Knowing you want an Audi SUV is one thing, but deciding between the many options is another. With so many factors to consider, it can feel overwhelming to sift through available features until you’ve found the perfect model.

To help make your decision easier, we’re going to compare three of Audi’s most popular SUV models. In our comparison, we consider two main areas: size and performance. As you’re reading, remember to consider what makes the most sense for your lifestyle.

Main Differences Between The Audi Q3, Q5, and Q7


As you may have guessed the Audi Q3, Q5, and Q7 come in sizes ranging from compact to full-size. The size of an SUV will impact cargo space and available seats for passengers — so you should know what would best suit your life.

For better perspective, view our helpful table below:


Length (inches) Cargo Space (cubic feet) Available rows of seats
Audi Q3 172.8 16.7 2
Audi Q5 182.6 29.1 2
Audi Q7 199.6 37.5 (behind second row)
14.8 (behind third row)


The Q7 is the largest of the three SUVs and offers a power folding third row of seats. When the third row is folded down, it also provides the most cargo space when compared to the Q3 and Q5.

If you don’t require a third row, the Q5 and Q3 still offer expansive cargo capacity. The Audi Q3 is also a compact vehicle, which could improve parking ease in some instances.


A difference in size can also indicate a difference in capabilities and efficiency. For example, a larger vehicle may boast more horsepower, while a more compact one offers more advanced fuel economy. See for yourself in the table below:


Engine Type Horsepower (hp) Torque (lb.-ft.) Efficiency (MPG)
Audi Q3 2.0 TFSI® 200 207 20 City

28 Highway

Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI® 220 258 20 City

27 Highway

Audi Q7 3.0 TFSI® 333 325 19 City

25 Highway


This table shows us that you should choose the Q7 if you want the most power, and you’ll want to drive the Q3 if you want greater fuel efficiency.
