It's a battle between the Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7! In this helpful comparison created by Century Volvo, the performance, cargo space, and advanced technology features in these two luxury SUVs will go head to head to see which vehicle comes out on top. Drivers in Huntsville, Cullman, and Florence should read on to learn about who'll be crowned the winner to better decide which vehicle offers the amenities best suited to your lifestyle needs.

Customizable and Enhanced Performance

These luxury SUVs allow you to tailor your driving performance to meet the demands of the road to enjoy an efficient and smooth ride. The Volvo XC90 offers four drive modes: Eco, Dynamic, Comfort, and Individual, which allows you to blend the characteristics of the other options to create the ideal mode. While the Audi Q7 does offer several drive modes, as well, it doesn't have the option to blend modes, so you might not get the customized performance you're looking for.

When you select your ideal drive mode in the XC90, an optional Air Suspension with Four-C active chassis adjusts the suspension as needed. This electronically controlled dampening system makes about 500 calculations per second of current road conditions and driving style to create the ideal balance of comfort and control. The Q7 offers a similar system, but it's selectable and doesn't monitor the road the way the system in the XC90 does.

Room for Everything

As you enjoy the superior performance of your next vehicle, relax in its spacious interior. Both vehicles offer seating for up to seven passengers so you can easily fit your family and friends. When you're traveling alone, you can fold down the second and third row seating to gain access to additional cargo space. The Volvo XC90 has a maximum cargo space of 85.6 cubic feet though, while the Audi Q7 only provides 71.6 cubic feet, so you might have a hard time fitting your bulkier items.

Additionally, the XC90 allows you to conveniently fold the third seat flat from the rear tailgate with just a simple touch of a button. Your items will also be secure thanks to shopping bag hooks and eyelets on the floor, along with a cargo net to secure larger objects. Unfortunately, the Q7 doesn't offer these rear storage amenities.

Park Your SUV with Ease

Parking's a breeze thanks to the advanced technological features found in the Volvo XC90 and Audi Q7. The available Park Assist Pilot in the XC90, and comparable system in the Q7, can measure potential parking spaces to let you know if they're the ideal fit. Then, it'll steer your car into the space while you just operate the gears and braking according to the screen prompts on your infotainment display.

When you're ready to pull out of your tight parking space though, the XC90 is better equipped to give you a helping hand. With the available 360° Surround View Camera, monitor your car's immediate surroundings through your 9-inch Sensus Touchscreen. The Q7 does have a rearview monitor, but it doesn't provide a bird's eye view of your vehicle like this system in the XC90, so you may not get a complete view of all potential obstacles.

Volvo XC90 vs Audi Q7: Test Drive the Winner!

In a showdown of these two SUVs, the Volvo XC90 drives away the winner. This refined vehicle offers a more customizable driving experience, interior space, and advanced parking systems, and the Audi Q7 just couldn't keep up.
