The style and performance of the Audi brand are well-known, but how does it match up against its fellow luxury brand, Acura? In this car comparison, shoppers across Fort Worth, Arlington, and Grand Prairie, TX, will have a front-row seat to this highly anticipated 2022 Audi Q5 vs. Acura RDX matchup. 

We'll delve into cabin comfort and safety features as we consider these two luxury SUVs. Discover which one is best equipped for your drives, courtesy of our team at Audi Fort Worth!

Audi Q5 vs Acura RDX: Interior

The 2022 Audi Q5 and Acura RDX make room for up to five passengers to stretch out and relax inside the cabin. Both sport 38 inches of rear legroom, providing a comfortable space for second-row passengers.

Attractive leather elevates the style, too, but only the Audi Q5 has standard leather seats. In the Acura RDX, you'll need to upgrade beyond standard imitation leather to get the real thing. The leather in the Audi SUV looks especially warm in Atlas Beige.

The Audi Q5 also offers a wider range of decorative inlays. That includes the standard Brown Walnut Wood inlay and the available Birch Wood Natural Gray Brown inlay. Both look stately and refined.

2022 Q5 vs RDX: Safety Ratings

The 2022 Audi Q5 and Acura RDX excel when it comes to safety ratings. The 2022 Q5 received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the highest honor awarded for NHTSA crash testing. The Audi Q5 also earned a perfect 5-Star Safety Rating for both frontal and side crash tests.

Both SUVs can help you avoid accidents in the first place with advanced driver-assistive suites. With an available array of intelligent features, you can drive with more awareness. In the Q5, enjoy the following systems:

  • Standard Audi active lane assist
  • Standard Audi side assist
  • Available Audi adaptive cruise control with Traffic jam assist

The Audi Q5 even offers optional Park assist. This can provide steering guidance to make parallel parking easier and safer. The Acura RDX offers available Front & Rear Parking Sensors but doesn't have any features to help steer you into open parking spots.

Audi Q5 vs RDX: Performance

The best excursions put you at ease with incomparable efficiency. The 2022 Q5 and RDX are fuel-sipping masters at their best. However, only the Audi offers a hybrid version. The Q5 plug-in hybrid will help you keep your drive eco-friendly in a way the gas-powered RDX can't quite match.

In addition to its impressive MPG, the Audi Q5 plug-in hybrid packs a more potent punch. A 2.0L 55 TFSI® 4-cylinder engine works with an electric motor to generate up to 362 horsepower! While the RDX also runs on a 2.0L 4-cylinder, it tops out at just 272 horsepower. 

The cherry on top of the Audi Q5's powertrain? It comes with standard quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology. You'll need to upgrade for an all-wheel drive system in the RDX.

Is the Audi Q5 or Acura RDX a Better Buy?

At Audi Fort Worth, we want to help drivers get behind the wheel of the best luxury SUV for them. We hope that our comparison of the 2022 Audi Q5 and Acura RDX is useful as you shop and drive around Fort Worth, Arlington, and Grand Prairie, Texas.

While both vehicles are quite impressive, the 2022 Q5 stands out for its luxurious interior and safety features. Don't forget its highly efficient plug-in hybrid configuration, too! If those qualities appeal to you, schedule a test drive at our dealership.
