There’s no denying the appeal of a luxury midsize SUV, given their abundance of power, sleek style, and advanced amenities. But, which model is for you?

At Lexus of Jacksonville, we’re comparing the Lexus RX 350 and the Audi Q5 so you can see all the areas where our Lexus SUV shines.   

Premium Performance  

The Lexus RX 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates up to 295 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. There is also a hybrid powertrain option that generates up to 308 horsepower.

By contrast, the Audi Q5 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It can’t quite keep up with the Lexus RX 350, producing just 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.  

Spacious Cabin 

While both midsize cabins are fairly similarly sized, you’ll find extra passenger space in the Lexus RX 350. You can opt to configure the cabin for five, six, or seven passengers. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, only seats up to five passengers.

You’ll also find more space to stretch out in the Lexus RX 350. It delivers extra head and shoulder room, as well as over three extra inches of front legroom.  


The 2022 Lexus RX 350 is one of the most advanced Lexus models yet. It offers an expansive 12.3-inch touchscreen, while the touchscreen in the Audi Q5 only measures 10.1 inches.

Our Lexus SUV is also packed with innovative technology and advanced safety features that don’t come standard in the Audi Q5, including:

  • Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert 
  • Road sign assist 
  • Adaptive cruise control 
  • Intelligent high beams 
  • Amazon Alexa integration
