At first glance, it may be difficult to tell the new Audi Q5 vs. Q7 apart. Like many top manufacturers, Audi has recognized the popularity of crossover SUVs, having delivered several standout models for 2017. An increasingly popular style for New Jersey drivers who travel no less frequently on major highways than they do winding suburban streets, we suspect both of these models will impress!
Audi Functionality to Meet NJ Driver Demands
Though they are similar, it’s the little adjustments between the two that actually create quite a big difference in performance and our insightful Audi dealers are happy to walk you through each one.
Size & Style Suited for the Tri-State Region
A frequent determining factor of an Audi lease or purchase may very well be size and capability. If you’re looking for a vehicle that will support your growing children, your golden retriever, and your love for hitting the northern NJ ski slopes, the 2017 Q7 may be your top choice. Seating 7 and offering over 71 cubic feet of cargo space, this vehicle offers more SUV-styling, designed to support active lifestyles. However, if you’re looking for a stylish vehicle for your daily commute to Newark, East Orange, and beyond, the 5-passenger Q5 will do the trick. This vehicle takes a slightly more sedan-like approach to style and offers just over 57 feet of cargo space.
Power & Performance Across Every NJ Terrain
Boasting a more powerful engine to suit its larger frame, the Q7 may be ideal for those accustomed to more rugged terrain. Meanwhile, the Q5’s lighter body makes for excellent navigation across city-like streets. With that being said, if you’re more likely to drive to the Delaware Water Gap than you are to Manhattan, and vice versa, you may consider these details. Fortunately, both offer similar fuel efficiency, achieving 20 city and between 25 and 27 highway MPG.
Safety & Innovation that Audi is Known For
No matter which vehicle you opt for, you’ve got your hand on the wheel of a safety powerhouse. That’s right—both offer a host of safety features that complement luxury technology, making each vehicle an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Commuters will appreciate the features designed to support high-traffic treks along the Garden State Parkway and NJ Turnpike, such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Lane Departure Warning.
A Competitive Price, Worthy of Audi
When it comes to your Q7 vs. Q5 debate, the final determining factor may be the price. As a larger, more versatile vehicle, the Q7 does come in at a higher price tag, coming in with an MSRP of $55,750, compared to the Q5’s $41,825. You may also consider some of the additional Q7 standard features, which come at an additional expense in the Q5. Ultimately, the choice will come down to which style, performance specs, and capabilities meet the demands of your family.
