2015 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKX than in the Audi Q5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Lincoln MKX, 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 Lincoln MKX. 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 Lincoln MKX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is a little narrower than the Lincoln MKX, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKX, 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 Lincoln MKX.

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

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

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

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKX.
