Land Rover Defender vs Audi Q7

See How the Land Rover Defender Outdoes the Audi Q7 in Huntington, NY

A lot of luxury SUVs have refined materials, muscular engines, and roomy interiors, but most of them can't handle rough terrain or snow-covered roads. The new Land Rover Defender is one of those rare SUVs that's just as suitable for climbing steep hills as it is for a night on the town in Huntington, NY. The new Audi Q7 is also a well-appointed luxury SUV, but we think it doesn't quite match the performance and utility of the Land Rover Defender. Keep reading to see why a new Defender from Land Rover Huntington should be your next SUV.

The New Land Rover Defender vs. the New Audi Q7

  • The Defender Has More Standard Horsepower: If you want to be able to pass other vehicles on Long Island, get an SUV with a powerful engine. The Land Rover Defender comes standard with a turbocharged 296-horsepower four-cylinder engine that gives it plenty of pep. A turbocharged 395-horsepower six-cylinder motor is available for speedier acceleration. The Audi Q7's standard engine is a 248-horsepower four-cylinder motor. Stronger engines are available, but you have to pay more to get them.
  • The Defender Has Better Off-Road Capability: The Land Rover Defender is one of the most capable off-road SUVs on the market. Every Defender model comes with a two-speed transfer case, an adaptive air suspension, a terrain response system, and hill descent control. Huntington drivers who enjoy going off the beaten path will like the Defender's off-road front-view camera, which helps them see obstacles directly under the front bumper. The Audi Q7 comes with all-wheel drive, but it only has 7.7 inches of ground clearance. The Defender's adaptive air suspension allows it to have as much as 11.5 inches of ground clearance.
  • The Defender Has a Higher Towing Capacity: If you ever want to pull a boat, camper, or trailer along on a trip, you need an SUV with solid towing capability. The Audi Q7 can tow up to 1,695 pounds when properly equipped. People on Long Island will appreciate that the Land Rover Defender can tow a whopping 8,201 pounds when properly equipped.
  • The Defender Has More Cargo Space: When you take your luxury SUV on excursions, you want to have room to bring your camping supplies, suitcases, or sports gear. The Audi Q7 has 30.5 cubic feet behind the second row of seats and 72.4 cubic feet of total cargo space. Huntington drivers will like that the Land Rover Defender 110 models have 34 cubic feet of room behind the rear seats and 78.8 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded.
  • The Defender Comes with a Wireless Device Charger: When you're on the go, you want to always have a fully charged smartphone or tablet on hand. The Land Rover Defender comes standard with a wireless device charging pad so that people on Long Island can recharge their devices on vacations. You'll have to spend more for a higher trim to get an Audi Q7 with a wireless charging pad.
  • The Defender Comes with a Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel and Shift Knob: A leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and class and comfort to everyday driving. These features come standard on the Land Rover Defender, but they aren't available on the Audi Q7.
