Compare the Audi Q5 to the BMW X5 at Audi Shreveport

When it comes to an Audi SUV, not many other options can rival the performance, capability, comfort, and convenience the lineup offers. The lineup emphasizes the driver's desire for extreme luxury and value, especially with options like the Audi Q5. While the market for luxury SUVs has boomed over the years, the Audi Q5 continues to showcase its dominance over many other popular models, like the BMW X5. Down below, you will find a comparison of major features that demonstrates how the Audi Q5 leads the way in categories that matter to SUV owners. When you see what is in store, we will happily welcome you at our dealership to explore the Audi Q5 firsthand.

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!
