2019 Acura RDX vs. 2018 Audi Q5

If you’re looking for a new high-tech, family-friendly SUV, you’ll want to see what the 2019 Acura RDX has to offer against competition like the 2018 Audi Q5. While both are fully equipped and capable vehicles, only one comes out on top. In the end, comparing the Acura RDX vs. Audi Q5 can help you decide.

Performance & Price

While both the RDX and Q5 have similar engines, the RDX provides a bit more power. The base 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine produces up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque whereas the Q5’s 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder makes 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque for Syosset drivers. Out of the two models, only the Acura RDX offers front- or all-wheel drive for a starting MSRP of $37,300*. The Q5 is only all-wheel drive and starts at $41,500. For more power and a more affordable price, the RDX is the right choice.

Interior Space and Technology

Not only does the RDX interior provide up to 79.8 cubic feet of cargo space, beating out the Q5’s 79.8 cubic feet, but the RDX also provides features not offered in the Q5 including noise cancellation tech and front heated seats standard. And while these models sport advanced infotainment systems for seamless connection to music, news, and information you need when taking to the Melville roads, but the RDX also offers:

  • Remote vehicle starter
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • True Touchpad Interface™
  • Acura/ELS Studio 3D® Premium Audio System

Advanced safety is essential in a new SUV and both the Acura RDX and Audi Q5 provide with features including:

  • Responsive AWD
  • Collision mitigation braking systems
  • Blind spot warning systems
  • Rearview cameras

In the end, however, when you want to opt for more, the RDX has the technology upgrade you need for less than that of the Q5.
