Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L than in the Audi Q5, 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 Audi Q5 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi Q5, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

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

Warranty
