2017 Audi Q5 vs. 2016 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
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKX, making it more convenient to drive.

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. 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 its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKX.

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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKX.

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