Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi SQ5 than the Cadillac XT6. The Audi SQ5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT6.

Convenience
With the Cadillac XT6, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi SQ5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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).
