Luxury crossover shoppers in Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Irving, TX, have two great choices for their next vehicle. The 2020 Audi Q5 and the 2020 Acura RDX offer an ideal combination of performance, interior comfort, and technology.

How will you be able to choose? We at Audi Grapevine are here to help you do just that with this detailed comparison. Read ahead to see which vehicle is a better fit for your needs!

Q5 vs RDX: Performance

The 2020 Audi Q5 is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® direct-injection DOHC engine that delivers a whopping 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power, you'll be able to tow as much as 4,400 pounds of trailer weight with the right equipment.

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 talented transmission and dynamic drivetrain duo, you'll conquer every road with efficiency and confidence.

The 2020 Acura RDX is also powered by a standard 2.0L turbo engine that offers roughly the same amount of power as the Q5. However, you'll miss out on standard all-wheel capability with this model as its AWD system is just an available piece of equipment.

Q5 vs RDX: Space & Comfort

The interiors of the 2020 Audi Q5 and the 2020 Acura RDX offer an ideal combination of comfort and convenience. Both seat five passengers with plenty of room to spare as well as 50+ total cubic feet of cargo space to work with.
Both also offer premium leather seating surfaces and heated front seats. However, you'll find that the Q5's interior comfort options 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 seat-configuration options than the RDX's 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Put absolutely any combination of the Q5's three rear seats down, while the RDX gives you only three total folding options.

Q5 vs RDX: Technology

As luxury vehicles, both the 2020 Audi Q5 and the 2020 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. Simply write your entry for the infotainment system rather than typing out each individual letter or number.
