2014 Audi Q5 hybrid vs. 2015 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 hybrid offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW X5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 hybrid and the BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q5 hybrid, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q5 hybrid will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X5.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 hybrid is a little narrower than the BMW X5, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi Q5 hybrid is slightly shorter than the BMW X5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Audi Q5 hybrid has much lower torque than the BMW X5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi Q5 hybrid has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 hybrid for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 hybrid has a little less horsepower than the BMW X5.

Utility
The Audi Q5 hybrid has less seating than the BMW X5, making the BMW X5 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 hybrid has less cargo space than the BMW X5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X5.
