Side-By-Side Comparison of the 2021 Audi Q5 vs. the Competition

With many SUV and crossover options crowding the streets around Mount Vernon, WA and Sedro-Woolley, WA these days, it can be a challenge finding the right fit for your needs. But if you have distinct taste and only the highest quality materials and engineering will do, the team at Audi Bellingham has the perfect solution for you. The 2021 Audi Q5.

A five-passenger SUV that's currently in its second generation, the Q5 is a crossover for drivers who appreciate elegance and luxury. If you need a little more information before choosing your perfect SUV fit, read on and see some of the ways our Q5 model comes out ahead of the competing SUV options from Lexus and BMW.

The Audi Q5 vs. the BMW X3

  • Power and performance. For 2021, the Audi Q5 gets a nice refresh that includes an added boost of power. Every model now gets 13 more horsepower than the previous version, for a total of 261 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. This change makes the 2021 Audi Q5 an exciting option for Anacortes, WA and Lynden, WA drivers, and it also means the base Q5 has more power than the standard 248 horsepower the BMW X3 starts with.
  • Standard all-wheel drive. When Bellingham, WA roads get slick or wet, all-wheel drive can offer incredible peace of mind. With the Audi Q5, drivers can expect this peace of mind standard, as every model across the lineup has it. But the BMW X3 doesn't have all-wheel drive standard. It starts with rear-wheel drive and you'll have to move up trims or add on options to get AWD.
  • Luxury. The Audi Q5 impresses with its range of high-end, world-class amenities and creature comforts as well. Look for standard leather upholstery, heated seats, and more. But the BMW X3 starts with a faux leather upholstery and higher amenities, including heated seats, aren't standard until the top-tier trim, although they are available at added cost as options for earlier trims.

The Audi Q5 vs. the Lexus RX 350

  • Cargo space. Whether you're heading out of town for a long road trip or loading up on groceries, the Audi Q5 is there to help you carry more of the cargo you need. The Q5 has a rear cargo hold that can accommodate up to 25.8 cubic feet, which is a greater amount than the Lexus RX 350, which accommodates just 16 cubic feet.
  • Standard amenities. Audi always places a priority on its drivers' comfort and the Q5 is proof. Regardless of which Q5 model you go for, you can expect such premium amenities as leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-operated liftgate, and more as standard equipment. But the Lexus RX 350 doesn't provide these features as standard and, instead, has them available as add-on options.
  • Fuel economy. Take your SUV further every time you fill up with the Audi Q3. It earns a better fuel range and EPA efficiency rating than the Lexus RX 350. Our Q5 is rated for 23 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined. Meanwhile, the Lexus model is rated for 20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 23 combined. Plus, the Q5 goes up to 426 miles in the city per fill up, while the Lexus averages just 384 city miles per tank of gas.
