The Audi Q5 has the power and comfort but lacks in cargo space and comfort.
Handling Ranked 2019 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Technology Package better.
"The RDX has no road noise, and compared to the Audi Q5 corners better, rides smoother and has enough power to get you down the road to the kids soccer game or to the next town for a football game."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2019 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Technology Package better.
"Heading to the soccer field? The Acura RDX has more cargo space than the Audi Q5. With easier to put down back seats if needed. Hauling the lab, no problem there either. Compared to the Audi Q5, the RDX is wider and taller in the cargo area."

Nice but it should be at more than $54,000 and my wife thought the rear seat uncomfortable and there were only...
Power Ranked 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum better.
"The Pathfinder is a normally aspirated V6 and the Audi has a turbo 4 cylinder. For long term use the cubic inches will always be king. There is no lag on acceleration for the Pathfinder but the Audi has some lag on flooring it to pass."
Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum better.
"After 6 years the Pathfinder still looks smashing and the Audi is always chasing a new look."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum better.
"With the back seat down on Audi Q5 there is 53 cu.ft. space and with back 2 rows of seats down on Pathfinder there is 79.5 cubic feet of space. The difference is huge. Also the back two sets of seats fold flat so there is one large flat area the the Audi Q5 on is partly flat as the seat back goes up hill enough to not let dogs be comfortable."
Family Car Ranked 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum better.
"More and larger cupholders, many more usb outlets, 3 rows of seats, more comfortable seats at all positions, setbacks recline considerably more, regular gas and better gas mileage & better smoother ride quality."
