Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q5 than the Dodge Durango. The Audi Q5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q5, 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). Whether you pick the Audi Q5 or the Dodge Durango, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Dodge Durango.

The Audi Q5 is a little narrower than the Dodge Durango, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Audi Q5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Durango.

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

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Dodge Durango, making the Dodge Durango the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Dodge Durango.
