2020 Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Engine Options

A luxury SUV should give drivers both comfort and robust performance on Lakewood Ranch roads. The engines on both of these vehicles inspire, with the starter V6 on the Lexus boasting exceptional power:

  • Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 Standard Engine: The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine on the Audi Q5 comes with 7-speed automatic transmission, while the 3.5L V6 engine that comes standard on the Lexus RX 350 is even more capable with 8-speed automatic transmission.
  • Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 Horsepower and Torque: The Audi Q5 powers your Venice commute with 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The Lexus offers drivers even more ponies with standard 295 hp and 286 lb-ft of torque.
  • Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 Drivetrain: The Audi Q5 comes standard with Quattro® all-wheel drive, while the Lexus RX 350 has standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive.

While the standard all-wheel drive on the Audi Q5 has its perks, the power and versatility of the standard Lexus RX 350 engine can’t be beaten.

2020 Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Safety Features

When it comes to safety, both Lexus and Audi have outfitted their SUVs with helpful technology. Each has its own perks, while features like second-row side airbags come standard on the Lexus RX 350.

  • Audi Q5 Standard Safety Features: Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Bi-Xenon High Beam Assist, and available second-row side airbags
  • Lexus RX 350 Safety Features: Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), LED headlights, Second-row side airbags, Driver and passenger knee airbags, Available LED Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS)

Standard safety features are vital, but drivers also need to keep their car in great shape. The 72 months/70,000 miles on the Lexus powertrain warranty also provides more security than the Q5 as you’re taking in your SUV for repair andmaintenance.

2020 Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Interior Features

Both of these SUVs have inviting cabins that will keep everyone in the car comfortable, even on long trips outside Bradenton. Features on the base trims include:
