Low mileage, but not unexpected in a vehicle of such weight. Tire wear is also on the excessive side. see full Audi Q7 review

The 3.0L i6 is rather underpowered, and it's hard for me to squeeze even 22 mpg out of my X5. Most of the time, I get close to 20. Most V8 X5s from this generation get 16-18 mpg. see full BMW X5 review

It gets about 16 mpg in town and about 19-20 on the highway. For the amount of performance I should not complain but I would love a SUV that got about 30 see full BMW X5 review
