Q5 Competitive Comparison

When it comes to luxury compact/crossover SUVs, the competition is pretty stiff, and there's no question that the 2019 Audi Q5 has a lot of the performance and features drivers are looking for. Even the base model features a 272-horsepower 4 cylinder and a roomy, well-appointed cabin with room for five people, and is available with Audi's exclusive Quattro(r) all-wheel-drive system. You'll also see an exhaustive list of standard features, with things like stability control, blind spot warning, dusk sensing package, pre-collision safety system, auto-dimming rear view mirror, a comprehensive infotainment system and much more. Add in Audi engineering and spirited performance and handling and it adds up to quite an impressive package. But how does the Q5 stack up next to the competition?
