2014 Audi Q5 vs. Its Competition

2014 Audi Q5
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Audi Q5 has more choice in drivetrains than any of its competition, but none of them are particularly lacking in their overall scores.

The Mercedes GLK has a new diesel option this year, and it's priced more reasonably than the Q5 TDI, though adding comparable features draws the prices closer.

BMW's X3 has excellent turbocharged engines and lots of interior space, while the Range Rover Evoque gets a new nine-speed automatic this year.

Volvo's XC60 has some standout safety technology and the most cargo room in the segment, while the Cadillac SRX has the CUE touchscreen interface and an excellent V-6 underhood.
