The 2018 RDX looks and feels like a top-notch SUV, but it’s one of the most accessibly-priced options in its class at a starting MSRP of $36,000.* Its Audi counterpart costs at least $41,500 to start driving, and the price goes up significantly on higher trims.


There is plenty of power at your disposal in the RDX thanks to the 3.5L V6 engine that comes standard. It is able to put out 279 hp and gives this larger vehicle a surprisingly sporty feel, while the 2018 Q5 is under-powered by comparison because it relies on a 2.0L four-cylinder that generates just 252 hp.

The standard version of the 2018 RDX comes with stylish LED headlights that do a superior job of illuminating the roads of Hartford. It also has a power moonroof perfect for sunny days, heated front seats ideal for chilly days, and satellite radio to extend your listening options. You will have to pay extra to get these same features in the standard version of the Q5, raising the overall price even further.


People who drive the RDX will have complete confidence thanks to a powertrain warranty that lasts for 72 months or 70,000 miles. That means if anything unexpectedly goes wrong, the hassle and expense are covered by the automaker. The powertrain that comes with the Q5 is a lot more limited, lasting just 48 months or 50,000 miles.
