2018 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2018 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Audi Q5. The Nissan Pathfinder will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Pathfinder 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Pathfinder 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. Both the Nissan Pathfinder and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Pathfinder 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 Nissan Pathfinder, 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 Pathfinder doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi Q5.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Pathfinder has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
The Nissan Pathfinder offers greater seating capacity than the Audi Q5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Nissan Pathfinder, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi Q5.

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