The Audi Q5 Vs. The BMW X3 and Lexus RX450h

Agile, sophisticated and versatile, the Audi Q5 confidently surges ahead of comparable compact SUVs within the segment. From its uniquely capable powertrain to the array of advanced driver assistance technologies, the Audi Q5 outstrips the competition with impeccable style, affordable pricing and dependable performance. While models like the BMW X3 and Lexus RX450h offer drivers formidable opposition when considering the Audi Q5, their specifications and accompanying prices ultimately fail to justify their selection over the Audi Q5. Ideal for adventurous drivers in Lafayette and Crawfordsville, or families seeking an ideal balance between comfort, convenience and capability around Monticello, Frankfort and West Lafayette, the Audi Q5 remains a model worthy of consideration.

The Audi Q5 Vs. The BMW X3

The BMW X3 comes comparably equipped to the Audi Q5. With powerful engine specifications and dynamic handling, the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 are frequently pitted against one another. However, the marginal advancements provided by the BMW X3 at higher trim levels begin to exceed reasonable budget constraints, and result in matching base specifications found on the Audi Q5 - resulting in the Audi Q5's superiority.

  • Standard-equipped, the BMW X3 features a 2.0-liter engine with 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet. The Audi Q5, also fitted with a 2.0-liter TFSI® engine, produces 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet.
  • Base price for the BMW X3 is $41,000, while the Audi Q5's starting price is negligibly higher at $41,500.
  • Both vehicles feature a five-star NHTSA safety rating - the highest possible rating. However, the BMW X3 doesn't feature the Audi pre sense® system for further improved safety and security.
  • The BMW X3 offers a marginally larger quantity of maximum cargo capacity, with 62.7 cubic feet as opposed to the Audi Q5's 60.4 cubic feet.
  • The Audi Q5 comes standard with the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology, while the BMW X3 offers available xDrive all-wheel drive on select models.
  • Both vehicles feature an array of plush upholstery materials and interior amenities - however, the Audi Q5's sleek, sophisticated approach results in an executive eminence unparalleled by comparable models.


The Audi Q5 Vs. The Lexus RX450h

The Lexus RX450h offers drivers hybrid technology for additional power while retaining efficiency - offering a worthy contender for the conventional combustion engine equipped within the Audi Q5. Uniquely styled yet incomparable to the bold design of the Audi Q5, the Lexus RX450h stands as a worthy contender.

  • Both vehicles come equipped with all-wheel drive. However, the simplistic all-wheel drive system employed within the Lexus RX450h hardly stands as comparable to the iconic Audi quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology found within the Audi Q5.
  • The Lexus RX450's engine and accompanying hybrid technology result in a net system horsepower of 308. However, the Audi Q5's 2.0-liter TFSI® engine features more balanced and torque-heavy performance, with 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet - resulting in better off-road performance.
  • The Lexus RX450 boasts comfortable leather upholstery - however, its straightforward interior design and lack of ergonomic craftsmanship ultimately falls short of surpassing the Audi Q5.
  • Neither the 2018 nor 2019 Lexus RX450h have received a safety rating from the NHTSA - however, the Audi Q5 has received top marks, with a five-star rating.
  • The Lexus RX450h offers an Enform App Suite and large multimedia display. However, the system lacks the innovative MMI® all-in-touch system found available for the Audi Q5, allowing for handwritten navigation of the advanced and intuitive Audi connect® system.
  • Offering only 56.3 cubic feet of interior capacity, the Lexus RX450h fails to surpass the Audi Q5's 60.4 cubic feet of maximum interior cargo capacity.
