2017 Land Rover Discovery vs. 2017 Audi Q7
2017 Audi Q7
Among three-row luxury SUVs, there are a few models that come to mind—including the 2017 Land Rover Discovery and the 2017 Audi Q7. You’ll find plenty of luxury and style to go around in both of these vehicles, but in important areas like cargo space, engine performance, towing, and off-road prowess, the Land Rover Discovery has the edge. Get more details before heading to Land Rover Fort Myers to test out the high-performance Land Rover Discovery.
Engine Performance and Max Towing Capacity
When you want an SUV that can move with the most confidence and tow the biggest load, choose the powerful Land Rover Discovery:
- Land Rover Discovery: The base Land Rover Discovery comes fitted with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that sends out a robust 350 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Those who want more torque and outstanding fuel economy can choose the available turbo-diesel powertrain, which is good for 254 hp and a commanding 443 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Land Rover Discovery is able to handle a towing load of up to 8,201 pounds.
- Audi Q7: Like the Land Rover Discovery, the 2017 Audi Q7 comes standard with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine, but the Audi’s V6 is only capable of a total output of 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, there’s no second engine option offered on the Audi Q7, and towing capacity on this SUV is unable to surpass 7,700 pounds.
Passenger and Cargo Space
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery and the 2017 Audi Q7 are both three-row luxury crossover SUVs that allow you to have up to seven passengers comfortably seated at a time. But when you want the SUV with more room for available cargo, the Land Rover Discovery is the right choice. That’s because the max cargo capacity on the Land Rover Discovery is 77.0 cubic feet, while the max cargo capacity on the Audi Q7 is 71.6 cubic feet.
Off-Road Performance Capabilities
If you’re looking for a luxury SUV that’s also capable of handling serious off-road situations, the Land Rover Discovery is clearly the right option for you:
- Land Rover Discovery: This SUV is a four-wheel drive model that comes standard with single-speed center differential and available with a two-speed transfer case. The Land Rover Discovery can also be purchased with an All-Terrain Progress Control system that lets you set low-speed cruise control on rough terrain.
- Audi Q5: The Audi Q5 is only offered with all-wheel drive, which means power can be sent to separate axles but not to all four wheels individually. There’s an Audi drive select mode with different drive settings, but none of them match the levels available on the Land Rover Discovery. There’s also no transfer case offered on this model.
