2017 Land Rover Discovery vs Audi Q7 In Battle Of Huge SUVs

By  | 

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery isn’t a brand new model; it is more of an overhaul of the one that came before it. The new version has the aluminium intensive platform and this means that it has lost 1,000lbs.

Even with the reduction in weight the Land Rover Discovery is still a great off the road vehicle and it comes packed with plenty of hardware that is military grade. In North America the vehicle is offered with a choice of two engines. Both are 3 litres but there is the supercharged gas version offering 340 horses and 332 torque and the diesel version that offers 254 horses and 443 torque.

The gas version of the Land Rover Discovery offers up 16 miles in the city and 21 out on the highway. The diesel gives up 21 in the city and 26 when out on the highway. Both vehicles come with the eight speed automatic transmission.

The Audi Q7 is top of the range and this is a luxury SUV that is offered with a stunning design, advanced tech and plenty of helpful safety assistance. It offers the 2 litre turbocharged four cylinder and the 3 litre V6 gas and this offers 333 horses along with 325 torque. The engines come with eight speed automatic transmission and Quattro AWD.

The Land Rover Discovery offers versatility but the Audi is superior in the technology that it offers, more so with the digital instrument cluster.
