2017 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Audi Q5, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Traverse, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi Q5. 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 Chevrolet Traverse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi Q5.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Audi Q5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi Q5.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Audi Q5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi Q5.

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