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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q5 and the Chevrolet Traverse are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.
