2017 Audi Q5 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Traverse, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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). The Audi Q5 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi Q5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Traverse.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Traverse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Audi Q5 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q5 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
