2015 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Murano, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Murano will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Nissan Murano, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Murano, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Nissan Murano. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Nissan Murano. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano.
