In this comparison from our team at Audi Grapevine, two of the most popular SUVs on the market go head to head in all the ways Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Irving drivers care about. Read on to see which SUV rises to the top!

Q5 vs Tiguan: Performance & Capability

The 2020 Audi Q5 and the 2020 VW Tiguan are markedly sporty with peppy turbocharged powertrains, available selectable sport modes, and all-wheel drive capability.

However, the Q5 pulls ahead in every way starting with its standard quattro® all-wheel drive system with ultra® technology. With the Tiguan, you'll have to upgrade from the base trim for all-wheel capability.

Secondly, the Q5 dominates in the realm of power. Its standard 45 TFSI® engine pumps out 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power, you'll be able to tow up to 4,400 pounds of trailer weight, more than twice the maximum towing capacity of the Tiguan.

Third and lastly, the Q5 offers an available plug-in hybrid powertrain, while the Tiguan does not. Even with this hybrid powertrain, you'll have more than 300 horsepower and lb-ft of torque to work with.

Audi Q5 Interior & Audi Q5 Dimensions

Interior space and comfort are at the top of any SUV shopper's list of priorities. The Audi Q5 and the VW Tiguan both deliver with five spacious seats. However, you'll get slightly more wiggle room in the front seats of the Q5 with 41 inches of legroom and 41.7 inches of front headroom.

In terms of comfort and style, there's no doubt which model pulls ahead. As a luxury model, the Audi Q5 sports an array of high-end interior options, including standard leather upholstery with available Alcantara leather and an available 3-zone automatic climate control system.

Unfortunately, the Volkswagen Tiguan doesn't offer any of these features. The best you'll get in the Tiguan is V-Tex leatherette, not real leather.

Audi Q5 vs VW Tiguan: Technology Features

Convenience is important when you have to juggle your daily commute, running errands, and conforming to the ever-changing schedule of your kids. The Q5 and the Tiguan offer several handy features to help you keep your cool, including an available hands-free power tailgate. Pack the cargo area in a matter of seconds. Additionally, both models offer available wireless device charging.

The Audi Q5 takes convenience to the next level with several extra features, including the available Audi virtual cockpit. This fully digital 12.3-inch display lives behind the steering wheel and provides all kinds of information to your line of sight, like navigation, audio and phone updates, and Google Earth™ access. You won't get such a feature in the VW Tiguan.
