2018 Audi Q7 vs. 2018 Range Rover Vela

Engines
When it comes to the source of power, the 2018 Audi Q7 has a variety of engine options ranging from a 248-horsepower turbo-four or a 329-horsepower supercharged V6 engine. The 2018 Range Rover Velar also has different configurations ranging from a 247-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine to a 380-horsepower V6 engine. While the Range Rover wins the battle in terms of engine options, there is much left to be compared.

Performance
With reliability and commitment in its steering and breathtaking acceleration, the Q7 is your best bet; be it a highway or an uncharted trail. The Q7 also offers engaging handling, well-weighted steering, and a comfortable and relaxing ride. The Velar, on the other hand, offers more agility, stability and a smoother ride on the highway. Though both the cars weigh almost the same, the brakes on the Q7 are more responsive than the Velar.

Features
Talking about interior quality, while the Velar features a more modern approach to design, the Q7 chooses to be classic in this sense. Nonetheless, the Q7 has standard eight-way power adjustments, and heated front seats. The Velar further features Hill Descent Control (HDC) as standard along with the optional Terrain Response 2. The Q7, on the other hand, features Deep Tinted Glass, metal-Look Grille, and auto-theft deterrent.

The Verdict
While both the SUVs capture the legacy of their manufacturers to the hilt, the Audi Q7 seems to have an edge over its arch rival on some of the key parameters.
