Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo XC60. The Audi Q5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.
