Taka.  Can't say.  Haven't driven the 4.4 litr version.  It's no torque monster like the Diesel Tourag, but it does get up and go well for it's size.

  Are you saying that it drives better than an X5? Which model?

  I got to drive an X5 4.4 pretty hard and it definitely sets a very high standard for SUVs. The Porsche Cayenne S and Turbo are even better. The Infiniti FX 35/45 are about the equal of the X5 (in some ways better, some ways worse- like cargo space) and slightly below in terms of feel to the Cayenne IMO. 

  If the Q7 is better than the X5, I definitely have to drive one.
