Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi SQ5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus GX 460. The Audi SQ5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience

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).

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi SQ5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus GX 460.
