2017 Nissan Murano vs. 2018 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Murano offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Audi Q5. The Audi Q5 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Murano 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 Nissan Murano 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 Nissan Murano and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan Murano is a little wider than the Audi Q5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Murano, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Murano doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi Q5.

Handling
The Nissan Murano has the same turning radius as the Audi Q5, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Murano is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi Q5.
