X5 vs Q5 Interior Design & Amenities

The 2019 Audi Q5 and 2019 BMW X5 each have impressive cabins that make use of high-quality materials. However, many people find the X5 to be quite simplistic in its styling.

The Q5, on the other hand, is more upscale, featuring various soft materials across the interior. The large infotainment display is the focal point of an expansive wraparound dash, and an available Ambient LED Lighting package can make the interior glow in soft white, Maritime Blue, or Impulse Red lighting.

BMW X5 vs Audi Q5 Technologies

If you love technology, you'll greatly appreciate the features found inside the BMW X5 and Audi Q5. For instance, they both come standard with HD Radio™ and a 10-speaker sound system. Plus, both offer SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which comes with over 100 channels of news, sports, and commercial-free music to choose from to keep you entertained on your daily commutes.

Additionally, the Q5 comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. To use these features, simply plug your phone into the vehicle's USB port and access your favorite apps without actually touching your phone while driving.

Meanwhile, the X5 only comes standard with Apple CarPlay™, so Android users may feel a bit left out. Plus, this smartphone integration feature is only available as a 1-year trial, whereas the Q5 offers it for the entire lifespan of ownership.
