Land Rover Discovery vs. Audi Q7: Which One Wins?

You need a luxury SUV that can enhance your daily drives throughout the Brentwood, TN region. However, you also need to consider the performance of your vehicle when you need to take it out on the highway or over uneven terrain. In the match-up between the Land Rover Discovery and the Audi Q7, which luxury SUV comes out on top regarding performance? The new Land Rover Discovery SUV features a 3.0L V-6 engine that generates up to 330 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque for your drives. You can also opt for an available 3.0L turbodiesel V-6 that nets you 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Both powertrain options net you more power than the Audi Q7 when you opt for the Land Rover SUV. You'll find that the new Audi Q7 only gets you 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque with its standard 4-cylinder 2.0L TFSI engine. Alternatively, you could upgrade to the 6-cylinder 3.0L TFSI engine that gives you a maximum 329 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.

Now that we've compared the performance of the Land Rover versus the Audi SUV, let's take a look at the design of both vehicles. While it's true that the Audi Q7 offers a slightly larger length than the Land Rover Discovery, you'll find that the interiors remain nearly the same size. You can fit more cargo into the back of the new Discovery, with its 88.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the third-row seats. The new Q7 only offers 71.6 cubic feet, which you'll certainly notice when you need to load up the back with luggage, band instruments, or sporting equipment. It's clear that families in the Franklin, TN area can benefit from choosing the Discovery instead of the Q7 SUV.


Consider the Volvo XC90 vs. Land Rover Discovery

Take your family on more adventures in the Land Rover Discovery. The Volvo XC90 and the Land Rover Discovery both serve as suitable options for transporting up to seven passengers to destinations in the Smyrna, TN area, but how do they perform? The new Discovery comes standard with a 3.0L V-6 that gets you 330 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and the 2019 Volvo XC90 only offers 250 horsepower with the model's 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. If you want the added confidence of all-wheel drive (AWD) for your excursions throughout the Nashville, TN region, then you'll be delighted to discover that AWD comes standard on the Land Rover SUV. The new Volvo SUV, on the other hand, comes standard as a front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicle. Finally, if you decide to tow equipment, such as a small boat, bicycles, or other recreational vehicles, then you'll want to go with the Land Rover Discovery. The Discovery offers a generous maximum towing capacity of 8,201 pounds, more than twice the 4,000 pounds offered by the Volvo XC90.

Additionally, you might have heard that our Land Rover vehicles have a bit of a reputation as adventure vehicles. If you'd like the freedom to explore all kinds of terrain, whether inside the limits of Hendersonville, TN or up the coast, then you'll want to choose the new Discovery SUV. The Land Rover Discovery features excellent off-road features that increase your potential for forging a new path. Wade Sensing technology and the Terrain Response® 2 system do not come as standard or optional features on the Volvo SUV. However, you can enjoy Hill Descent Control on both vehicles. If you're always up for a new adventure, then it's clear to see that the Land Rover Discovery offers you more features and versatility than the Volvo XC90.
