Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q5 than the Dodge Durango. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Dodge Durango.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Durango, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Dodge Durango, making the Dodge Durango the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Dodge Durango.
