Looking for a new luxury SUV, but can't decide between the 2020 Audi Q7 and the 2020 Mazda CX-9? You've come to the right place!

In this comparison by our team at Audi Grapevine, these two popular models will go head to head in all the important ways. Drivers near Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Irving should read on to see which model comes out on top!

Audi Q7 vs Mazda CX-9: Power & Performance

The Audi Q7 is a powerhouse when it comes to performance. This model offers two high-powered engines, including an available 55 TFSI® 3.0L 6-cylinder that pumps out an incredible 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Pair this power with other proper equipment features, and the Q7 will be able to tow up to 7,700 pounds of trailer weight.

Compared to the Q7's capabilities, the Mazda CX-9 falls flat, with just one engine to offer. The Skyactiv®-G 2.5T engine makes just 227 horsepower and can only handle a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when the vehicle is properly equipped. This 2,700-pound difference can mean a step down from a luxurious hard-side camping trailer to a cramped pop-up.

Q7 vs CX-9: Interior & Dimensions

In terms of dimensions, the Audi Q7 and the Mazda CX-9 are relatively evenly matched. Both models can seat up to seven passengers and offer just over 70 cubic feet of cargo space. Use the available hands-free tailgate systems of these models to pack the cargo area in a matter of seconds.

You'll also have similar dimensions in all three rows of these vehicles, with over 41 inches of front-seat legroom and over 38 inches of second-row legroom. For even more space in the second row, opt for available second-row captain's chairs in either model.

What you won't find the in Mazda CX-9 are all the trappings of luxury that the Audi Q7 has to offer. The Q7 can be equipped with Valcona leather seating surfaces and 18-way power contour front seats with heating and ventilation.

Q7 vs CX-9: Advanced Technology Features

There is some overlap when it comes to tech in the Q7 and the CX-9. Both offer several advanced safety features and touchscreen infotainment systems with smartphone integration, navigation with real-time traffic updates, and 360-degree camera capability.

However, the Q7 has more to offer drivers, with its larger screens, more comprehensive coverage, and multi-tasking capability. While the CX-9 gives you just one, the Q7 sports two large infotainment screens on which you can use multiple features at a time.

Additionally, there are several features offered by the Q7 that the CX-9 can't even fathom, like the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit with Google Earth™ and night vision assistant.
