Land Rover Ventura put this 2019 Range Rover Velar vs. Audi Q5 comparison together to help drivers in Ventura, Camarillo, and Oxnard decide. 

2019 Range Rover Velar vs Audi Q5 Capability 

Land Rover Range Rover Velar

The 2019 Range Rover Velar is a versatile luxury SUV with standard All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics. This capable system can manage torque evenly between the front and rear axles or determine which wheels need more traction and send 100% of the torque to them.

The 2019 Audi Q5 also features all-wheel drive and its signature quattro® to shift between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive when conditions call for it. However, it isn’t able to transfer all the torque to rear axle like the Range Rover Velar.

You’ll also be able to take your heaviest cargo with you when you hit the road in the Range Rover Velar. It has a towing capacity of up to 5,291 pounds. While the Audi Q5 is also very powerful, it may struggle to bring your trailer on your next road trip with its 4,400-pound towing capacity.

2019 Range Rover Velar vs Audi Q5 Cargo Room

Both luxury SUVs are designed to give you a comfortable ride in an upscale interior and provide you with the capability to carry all your cargo. The 2019 Range Rover Velar has two rows of seats and a roomy trunk with 34.4 cubic feet of cargo room. 

There’s lots of convenient options to accommodate more cargo too. You can tie longer items like a Christmas tree or a surf board to the roof rails, or fold down the 60/40 split-folding rear seats. With the back row folded you’ll have up to 61.1 cubic feet of cargo room inside.

The 2019 Audi Q5 is also able to help you move lots of gear, just not as much of it. It also has two rows of seats with room for five people, but it only has 25.1 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. While you can still fold the seats down, its cargo capacity still falls short at just 53.1 cubic feet.
