As Lexus rolls out the new 2015 NX 200t premium crossover, one of its main competitors and peers in the segment is the Audi Q5.
One difference buyers will be easily able to note between these vehicles, which will have very similar 2.0 liter turbo AWD drivetrains in their best-selling trims, is looks. Lexus will offer a visually more exciting option to the Q5 in a package that is almost identical in size.
Audi Q5 Looks Much Wider Than Lexus NX 200t
The comparison photos shown above were taken during the launch of the NX 200t by Lexus last week. There were no competitive models on hand, so Torque News sought out and found this Q5 for a rough comparison. As the photos show, the Audi Q5 looks wider than the 2015 NX 200t. Indeed it is, but not by as much as it looks. The body of the Audi Q5 is actually only 1.1 inch wider than the NX 200t. They have the same width and height (within a fraction of an inch).
