If you thought that the fight between sport luxury cars is interesting, then it means that you have never seen the fight between to real luxury and upscale cars in the Sport Utility Vehicle category. SUVs are the greatest for families and for active leisure, and we couldn’t pick any other but just the most famous and exclusive in the class – the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Audi Q7, both models from year 2013.
The standard price for Audi will be $46,800, while Range Rover Sport will cost about half as much, $60,500. Therefore if the price is the main determinant for you, you already know the winner. But we dig in further. The standard engine that land Rover equipped with its new SUV Sport is the 5.0-Liter V8 capable of 375hp. The Audi Q7 in turn got just 3.0L 280hp V6. So now we know where the $20,000 actually went. However, Audi can offer you greater fuel efficiency. It offers you 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, while Range Rover Sport can get you only for 13 mpg in the city and for 18 on the highway. Both cars got the 4×4 wheel drive and standard four valves.
So as we see, even though one can find some pluses and some minuses in each of the cars, we tend more to the powerful one, and so Range Rover Sport wins the fight!
