Our team at Audi Devon knows that when it comes to luxury brands, Audi and Lexus are two of the best in the game. You've probably seen your fair share of both vehicles in your travels through Devon and Malvern, but you may be wondering which will be a better fit for you!

To help you answer that question, our team has created this Audi vs. Lexus comparison. Let's jump in and see who has what it takes to come out on top!

Audi vs Lexus: Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) performs crash tests on a variety of vehicles each year to help reduce the losses from motor vehicle crashes. TOP SAFETY PICK+ is the highest award given. To achieve this designation a vehicle must receive Good ratings for all crash tests, Advanced or Superior ratings for crash prevention, and a Good headlight rating.

Both Audi and Lexus had three vehicles, including cars and SUVs that received the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. Plus, both brands give you the added peace of mind that comes with several advanced safety systems.

Behind the wheel of an Audi, however, you'll get the added protection of Audi pre sense® basic. When this system-which is standard on most Audi models-detects an imminent collision, it can prepare the vehicle by closing the windows, tightening the safety belts, and activating the hazard lights. Lexus does not offer a similar system.

Audi vs Lexus: Awards

Over the years, both Audi and Lexus have collected their fair share of awards. For example, both were named a Wards 10 Best User Experience award winner in 2019, which helped to cement their commitment to making life easy for their drivers.

Audi has an advantage over Lexus when it comes to Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards. The winners represent the ideal combination of quality, driving dynamics, dependability, and more! Audi had two vehicles receive the KBB Best Buy award, while Lexus only had one vehicle receive this award.

Further separating Audi from all luxury brands, including Lexus, is the 2019 World Luxury Car award. It was given to the Audi A7 at the New York International Auto Show!

Audi vs Lexus: Certified Pre-Owned

When it comes to certified pre-owned vehicles, both Audi and Lexus have comprehensive warranties that cover you for an unlimited number of miles! To give you even more peace of mind out on the road, both brands also come with roadside assistance programs!

You'll have even more confidence if you choose a certified pre-owned Audi. In order to be eligible for the program, an Audi must be five model years or newer and have less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. If you choose Lexus, on the other hand, the vehicle could be up to six years old and have up to 70,000 miles!

Finally, there's the inspection. To help ensure each component of a certified pre-owned Audi is in top-notch condition, each model must undergo a 300-point inspection. The certified pre-owned inspection for Lexus only checks 161 points!

Audi vs Lexus: We Have a Winner!

After reading this comparison, it's clear to see that Audi has the edge over Lexus when it comes to innovative safety features and awards. They also have a more comprehensive certified pre-owned program, which you can check out here at Audi Devon!
