The crossover SUV is quickly becoming a fan-favorite when it comes to the automobile industry. If you were to take a road trip, then you would certainly notice a myriad of crossovers on the highway. Many high-quality vehicles fall under this category. The 2019 Volvo XC60 and the 2018 Audi Q5 are standout vehicles. These machines host an abundance of impressive features. Here is a quick comparison of Volvo and Audi's outstanding crossover vehicles.


The 2019 Volvo XC60 is one of the most well-crafted automobiles ins society today. This vehicle has an athletic stance that is well-balanced. The iconic Volvo grille is eye-catching, and the beautifully sculpted LED headlamps look stunning in their horizontal design. There are also front-facing LEDs that provide optimum lighting while cornering. Since this vehicle comes in multiple trims, the cars will come equipped with various alloy wheel styles that start at 18 inches. Its panoramic moonroof solidifies the XC60's overall appearance. In addition to those features, this vehicle displays illuminating door handles and aggressive dual tailpipes.

The 2018 Audi Q5 makes every line count as the vehicle's lines flow evenly from front to back. The Q5 also has impressive curves, which gives it a sporty design. The LED front lighting is gorgeous, and the SingleFrame grille prominently displays the Audi logo. The shorter body provides the Q5 with a distinct look, but the high-wheel arches look a bit weird from certain angles. The rear of the Q5 perfectly matches the front, which completes the exterior appearance.


The 2019 Volvo XC60 is perfectly tuned to meet the demands of today's roadways. Many of today's modern vehicles have downsized on actual engine sizes by incorporating forced induction for higher performance. The XC60 is no exception as it comes equipped with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers at least 250 horsepower. Though the engine's displacement is only 2.0 liters, drivers will get up to 258 pound-feet of torque. Its all-wheel-drive system provides wonderful traction on all environmental surfaces. When it comes to fuel consumption, the 2019 Volvo XC60 will offer 22 mpg in the city while offering 28 mpg on the open road.

The 2019 Audi Q5 provides a dynamic driving experience that can't be duplicated by many of its competitors. This vehicle is engineered with the legendary Quattro technology, and the 2.0-liter TFSI engine produces a whopping 252 horsepower. The Q5's dual-clutch automatic transmission is a thing of beauty thanks to its lack of hiccups. Drivers will receive a smoother shifting experience like none other. In addition to that, the 2019 Q5 provides 272 pound-feet of torque.

This cabin also has a Scandinavian design thanks to its Swedish-luxury finishes. There are uniquely styled air vents, wood treatments, and metal-finished controls. Advanced-technological features included are climate control, built-in navigation, and an intuitive driver display.

The Audi Q5's 12.3-inch cluster display jumps out at you with its vivid lighting. The Audio Virtual cockpit will allow for good voice control. For music, the vehicle hosts a Bang & Olufsen sound system that produces up to 755 watts of power. The Q5's interior could use a bit more room, but passengers will thoroughly enjoy Android Auto integration, Apple CarPlay technology, and Audi Connect Wi-Fi.
