New BMW X5 vs. Audi Q5 – Standard Performance 

Variety is always nice to have, but chances are you already know which performance you want. If you want a gas-powered model, these Audi vs. BMW lineups start with gas-powered models, but once again, the 2024 BMW X5 stands out with its higher horsepower and torque. What this really means is that even if you go with one of the entry-level models, you’ll enjoy the high-end performance in the X5, whereas the Q5’s specs are nowhere near that level the BMW SUV upholds:  

2024 BMW X5 xDrive40i

  • 3.0L BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine
  • 375 hp
  • 398 lb-ft of torque

What if you want more efficiency and electric performance in Durango, CO? Same story once again: the BMW X5 xDrive50e Plug-In Hybrid churns an additional significant amount of power that the Audi Q5 PHEV just can’t compete with:


2024 BMW X5 xDrive50e Plug-In Hybrid

  • 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine with integrated electric motor
  • 483 hp

2023 Audi Q5 PHEV

With the X5 M Competition model, the power will be pushed all the way to 617 hp thanks to the 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine paired with latest 48V mild-hybrid technology!
