The world of luxury compact SUVs is filled with delightful rides like the 2019 Volvo XC40 and the 2019 Audi Q5. Both promising to offer comfort to its passengers, these rides are definitely remarkable. What else should you learn about these two cars? Read on to find out the answer to this question and be able to compare how one stands out over the other.

Design & Style

Breathtaking design defines the exterior of the 2019 Volvo XC40. It impresses even more with its 18-inch wheels and LED headlights. The roof rails also provide some ruggedness to its exterior. Inside it, you will notice how premium cabin materials have been chosen by its manufacturer. Add to that, there is also ample space to seat up to five adults in the cabin.

Outside the 2019 Audi Q5, there is also reason to be wowed with this car. The five-seating capacity is also one to look forward to when trying to scrutinize what it can offer in the design and style aspect. The middle seat in the car has limited legroom though thus making adults cramp-up when the need arises. Interior panels also include stitching that lessens points on luxury for the supposed upscale materials in the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Volvo XC40 is blessed with an impressive gauge cluster display for its infotainment system. This one also offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Safety wise, you will be protected with the presence of features like lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning, above all others.

As for the 2019 Audi Q5, techies include a seven-inch touchscreen display for its infotainment system. It also has a voice command system. Providing support for smartphone integration, this car is somewhat confusing as some of the functions can only be done through its control knobs, which can be distracting at some point. In case you want to know what's in it for your safety, you can forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.


Gifted with engines that are spanning a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity, the 2019 Volvo XC40 and the 2019 Audi Q5 show results of 248 horsepower. Differences in engine performance between these two are more noticeable when fuel efficiency ratings are considered. City driving rates are 23/22mpg for the V90/Q5 while highway driving results in 33mpg for the Volvo and only 27mpg for the Audi.

The Bottom Line

A car that has the classy and sporty feel on the outside, with a set of technologies that are more than just functional, the 2019 Volvo XC40 is truly one of those rides that are worth purchasing. It also has a fuel efficiency that defeats that of the 2019 Audi Q5's. What else can you ask for?
