10.2-inch touchscreen that is easier to navigate than the 8-inch touchscreen of the Volvo XC90. Plus, if you're transporting kids, they can enjoy a show on the available rear seat entertainment system of the BMW X5, which the Volvo XC90 doesn't offer.
