2016 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2016 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Audi Q5, 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 Chevrolet Traverse is a better financial choice over the Audi Q5, 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 Chevrolet Traverse and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Audi Q5, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Traverse is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi Q5.
