2014 BMW X6 vs. 2014 Audi Q5 hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 hybrid than in the BMW X6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Audi Q5 hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X6 as you will with the Audi Q5 hybrid, 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 BMW X6 is somewhat more expensive than the Audi Q5 hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X6 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Audi Q5 hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X6 is much wider than the Audi Q5 hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X6, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5 hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X6 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Audi Q5 hybrid.

Handling
The BMW X6 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Audi Q5 hybrid, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X6 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 hybrid for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X6 greatly out-muscles the Audi Q5 hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X6 and the Audi Q5 hybrid. The BMW X6 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q5 hybrid.
