2018 Audi Q5 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q5 than the Chevrolet Traverse. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, 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). Whether you pick the Audi Q5 or the Chevrolet Traverse, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q5 and the Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Performance
With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi Q5. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Chevrolet Traverse, making the Chevrolet Traverse the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.
