2014 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Lexus GX 460 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Lexus GX 460. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Lexus GX 460.

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus GX 460, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GX 460. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q5 and the Lexus GX 460 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Lexus GX 460. The Audi Q5 is slightly shorter than the Lexus GX 460, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Lexus GX 460, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q5 has a little less horsepower than the Lexus GX 460.

Utility
The Audi Q5 has less seating than the Lexus GX 460, making the Lexus GX 460 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the Lexus GX 460, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GX 460.
