2018 Volvo XC60 vs. 2018 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Volvo XC60 than the Audi Q5. The Audi Q5 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC60 as you will with the Audi Q5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Volvo XC60 is somewhat more expensive 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 Volvo XC60 and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

The Volvo XC60 is about the same width as the Audi Q5. When looking at overall length, the Volvo XC60 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi Q5.

With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi Q5.

The Volvo XC60 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Volvo XC60 and the Audi Q5.
