Compare the Range Rover Sport to the Audi Q7 & BMW X5

The Range Rover Sport is one of the most luxurious midsize SUVs on the market with its powerful engine options, comfortable cabin, and bold style. There are plenty of options in this class, so what are the benefits to the Range Rover Sport? Let's compare it to some other luxury SUVs, like the Audi Q7 or the BMW X5, and see which model comes out on top at Land Rover Norwood.

Range Rover Sport vs. Audi Q7

Power & Performance

If you're looking for something with plenty of power and capabilities, then the Range Rover Sport is a better choice over the Q7. The standard Range Rover engine is a 3.0-liter V6 that delivers 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Q7 offers only 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Things don't get better for the Q7 as you move up the trim levels; the Range Rover Sport offers a supercharged V8 and a diesel option which are both unavailable on the Q7.

The Range Rover Sport's Four-Wheel Drive system is more powerful than the Q7's AWD and it offers you the ability to optimize your drive for off-road challenges. If you need a luxury SUV with some serious off-road capabilities, then the Range Rover Sport near Brookline is an easy choice to make.


The Q7 does a little better when it comes to its standard tech offerings, but it still doesn't beat out the Range Rover Sport. Standard features on the Range Rover Sport include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, smart device integration, remote engine start, a navigation system, and more. This tech gives you more control of your media, apps, and calls, letting you stay connected without distraction on the road. The Audi Q7 is equipped with plenty of features, but you won't find a Wi-Fi hotspot there to keep you connected while on the go.

The Range Rover Sport is a great option for drivers who need all the latest and greatest tech near Boston.

Range Rover Sport vs. BMW X5

Power & Performance

This is another case where the Range Rover Sport's powerful engine options and off-road capabilities give it a serious advantage. The BMW X5 holds its own a little better than the Q7 with a 300 horsepower, 3.0-liter I-6 engine, but it still doesn't hold a candle to the Sport's supercharged power.

The X5 also does not come standard with AWD or 4WD, meaning you need to upgrade or settle for its RWD system. The Range Rover Sport doesn't limit your off-road capabilities, as four-wheel drive is standard to the lineup.

Size & Design

The Range Rover Sport is all about comfort for your Newton, MA commute, which all starts with a roomy cabin and plenty of convenience features. If you're taller or just want some extra room, then you'll appreciate the Range Rover's extra inches of legroom in the front and second rows.

To keep you comfortable in luxury, the Range Rover uses standard leather seats;  the X5 limits you to standard synthetic material. This lets you relax on long rides and it impresses your passengers with the high-end style.

Touch Pro Duo

One of the most impressive features you'll find on the Range Rover Sport is the 10-inch high-definition dual touchscreens on the Touch Pro Duo. This feature allows you to customize what information you see and easily interact with media, entertainment, and safety features. The standard Rear View Camera is projected onto this screen when you back up. The Range Rover Sport is also standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, allowing you to enjoy your music and apps with ease. The BMW X5 doesn't include either of these features standard.
