2017 Audi Q5 vs. 2016 BMW X1 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the BMW X1, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the BMW X1, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi Q5 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X1. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X1.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much wider than the BMW X1, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q5, which is slightly longer than the BMW X1.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q5 and the BMW X1 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the BMW X1, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the BMW X1.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the BMW X1. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Audi Q5 as you will in the BMW X1.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X1.
