Audi Q5 vs Lexus RX 350

When it comes to high-end SUVs, there are many options to choose from. Two of these top luxury models are the 2019 Audi Q5 and the 2019 Lexus RX 350.

While both vehicles deliver great quality, their performance, spaciousness, and technology features each bring something different.

Check out the Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350  comparison by reading the article below. Then, if you're in the Miami, Miami Beach, or Hollywood areas, come over to Audi North Miami and test drive your favorite.

Audi Q5 vs Lexus RX 350: More Space for More Stuff

One of the great benefits of owning an SUV is the extra amount of cargo space these vehicles can provide. Whether through a roomy trunk or handy roof-rack accessories, they make road trips a breeze.

The Audi Q5 stays true to this statement, offering 25.1 cubic feet of cargo volume when the rear seats are upright. The Lexus RX 350, on the other hand, only offers 18.4 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Still need more space? Attach your choice of several optional accessories to Audi's available roof rack for even more adventures. These include:

  • Fork-mount bike rack
  • Thule® SUP Taxi
  • Compact cargo carrier

The Lexus RX 350 does offer Roof Rack Cross Bars; just without the choice of additional accessories.

Power and Performance

Expansive cargo room is even better when paired with efficient fuel economy and a powerful engine.

Travel farther without having to refuel in the Q5, which provides an EPA-estimated 22 city/27 highway MPG.* Although the RX 350's EPA-estimated 20 city MPG is only slightly lower, it's still not as fuel efficient as its competitor.

Plus, adrenaline junkies will revel in the speed of the Audi Q5. This powerful SUV has a top track speed of 130 MPH and can go from 0-60 MPH in just 5.9 seconds. The Lexus RX 350 only has a top speed of 124 MPH, going from 0-60 at a slower, 7.7 seconds.

The open road is your playground with the exceptional power and performance of the Audi Q5.

Advanced Technology

Staying connected and entertained during your journey is important. Luckily, the Audi Q5 has got you covered.

While the RX 350 does offer a 12.3-inch multimedia display, it lacks any additional information panels. Inside the Q5, you'll find both an 8.3-inch infotainment display, as well as the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit.

Plus, the Q5 lets you stay connected no matter your device, with available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. The RX 350 does not offer either of these services, however there is the option for Amazon Alexa connectivity.

That's not all. Rock out to your favorite tunes with Audi's available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System, complete with 19 speakers and a 16-channel amplifier. The listening experience inside the Lexus SUV is nice with its Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System, however it falls a bit short with only 15 speakers.

Should I Test Drive the Audi Q5 or the Lexus RX 350?

You've just discovered how the 2019 Audi Q5 and the 2019 Lexus RX 350 stack up to each other. With its superior fuel economy, ample cargo room, and awesome infotainment and audio systems, it's safe to say that the Audi Q5 is the better option.
