Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi SQ5 than in the BMW X4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi SQ5 and the BMW X4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi SQ5 as you will with the BMW X4, 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 SQ5 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi SQ5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the BMW X4.

Dimensions
The Audi SQ5 is a little narrower than the BMW X4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Audi SQ5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X4.

Handling
The Audi SQ5 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi SQ5 greatly out-muscles the BMW X4.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi SQ5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the BMW X4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi SQ5 and the BMW X4. The Audi SQ5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X4.

Warranty
The Audi SQ5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X4.
