The RX 350 caters to the driver seeking a refined yet powerfully advanced V6. The Lexus RX offers an additional 47 peak horsepower over the four-cylinder engine in the Q5. The Q5 also requires premium fuel while the Q5 only requires regular unleaded fuel. The smooth Lexus V6 offers an overall more sophisticated ride than the Audi’s inline-4.
The RX 350 is filled with luxurious features you will use daily when driving around Bucks County. The standard Smart Key System speeds vehicle entry, and the standard power tilt-and-telescopic steering column makes it easy to get comfortable. Both of these RX standard features cost extra on the Q5. With the importance of technology today, the RX comes equipped standard with six USB ports. The Q5 has just two standard USB ports, with only two more available as an additional option.
We spend a lot of time in our vehicle commuting to work and appointments around Bucks County and the Philadelphia region. That time deserves to be enjoyed in comfort. The RX 350 offers a roomy, accommodating interior, with more shoulder room and legroom to stretch out than you will find in the Q5. Drivers will particularly appreciate the RX’s additional 3.1 inches of legroom on long drives. The RX is not only roomier for the driver and passenger, but also provides more cargo space than the Q5 with the second row of seats folded down.
When it comes to safety, quantity and quality matter. The Lexus RX 350 offers a comprehensive array of protection for the driver and passengers with ten standard airbags—including driver’s knee airbag and front passenger’s seat cushion airbag. By comparison, the Audi Q5 has just six standard airbags, with eight offered as an extra-cost option.
Both the RX 350 and the Q5 offer safety features, but you will have to pay extra to get them on the Audi, while they come standard on the Lexus RX 350. The RX 350 comes with Lexus Safety System+ as standard equipment, including Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Sign Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control. Audi requires the purchase of expensive options to offer similar features on Q5.
Lexus drivers can drive assured knowing that they have a six-year or 70,000-mile powertrain warranty for their engine and driveline, while Audi only offers their drivers a shorter, four-year or 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
