A five-passenger, four-door SUV with two comfortable rows of seating, the Q5 is currently in its second generation. It's stylish, powerful, and eye-catching, and it's available now at our South Canning Boulevard dealership in Fall River.

While the Q5 has a lot to offer drivers throughout the region, we know it's not the only small, luxury SUV that's probably competing for your attention. To help you make the right decision, we've done a little homework. Read on to see the research we've compiled that shows how the Audi Q5 comes out ahead in several key areas in head-to-head competition against two similarly sized luxury SUVs, the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class SUV.

The Audi Q5 vs. the BMW X3

  • Fuel capacity and range. While the Audi Q5 averages around 518 miles on the highway per fill up, you can expect just around 499 miles on the highway for the BMW SUV. This discrepancy comes from the fuel-efficient, Audi-engineered powertrain system, and also from the Q5 model's gas tank, which holds around 18.5 gallons, compared to the X5 model's 17 gallons.
  • Passenger comfort. Crafted with topnotch materials and a keen attention to detail, it's hard to compete with the comfort of an Audi SUV. With the Audi Q5, you get the qualities inherent in the Audi name, as well as the added bonus of greater amounts of headroom, legroom, and elbow room, especially when compared side by side with the BMW X3.
  • Standard comfort features. Audi knows that its drivers want high-end amenities and the latest comfort features, and the Q5 delivers. Every trim in this collection gets standard creature comforts that include leather upholstery, heated seats, and more. However, these amenities are not standard with the X3, but instead are listed as options.

The Audi Q5 vs. the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class SUV

  • Cargo space. Whether you're hitting the links at the Fall River Country Club, or catching the waves at Horseneck Beach, when you have cargo or gear to tote with you, the Audi Q5 can help you haul more of what you need. The cargo space in the Q5 holds 25.8 cubic feet with the backseats in place, compared to 19.4 cubic feet in the rear cargo hold of the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class SUV.
  • Passenger space. From the front to the backseat, the Audi Q5 offers more room to stretch out for you, and your passengers, than the GLC-Class model. This includes more headroom, legroom, elbow room and shoulder room, in the front and rear seats.
  • Standard luxury amenities. Expect more of the high-end features you want with the Audi Q5. Every model in the Q5 collection gets standard leather upholstery, standard four-zone auto climate control, and more. But the GLC-Class SUV doesn't get these amenities standard. Additionally, the Q5 has a broader range of optional add-ons available across the lineup than the Mercedes-Benz does, allowing for more personalization and customization opportunities.
