2018 Audi Q5 vs. 2017 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q5 than the Lincoln MKX. The Audi Q5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The Audi Q5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln MKX.

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

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

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