2018 Audi Q5 vs. 2018 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Volvo XC90. The Audi Q5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90.

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 XC90, 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). Clearly, the Audi Q5 is a better financial choice over the Volvo XC90, when considering 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 Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi Q5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volvo XC90, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi Q5. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 has a lot less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
