Compare the Volvo XC60 vs. the Audi Q5

  • The Volvo XC60 Has More Standard Safety Features: Both the XC60 and the Audi Q5 get terrific crash test ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but the new XC60 has a few safety features that aren't available on the Q5, including run-off road mitigation. People in the Akron area will like that this feature uses cameras to detect if the XC60 is about to leave the road unintentionally and can then use steering and, if necessary, brake support to guide it back onto the right path. The Audi Q5 doesn't offer run-off road mitigation.

  • The Volvo XC60 Gets Better Fuel Economy: Both the XC60 and Audi Q5 get around 24 mpg with their base engines. However, the Volvo XC60 has an available 400-horsepower plug-in hybrid engine that has 17 miles of all-electric range and earns 58 mpg-equivalent combined. The new Q5 doesn't offer a hybrid motor.
  • The Volvo XC60 Can Tow More: Drivers in the Canton area who want an SUV to take camping will appreciate that the XC60 can tow up to 5,291 pounds - enough to tow a boat or camper. The Q5's towing capacity is only 4,400 pounds.

    The new Volvo XC60 comes standard with a panoramic sunroof that makes it light and airy inside. The new Audi Q5 offers an optional sunroof, but you have to pay more for a higher trim to have it.
