Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Audi Q5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5.
