2017 Range Rover Sport vs. 2017 Audi SQ5

Range Rover Sport

SQ5

         

Blending luxury features and SUV capability, the 2017 Range Rover Sport and the 2017 Audi SQ5 are both popular options for Schaumburg drivers. However, if you're planning to take your whole family out on weekend trips to Lake Michigan, there's a clear winner. Find out which model offers more available performance, features, and SUV capability in this comparison from Land Rover Hoffman Estates.

Engine Options

You can equip the Range Rover Sport with one of three engines: a gas powered V6, a turbodiesel V6, and a supercharged gas V8. Let's see how the V8 option compares to the SQ5's most powerful engine:

  • The Range Rover Sport SVR's power is supplied by a 5.0L supercharged V8 engine. This exciting power plant produces 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, and it can propel the Range Rover Sport from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. That's a figure that rivals many sports cars.

  • The SQ5 only comes with one engine option: a 3.0L V6 that puts out 350 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. Its 0 to 60 mph time of 5 seconds flat is admirable, but it can't match the Range Rover Sport's pure speed.

Whether you'd prefer diesel efficiency or V8 power, the Range Rover Sport has you covered.

Available Features

Land Rover has long offered the finest in British engineering, and the Range Rover Sport continues that upstanding tradition. The following features can be added:

  • 23-Speaker Meridian Audio System

  • Rear Seat Entertainment System

  • Self Parking Feature

  • Cooled Front and Rear Seating

  • Four-Zone Climate Control

Sadly, those premium features aren't available in the SQ5's options list.

Trusted Capability

If you're planning to take advantage of your next SUV's capability features, the Range Rover Sport is better equipped. With up to 7,716 lbs of towing capacity, it can haul heavy trailers without breaking a sweat. Unfortunately, the SQ5 can only deliver a maximum towing capacity of 4,400 lbs. When you explore their cargo capacity numbers, the Range Rover Sport has a similar advantage. With all seats folded down, it offers a massive 62.2 cubic feet of capacity, while the SQ5 tops out at 57.3 cubic feet. Need plenty of room for gardening supplies or sporting goods? The Range Rover has your back.
