Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Enclave than in the Audi SQ5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi SQ5 and the Buick Enclave.

Convenience
The Buick Enclave requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi SQ5, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Buick Enclave. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the Audi SQ5 is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi SQ5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
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 Buick Enclave.

Handling
The Audi SQ5 has the same turning radius as the Buick Enclave, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi SQ5 is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Audi SQ5 has a little more horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
The Audi SQ5 has less seating than the Buick Enclave, making the Buick Enclave the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi SQ5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi SQ5 than that of the Buick Enclave.
