This engine can also achieve an EPA-estimated 19 city and 27 highway MPG.* With this commendable combination of power, performance, and fuel efficiency, each drive will feel all the more exhilarating.

Now, let's move on to the Q5. This SUV features a similar standard 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine. However, the Q5's version does include some heightened specifications, including 248 horsepower and up to 273 lb-ft of torque. It also achieves an EPA-estimated 22 city and 28 highway MPG.*

Q3 vs Q5: Interior Dimensions & Comfort

Drivers who purchase a luxury vehicle expect the interior to be, well, luxurious. Both the Audi Q3 and the Audi Q5 do not disappoint, offering a spacious and relaxing driving experience.

In terms of interior dimensions, these two SUVs offer almost identical amounts of space. In the Q3, you'll find 39.6 inches of front headroom and 37.6 inches of rear headroom.

Q3 vs Q5: Infotainment & Technology
