Audi Q5 vs. BMW X5: Interior Design and Features

When you take a seat in the Audi A6, you will see that it is more than just another luxury sedan. The interior enjoys a standard leather seating trim partnered with Dark Brown Walnut Wood inlays for a truly impressive design that assures a luxurious look. Both the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class are standard with leatherette seating trim, requiring you to pay more to unlock leather options. The Audi and Mercedes-Benz sedans are standard with heated front seats, while the BMW sedan does not offer the same feature standard. All three models offer similar headroom and legroom for the front row, but the Audi A6 keeps your rear-seat passengers comfier with more second-row legroom.

The Audi's tech setup is intuitive and innovative, allowing you to control your experience with an array of dynamic features. All models are standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, but the Audi A6 also offers ambient lighting - a feature that is missing from the BMW 5 Series.

Audi Q5 vs. BMW X5: Performance

When it comes to power and performance, the Audi Q5 and BMW X5 hold their own with impressive options underneath the hood. The Audi Q5 offers two engine options, with a plug-in hybrid available to help you avoid the inconvenience of frequent stops at a gas pump. The BMW X5 does offer more powerful engine options, but it sacrifices efficiency to do so. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharge Audi engine offers 23/28 mpg city/highway, while the BMW only manages 21/26 mpg city/highway.

The defining point of the Audi Q5 lineup is the standard and legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system. This system provides excellent traction and helps you grip the road better when taking corners. Even rain or snow-slicked roads are less of a problem thanks to this robust and hardy all-wheel drive system. The BMW X5 offers all-wheel drive, but you need to pay extra to unlock it.

Audi Q5 vs. BMW X5: Safety

Both lineups take the safety of you and your passengers seriously, which is why the Audi Q5 and BMW X5 have earned impressive five-star overall safety ratings from NHTSA. Each lineup also offers a variety of standard and available driver assistance features to help you drive with confidence. The Audi Q5 comes with a few available features that you won't find in the BMW lineup, including Traffic Sign Recognition. This feature helps you stay aware of speed limits and other special conditions, which the BMW lacks with its Speed Limit Info.

Audi Q5 vs. BMW X5: Value

There is no comparison when it comes to the value of these two SUVs. The Audi Q5 starts at $43,300, while the BMW X5 balloons its cost to $59,400. The BMW X5 has a lot of new features for its latest model lineup, but it still falls behind the Audi Q5. The Q5 comes standard with all-wheel drive, more interior comforts, and plenty of the technology that the X5 can't quite match. The cost goes up even more when you want to match the Audi Q5. The new Audi Q5 is a better choice for those drivers who want to get more bang for their buck!

Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC: Exterior Style

The Audi Q5 immediately separates itself from the competition with dynamic styling that reflects its athletic capabilities. For example, the Q5 features a standard spoiler, bold grille, and ruggedly sporty lowered air inlets, all of which set it apart from the more conventional looks of the GLC. The Mercedes-Benz GLC doesn't look nearly as sleek or attractive as the Q5 does, with its outdated form and odd proportions.

For an even more stylish look, with an aggressively raked roof and 19-inch wheels, opt for the available Q5 Sportback variant.

Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC: Power Comparison

Backing up its style with plenty of substance, the Audi Q5 boasts a standard 2.0-liter turbo TFSI® engine that delivers 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. With this engine and a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission, the Q5 can power 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and tow up to 4,400 pounds.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC carries an engine with similar torque and slightly less horsepower, but its weaker towing abilities and slower 0-60 time are easily outclassed by the Q5.

Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC: All-Wheel Drive Availability

Every Audi Q5 model comes standard with a secret weapon for improved agility and confidence: quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology. This advanced system automatically switches the Q5 from FWD to AWD whenever extra traction is needed, then switches back to FWD to preserve efficiency.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC also offers an AWD system, but there's a catch: It's only offered as an available option, so you'll need to pay extra to get the great grip that the Q5 gives you as a standard inclusion.

Audi Q5 vs. Volvo XC60: Performance

For thrilling and capable performance, slide behind the wheel of the Q5. This SUV features a standard 2.0-liter turbo TFSI® engine that puts out 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The result: fast acceleration and the ability to tow up to 4,400 pounds.

The XC60 can't keep up, offering lower standard horsepower and torque ratings along with towing capacity that falls short of the Q5 by nearly 1,000 pounds.

Audi Q5 vs. Volvo XC60: All-wheel Drive Availability

The Audi Q5 demonstrates its advantage over the Volvo XC60 with standard quattro® all-wheel drive on every model. Designed with special ultra® technology, this system knows exactly when to change from FWD to AWD and back again, giving you a balance of precise traction when you need it and efficient performance the rest of the time.

The Volvo XC60 does offer an AWD system of its own. However, this feature doesn't come standard and doesn't include quattro® tech - making you pay more for a system that offers less.

Audi Q5 vs. Volvo XC60: Fashionable Design

Attractive design should be a basic requirement for any luxury SUV - and the Audi Q5 clears this bar with ease. For example, it's available in a stunning Sportback variant that boasts a sleekly curved roof, 19-inch five-double-arm/bi-color wheels, and athletic styling touches that clue you in to the high-performing potential that awaits under the hood.

The Volvo XC60 doesn't come close to this sense of style and even looks a little dull when compared side-by-side to the Q5.
