      For whatever reason this is the first comparison video of yours that I have seen and it was fantastic guys. I look forward to seeing many more. And because your videos are so thoughtful and detailed I would absolutely love to hear your opinions on driving dynamics. Please keep up the good work.

      Thank you so much! We can't emphasize enough just how much we appreciate people like you, because you guys are the reason why we get to do something we love doing! And hopefully as we expand to more and more dealers, we'll start to make new types of videos (including test drives)!! 😀

      I’m a VAG owner (only) since the mid 1970’s (new one every 2/3yrs). VAG quality is not what it used to be. Still good, but others have caught up. I’ve looked at both these to buy next. One thing you miss is that you can’t (at the moment) get a PHEV drivetrain for the Q5 - a huge plus for my next purchase.

      Volvo's problem is primarily it's big depreciation even after the first year alone. It's a boon however to used car buyers who desires a Swedish vehicle engineered and built specially for cold climate.

      Volvo has obviously come a long ways. If it is that close, my choice is Audi. Am I the only one who thinks "soccer Mom" when I see a Volvo?

      What it comes down to is whether you prioritize sportiness or safety. For Sedans, I'd get an Audi every time (and I do). But anyone looking to an SUV for sportiness is fooling himself, they're much too top-heavy for things like drifting and autocross. Why bother with the excess power? The Volvo really is the logical choice here.

      most of people say VOLVO is better, but why in real market, AUDI sells much more than VOLVO???

      Fantastic review! I’ve narrowed my next car purchase between these two vehicles but unfortunately your review didn’t help settle on one. By no fault of the review, both automobiles are fantastic and tough to pick between them.

      Q5 styling inside and out was less appealing than the XC60 for me. The Q7 is stunning though. I went for the XC60 Inscription with more extras. Get it in a month.

      I can’t thank you enough for this side by side comparison. I was literally torn between the two BUT here’s the 3 reasons why I DECIDED ON THE VOLVO ...
      (1) Comfort/seats were better than Audi. (2) in Southern California, the VOLVO GETS YOU HOV LANE STATUS whereas Audi does NOT and that’s huge here (3) I’m second generation Swedish 🇸🇪 so ...

      XC60 is a beautiful car, nicer interior and has way more power.It also has many extras over the Q5, included in the price. Soo, it's a much better car and a better buy.

      Contemplating getting an XC60. I think it's just far better than all the competition and I've been window shopping quite thoroughly.

      Volvo is better in everyway... Not to mention, Audi produces junk and is hands down, the UGLIEST sub crossover in the segment. The benz GLC, BMW X3, Jaguar f-pace, Porsche macan, landrover discovery, Alfa selvio, are all insanely good looking cars. Volvo is killing it!

      You do know that the Macan and the Audi are built by the same company and that many of the parts are the same? You also know that Audi places a full 10 spots higher on the Consumer Reports reliability rankings?

      I doubt you have any first person experience with either car...

      We have spent the last 2 weeks SUV shopping, we have test driven everything from Chevy's up to BMW's, this past weekend among the SUV's we test drove were the Audi and the Volvo, I can honestly say, there is no competition, the Volvo is better in every regard than the Audi, in fact it's the first one I have gotten out of the test drive and told the wife "this is the one", it's a fantastic vehicle.

      My wife and I are doing exactly the same thing. Driven all the top brands including Mercedes, Range Rover, Jaguar, Lexus and the Volvo. The ONLY one that thoroughly impressed me and left me with an impression I just can't shake is the Volvo XC60 Inscription. I thought the 4 cyl engine was going to be a problem. It definitely is NOT. Also, beautiful interior! We drove the Lexus after the Volvo and it is positively FULL of buttons and clutter by comparison. The RX350 is a great vehicle. It may have Love-it or Hate-it styling, but you simply cannot fault the fit/finish and reliability. However, when it comes to pure style, the new XC60 Inscription beats them all hands down!

      Audi looks more sporty and simple, Volvo looks more luxurious and classy. Both are great, it depends on what people are looking for.
