Comparison Review

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

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. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership 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.

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

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Honda Pilot, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Honda Pilot, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi Q5. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Audi Q5 seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Pilot. The Audi Q5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda Pilot.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q5 than that of the Honda Pilot.
