Which is the Right SUV for You?



Audi Q5

Interior

When you get an SUV, you expect comfort, style, and space. That’s what you get with either of these SUVs.


Audi Q5

Room for Everyone

The 2022 Audi Q5 and the Acura RDX make room for up to five passengers to stretch out and relax inside the cabin. Whether you’re driving the kids to school or travelling with other adults, you’ll have room for your passengers.

If you or your passengers need to bring along belongings, it will be simple with either the Q5 or RDX. Both of these SUVs offer more than 720 liters (25.4 cubic feet) of cargo space.

Sophistication on 4 Wheels

In addition to providing comfort, leather elevates the style. However, only the Audi Q5 has standard leather seats.

In the Acura RDX, you'll need to upgrade to the second-highest trim level to gain access to leather since leatherette-trimmed seating comes standard. Even if you do opt for the A-Spec trim, the seats are only leather-trimmed and are mostly suede material.




Audi Q5

Safety

From the moment you start the car to the moment you arrive at your destination, you’re counting on a safe ride from your SUV. With many safety features coming standard in both, you can feel confident with the Q5 and RDX.


Audi Q5

Next-Generation Safety

The 2022 Audi Q5 and the Acura RDX excel when it comes to safety. Both SUVs help you avoid accidents in the first place with advanced driver-assistance suites. With an available array of intelligent features, you can drive with more awareness.

In the Q5, enjoy the following features:

  • Standard Audi pre sense® city
  • Standard Audi side assist
  • Available Audi adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam assist

The Acura RDX has similar versions of these Q5 systems as well.

Audi Safety Features

The Audi Q5 does have a leg up when it comes to standard Audi pre sense® rear. This system senses when there may be a rear collision and prepares your car by tightening the seat belts, closing the windows and sunroof, and adjusting the seats to minimize impact.

Unfortunately, this feature is specific to Audi, so you won’t have this extra layer of protection in the RDX.



Audi Q5

Performance

These SUVs have a lot of power under the hood, and our team is here to give you the details.


Audi Q5

Refined Power at Every Turn

The 2022 Q5 and the 2022 RDX are ready with dynamic powertrains to excite your drive. In the Audi Q5, you’ll have your choice between two motors, each delivering over 200 horsepower, so you can choose the best one to match your driving needs.

The Acura RDX, on the other hand, is only available with one engine, but it does provide decent power output for an enjoyable ride.

Audi Exclusives

In addition to the multiple powertrain options, the Audi Q5 also has available adaptive air suspension and adaptive damping. These suspensions are built to provide extra control when cornering while also adjusting your ride height to match the terrain you're encountering.

Once again, these amenities are Audi exclusives, so you won’t be treated to them with the RDX.
