2015 Audi SQ5 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi SQ5 than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi SQ5.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Tahoe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi SQ5, 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 SQ5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Tahoe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi SQ5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Dimensions
Since the Audi SQ5 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Tahoe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi SQ5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi SQ5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Handling
The Audi SQ5 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Tahoe, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the Audi SQ5 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Audi SQ5 and the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Audi SQ5 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Audi SQ5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi SQ5 than that of the Chevrolet Tahoe.
