The XC60 VS. The Q5



You have places to see in the Camden, NJ region.  How you get to your destinations matters.  If you plan to choose a vehicle with dynamic power and handling, we encourage you to learn more about our new Volvo XC60 model range.  When you compare the Volvo XC60 AWD base model with the Audi Q5 AWD base model, you will notice that the vehicles offer many similarities.  You’ll get a 4-cylinder, turbocharged engine in either vehicle.  The Volvo XC60 gets higher horsepower than its Audi counterpart, boasting 250 horsepower to the Q5’s 248 horsepower.  Further, the Volvo XC60 gives you a tighter turning diameter than the Audi Q5, coming in at 37.4 feet to the Audi’s larger 38.4 feet turning diameter.  This means you can take tighter turns with the Volvo, which is important when navigating through Philadelphia parking lots, turning in or backing out of a driveway, reversing to hook your vehicle up to a small trailer, and other uses.

At the base level, both luxury SUVs come fitted with an automatic transmission with a manual mode as standard equipment.  However, the Audi Q5 features a 7-speed automatic while the Volvo XC60 features an 8-speed automatic transmission.  If you prioritize fuel efficiency, you can choose either model for your Philadelphia adventures.  The XC60 and Q5 get near-identical EPA fuel economy ratings, and while the Audi gets slightly better fuel economy in the city, the combined fuel economy of both models remains identical.


The new Volvo XC60 and the new Audi Q5 both offer seating for up to five travelers.  If you prioritize passenger comfort, then we recommend that you consider the new XC60.  The Volvo SUV offers more legroom for passengers in the front and back seats than the Audi SUV.  The Volvo XC60 offers 41.5 inches of legroom for those seated in the front and 38 inches of legroom for those seated in the rear.  In comparison, the Audi Q5 only offers 41 inches of front legroom and 37.8 inches of legroom for rear seat passengers.  Will you travel with groceries or other items that could benefit from a cargo shade?  If so, then you’ll appreciate the interior cargo shade that comes standard with the XC60.  This feature is optional for the Audi Q5.  Additionally, the Volvo features a panoramic sunroof that allows you to bring in more sunlight and fresh air to your vehicle.  This feature comes as an upgrade for the Audi SUV.


The 2019 Volvo XC60 provides Pennsauken Township drivers with a broad range of standard safety features.  Starting at the XC60 T5 AWD Momentum base trim, you’ll have access to Active Bending Lights, a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Cross Traffic Alert system with Automatic Braking, a Lane Keeping Aid, Oncoming Lane Mitigation system, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System.  The 2019 Audi Q5, in comparison, offers a tire-pressure monitoring system, rear view camera, and Audi pre sense® basic at the Q5 Premium trim level.  Of course, with both luxury SUVs, you can access additional standard and optional safety technologies to improve your safety in the Sicklerville community.
