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). Whether you pick the Audi SQ5 or the Lexus GX 460, it's going to cost you about the same.

Handling

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

Utility
