2016 Lexus GX 460 vs. 2016 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

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

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). The Lexus GX 460 is somewhat more expensive than the Audi Q5. 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 Lexus GX 460 and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GX 460 is about the same width as the Audi Q5. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GX 460, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lexus GX 460 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Audi Q5.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q5 for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus GX 460 has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Audi Q5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus GX 460 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q5.
