2014 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza.

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Venza, 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). The Audi Q5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Venza, 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. Both the Audi Q5 and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Toyota Venza. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Toyota Venza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

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

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