Compare 2020 Lexus RX vs. 2019 Audi Q5
LEXUS OVERALL ADVANTAGES
BOLD EXTERIOR STYLING
RX combines a dramatic spindle grille, sculpted fenders and floating roof design for an upscale visual impact. Most other crossover SUVs now look staid by comparison, with lookalike styling and conservative profiles.
RX has a particularly spacious interior that features a large rear seat. Legroom for both front- and rear-seat occupants is especially generous, and the rear seat slides and reclines.
The available and industry-first 12.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display offers a full-screen navigation map and simultaneous access to audio or climate controls and various systems. The option includes the easy-to-use, mouse-like Remote Touch Interface.
STRIKING CABIN DESIGN
RX has one of the most striking interiors in the premium crossover SUV market, with a truly modern ambiance. By comparison, most other crossover SUVs have interiors that look cautiously traditional and restrained.
F SPORT OPTION
RX is offered in a higher-performance RX 350 F SPORT model, with chassis and styling upgrades. With its sport-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension and assertive styling, F SPORT stands out in a crowd.
For RX L models, the full-length side curtain airbags cover all three rows. The standard Lexus Safety System+ includes Pre-Collision System (PCS) and Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Intelligent High Beams (IHB) and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Intuitive Parking Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking is available.
