After looking at the comparisons, feel free to browse our new Land Rover Discovery inventory.

Luxury SUV Comparison: Land Rover Discovery vs. Audi Q5 Performance

If you’re looking at the SUV comparison of the Range Rover Discovery vs Audi Q5, both offer a couple of engine options for you to decide which one best suits your needs around Mount Laurel. Let’s take a closer look at the available engine option and specs:

  • Land Rover Discovery
    • Standard 3.0L supercharged V6 engine producing 332 lb-ft of torque and 340 hp.
    • Available 3.0L turbo diesel engine producing 443 lb-ft of torque and 254 hp.
    • Maximum towing capacity of 8,201 pounds.
  • Audi Q5
    • Standard 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder engine producing 273 lb-ft of torque and 261 hp.
    • Available 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder hybrid engine producing 369 lb-ft of torque and 362 hp.
    • Maximum towing capacity of 4,400 pounds.

While the Range Rover Discovery vs. Audi Q5 both offer powerful powertrains, we feel the Discovery takes the advantage because it has higher torque figures. The Land Rover Discovery has a higher maximum towing capacity which is almost double that of the Audi Q5 and the standard Discovery engine also provides a bit more power than the standard Q5 engine. Apply for financing today and experience the power in the new Land Rover Discovery.

Luxury SUV Comparison: Land Rover Discovery vs. Audi Q5 Interior Dimensions

The Land Rover vs. Audi interior dimensions both offer Hopewell drivers the ability to seat 5 passengers comfortably. However, the SUV comparison stops there because the Discovery has the option to seat up to 7 passengers which isn’t available in the Q5. Let’s explore some of the interior dimensions and specifications of the Land Rover vs. Audi:

Land Rover Discovery:

  • Seating capacity: 5-7 passengers
  • Front/Rear headroom (standard roof/panoramic roof): 39.4 inches/39.0 inches & 40.0 inches/39.0 inches
  • Front/Rear legroom: 39.1 inches/37.6 inches
  • Maximum volume behind 2nd row: 43.5 cubic feet

Audi Q5:

  • Seating capacity: 5 passengers
  • Front/Rear headroom (with/without sunroof): 38.1 inches/37.7 inches & 39.6 inches/39.3 inches
  • Front/Rear legroom: 40.9 inches/38.0 inches
  • Maximum volume behind 2nd row: 25.8 cubic feet

While these SUV comparisons are close, we think the Land Rover Discovery takes the cake with the ability to seat up to 7 passengers, more headroom in each configuration, and almost double the maximum volume behind the 2nd row.
