The Audi Q5 vs the BMW X3

As far as style and performance is concerned, the Audi Q5 has it down to a science. This SUV offers a lower asking price than the BMW X3, even though it offers leather seating standard where the X3 doesn't. The Audi Q5 also provides a standard engine delivering 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, while the BMW X3 has a standard 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine with 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Along with these features, you'll also find all-wheel drive standard in the Q5, but as an expensive add-on with the X3.

Lexus RX

The Audi Q5 vs the Lexus RX

In the Audi Q5, you'll find standard all-wheel drive at a price that is lower than the Lexus RX, which also offers all-wheel drive at an additional cost. The base models are drastically different, with the Q5 priced lower than the Lexus RX, despite offering Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, plus exclusive Audi technology. These include Audi pre sense basic and Audi pre sense city, Audi virtual cockpit, and Audi connect CARE, which means the Lexus RX doesn't offer these features.

Volvo XC60

The Audi Q5 vs the Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 offers features like a 12.3-inch driver information display, but it's a costlier model than the Audi Q5 because it doesn't offer Audi connect CARE, Audi pre sense basic, and Audi pre sense city, while the Q5 offers them standard. The Q5 also stands out above the XC60 because it offers Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the Volvo model can't offer these Audi-exclusive features.

Mercedes-Benz GLC

The Audi Q5 vs the Mercedes-Benz GLC

Two names known for their style, yet only one can go home with you today. The Audi Q5 stands out because it offers premium leather seats standard, all-wheel drive, and 252 horsepower. The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers 241 horsepower standard and offers only Nappa leather seats while charging extra for all-wheel drive. In addition, you won't get Audi-exclusive features like Audi pre sense city in the Mercedes-Benz GLC, nor will you get Blind Spot Assist, Voice-Activated Navigation, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto without adding on an expensive package to the already elevated starting price.
