Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable 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 Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Volvo XC60, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Volvo XC60. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
