The 2019 Audi Q5 and the 2019 Lexus RX 350 are both highly versatile SUVs. They offer several different convenient and safety features that give them a unique distinction over other SUV in their class.
With the new Audi Q5 already starting to grow in popularity, many consumers are wondering just what makes this crossover different from all of the others. In order to better illustrate just how versatile this vehicle is, we have compared it to another very popular SUV: the 2019 Lexus RX 350.
The Audi Q5’s seats are elegantly covered with a soft and comfortable fabric. The driver and front seat passenger have 8-point adjustable seats that they can adjust to ensure that they are comfortable on long trips. The Audi corporation has taken the comfort of all of its passengers into account when they designed the new Q5. The rear bench seats are fully reclinable and a centre console folds down to produce two cup holders for the back passengers. The back seats also fold down in a 40/20/40 split to give you the maximum amount of cargo space.
The Lexus RX 350 offers about the same amount of interior space as the Q5 does, however, it does come with an optional third-row seat that cuts down on the interior cargo space.
Both of these vehicles have a plethora of standard safety features that help to keep both the driver and passengers safe and gives them an added peace of mind. The Q5 comes standard with a reverse camera, auto-dimming anti-glare review mirror, Audi Side Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Exit Warning System, and Cruise Control.
The Lexus RX 350 comes with the Lexus Safety System, which includes Lane Departure Alert, Cruise Control, and Automatic high beams.

When it comes to power and fuel efficiency, the Q5 and the RX 350 are about even. The RX 350 has slightly more horsepower but the Q5 has a sportier engine that produces more torque and is capable of towing larger loads.
