2020 Acura RDX vs 2020 Audi Q5

Serving Memphis, TN

Today’s two-row luxury crossover segment gives you several options to choose from. However, the 2020 Acura RDX ranks among the best. Not only does the new RDX offer great comfort, but it’s also engaging to drive. Let’s find out how the 2020 Acura RDX compares to the 2020 Audi Q5.


Both of these crossovers come standard with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, the 2020 Acura RDX packs more muscle under the hood. Acura rates the RDX’s engine to crank out an enjoyable 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, Audi tunes the Q5 to develop 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. While the RDX uses a 10-speed automatic transmission, you’ll find an eight-speed automatic transmission on the Q5. Aside from enhancing performance, the RDX’s more advanced transmission also helps boost fuel economy. Available as an option, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive makes the Q5 even more entertaining to drive. This cutting AWD system does more than just improve traction on slippery roads. It also takes dry-weather handling to the next level.

Interior Room

When shopping for a new family vehicle, the interior room becomes a significant factor. While both of these models can accommodate up to five passengers, the 2020 Acura RDX gives everyone more space to spread out. Whether they’re sitting in the front or back, RDX passengers will enjoy more legroom. More significant interior cargo space further highlights the RDX’s versatile design.


In terms of overall value, the 2020 Acura RDX continues to dominate the competition. You’ll undoubtedly appreciate its satisfying list of standard equipment. Technology lovers can take advantage of Acura’s True Touchpad Interface. It features a 10.2-inch central display, which is significantly larger than the 2020 Audi Q5’s standard 7.0-inch infotainment display. While the Audi Q5 provides standard automatic emergency braking, every new RDX benefits from an AcuraWatch™ suite of driver aids. Aside from automatic emergency braking, you’ll also receive advanced safety technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist. To get these valuable features on the Q5, buyers must speed more of their hard-earned money.
