Comparing Luxury in the Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60

Luxurious genuine leather upholstery is standard in both these upscale SUVs, each of which seats five. The front seats are power adjustable, so it's easy to find a comfortable position, and there's plenty of room for rear-seat passengers to stretch out and get comfortable for a long road trip. The Q5 comes with sliding rear seats, so you can increase legroom as needed.

Plenty of additional features are available for you to add for an extra dose of luxury. In either SUV, you can get heated seats, driver's seat memory settings, and a heated steering wheel. The Audi also offers available front sport seats with extra bolstering for spirited driving.


The Q5 has 26.8 ft3 of cargo space in the trunk, while the XC60 has just 22.4 ft3 of cargo capacity. The rear seats of either vehicle fold flat to make room for additional cargo, and each also comes with a standard power liftgate, or the option for an available hands-free liftgate to make loading up cargo easy.
