The Range Rover Sport Supercharged offers optional Collision Mitigation by Braking, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Q7 doesn't offer crash mitigation brakes.

The Range Rover Sport offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Q7 only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

Both the Range Rover Sport and the Q7 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The Range Rover Sport offers active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The Q7 doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover Sport uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Q7, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover Sport Supercharged offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Audi doesn’t offer an active suspension on the Q7.

The Range Rover Sport Supercharged performs Car and Driver’s emergency lane change maneuver 9 MPH faster than the Q7 S line Prestige (61.5 vs. 52.5 MPH).

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover Sport’s turning circle is 1.7 feet tighter than the Q7’s (37.7 feet vs. 39.4 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Sport has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Q7 (8.9 vs. 8.1 inches), allowing the Range Rover Sport to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Range Rover Sport’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. An easy entry system costs extra on the Q7.

On a hot day the Range Rover Sport’s driver can lower the front windows using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Q7 can’t use the remote to operate the windows.
