2018 Audi Q5 vs. 2018 Land Rover Velar

Many car drivers these days are looking for a car that can take them even to the toughest roads. It is good to note that even the most expensive car brands out there have included such in their considerations. For options, you can take a closer look at the comparison we have made for the 2018 Audi Q5 and the 2018 Land Rover Velar.

Design & Style

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is simply rugged on the outside and lacks the finesse that even the most rugged car drivers are looking for in their luxury sports cars. Inside it, you will find the gloss black interior disappointing because it easily attracts fingerprints making it look rather dirty than clean as it supposed to be. If you are after a car with distinctive styling though, you may already like this car.

If you are looking for more, you will find the 2018 Audi Q5 a good choice because its rugged exterior looks very much modern with its steel finish and solid construction. Promising to take you even to tougher roads, the Q5 is loved even more for the use of quality materials in the interiors as well. It is tidy to look at and is crisp in varying levels.

Technology & Safety

One of the most notable technologies in the 2018 Land Rover Velar is the presence of steering wheel controls. However, this technology is not very much welcomed by many for its touch-sensitivity. This can create problems with safety along the road as it produces false positives when stricken by the fingers.

Why not go for the 2018 Audi Q5 instead as this one offers technology features that are just enough to get you through the day's drive. It has everything from voice integration to smartphone integration on top of its user-friendly infotainment system. Controls have been doubled to free more space on the cabin. Advanced safety features include automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning as well as other features to love.


For the base Velar, you will get one with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity which is capable of maximizing yield up to 269lb-ft of torque and 247 horsepower. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, relies on the same size of engine for its total output that reaches up to 273lb-ft of torque and 252 horsepower, slightly higher than that of the Velar's.

The Bottom Line

Land Rover's Range Rover Velar 2018 edition is a welcome addition to the host of great rugged cars. However, if you want to make sure you are getting a rugged car that has all the great aspects you are looking for, it is the 2018 Audi Q5 that must come to mind.
