Comparison Review

Comfort
The Land Rover Discovery offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Audi SQ5, with comparable head- and legroom. The Audi SQ5 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery.

Convenience
The Land Rover Discovery 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 Land Rover Discovery is somewhat more expensive than the Audi SQ5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Land Rover Discovery is much higher than that for the Audi SQ5.

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

Handling
The Land Rover Discovery has a larger turning radius than the Audi SQ5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
