Compare The New 2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X4 Models

It's a question that a lot before our customers are asking themselves: it's time for a new family SUV, but should you get a spacious and powerful three-row SUV or a smaller, sportier and more efficient two-row SUV? For your consideration, the 2020 Audi Q7. It's our sportiest three-row SUV with a sloping, coupe-inspired roofline and a muscular look. Combined with a powerful turbocharged engine and a more premium interior, it's an even better value than most luxury two-row SUVs. To prove it, we'll compare the 2020 Audi Q7 against the two-row 2020 BMW X4. For just a little bit more, you can add the convenience and capacity of an optional third row, while still getting the powerful performance and dynamic style you crave.

Audi Q7 In Motion

Design & Size Comparison: 2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X4

The 2020 BMW X4 is a sleek, coupe-like SUV with a lower, sloping rear roofline for a more sporty appeal than your typical squared-off SUV. However, that sloping roofline comes at a cost. There's no room for a third row of seats in the 2020 BMW X4, and it provides just 50 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seats folded. By contrast, the 2020 Audi Q7 also has a sporty, coupe-inspired shape, but it still has a convenient third row of seats for up to seven occupants. And when you fold down both rows, the 2020 Audi Q7 offers almost 70 cubic feet of cargo space!

You also get an extra flash of style on the 2020 Audi Q7 from standard dynamic turn indicators. These LED turn signals animate in the direction of your intended turn for a futuristic, premium touch. The 2020 BMW X4 doesn't have animating turn signals at all.

2020 Audi Q7 Touchscreens

Features & Technology Comparison: 2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X4

When you climb inside the 2020 Audi Q7, you find a pair of standard touchscreens, including a larger 10.1" main display and 8.6" secondary display, so you can keep more information and controls at your fingertips. The 2020 BMW X4 comes with a single standard screen, making it less intuitive and harder to use. Furthermore, the 2020 Audi Q7 features both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for your smartphone. In the 2020 BMW X4, you only get Apple CarPlay® -- Android Auto™ isn't available even as an option.

Perhaps best of all, the 2020 Audi Q7 comes with more standard luxury features at the entry-level. Standard heated front seats in the 2020 Audi Q7 will cost you extra on the 2020 BMW X4. So it goes with genuine leather upholstery, too!

Performance: 2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X4

The 2020 Audi Q7 features the same amount of standard horsepower as the 2020 BMW X4, but even more torque, so it'll feel just as responsive and exciting despite its larger size. You can also upgrade to an even bigger engine with 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. That's more torque than both the BMW X4 and the BMW X4 M40i! With that engine and the available towing package, the 2020 Audi Q7 can haul boats, campers and other trailers up to 7,700 lbs. The 2020 BMW X4 isn't available with a factory tow hitch. Both cars come with standard all-wheel drive for superior grip and control in wet or wintery weather.

Both cars can also be equipped with an optional adaptive suspension for an even smoother ride, but only the 2020 Audi Q7 offers optional all-wheel steering. All-wheel steering provides quicker handling response and a tighter turning circle at low speeds while increasing stability at freeway speeds for the most premium ride yet from a sporty SUV.

Audi Q7 Quilted Leather

Ultra-Premium Trim Level: 2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X4

When you upgrade to the 2020 Audi Q7 Prestige trim level, and add optional options packages, you can get the finest family transportation experience around, including comfort and entertainment features the 2020 BMW X4 can't compete with!

For instance, the 2020 BMW X4 has an optional Harman Kardon® surround sound system with 600 watts of power and 16 total speakers. Instead, choose the 2020 Audi Q7 with optional Bang & Olufsen® 3D Advanced Sound System with 23 speakers, and 1,920 watts of sonic power and clarity! Upgraded Valcona Leather seats provide matchless quality and a supple, soft feel. Optional four-zone climate control available on the 2020 Audi Q7 gives more passengers individual climate controls for a level of comfort the 2020 BMW X4 just can't provide.

Why Audi Is A Better Value

With a starting MSRP of $54,800, the 2020 Audi Q7 is priced at a $3,600 premium over the entry-level 2020 BMW X4. But, as we've shown above, the Audi Q7 provides all the same performance and technology as the BMW X4 with a whole lot more space for bigger families! If you've been trying to upgrade to a luxury three-row SUV, but don't want to give up the sporty drive and style of a smaller two-row SUV, the 2020 Audi Q7 might just be the best of both worlds.
