But how does this reputable Land Rover compare to one of its top competitors the Audi Q7? Here’s a side by side comparison of two luxury SUVs and why the Range Rover Sport is the better option for your family.
Performance and Preference
When it comes to high-end performance for the Range Rover Sport, expect nothing shy of superior excellence within engine power. The standard 340-horsepower Supercharged V6 is plenty of power to haul trailers weighing up to 7,716-lbs which is ideal for the family camper or boat. Choose the available 254-horsepower Turbocharged diesel engine, 380-horsepower Supercharged V6, or go green with the option for the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) model which gives drivers 398-horsepower with the 2.0-Liter 296-horsepower engine and the high-capacity 102-horsepower electric motor.
If you’re scouting the Audi Q7, you’ll have only two engine options. The standard 252-horsepower 2.0_liter TFSI® four-cylinder engine which only pulls a trailered weight of 4,400-lbs, and the 333-horsepower 3.0-Liter six-cylinder engine which is only capable of hauling up to 7,700-lbs. Limited power and limited engine choices make the Range Rover Sport the better buy for Performance power.
Trim Level Options
When it comes to finding the right fit for your driving style and family needs, the Range Rover Sport gives drivers a wide variety of trim levels to choose from. With a starting MSRP of $66,750 for the Range Rover Sport SE, prospecting buyers can also choose between the HSE, Supercharged, HSE Dynamic, Supercharged Dynamic, Autobiography Dynamic, and the SVR trim level. The top of the line SVR trim has a base MSRP of $113,600.
Though the Audi Q7 has a starting MSRP of $49,000 for the Premium trim level, the Q7 provides limited choices for drivers who are seeking the epitome of luxury SUV performance. Aside from the Premium base trim, the Audi Q7 is available in the Premium Plus, and Prestige trim levels.
Interior Quality and Versatility
If you’re seeking innovative technology for every commute, the Range Rover Sport offers the Touch Pro™ Duo in-car infotainment system which displays all your multimedia needs and navigation on a ten-inch high-definition touchscreen. Customizing your levels of comfort and driving settings to your liking is easier than ever! The full-color heads-up display is also a handy feature and provides more awareness and readiness while focusing on the road ahead while on your directions at the same time. Simple to use technology and convenient for the whole family!
The Audi Q7 comes with the MMI® All-in touch with handwriting-recognition technology which can become tricky to use and less reliable over time. The Infotainment display screen is also smaller at eight-inches which doesn’t cut it if you’re looking for the latest and greatest technology that you’ll find in the Range Rover Sport.
