2014 Subaru Tribeca vs. 2014 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Subaru Tribeca, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Subaru Tribeca and the Audi Q5.

Convenience
With the Audi Q5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Subaru Tribeca 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 Subaru Tribeca will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi Q5.

Dimensions
The Subaru Tribeca is a little narrower than the Audi Q5, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Subaru Tribeca, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5.

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

Handling
The Subaru Tribeca 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 Subaru Tribeca for pulling heavy loads. The Subaru Tribeca has a little less horsepower than the Audi Q5.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Tribeca is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi Q5.
