Range Rover



With plenty of style and high tech features, the 2017 Range Rover and the 2017 Audi Q7 are both standout luxury SUV examples. Either one could meet the needs of Hoffman Estates families looking for a well-equipped vehicle, but only one supplies more performance, capability, and interior comfort.

Standard Performance

If you're in the market for an SUV that will handle both off-road parks and your daily commute, one model will suit you better than the other. Let's see what kind of performance is provided in the base trim:

  • The Range Rover uses a 3.0L V6 engine that delivers 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission.

  • The Audi Q7's 2.0L four-cylinder engine only manages 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission.

For more base trim power, the Range Rover is the better bet.


Interior Capacity

When you purchase an SUV, you'll want to consider how much cargo it can carry. The Range Rover comes with two rows of seating standard, and an optional third row is available. The Audi Q7 comes with three rows standard, making it less versatile if you're hauling large amounts of cargo. In fact, the Range Rover carries more cargo with the seats in place and with them folded down. Your passengers will appreciate the extra room as well with more front and rear head room.


Off-Road Highlights

As a Land Rover vehicle, the Range Rover balances rugged performance with a high standard of luxury. Let's take a look at some of the systems that make the Range Rover well-equipped to handle off-road parks in Schaumburg:

  • All-Terrain Progress Control

  • Terrain Response

  • Four Corner Air Suspension

Sadly, none of those systems are available in the Audi Q7. In addition, the Range Rover is better equipped for towing. In the base trim, the Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 lbs, while the Q7 can only manage 4,400 lbs.
