What Does the 2015 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI Price Offer?

August 21st, 2015 by

Acura MDXWe know that Metro Detroit drivers are willing to spend more when it comes to quality, but we think you should ask just what it is you get for the 2015 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI price. Let’s compare a competing crossover – the 2016 Acura MDX – so that you can decide if the Audi’s features make sense for its cost.

Compare the Value

One of the easiest ways to measure a luxury crossover’s value is by looking at its starting price and comparing it to a competitor:

  • The 2015 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI has a price of $53,400 (MSRP), but if you put its amenities at the same level of the MDX, the Q7 would cost $66,725.
  • The 2016 Acura MDX has a base price of only $42,865 (MSRP).*

That’s a pretty significant advantage for the Acura crossover, but it’s just the start. After comparing the crossovers’ prices, look to a value expert like ALG and compare its estimated residual value:

  • The 2016 Acura MDX has an ALG residual value of 62% at 36 months and 45% at 60 months.
  • The 2015 Q7  3.0 TDI residual value ratings are 47% at 36 months of ownership and 40% at 60 months of ownership.

As a last measure of value, compare the warranties of these crossovers. The MDX has a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, but Audi’s powertrain warranty only covers you for 48 months or 50,000 miles.

Acura Features More Amenities

You might expect the Audi Q7 3.0 TDI to have a superior features package or some advantage to make up for the price, and yet you can find all of these features on the MDX, which require an upgrade or are unavailable on the Audi:

  • One-touch power moonroof
  • Driver-side memory settings
  • AcuraLink telematics
  • Rearview camera system
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Noise and sound cancellation

That’s just the start of the advantages; the Acura even has a more powerful engine than the Audi.
