Q5 vs XC60: Technology

Audi Q5 TechnologyStaying connected in the Q5 and XC60 is easier than ever, with both vehicles providing tons of features at your fingertips. The MMI® (Audi) and Sensus Connect (Volvo) infotainment systems both feature standard Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ connectivity features for smartphone integration.

You'll find voice controls available in both vehicles, as well as a touchscreen in the Volvo and a touchpad in the Audi SUV. However, the Audi system earns points for ease of use, as test drivers have found its use of physical knobs and buttons to be more intuitive than the Volvo's almost-fully touchscreen controls.

Another Audi Q5 advantage? Only it offers handwriting-recognition technology, letting you "write" your entry on the touchpad rather than taking the time to type in letters and numbers. It'll surely save you time on your daily drives!

All-Star Performance Specs

The standard powertrains in the Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60 look incredibly similar: Both are turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engines that generate roughly 250 horsepower. With that kind of star power under the hood, you'll have plenty of pep for a thrilling drive.

All-wheel drive (AWD) is available in the Volvo XC60, so you can get more grip on the roads. However, the Audi Q5 goes above and beyond by making quattro® AWD standard in every trim level. This system sends power to the wheels with the most grip, ensuring you always have maximum traction.

Test drivers find these vehicles incredibly smooth to drive, as both offer suspensions that expertly absorb dips and bumps in the pavement. Plus, with selectable drive modes in both, you can easily customize your drive to your liking!

Exterior Flair & Function

Audi Q5The Q5 and XC60 are incredibly practical vehicles, and that's evident even from the outside. With available hands-free power liftgates, you can conveniently load up cargo when your hands are full-just gently kick your foot under the rear bumper, and the liftgate will rise automatically.

The Q5 and XC60 bring their own sense of styles in terms of exterior designs, but there's no doubt that the Audi SUV emerges looking more ferocious. The larger hexagonal Singleframe® grille plays a major role in this: Its chrome horizontal bars look fierce and are reflected and extended by horizontal signature lighting in the headlamps.
