2015 Volvo XC60 vs. 2015 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Volvo XC60, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Audi Q5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi Q5, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volvo XC60 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi Q5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Volvo XC60 and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo XC60 is about the same width as the Audi Q5. When looking at overall length, the Volvo XC60 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi Q5.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has the same turning radius as the Audi Q5, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC60 has a little less horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volvo XC60 and the Audi Q5. The Volvo XC60 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q5.

Warranty
The Volvo XC60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q5.
