  • All of the features that you deserve will cost you more money on the RX 350 than they will on the Q5 at every trim level, making us question what it is that they're charging extra for.

Features

  • Audi offers the MMI all-in-touch with handwriting-recognition technology in the Q5, but the RX 350 only offers a similar feature as part of a separate package.
  • The Q5 offers Wi-Fi hotspot, 4G LTE connectivity, and a six-month trial of Audi connect PRIME, but the RX 350 doesn't have these options available.

  • Even without all the bells and whistles the RX 350 will cost you more than the Audi Q5 will for the features that it offers standard, causing us to question once again why that is.
