You’ll find that while both come with a wide assortment of premium features and offer nearly identical performance specs, there are some key differences that you should take into consideration. Learn more in this Macan vs. Q5 comparison from Porsche St. Paul in Maplewood, MN.

Macan vs. Q5: Performance

With either the base model Porsche Macan or the base trim Audi Q5 you’ll get a 2.0L I-4 engine that delivers 248 hp with 273 lb-ft of torque. Both feature a seven-speed automatic transmission and are equipped with all-wheel drive. The towing capacity of the Macan is 4,409 pounds, just slightly more than the 4,400 pound towing capacity of the Q5. On the track, the Porsche will provide a top speed of 141 mph, while the Audi tops out at 130 mph. A couple of other differences that St. Paul drivers should take a look at 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

Macan vs. Q5: Features

These two luxury crossover SUVs come with a long list of standard comfort, convenience, and tech features, including:

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

A key difference inside the 2019 Macan is the easy-to-use 10.9-inch touchscreen with HD resolution, which runs on the forward-thinking Porsche Communication Management. The touchscreen display in the 2019 Q5 only measures 7 inches.

Another important feature you get with the Macan is Traffic Jam Assist. At speeds of up to 37 mph, this system will apply gentle steering inputs to keep you in your lane and will maintain a safe distance behind the vehicle in front. Ideal when stuck in traffic on I-35E, this system also tracks roadway signs and other vehicles, which is a big help to relieve the stress of traveling on gridlocked roads.
