Comparing Technology in the 2017 Volvo XC60 vs 2018 Audi Q5

The real fun in a new vehicle is checking out and enjoying all the advanced technology. And while both the 2017 Volvo XC60 and the 2018 Audi Q5 have some cool tech features, one of them offers some pretty serious advantages over the other.

The 2017 Volvo XC60 comes with a fine infotainment system. The vehicle offers navigation, an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, and an onboard hands-free communications system. But there's nothing super special about the system, and it's kind of difficult to use with most of the controls being only on the multi-function steering wheel. 

But the 2018 Audi Q5 system is a thrill to use, especially for the technophile who wants to enjoy the most advanced technology on the market. The system features the newly available MMI® touch infotainment system with handwriting-recognition technology that makes it possible to simply write an address by hand into the navigation system. With audio, phone, and navigational information available in a dash, you can enjoy the Google Street View™ and Google Earth™ views without a bunch of hullabaloo.
