The 2019 Audi Q3 and Audi Q5 are two popular SUV models for buyers throughout Devon and Malvern.

Continue reading this Audi Q3 vs. Q5 comparison from the team at Audi Devon before scheduling a test drive of your favorite model.


Variations in Power & Performance

The major difference between the Audi Q3 and Q5 lies under their hoods. The Audi Q3 is a compact luxury SUV, so it's smaller than its larger counterpart (more on that below). However, this vehicle also has a smaller, more fuel-efficient engine, which is great for commuting to the city.

The Audi Q3 is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine that produces up to 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Its nimble, sporty engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which controls its standard quattro® all-wheel drive.

The Audi Q5 comes standard with a 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® 4-cylinder engine that can produce up to 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with a 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission, which helps it achieve 0-60 MPH acceleration in a remarkable 5.9 seconds.

Want to quickly customize your driving experience to match the outside conditions? Each model offers Audi drive select, allowing you to easily toggle between seven distinct drive modes to ensure a confident and level ride, no matter what the day has in store.

Of course, there is no better option here. Ultimately, whether you choose the Q3 or the Q5 really depends on your individual driving style and needs.

Interior Design & Technology

While it's clear that there's some slight variation in terms of total interior space, both SUVs manage to provide comfortable seating for up to five passengers. Their functional and well-appointed dashboard and wide center consoles both offer easy navigation, ensuring that you can keep both your hands and eyes focused on the road ahead.

Need a few suggestions on the best seafood restaurant when traveling to a new city? Perhaps you'd like turn-by-turn directions to your next appointment across town? On the other hand, maybe you're looking to quickly answer a few messages before pulling into the driveway.
