Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q5 than the Nissan Murano. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Nissan Murano.

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

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). The Audi Q5 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Murano. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Murano.

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