Fuel Economy: A5 vs RC

Here's what the 2018 Audi A5 is working with at the gas pump: 24 MPG in the city, 33 MPG on the highway, and 27 combined MPG.1 That's with its standard 2.0L TFSI® engine.

On the other hand, let's see what's going on with the 2018 Lexus RC at the gas pump: just 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway, according to the website 2018releasedate.com. Definitely not as remarkable as the Audi A5.

Right off the bat, it seems like the 2018 A5 is crushing its competition, the 2018 RC. That's quite obvious!

Safety: Audi vs Lexus

Next, we'll move onto safety. Perhaps the Lexus RC can compete with the Audi A5 in this category? Hmm…

We'll list off a few of the 2018 Audi A5's intelligent safety features: parking system plus, Audi pre sense® basic, Audi pre sense® city, Audi pre sense® rear, vehicle exit assist, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop & go, traffic sign recognition, Audi active lane assist, turn assist, and more!

The 2018 Lexus? While it has a few of its own smart safety systems, we're simply not as impressed.

Unparalleled Luxury

We doubt that you've ever seen a car that's as confidently luxurious as the 2018 Audi A5, let alone stepped inside of one; not even the 2017 Audi A5 can compare. What's so great about it? Well… 

  • Singleframe® grille (exterior)
  • S line® exterior appearance (exterior)
  • Full LED headlights (exterior)
  • Ambient LED lighting (interior)
  • Leather seating surfaces (interior)
  • Wraparound dashboard (interior)
  • And much, much more!

We're almost certain that you've seen plenty of cars that are comparable to the 2018 Lexus RC, in terms of luxury. It really doesn't seem that different from the 2017 Lexus RC, if we're being honest. Trust us.
