2014 Toyota Venza vs. 2014 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Venza, 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). Clearly, the Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi Q5.

Dimensions
The Toyota Venza is about the same width as the Audi Q5. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Venza, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Venza has much lower torque than the Audi Q5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Venza has a lot 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 Toyota Venza and the Audi Q5. The Toyota Venza has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q5.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Venza is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi Q5.
