Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen ID.4. The Volkswagen ID.4 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q5.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

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 Volkswagen ID.4, 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. In this case, the Audi Q5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q5, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen ID.4 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen ID.4. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Volkswagen ID.4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen ID.4.
