Do you enjoy the finer things in life, like taking road trips out of town just to get away?
If you’re interested in taking a ride in the lap of luxury, you’re probably looking for a reliable SUV for your time on the open road. Our team at Pfaff Porsche has two options for you—the 2022 Porsche Macan and 2022 Audi Q5. Which one is better for your lifestyle? Vaughan, ON, drivers can find out in our comparison below.
Porsche Macan vs Audi Q5: Performance
Let’s be honest—both Porsche and Audi know their way around a high-performing vehicle. The 2022 Porsche Macan and Audi Q5 are no strangers to a thrilling ride. In fact, both models sport matching 261 horsepower on their base engines! However, a difference lies within their torque values:
Porsche Macan: 295 lb-ft of torque
Audi Q5: 273 lb-ft of torque
While you will experience similar startup speeds in both SUVs, the Macan’s slightly larger torque value may help you experience greater overall power on the road. So, if you’re looking for a swift and brawny performance out of your next vehicle, the Macan may be your top choice.
Porsche Macan vs Audi Q5: Interior
When it comes to the interior of these two models, they are familiarly similar. In fact, they both equip these standard features:
3-Zone Climate Control—You, your co-pilot, and your rear passengers can settle into their own personal oasis.
Heated Front Seats—Cold morning commutes just got toastier.
Over 1,500 litres of Cargo Space—While their figures don’t match exactly, both models do open up over 1,500 litres of cabin space for your farmer’s market goodies or golf clubs.
What sets these two SUVs apart? The Macan makes a heated steering wheel standard, unlike the Audi Q5. This feature can come in handy when you need to warm up quickly during your chilly commute.
Porsche Macan vs Audi Q5: Technology
Have you been searching for a model with ergonomic features and a minimalistic cockpit? If so, the Porsche Macan and the Audi Q5 won’t disappoint.
While both vehicles’ cabins look tidy, they differ in terms of design. The Macan has removed all mechanical buttons and replaced them with digital ones for an even smoother appearance. The Q5, on the other hand, still uses dials and physical buttons for some its features. Which cabin aesthetic do you prefer?
On top of their design differences, the Macan and the Q5 equip different-sized infotainment screens:
Porsche Macan: 10.9-inch display
Audi Q5: 10.1-inch display
While their size difference is not drastic, the Macan’s extended screen can aid in a driver’s accessibility to it while driving. Speaking of accessibility, the Macan also makes a voice control system standard—a feature activated by someone saying, “Hey, Porsche.”
Unfortunately, the Audi Q5 does not offer a similar feature. Going without means you may need to have your co-pilot help you find directions to your next location or help you find a hotel along your route. You’ll be able to ask for this information in the Porsche without needing further assistance by anyone in the cabin, or without stopping.
2022 Porsche Macan vs Audi Q5—The Winner!
If you’ve been researching the Porsche Macan or the Audi Q5, you’ve probably discovered that both models are luxurious and capable of taking you anywhere your heart desires. However, thanks to its higher torque value, its additional comfort amenities, and its technological advancements, we believe the Porsche Macan fits right along with the finer things in your life.
