2014 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Volvo XC60. The Audi Q5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Volvo XC60, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. 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 Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC60.

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 Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, 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 Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Volvo XC60. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
