It can be understandably difficult when searching for that just-right ride, especially when you've got your eye on a luxury model or two. And with the recent output of high-end SUVs on the market, it may feel overwhelming when deciding which midsize option is best for your lifestyle. Fortunately, the team at Kansas City Audi have the 2019 Audi Q7 to boast and we encourage you to see what it's all about. To prove its merit, we're putting this ride up against three fierce competitors.


Despite other manufacturers' best efforts, not all luxury models are created equal. This is made apparent when you get behind the wheel of the Audi Q7 and accelerate with precision thanks to its 8-speed automatic transmission, which will feel noticeably smoother than the 6-speed transmission inside the 2019 Lexus GX 460. If you've got large items to haul along for the ride, you may not get to bring everything when you choose the 2019 Acura MDX since it only offers up a 3,500-lb. towing capacity1. The Q7 saves the day once again, thanks to the standard 4,400-lb. pulling capacityat your service. Even the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 can't outlast this midsize SUV, because it only delivers an estimated 16/22/18 MPG city/hwy/combined3 fuel economy rating. You can keep trekking in the Q7 with its estimated 19/25/21 MPG city/hwy/combined4 fuel efficiency.

Interior Convenience

It's easy to agree that a vehicle is more than just its motor. It needs to have a few extra bells and whistles to accommodate your everyday needs. Fortunately, the 2019 Audi Q7 has plenty of finishing touches that can make your drives down Truman Road all the more enjoyable. This SUV remains in first place by providing five 12-volt power outlets for your charging needs, while its aforementioned contenders have either two or three standard plugs. Who doesn't love rocking out to their favorite band when they're on their way to work? With the Q7, you will have 10 speakers to fill your cabin with crystal-clear music. Unfortunately, the GLS 450 and MDX both have eight while the GX 460 has nine. We'd also like to note that you'll have plenty of storage space with the Audi Q7's 71.6 cubic ft. of cargo volume while the Lexus model only musters up 64.7 cubic ft. of storage room5.


One final, crucial way to prove that the 2019 Q7 is the winner of the four models is by listing off a few of the many safety features. No exciting specification means anything if you aren't protected, so Audi has made it its mission to go above and beyond when engineering their rides. When inclement weather strikes, the standard rain-sensing wipers will adjust their speed according to the amount of downpour. This feature is only an available option on the Lexus GX 460, but isn't provided on the other competitors. Lastly, the Collision Avoidance Assist6 will provide steering guidance during sharp turns to help you maneuver around any potential fender benders. This component is sure to seal the deal as none of the three competitors offer this on their models.

When it comes to the 2019 Audi Q7 vs the competition in Kansas City, MO, it's clear how brightly this model shines. When you're ready for a test drive, visit Kansas City Audi! Feel free to contact us beforehand.
