Luxury Features Abound in the 2017 X5 

bmw x5 vs audi q5One of the things we love best about the 2017 BMW X5 is not only the incredible list of standard features the vehicle offers, but also the list of available features compared to others in the class. These differences are made abundantly apparent in the 2017 Audi Q5 versus 2017 BMW X5 comparison. 

Standard Features Don't Line Up

The 2017 BMW X5 offers an extensive list of standard features that buyers expect to see from a luxury vehicle. These features include keyless start, a navigation system, heated driver seat, lumbar support for driver and front passenger, a rear parking aid, and power folding mirrors. None of these features are standard in the 2017 Audi Q5, nor are they available as optional add-ons in the base trim level. 

Major Difference in Power between X5 vs Q5 

One of the other major differences you'll see when you take some time to compare the specifications of the 2017 BMW X5 and the 2017 Audi Q5 is in the performance capabilities of the two vehicles. At their standard trim levels, they offer substantial differences. 

The 2017 BMW X5 is powered by a 3.0L intercooled turbo premium I-6 engine that produces up to 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a standard automatic transmission and has a 22.4-gallon fuel tank. The 2017 Audi Q5 comes standard with a 2.0L intercooled turbo premium I-4 engine that has a maximum power production of just 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque with a 19.8-gallon fuel tank. 

In terms of driving performance, the power alone is a huge difference. Add that to the major difference between the suspension systems of the vehicles, and you've got some serious performance competition. The X5 comes standard with a double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. The Q5 offers multi-link suspension on both the front and the rear. That means you'll feel slightly more of the road bumps than you would in the competition.
