Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 e than in the Volvo XC90. The Audi Q5 e will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90.

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 e will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q5 e and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 e is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi Q5 e, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 e doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Audi Q5 e has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC90, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 e has a lot less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Audi Q5 e has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 e has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 e comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
