2016 Audi Q5 vs. 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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