The 2019 Porsche Macan and the 2019 Audi Q5 are both capable and refined compact luxury SUVs, and either one could meet the needs of a wide variety of Farmington Hills area drivers. While they share many of their specs and features, the Macan edges out the Q5 in several key areas. Learn more in this Macan vs. Q5 comparison from Fred Lavery Porsche Company.

Macan vs. Q5: Performance

The base trim models of both the Porsche Macan and Audi Q5 are powered by a 2.0L I-4 engine that produces 248 hp with 273 lb-ft of torque. They both are equipped with a 7-speed auto-shift transmission and all-wheel drive. Towing capacity is nearly identical, with the Macan towing up to 4,409 pounds, and the Q5 towing capability topping out at 4,400 pounds. Additionally, the Macan provides a better top track speed of 141 mph to the 130 mph of the Q5. Some other differences that Rochester Hills drivers may want to take into consideration include:

  • Fuel tank capacity
    • Porsche Macan – 19.8 gallons
    • Audi Q5 – 18.5 gallons
  • Maximum ground clearance
    • Porsche Macan – 9.0 inches (with air suspension)
    • Audi Q5 – 8.2 inches

With the ability to store more fuel in your tank, you’ll be able to spend more time on the road, and less time at the gas station. Although you may not take your Macan off-road, you’ll enjoy a smoother, more enjoyable ride with more ground clearance and air suspension.

Macan vs. Q5: Features

When exploring the features of these two luxury crossover SUVs, you’ll find that both offer a wide array of standard comfort, convenience, and tech features. They share each of the following:

  • Seating for up to 5
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Voice-activated navigation
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • 10-speaker audio system
  • Parking assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Optional cabin ionizer

One important difference you’ll notice when you enter the cabin of the 2019 Macan is the large 10.9-inch touchscreen with HD resolution. The 2019 Q5 only comes with a 7-inch touchscreen display. The Macan is also equipped with Traffic Jam Assist. If you’re stuck in gridlock on I-75, and traveling at speeds of 37 mph or less, this system applies gentle steering adjustments to keep you in your lane, while maintaining your distance from the vehicle in front of you. All this means that the Macan lets you take the stress out of your Rochester Hills commute.
