New BMW X7 vs Audi Q7

The Audi Q7 is one of the very best all-rounders you can buy, but BMW is out to better it with its new X7. So, which luxury seven-seater deserves your £75k?...

Driving position, visibility, build quality

Even with the leather-wrapped dashboard, flat-bottomed steering wheel and Alcantara rooflining of Vorsprung spec, the Q7 still looks a bit conservative inside – although it’s incredibly well made.

The X7, meanwhile, can stand alongside the likes of the Range Rover for visual pizzazz. From small touches such as the crystal gear selector and the piping on the leather seats to the expanses of piano black trim pieces across the dashboard, it feels modern, cohesive and, most importantly, special. Outright build quality is almost on a par with the Q7’s, too.

The X7 also provides the kind of commanding driving position that most SUV buyers crave, while both cars come with electrically adjustable front seats, four-way lumbar support and extendable thigh support as standard.
