Q3 vs RAV4: Interior Luxury

2019 Audi Q3 Prestige SAudi and Toyota are both known for their high-quality cabin designs. While the 2019 Q3 and RAV4 have both undergone a major redesign for the current model year, only the Audi is a luxury SUV. When it comes to style and creature comforts, this gives the Q3 an edge.

It all starts with the ambiance. In the Audi SUV, you can set the tone for your adventures with available LED interior lighting. Choose from 30 vibrant shades and bathe your cabin in the full spectrum of colors. The RAV4 simply has no comparable feature.

The Toyota does offer some premium materials, from available leatherette seats to the soft-touch, well-stitched dashboard. However, it still can't compete with the real leather, reclining rear seats in the Audi.

2019 Q3 vs 2019 Rav4: Technology

2019 Audi  Q3 PrestigeWherever your excursions take you, you'll want to stay connected. The Audi Q3 and Toyota RAV4 make it easy with touchscreen infotainment systems that come standard with smartphone integration.

You'll find Apple CarPlay® standard in both, perfect for pairing your iPhone with the touchscreen. Access your messages, maps, music, and other favorite apps on the go. Android Auto™ is standard in the Q3 but lacking entirely in the RAV4, unfortunately.

The Q3 has another advantage over its Toyota counterpart: the Audi virtual cockpit. This available option is a fully digital instrument panel that can be customized to show your most important information. While the RAV4 offers quality gauges, it lacks an option for that sleek digital screen.

SUV Specifications: Engines

2019 Audi Q3Just how potent are the 2019 Q3 and RAV4? The 4-cylinder in the Toyota serves up 203 horsepower, an excellent output for daily driving. The Audi SUV feels a bit livelier, though, cranking out 228 horsepower from the incredibly peppy turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.

Both vehicles offer the stability and reassurance of all-wheel drive, though only the Audi has it standard. Its quattro® all-wheel drive system sends power to the wheels with the most traction for a more gripping adventure.
