Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 e offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lexus RX 350, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 e and the Lexus RX 350.

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 Audi Q5 e is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus RX 350. 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 e and the Lexus RX 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 e is about the same width as the Lexus RX 350. The Audi Q5 e is slightly shorter than the Lexus RX 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q5 e and the Lexus RX 350 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi Q5 e has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus RX 350, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q5 e has a little less horsepower than the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 e and the Lexus RX 350. The Audi Q5 e has less cargo space than the Lexus RX 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 e comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus RX 350.
