2017 Volkswagen Touareg vs 2017 Audi Q5

When comparing luxury SUVs, you would be foolish to disregard the Touareg. You can see exactly what we mean with our 2017 Volkswagen Touareg vs 2017 Audi Q5 comparison. See how these two very different German auto manufacturers compare when it comes to these luxurious models.

Looking at the two models side-by-side, we can already see some key design differences. For one, the Touareg uses subtle lines that detail a classic approach to design and style. From the grille to the roofline, everything is classy and 100% Volkswagen. The Audi Q5 on the other hand has a big intrusive front grille that looks out of place with the subdued headlights and exterior silhouette.

How does the 2017 Touareg compare to the competition?

Though the Q5 makes a big show of having standard all-wheel drive across all trim levels, the Touareg also features all-wheel drive across its entire lineup, and it has more power to back it up. For 2017, the Touareg has one engine option, and it’s a powerful V-6 that spits out 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The Audi has two engine options. The first of which can only produce 220 horsepower, and the higher engine option still falls short with 272 horsepower.

What about luxury? Well for starters, the Touareg has more comfort options when it comes to the front row seats. With 10-way adjustability, you can find your perfect comfort zone. On top of that, the Touareg also features more interior room for passengers and 64 cubic-feet of cargo room, which is nearly 7 cubic-feet more than the Q5.

If you want to roll with style, then the Touareg with its 21” wheels definitely provides, but the Touareg has even more to offer than that. Are you looking for something that can haul your toys while transporting your family? Then you may be interested to learn that the 2017 Touareg can tow up to 7,716 pounds when properly equipped. This is far more than the Audi Q5, which can only handle 4,400 pounds.
