2019 Audi Q5 vs 2019 Acura RDX

Serving Pembroke Pines, FL

The Audi Q5 was named the “Compact Luxury SUV Best Buy” for the 2019 model year by Kelley Blue Book. This impressive SUV model entered its second generation last year, so it continues to have a fresh, exciting style, and modern features throughout. As you search for the right luxury SUV to take home, you may wonder how the Q5 rates against the 2019 Acura RDX. The new RDX is also a compact luxury crossover SUV, and it is a third-generation model. Further review reveals the notable differences between these two vehicles.

Exterior Style and Features

The exterior of the Q5 perfectly accents its sporty façade with luxurious elements. From the defined contouring across the sloped hood to the pointed design of the LED headlights and the chrome molding along with the lower side panels, the 2019 Q5 has stunning accentuation from front to rear. Throughout the exterior of the Audi Q5, you may find 18 or 19-inch wheels, all-season tires, LED foglamps, a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, a rear spoiler, heated side-view mirrors, integrated side turn signals and other equipment. In comparison, the 2019 Acura RDX has a thick, shortened hood that fades into a pointed grille. Side contouring and molding carry the eye upward to a large rear. Its equipment may include LED headlights, a sunroof, side mirror-integrated turning lights, and a black tailgate spoiler.

Interior Design and Features

The interior of the 2019 Audi Q5 has been equally well-designed across all surfaces. The dashboard design has a dominant, modern look that gives the driver easy access to all essential technologies. If you decide to take the new Q5 home, you may appreciate interior features like smartphone integration, a large color display screen with touch capabilities, a navigation system, an MMI touchpad, a Bang & Olufsen audio system with 3D technology, a heads-up display, leather seating, and other thoughtful features. The design of the RDX’s interior is notably different. Its dual-tone dashboard flows inward to a tight center stack and console. The touch-screen display sits above the center stack, and the design tapers inward below this screen. Its features include leather trim, a leather steering wheel, cruise control, interior lighting, a sound system, and more.


The 2019 Audi Q5 also has been well-appointed with advanced safety technologies. Depending on your preferred Q5 trim, you could appreciate standard and city pre-sense equipment, vehicle exit assist, parking assistance, a rear or surround-view camera, a rear cross-traffic alert for the blind spot monitor, traffic jam assist, active lane assist, advanced full and side airbags and a comprehensive selection of other assistive, passive and functioning equipment. Some of the equipment included or available in the RDX includes airbags, tire pressure monitoring, a maintenance reminder, a lane departure warning, auto high beams, and other items.
