2016 Audi Q5 vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Audi Q5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia, 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 GMC Acadia. 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 GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. 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 GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Acadia, 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 GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

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

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