2018 Audi Q7 vs the competition

2018 Acura MDX -- A great cost/equipment proposition with a comfortable ride quality.

2018 BMW X5 -- Seemingly capable of everything required from a premium crossover, including keeping a driver involved.

2018 Volvo XC90 -- Handsome in its own way, luxurious and spacious.

Used Mercedes-Benz GL-Class -- The super-capable GL (now renamed the GLS) has an adult-sized third row. A new GLS, however, is more expensive than the Q7. So consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) GL, especially if space is a priority.
