We at Audi Grapevine have put together this 2022 Audi Q5 vs. Acura RDX comparison, so you can see what each has to offer. We're here to help you do just that with this detailed overview. Read ahead to see which vehicle is a better fit for your needs!

Q5 vs RDX: Performance

The 2022 Audi Q5 is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged/TFSI® direct-injection DOHC 4-cylinder engine that delivers a whopping 201 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.

The Q5's engine works alongside a standard 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology. With this duo of a talented transmission and a dynamic drivetrain, you'll conquer every road with efficiency and confidence.

The 2022 Acura RDX is also powered by a strong and standard 2.0L turbo engine. However, you'll miss out on standard all-wheel-drive capability with this model as its AWD system is just an available piece of equipment. The immediate accessibility in the Q5 takes your drive to the next level.

Q5 vs RDX: Space & Comfort

The interiors of the 2022 Audi Q5 and the 2022 Acura RDX offer an ideal combination of comfort and convenience. Both seat five passengers with plenty of room to spare and offer over 50 cubic feet of cargo room to work with.

Both also offer premium leather seating surfaces and heated front seats. However, you'll find that the interior comfort options in the Q5 are a bit more fine-tuned than those of the RDX. While the Q5 has a standard three-zone automatic climate control system, the RDX only offers a dual-zone system.

Additionally, the Q5 offers standard leather seating surfaces and 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats. This arrangement offers many more seating configuration options than the RDX's 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Fold down absolutely any combination of the Q5's three rear seats.

Q5 vs RDX: Technology

As luxury vehicles, both the 2022 Audi Q5 and the 2022 Acura RDX are outfitted with some rather cool technology. Both offer intuitive infotainment systems, convenient smartphone app integration, and premium audio systems.

There are a few extra features offered in the Q5 that you'll miss out on in the RDX, though. The Q5 takes technology to the next level with available Audi connect®. With this feature, you'll have detailed Google Maps™ navigation, real-time weather and traffic information, and a Wi-Fi hotspot right at your fingertips.

The Q5 also offers MMI® all-in-touch handwriting-recognition technology with an incredible 10-inch screen. Simply write your entry for the infotainment system rather than typing out each individual letter or number.
