For years now, many drivers around Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton, New York, have preferred luxury SUVs to standard cars. That's why the 2019 Audi Q7 and the 2019 Volvo XC90 are both such great choices.

We invite you to read this comparison, and then reach out to our Audi Ithaca team with any questions.

2019 Audi Q7 vs 2019 Volvo XC90: Engine Power

When it comes to 2019 Audi Q7 engines, you've essentially got two options: power and way more power.

  • 45 TFSI® (2.0T) Engine: 248 horsepower (5,000-6,000 RPM), 273 lb-ft of torque (1,600-4,500 RPM)
  • 55 TFSI® (3.0T) Engine: 329 horsepower (5,500-6,500 RPM), 325 lb-ft of torque (2,900-5,300 RPM)

Best of all, regardless of which engine you choose, it'll transmit its power to the drive wheels via an 8-speed Tiptronic® transmission with a quattro® all-wheel drive system, maximizing efficiency and traction.

Speaking of efficiency, what's the fun of all that power without the potential to save a bunch of money at the pump? The Audi Q7 has a combined rating of up to 21 miles per gallon.1 Volvo's ratings are great, too.

Unfortunately, while Volvo's T5 AWD layout can compete with the Audi base model in terms of HP (at 248), it can't in terms of torque - it only kicks out 258 lb-ft of torque, compared to the 273 lb-ft up above.

Interior Dimensions: Passenger Room & Cargo Space

How much space can you expect in the 2019 Audi Q7? 39.9 inches of front headroom and 41.7 inches of front legroom, as well as 35.9 inches of rear headroom and 29.2 inches of rear legroom. That's not even counting cargo space, which starts at 14.2 cubic feet; put the rear seatbacks up, and that number jumps to 35.7 cubic feet; fold them and stow them away completely, and it balloons to 69.9 cubic feet.

On the other hand, you've got the 2019 Volvo XC90's layout: merely 38.9 inches of front headroom and 40.9 inches of front legroom. In other words, the driver and copilot will feel more cramped in the Volvo.
