Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi SQ5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Sequoia. 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 Toyota Sequoia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi SQ5 as you will with the Toyota Sequoia, 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 SQ5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Sequoia. 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 Toyota Sequoia.

Dimensions
Since the Audi SQ5 is much slimmer than the Toyota Sequoia, 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 Toyota Sequoia.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi SQ5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Sequoia.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Sequoia is clearly the choice over the Audi SQ5 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi SQ5 has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Sequoia.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Audi SQ5 seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Sequoia. The Audi SQ5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Sequoia.

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