Discover The Differences Between The Volvo XC90 And The Audi Q7

When you're looking for a luxury family-sized SUV you'll most likely come across both the exquisite Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7. These large SUVs offer plenty of space, with seven seats and a versatile cargo area, and come with the lavish features and helpful tech our Saint Paul and Minneapolis drivers are looking for in an SUV.

To truly know which one is best for you, here are a few comparisons of the two.

The Volvo XC90 Vs The Audi Q7 


Both models come with an impressive array of powertrain options, including an available all-wheel drive system on each. The biggest difference is that the Volvo XC90 also contains a plug-in hybrid version that will save our Edina and Golden Valley drivers even more money as they drive. The Audi Q7 does not have a hybrid model available.


While both the Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7 come with an ample amount of space for their passengers, the Volvo XC90 raises the bar on the cargo area. You'll find up to 85.7 cubic-feet of cargo space in the Volvo XC90
while the Audi Q7 only contains up to 69.7 cubic-feet. You may not notice the difference until you're trying to pack for a picnic in Bloomington or for an overnight stay in Minnetonka, but you will love the added space when you do.


Volvo is known for their safety features and makes many of these technological advancements a standard feature in every trim. While the Audi Q7 does include similar safety tech, you won't find such programs as Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, or Cross-Traffic Alert as an included feature in every trim. These are all added into even the base trim level of the Volvo XC90.
