Considering a luxury SUV for the new year? If you choose either the 2019 Audi Q7 or the 2019 Audi Q5, you're making a good choice. Both SUVs will give you top-notch style, performance, and luxury. The 2019 Q7 enters the market this year with many new and noteworthy features, including a cutting-edge infotainment system with integrated navigation. Also of note in this model year is the addition of a virtual cockpit, which makes you feel like you're behind the wheel of a race car whenever you get in the driver's seat. The latest Q7 gets a revamped interior too, complete with exceptional materials and a higher quality build. Your journeys will be exceptionally smooth and quiet thanks to improved ride technology. As you might expect from Audi, safety technology is also improved this model year. If you get the Q5, you'll be equally impressed. With a now fully digital cockpit, forward-thinking style, and plenty of options for customization, it's no surprise that the 2019 Q5 is voted the #2 luxury compact SUV.

Performance

While both Audi SUVs are obviously stylish and well-equipped, they're equally impressive when it comes to power. The Q7 can pull up to 7,700 pounds, which rivals that of best-in-class pickup trucks. The Q7 is offered with two engines to meet your need for speed. The first is a 2.0 turbocharged engine that generates up to 248 HP. The second is a slightly more powerful 3.0 engine, also turbocharged, that reaches a maximum of 329 HP. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed transmission with automatic gearing. The Q5 is powered by a sole engine, which is the same engine that is the base choice on the Q7. The Q5 has an all-wheel drive layout, and it also comes standard with an automatic transmission.

Appearance

From the outside, both the Q7 and the Q5 are head-turners. The 2019 Q7 features an updated appearance with more pronounced and dramatic wheel arches that highlight any wheels you choose for your vehicle. A hands-free liftgate is another notable exterior feature. LED lights give the Q7 greater visibility and a bolder overall design in this model year. The body of the Q5 features bolder shoulders and a more athletic build in 2019. This SUV also receives the addition of a power liftgate. Like the Q7, it is outfitted with LED lights for more style and visibility.

Features

No matter whether you choose the base trim or the top level, there are plenty of fine features to look forward to in the 2019 Q7 and the 2019 Q5. The Q7's lengthy list of amenities includes a premium, user-friendly infotainment system with navigation. A tilt-sliding panoramic sunroof is standard even at the base level, and the third row seats fold flat. With the higher level trims, you'll add a Bose sound system, a top-mounted camera, and LED interior lighting. There are several packages you can add on too, such as the Warm Weather, which gives you four-zone climate control and ventilated front seats. The Q5 features over 53 cubic feet of storage space in the back. The seats fold flat on this SUV too for convenience. Ambient interior lighting is another highlight of the Q5, and the infotainment system includes smartphone integration, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.
