To see which vehicle wins this race, check out this 2019 Audi Q5 vs. Volvo XC60 comparison provided by Audi Devon. Before long, drivers near Devon and Malvern will know which of these SUVs they're rooting for.

Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60: Technology At Every Turn

The 2019 Audi Q5 has a wide array of state-of-the-art features. The popular and high-performing MMI® infotainment system presents an available 8.3-inch touchscreen display with the responsiveness needed to quickly adjust any control. Plus, the 12.3-inch virtual cockpit contains all the gauges you need for information about your vehicle. There's also a navigation screen that makes getting to your destination easy.

The exclusive MMI® all-in-touch with handwriting-recognition technology is available in the Audi Q5. It allows you to write a command rather than using your voice or pressing a button. On top of that, the standard Audi smartphone interface allows you to access Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as well as some third-party apps.

While the Volvo XC60 also contains a touchscreen display, the vertical styling can make it slightly more difficult to navigate. On top of that, the similar 12.3-inch digital driver display doesn't have the Google Earth™ or Google Street View™ screen options that are offered in the Audi Q5.

Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60: Lively Performance

Under the sleek hood of the Audi Q5 lies a 2.0L 45 TFSI® motor that produces 273 lb-ft of torque. The Volvo XC60, on the other hand, comes with a 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder engine. It only generates 258 lb-ft of torque.

That means when it comes time to bring along some extra toys for your next adventure, the Volvo XC60 can only tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds. The Q5, however, can tow a maximum of 4,400 pounds.

Both SUVs also come with an all-wheel drive system and selectable driver modes to enhance your capability. If you choose the XC60, these features are only available options. With the Audi Q5, however, the quattro® all-wheel drive and Audi drive select come standard.

Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60: Safety for All Situations

The innovative Audi pre sense® basic comes standard in the 2019 Audi Q5. This intuitive system senses when a collision is unavoidable and will respond accordingly. By closing the side windows and panoramic sunroof, tightening the seatbelts, and preparing the braking system, the Audi Q5 can help lessen the severity of an impact.

The Audi Q5 also aims to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. With the standard Audi pre sense® city, sensors will monitor your surroundings for other vehicles and pedestrians. If a danger is detected, you'll be alerted, and emergency braking will be automatically activated.

The 2019 Volvo XC60 comes with a variety of similar driver-assistance features. However, it doesn't offer anything like Vehicle exit warning, which is available in the Audi Q5. This innovative safety technology flashes LED lights when another car or object is approaching your car door while it's opened, making it much easier to exit the vehicle safely.

Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60 Comparison: Verdict

While both these vehicles are viable options for anyone in the market for a dominant SUV, the Audi Q5 wins once again. By presenting a long list of innovative gadgets and agile handling, this vehicle is a great fit for any driver near Devon and Malvern.
