2021 Acura RDX vs 2021 Audi Q5

Serving Ridgeland, MS

You have substantial expectations for your new luxury crossover SUV, so your attention has landed on the Acura and Audi lines. The 2021 Acura RDX is a compact crossover that starts off the automaker’s line with a bang. It is comparable to the Audi Q5, which is also a compact model. Now, let’s take a look at their differences.


The appeal of the 2021 RDX is undeniable from a first glimpse at its stunning façade. It shows off a distinctive character with a luxurious edge thanks to its chrome-outlined grille and bejeweled LED headlights. Its crisp accents run over the fenders and down the sides. The 2021 Audi Q5 has relatively smooth surfaces with a tall cabin and a large grille that covers most of the front end. The primary definition is a thick personality line that becomes more pronounced as it carries over the side doors.


The RDX’s interior is both modern and refined thanks to its beautiful color options and premium materials. Its many technologies and features include a panoramic moonroof, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a wireless hotspot, a touchpad interface, an ELS Studio 3 sound system, and other gear. The 2021 Audi Q5’s interior has a classic design with linear elements carrying across the center stack. Its features include a traditional gear shifter with a cubical knob, heated seats, and a floating display screen for the smart app technologies.


AcuraWatch™ assistive technologies are standard in all 2021 RDX models. These features are adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, collision mitigation braking, lane-keep assist, and others. The 2021 Audi Q5, on the other hand, shows off substantial variation in included or available assistive technologies across the trim line. The possibilities include parking assistance, traffic jam assistance, a rearview camera, and more.

At Acura of Jackson, we want each customer to feel great about their vehicle selection, and we are happy to show off the RDX for 2021 in full detail. Contact our team today to learn more about this beautiful crossover.
