Roomy and comfortable seats, lots of cargo space, and a suite of luxurious features are the hallmark of this category. If this sounds like the right kind of car for your lifestyle, keep reading this review to learn more about these two great cars. 

This review will provide you with more details about each vehicle, so you can be confident in your purchase decision. Audi Wyoming Valley is committed to helping our customers throughout Dallas, Clarks Summit, and Mountain Top find the perfect vehicle for their lifestyle.

Audi vs Lexus: Handling & Power

The 2018 Audi Q5 comes with standard all-wheel drive, making it perfect for handling on icy winter days in Dallas, Clarks Summit, and Mountain Top. The 2017 Lexus RX offers standard front-wheel drive, but you'll have to pay more for all-wheel drive.

The Audi Q5 lives up to the Audi name by providing a hard-hitting, speedy driving experience. This is not a boring family SUV, but a fun to drive car that is still able to maintain a smooth and comfortable ride. The Lexus RX is just as comfortable to drive, but lacks some of the excitement of the Audi.

Audi's 2018 Q5 offers an additional, more powerful twin-turbocharged engine that allows for a maximum horsepower of 354, compared to Lexus' 295.

A Luxurious Ride: Audi Q5 vs Lexus RX

Both of these SUVs offer supreme luxury in their interior styling choices. Both Audi and Lexus are known for their high-quality materials and refined, elegant design, and neither model disappoints.

The 2018 Audi Q5 features 40/20/40 fold-down back seats which provide up to 60.4 cubic feet of cargo space. The Lexus also features 40/20/40 folding back seats, but they do not fold completely flat, which reduces utility for transporting larger items.

Get Techy With It

Audi's latest technology, the Virtual Cockpit, is available on the new 2018 Q5. This feature offers a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, which allows for complete customization of audio and navigation. Both Google Earth™ and Google Street View™ are available, making navigation incredibly simple. 

Both SUVs offer several driver-assist and safety features, as well as a fully integrated smartphone interface. A notable Audi feature is Audi pre sense®, which can prepare the car for an impending collision by beginning to close open windows and providing seatbelt tension to protect passengers.

Audi Q5 vs Lexus RX: Verdict

Now that you know more about the excellent features available in the Audi Q5 and the Lexus RX, you can take the next step in your journey to a new vehicle.

We believe that our customers will love the Audi's comfortable yet exciting drivability and its fun and functional tech options. To learn more about the 2018 Audi Q5, contact Audi Wyoming Valley to meet a member of our team and test drive one of these gorgeous SUVs for yourself.
