When it comes to luxury crossovers, the segment is quite crowded, making it difficult to narrow down your search in Delray Beach. Two top contenders should be the Lexus RX 350 and the Audi Q5. While both certainly have their merits, only one can go home with you to Lake Worth. So, which will it be?

After exploring our Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 comparison, we’re sure you will find that the Lexus RX 350 is more deserving of that coveted spot in your garage.



Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Engine and Horsepower

The first area we’ll look at in our Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 comparison is performance. Under the hood of the RX 350 is a 2.4L turbo inline 4-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Together, you can expect 275 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The Q5 comes with a smaller turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 engine, and it is paired with a 7-speed automated manual transmission. This duo only generates 201 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque.

Front-wheel drive comes standard with the RX 350, but you have the option to upgrade to AWD if you like for added traction and control on Palm Beach Gardens roads. AWD is the only option with the Q5.

Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Interior

Take a look at the cabins of each luxury SUV, and you will notice that the Lexus RX 350 has a more appealing list of amenities.

Lexus RX 350 Interior Features (Base Trim)

  • Backup camera with standard dynamic gridlines
  • 12 speakers standard with Lexus Premium Sound System
  • Standard heated front seats
  • Available cloud navigation

Audi Q5 Interior Features (Base Trim)

  • Backup camera without dynamic gridlines
  • 10 speakers
  • Heated front seats
  • Climate-controlled rear seats

To enjoy a navigation system or a memory system in the 2023 Audi Q5, you have to upgrade to a higher trim level.

Lexus RX 350 vs. Audi Q5: Overall Value

To complete our Audi Q5 vs. Lexus RX 350 comparison, we dive into warranty details. When you choose the Lexus RX 350, you can take advantage of 72 months or 70,000 miles of powertrain coverage as well as a 48-month or 50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty.

With the Q5, you only get 48 months or 50,000 miles of coverage. Even though the 2023 RX 350 has a slightly higher price tag, more features and better warranty coverage make it more than worth the investment.
