2018 Audi Q7 vs Volvo XC90

Are you ready to upgrade to a vehicle with that extra storage space without the bulkiness of a full-size SUV? If so, you need a crossover. These versatile vehicles are a blast to drive through the streets of West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach, but finding the right one for your needs can be hard. The crossover market is incredibly popular with so many different models available.

The 2018 Audi Q7 and the 2018 Volvo XC90 are two of the best crossovers on the market, but only one can be right for you. Learn the differences between these two luxury crossovers in our Audi Q7 vs Volvo XC90 comparison and discover which is best suited for your needs.


The performance of a crossover is what separates it from a bulky SUV.  Both of these can perform, but the 2018 Audi Q7 offers a bit more power. The Q7 has a slight edge at the base level with 252 horsepower compared to the XC90's 250 horsepower, but the difference increases as you advance in trim level. The 2018 Volvo XC90 can be upgraded to a turbo engine with 316 horsepower, but the Q7's supercharged V6 features an impressive 333 horsepower.

Don't be afraid to take your Q7 to the beach. With Audi quattro all-wheel drive, you can conquer rough terrain like sand without a problem. The Volvo XC90 can come with all-wheel drive as well, but it's not powered by the advanced quattro drivetrain and it doesn't come standard on all models.


Both of these crossovers are classified as luxury due to their interiors. These beautifully designed interiors both feature leather upholstery and power seats, but the 2018 Audi Q7 can offer a bit more room with 41.7 inches of legroom while the 2018 Volvo XC90 can only offer 40.9. If you're a tall person, the choice is clear.

 Surprisingly, the floor of the Volvo XC90 is covered by a rough gray carpeting that you wouldn't expect to find on a crossover manufactured in this decade. In contrast, the Audi Q7 features soft dark colored carpet that complements the leather and is soft to the touch.


One of the most appealing factors of any luxury crossover is the technology. These advanced crossovers feature some of the latest and greatest in technology like digital instrument displays. The Volvo XC90's available digital instrument display comes in at an impressive 12.3 inches and can show phone information, directions, road signs and more.  The Audi Q7's digital instrument display has been dubbed the virtual cockpit, and can do all the same as the XC90's and more.

Most impressively, the Q7 features the innovative Audi MMI system. This handy system located conveniently where your right hand would naturally fall allows you to control nearly every aspect of the car. It even features handwriting recognition technology, so you can simply write your entry on the touchpad with your finger rather than selecting every individual character. The XC90 offers no similar feature.
