Audi and Lexus both encapsulate the luxury driving experience. It can be difficult to distinguish what is different or unique about each one, but there are subtleties that ultimately matter when you make that final decision.

The team at Audi Denver has taken the time to highlight some of those subtle differences to help luxury car seekers in Parker, Castle Rock, and Denver, Colorado, get an idea of what's in store for each brand. Read on to learn more!

Performance and Technology

With its quattro® all-wheel drive system, Audi prioritizes customizable handling for each of its vehicles. Designed with unpredictable road conditions in mind, the all-wheel drive functionality kicks in when necessary and provides ample traction on slick roads. It continues to work in normal driving conditions for further stability on sharp turns.

While quattro® all-wheel drive comes standard on the Audi A4, you'll have to specifically choose AWD to have access to a similar feature on the comparable Lexus IS model.

In terms of technology, each brand has its proprietary app. With both, you can do the following:

  • Start your vehicle remotely
  • Schedule maintenance appointments
  • Make payments

However, the myAudi app offers slightly more. In addition to the above functions, you can get directions to where you parked your car in a lot and set location boundaries if someone else borrows it.

In addition, the myAudi app presents a subscription option for those seeking a more exclusive experience. There's a whole culture surrounding Audi, allowing you to immerse yourself in that experience with exclusive events and products.


In addition to advanced performance and technology features, both brands offer ample safety protection for drivers and passengers.

Standard on many Audi models is the Audi pre sense® city system. If there is an impending collision, the vehicle will tighten the seatbelts and initiate emergency braking if necessary. The vehicle will be sealed off and all windows and openings will be shut. In addition, there's Audi connect® CARE via the myAudi app, which allows you access to emergency help during a driving mishap or if your vehicle ever gets stolen.

Lexus offers its Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, which includes the following features

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Lane Tracing Assist
  • Intelligent High Beams
  • All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Road Sign Assist

Audi offers similar features through its available Advanced Driver Assistance Systems with a little more of a boost than Lexus. Drivers can enjoy the following available features for added safety:

  • Adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist
  • Audi side assist for blind spots
  • Night vision assistant that uses infrared
  • Top view camera to get a 360° view of the car

Luxury Is Waiting

When it comes to Audi vs. Lexus, both brands provide innovative technology and safety, and both are worthy of praise.

Audi, however, embodies a whole atmosphere of luxury with its exclusive, subscription-based services that might just be what luxury drivers are looking for. It also provides slightly more tech-forward features through its app, making drivers feel more at one with their cars. Plus, it also offers additional safety features for enhanced protection.
