The 2021 Acura lineup comes with an additional trim level, providing slightly more customization over the Audi Q5, and with it a lower starting price. Each Acura RDX package comes with Super Handling AWD™ standard, while the Q5 has an AWD mild hybrid. However, the Audi hybrid package comes with a much larger starting price point.

    • Standard Package (SH-AWD®): $44,390 MSRP*
    • Technology Package (SH-AWD®): $47,690 MSRP*
    • A-Spec Package (SH-AWD®): $51,190 MSRP*

Acura RDX vs. Audi Q5: Performance

A strong performance is the heart of every SUV, and when you look at the RDX vs. Q5, you’ll see just how close these two vehicles are. Both feature a standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, but the RDX is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission while the Q5 has a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This gives the Acura just a little more power and torque than the Q5, 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque vs. 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, for the roads of Fort McMurray.

Acura RDX vs. Audi Q5: Interior Dimensions and Technology

Make the most out of your SUV with plenty of interior space for passengers and cargo. Like many SUVs, you can enjoy five-passenger seating, but the RDX comes with additional cargo space. There is plenty of room for groceries, luggage, work materials, or sports gear in the Acura RDX’s spacious 2260 (L) cargo space. Compared to the still nice, but not nearly as roomy 1710 (L) of cargo space Audi Q5, meaning you’ll likely need to get creative about your packing with the Q5. On top of the extra legroom, the RDX has interior technology you don’t find in the Audi Q5 such as:

  • Noise cancellation tech
  • Acura/ELS Studio 3D® premium audio system
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Standard front heated seats
  • True Touchpad Interface™
  • Remote vehicle starter
