2015 Audi Q5 Chicago Naperville

Smart and seductive. These are two of the chief takeaways from the automotive industry’s most significant additions to the luxury crossover SUV segment, the 2015 Acura RDX and the 2015 Audi Q5. Each boasts a wealth of innovative technology features and exquisite interior styling, with refinement in both models that makes choosing between them nearly impossible. So how do we dare select one over the other?

The key distinctions between the two are mostly related to powertrain options and interior space, where the RDX is the clear leader in cargo volume while the Audi Q5 offers three engaging engine options (in addition to the now-available hybrid option). And, while the RDX is offered for a slightly lower sticker price, the fuel economy and versatility of the Q5 are difficult to ignore. While choosing between the 2015 Acura RDX and the 2015 Audi Q5 may be a tough choice to make, perhaps the greatest takeaway of all is that, between these two luxury models, there is no wrong choice.
