2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 Audi A7

Who doesn’t want to be an owner of a luxury car brand like Audi or Porsche? And especially when you have some great options like the 2018 Audi A7 and the 2018 Porsche 911. Both are tough rivals, but let’s dig a little deep to learn more about what they have to offer.

Design & Style

Design and styling are perfect for both the models. The 2018 Audi A7 is a four-seater vehicle with great visibility and spacious seats. The rear-seat headroom is confined, thanks to the sloping roofline. The front seats have to be slid forward, in order to make leg space at the back. The cabin is pretty good, although you will find some hard plastics as well.

The 2018 Porsche 911 is a 4-seater model with plenty of space and comfort across both rows of seating. There is ample legroom and headroom, even for tall passengers. If you are looking for more comfort, consider upgrading to power-adjustable seats. Top quality materials and leather upholstery make up a pretty good interior.

Technology & Safety

A couple of important parameters to consider when purchasing a car is technology and safety. Some standard features in the 2018 Audi A7 include a sunroof, Bluetooth, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MMI infotainment system. The system is not something you can master in first use.

The 2018 Porsche 911, on the other hand, comes with a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, Bluetooth, navigation, Wi-Fi hot spot and Apple CarPlay. The system is quite easy to use and it comes standard with some great safety features including rearview camera and parking assistance.


Performance is another crucial factor to take into account when purchasing a vehicle. The 2018 Audi A7 comes equipped with a V6 340 HP engine, while higher trims offer V8 engine that can put out 450-605 HP. Although they deliver top speeds, mileage is on the lower side.

In case of Porsche 911, you have multiple engine options, with the base model offering enough power to deliver smooth acceleration with all the strength you need from a vehicle like this. A 7-speed manual transmission comes standard in all the models, while automatic transmission is available.

The Bottom Line

Both Porsche and Audi are of great brand value with the key highlights including the design elements and performance metrics. 911 has an edge in terms of engine options and smooth handling, which is not quite up to the mark with Audi A7. If you are looking for a good investment, make sure you are investing in a car like Porsche.
