There's not much of a battle in this category, sadly. While the Audi Q7 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers perfectly fine power numbers, the fact of the matter is that the 3.0-liter V6 that powers the Discovery puts far more horsepower and torque at your command.

While the Audi does include standard quattro all-wheel drive on the Q7, the Land Rover Discovery draws on a long, proud heritage of taking on the toughest conditions with style and grace — both on and off the beaten path. Clearly, whether you're just driving to work or if you're heading off on a family adventure, the Land Rover Discovery delivers the better performance of the two.

Comfort and Conveniences

With measurements for passenger space coming in nearly the same in both vehicles, the main difference in interior space is to be found when we compare cargo room. The Land Rover Discover offers more storage space behind the second-row seats, making it the better option when you're taking a group and their luggage on the road. Fold that second-row seat down and the space advantage enjoyed by the Discovery only grows.

In the end, our research indicates that the Land Rover Discovery offers the better value for your luxury SUV dollars. Make the easy trip along I-45 to our Houston Land Rover dealership and examine one in person. Our team is here to help, so don't hesitate to ask!
