Performance and Efficiency
We mentioned that these models are extremely versatile, which the mix of size and sportiness helps to prove. Each Cadillac XT5 comes with a V6 engine that has much more horsepower, 310, than the 252-horsepower four-cylinder engine of the Audi Q5 while they provide similar torque specs.
However, a few key differences set the two apart. Even with the larger engine, the Cadillac XT5 has a lower curb weight than the Audi Q5, so that advantage in power is even more noticeable, and the Audi Q5 uses turbocharging to reach its power specs, so you'll experience some turbo lag when accelerating, which isn’t true of the Cadillac XT5's V6.
To top it all off, the Cadillac XT5 can go for more highway miles on one tank of gas than the Audi Q5, so Austintown drivers won’t have to spend longer drives looking out for the nearest gas station.
