Volvo XC90 vs Audi Q7 vs LR Discovery: Which One Ticks The Most Boxes?

The battle for the best seven-seat premium SUV is harder than ever when you got cars like the latest Audi Q7, the Volvo XC90 and the Land Rover Discovery.

These cars are supposed to be great in almost every level; they should fit everything and everyone with comfort, offer all the latest gizmos and safety features and be made out of “premium-quality” materials. Oh, and also offer lots of performance and good fuel economy, after all they are the definition of a daily driver.

The Audi Q7 is one of the strongest players in the segment as it offers one of the best well-made cabins, a wide range of smooth powertrains and enough room to keep everyone happy. It might not look the most exciting SUV but that’s not necessarily a bad thing for some buyers.

The Land Rover Discovery on the other hand offers more room for those in the third row along with a commanding driving position and a set of off-road skills that would make every rival feel ashamed. But it does look kind of weird, not to mention that the class-leading off-road skills isn’t as popular as it used to be.

Then there’s the Volvo XC90, easily the best-looking out of the three; the Swedish seven-seater comes with a pretty cabin and plenty of tech, including that portrait-style infotainment system. It manages to be premium without copying the Germans and that matters apparently to many customers. Thing is though that these customers will have to choose between a four cylinder-only engine range, and that for some people is a no-go.

Which one of the three is the best? Check out Carwow’s latest review to find out.

      Because is not about good looking. Is about reliability.

  • Shane

    Volvo has some really good looking vehicles right now.

  • Bash

    I like the q7 the most tbh

  • haudit

    I’d choose the Volvo based purely on looks. The Q7 looks more like a jacked up estate car than an SUV, and the Land Rover has more than a hint of ‘arse in the air’ syndrome, which isn’t what you’d call flattering on a car of its size.

    I’d get the disco… who cares if it is unreliable… it’s the only real SUV.

    Volvo all the way. Never the Audi.
