To find the answer and discover the ultimate vehicle for traveling throughout Devon, Malvern, and Phoenixville, continue reading the following Audi Q5 vs. the competition comparison.


Audi Q5 vs the Competition: Power & Performance

The Audi brand is synonymous with engine power, and the 2020 Audi Q5 is no exception.

Looking under the hood, you'll notice a standard 2.0L engine, capable of putting out 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Not to mention, it's all engineered with the standard and legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system. Let's see how this engine stacks up against its competitors-more specifically, the BMW X3, Lexus RX 350, and the Volvo XC60.

Starting with BMW, you'll find this SUV comes with a similar 2.0L engine and 248 horsepower as the Q5; however, it offers significantly less torque at only 258 lb-ft. As for the Lexus RX 350 and Volvo XC60, they're not looking any better, either, providing 268 and 258 lb-ft of torque, respectively.


Audi Q5 vs the Competition: Interior Space & Comfort

While all SUVs are hailed for their larger amounts of space, not every SUV is as spacious as the Audi Q5.

Let's explore this vehicle's interior dimensions. The Audi Q5 gives those in the front row 41 inches of legroom, whereas the BMW X3 only provides 40.3 inches of front legroom. The Q5 offers slightly more shoulder room, too, with 57.7 inches in the front and 56.5 inches in the back. The X3 measures in at 57.6 inches of front shoulder room and 56 inches in the rear.

Interior space is pretty nice on its own, but when paired with luxurious seating, it's even better. Luckily, the Audi Q5 comes standard with heated, 8-way power front seats and 4-way power-lumbar support for the driver. The Lexus RX 350 and the Volvo XC90 also offer heated front seats; however, you'll have to purchase an additional upgrade to enjoy them.


Audi Q5 vs the Competition: Innovative Technology

In today's digital age, technology is all around us. Now, thanks to the innovative systems from the folks at Audi, it's also inside your SUV.

It starts with Audi's smartphone interface, standard with both Apple CarPlay® and Google™ Android Auto™ integration. This is a step up from the BMW X3, which only offers Apple CarPlay®. Both of these smartphone connectivity options allow drivers to seamlessly access their favorite applications, jam along to their favorite tunes, and much more.

Speaking of tunes, the Q5 offers an available Bang & Olufsen® sound system with 3D sound, 19 speakers, a 16-channel amplifier, and 755 watts of power. Lexus's highest available sound system only comes with 15 speakers, and BMW's highest audio offering provides an even lower number of speakers with its 12-speaker system.
