2020 Acura RDX Vs. 2020 Audi Q5: How Do They Compare?
The Acura RDX and Audi Q5 both offer seating for five in a reasonably sporty and luxurious package. The Q5 may be a more appealing choice for buyers looking for a bit more luxury in the cabin, but the RDX is something of a bargain by comparison.
Should I Buy the 2020 Acura RDX?
Compact SUV buyers looking for a reasonable level of luxury and not concerned about the lack of a prestigious European nameplate would do well to consider the RDX. While perhaps not quite as well appointed as some competitors, the RDX is more moderately priced. Before buying, be sure to spend some quality time with the SUV’s touchpad multimedia controller to see whether you like it.
