Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q5 as you will with the Honda Pilot, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Audi Q5 is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi Q5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Pilot.
