Discover What Separates the Audi Q5 from the Lexus RX 350 in Columbia, Florence and Lexington

If you've been contemplating a new luxury crossover recently, you're well aware that there are many options available. For folks who aren't exclusively committed to one manufacturer, it's beneficial to take time and research the choices before taking a select few out for a test drive. At Audi Columbia, we'd like to give you some information about how the 2017 Audi Q5 crossover compares to the 2017 Lexus RX 350.

The Audi Q5 Goes Head-to-Head with the Lexus RX 350

There's no mistaking the fact that the Lexus RX 350 is a nice-looking SUV, but drivers choose the Audi Q5 for far more than its sophisticated exterior appeal.  Here are just a few reasons that they're flocking to the Q5:

  • Performance: The Q5 features the legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, helping to maximize traction and handling in all weather conditions -- even during rain storms. The Lexus base model only offers front-wheel drive.
  • Price: From the start the Audi Q5 is less expensive than the Lexus, so you're able to add some options to the Audi without breaking your budget. Plus, given that the two vehicles have received roughly the same EPA-estimated  mpg ratings, the Audi's larger fuel tank will result in fewer trips to the gas station.

  • Interior Amenities: while leather seating surfaces and a sunroof are standard issue on the Q5, they'll cost extra in the Lexus. And don't forget about such Audi-exclusive technologies as the Audi virtual cockpit and Audi connect® -- which offers Google Earth with 3D satellite imagery, Wi-Fi hotspot, local traffic and much more connectivity.
  • Safety: both vehicles are top safety picks, with the Q5 offering front-seat occupant detection, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) in the rear seats, stability control, traction control, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Brake Assist and tire-pressure monitoring system all as standard features.
