2015 Nissan Murano vs. 2015 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Murano than in the Audi Q5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Nissan Murano and the Audi Q5.

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. In this case, the Nissan Murano will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi Q5.

Dimensions
The Nissan Murano is about the same width as the Audi Q5. If you go with the Nissan Murano, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with 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 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 Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Murano has a little less 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.
