2020 Volvo XC60 vs.
2020 Audi Q5 - Volvo of Edinburg - Edinburg, TX

Are you in the market for a high-performance, well-appointed, elegantly styled luxury SUV? Chances are good that you have added the 2020 Volvo XC60 and the 2020 Audi A5 to the top of your list. But, how do you choose between the two? When you objectively study the models side by side, the 2020 Volvo XC60 is the superior choice. Here's why:


The standard engine powering the 2020 Volvo XC60 is a 2.0-liter direct injected four-cylinder turbocharged engine that cranks out 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for two other engine options, one delivering 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and one (a plug-in hybrid) generating combined ratings of 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 Q5 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that only manages 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, though you can opt for a plug-in hybrid option (similar to the Volvo XC60's) that makes 349 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.


Both the new Audi A5 and the Volvo XC60 offer impressive safety technologies, but the 2020 XC60, as a Volvo, has the superior collection of safety features. Included among them are Run Off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, Collision Mitigation with Active Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Keep Assist, and Driver Drowsiness Monitoring.

Interior Space

While you can seat five passengers in both the 2020 XC60 and the 2020 Q5, the Volvo XC90 offers more cargo space. You get up to 53.1 cubic feet in the Audi Q5 compared to a whopping 63.3 cubic feet in the Volvo XC60.


Despite being the all-around better option, the 2020 Volvo XC60 is offered more affordably than the 2020 Audi Q5. In fact, you can get the base mode of the Volvo XC60 for approximately $3,000 less than the base mode of the Audi A5.*
