Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Hyundai Kona EV. The Audi Q5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona EV, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

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 Hyundai Kona EV. 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 Hyundai Kona EV.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q5 is much wider than the Hyundai Kona EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi Q5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Kona EV.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Kona EV, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q5 has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the Hyundai Kona EV. The Audi Q5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi Q5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona EV.
