Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Infiniti QX56 than in the Audi Q5 hybrid. The Audi Q5 hybrid offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Infiniti QX56, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Infiniti QX56 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).

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Infiniti QX56 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Audi Q5 hybrid.

Handling

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Infiniti QX56 more than the Audi Q5 hybrid, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Infiniti QX56, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi Q5 hybrid.
