2014 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Subaru Tribeca Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Subaru Tribeca. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Subaru Tribeca.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca.

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 Subaru Tribeca, 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 Subaru Tribeca.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is a little wider than the Subaru Tribeca, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Subaru Tribeca, 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 Subaru Tribeca.

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

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Subaru Tribeca, making the Subaru Tribeca the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Tribeca.

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