Audi Q5 Against the Competition

The Audi Q5 is among the models in the luxury crossover segment that have gained popularity in recent years. Balancing and blending comfort with performance and practicality, the Q5 lets drivers have the style and features they want with the space and convenience they need.

While the Q5 offers a strong combination of features, styling, and capability, it's certainly not the only luxury crossover shoppers near Ames, Ankeny, Waukee, and Marshalltown will consider. Many will also turn their attention to the Lexus RX350. It's not hard to see why -- the Q5 and RX350 share a common focus on engaging performance, upscale comfort, refined style, and everyday practicality. To help Des Moines drivers make the right choice, we've provided a brief comparison between the two below:
