2019 Q7 vs Pilot: Safety Features

As true family haulers, the 2019 Q7 and Pilot put safety on a pedestal. These SUVs each earned an NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, the highest honor the organization offers. After passing a series of rigorous crash tests, the Honda and Audi SUVs have proven the quality of their engineering and passive safety.

  • Adaptive Cruise Assist
  • Active Lane Assist
  • Emergency braking (Audi pre-sense® front)
  • High-beam assistant

While these features are nice, the Audi Q7 goes above and beyond with some goodies you won't find on the Pilot. In the event of a predicted impact, Audi pre sense® basic can prepare you. It will start to close the windows and sunroof, as well as pretension the front safety belts.

SUV Performance Specifications

You'll need a reliable engine to power you from Point A to Point B. The Audi Q7 and Honda Pilot deliver with vigorous powertrains. The Pilot runs on a muscly V6 with 280 horsepower on tap. You'll have no trouble getting up to speed in any situation, but the Q7 has even more aptitude.

Its available supercharged V6 delivers an outstanding 329 horsepower. This powerhouse takes you from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as 5.7 seconds! Pair that potential with quattro® all-wheel drive, and you have an SUV that's tractive and fun to drive at the same time.

Test drivers have found both vehicles smooth and easy to maneuver. The Q7 even offers an adaptive air suspension add extra smoothness. Its available all-wheel steering lets you cut down the turn radius even more.

2019 Q7 vs 2019 Pilot: Interior & Technology

With three rows of seats and plenty of space, the 2019 Q7 and Pilot are cozy and endlessly versatile. Power front seats and leather upholstery are offered for premium comfort and style. The Audi Q7, a luxury SUV, even offers deluxe Valcona leather and the treat of massaging front seats.

For the kids in the back, these vehicles offer rear-seat entertainment systems. Watch your favorite Blu-ray™ movies or stream audio! The Pilot features a single screen that folds downward from the cabin roof. The display is crystal clear, but the angle may be less than ideal for the most interested passengers.

By contrast, available rear entertainment in the Audi Q7 features dual touchscreens that mount on the back of the front-seat headrests. Not only is the angle better, but passengers can engage directly with the screens-even detach and use them outside the vehicle!
