Audi Q3 vs Audi Q5 Performance

Are you ready to take on the roads ahead? Whether you're behind the wheel of the Q3 or Q5, you'll be able to do so in a powerful way. The 2018 Q3 topped out at 200 horsepower, but the  edition has been crafted to deliver a more powerful drive, with the engine making 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

The Q5 does remain the more powerful option, delivering 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it shifts smoothly and is quick off the starting line.

The quattro® all-wheel drive technology comes standard in both the Q3 and Q5. This standard technology is designed for the active driver and can sense a loss of traction in an instant. If this occurs, power will be sent to the wheels with the most grip, so even if that winter storm has struck, you won't feel stranded.

Useful Technology Designed to Make Your Life Easier

When it comes to the Audi Q3 vs Q5, both models bring plenty of tech features to the table that you'll love to use on every drive.

Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ make it easy to link up a compatible smartphone to the touchscreen, for access to text messages, playlists, and other popular apps. Best of all, you don't need to look down at your phone anymore, keeping that laser-focus on the road ahead.

The available MMI® touch response technology is changing the way drivers use their cars, too. When you're searching for a destination, this available handwriting recognition makes it easier to plug in information. Write hotel or restaurant on the touchpad and you'll see an array of options on the touchscreen.

Audi Driver-Assistance Features

The advanced systems in your Audi can raise awareness. Whether you're piloting the Q3 or the Audi Q5, you'll have access to driver-assistance features built to protect you. Audi pre sense® basic comes standard, and can track an impending collision and prepare the car for impact. Side windows will be closed, and front seat belts will pretension to keep you safe.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which is an available feature in both the Q3 and Q5, comes in handy when you're backing out of a spot. Radar is used to warn you of an approaching vehicle. You'll be alerted with an on-screen notification and an audible alert, as well.
