2016 Audi Q5 vs. 2015 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Volkswagen Touareg requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi Q5, 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 Volkswagen Touareg. 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 Volkswagen Touareg have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen Touareg.

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