Select a category below to learn more about how the 2022 Audi Q5 compares to the 2021 Acura RDX.
INTERIOR
Audi Q5

The 2022 Audi Q5 and Acura RDX make room for up to five passengers to stretch out and relax inside the cabin. Both sport roughly 38 inches of rear legroom, making every seat adult-friendly.

Sophistication on Four Wheels

Attractive leather elevates the style, too, but only the Audi Q5 has standard leather seats. In the Acura RDX, you'll need to upgrade beyond standard imitation leather to get the real thing. The leather in the Audi SUV looks especially warm in Atlas Beige.

The Audi Q5 also offers a wider range of decorative inlays. The Brown Walnut Wood brandishes visual contrasts in color, while the Birch Wood Natural Gray Brown looks stately and refined.

SAFETY
Audi Q5

The 2022 Audi Q5 and Acura RDX excel when it comes to safety ratings. Each has earned the 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)—the highest honor awarded for NHTSA crash testing. The Audi Q5 earned a perfect five stars on both frontal and side crash tests, while the Acura RDX won five stars for the side crash tests only.

Next-Generation Safety

Both SUVs help you avoid accidents in the first place with advanced driver-assistance suites. With an available array of intelligent features, you can drive with more awareness. In the Q5, enjoy the following features:

  • Standard Audi active lane assist
  • Standard Audi side assist
  • Available Audi adaptive cruise control

The Acura RDX has similar versions of many of the Q5's safety systems. However, it lacks an equivalent to Audi pre sense® basic, which will pretension the seatbelts and close all windows and sunroof when it senses an oncoming collision.

PERFORMANCE
Audi Q5

The best excursions put you at ease with incomparable efficiency. The 2022 Q5 and 2021 RDX are fuel-sipping masters at their best. However, only the Audi offers a hybrid version. The Q5 plug-in hybrid will help you keep your drive eco-friendly in a way the gas-powered RDX can't quite match.

Power Meets Efficiency

In addition to its impressive MPG, the Audi Q5 plug-in hybrid packs a more potent punch. A 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine works with an electric motor to generate up to 362 horsepower! While the RDX also runs on a 2.0L 4-cylinder, it tops out at just 272 horsepower. 

The cherry on top of the Audi Q5's powertrain? It comes with standard quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology. You'll need to upgrade for an all-wheel drive system in the RDX.
