Learn How the Audi Q5 SUV Measures up Against Local Rivals

You're fortunate in that you have plenty of options available when you're shopping for your next premium SUV. However, finding the available free time to research all those options is a different matter completely. While all are worthy of consideration, you want to be sure that you're choosing the ideal SUV for your needs. Naturally, we're fond of our Audi Q5 and all that it has to offer Danbury drivers. But how does it fare when compared to competing models such as the BMW X3, Lexus RX, Volvo XC60, and Mercedes-Benz GLC? Read on and find out.


  • The Audi Q5 features a standard 2.0-liter inline-four engine that makes 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, with the famed and trusted Audi Quattro® all-wheel drive included as a standard feature.
  • The BMW X3 also comes with a 2.0-liter inline-four engine that produces the same horsepower as the Q5. However, the X3 only generates 258 pound-feet of torque, and comes with standard rear-wheel drive.
  • The Lexus RX is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that manufactures 295 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque, besting the Q5 in one metric but not the other. This SUV comes with standard front-wheel drive.
  • The Volvo XC60 includes a 2.0-liter inline-four engine, which creates 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Again, front-wheel drive is standard.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that generates 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, with rear-wheel drive the standard setup.

Interior Design & Comfort

  • Audi has built interior of the Audi Q5 with an exacting attention to detail, with standard leather seating, high-quality stitching, and top materials used on the interior panels. With the rear seats folded down, you have 60.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • The BMW X3 features leatherette upholstery, with high-quality materials are used elsewhere in the cabin. With the rear seats lowered, you get nearly 63 cubic feet of storage.
  • The Lexus RX uses NuLuxe synthetic leather upholstery and soft-touch materials throughout. With the rear seats down, you get 56.3 cubic feet of cargo room.
  • The Volvo XC60 also features synthetic leather seating, and offers a roomy 63.3 cubic feet of space once the rear seats are folded.
  • Leatherette upholstery comes standard with the Mercedes-Benz GLC, which offers 56.5 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are lowered.


  • The Audi Q5 features an infotainment system that commands Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, Bluetooth® streaming, HD Radio, and a 10-speaker sound system through a 7-inch infotainment screen.
  • The BMW X3 is equipped with an iDrive infotainment system that includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®, and a 12-speaker audio system. However, the convenience of Apple CarPlay™ is only available as an added expense.
  • The Lexus RX has a standard infotainment system with Bluetooth®, Siri Eyes Free, satellite radio, HD Radio, a nine-speaker stereo, and an 8-inch display. Sadly, neither Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are available for the RX.
  • The Sensus Connect infotainment system found in the Volvo XC60 offers a 9-inch touchscreen display, a 10-speaker sound system, and commands Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLC is outfitted with a standard infotainment system with a 7-inch display, HD Radio, and Bluetooth® audio streaming. Smartphone integration comes at an added cost, though.
