2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2016 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche Macan, 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). The Porsche Macan will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi Q5, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Porsche Macan is much higher than that for the Audi Q5.

Dimensions
The Porsche Macan 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. When looking at overall length, the Porsche Macan takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi Q5.

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

Handling
The Porsche Macan 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 Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Porsche Macan 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 Porsche Macan and the Audi Q5. The Porsche Macan has less cargo space than the Audi Q5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Porsche Macan comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q5.
