I traded-in a 2011Q5 for this vehicle. This is an okay car but so far I am not in love with it; it sounds and rides like a slightly upgraded Honda.
About $4000 less than comparably equipped Q5-good standard features and value priced
Comfortable driver's seat
Good back seat leg room
Good cargo layout - space not wasted
Quiet engine with good power and pickup
Good storage in front cabin
Q5 feels more solid and is more fun to drive
RDX has choppy rear suspension
Interior materials are okay but not what you might expect in a luxury vehicle
Noticeable road noise, especially on uneven pavement
Price, sound system, engine power, accurate steering, rear leg room, good cargo layout, heated seats
Add power lift gate, make fog lights standard, add noise dampening, add storage under cargo area, improve rear suspension
