Audi Q5
2018
Audi Q5 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Premium Plus 4-door SUV AWD Sequential

The redesigned Q5 gets may not look different but it brings more refinement, high tech, and a list of standard active safety features such as forward-collision warning with automatic braking. The new Q is also available with Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which lets you expand the cluster between the instrument panel's large gauges into a larger color screen that can display audio, phone, navigation, and travel information. The standard audio system includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Like the A4, the Q5 is powered by an updated 252-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard. Available advanced safety features include blind-spot monitoring, rear-collision warning, and lane-keep assist.

Audi Q5 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 2.0T 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

The Q5 is nearly as fun and as rewarding to drive as a sports sedan. The ride is steady and composed and the cabin is quiet. Audi's turbocharged four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic racked up 21 mpg overall in our tests. Though the four-cylinder delivers plenty of performance, it is louder and less refined than the 3.0-liter, supercharged V6, which is a real treat but bumps up the price considerably. The cabin is elegantly modern, with very supportive seats, but rear-seat and cargo space are modest. The infotainment system takes some getting used to, but ultimately proves logical with familiarity. A sportier 354-hp SQ5 and a hybrid are available. A redesigned Q5 based on the new A4 is coming next spring.

Audi Q5 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Hybrid

The Q5 hits its target as a compact, luxurious and sporty SUV spot on. Handling is agile and sporty, among the best for an SUV. The ride is steady and supple and the cabin is quiet. Early examples had the 3.2-liter V6 as the mainstream engine. It provides generous power and returns 19 mpg overall. In 2011 and later examples you're most likely to find a 2.0-liter turbo four which is less refined than the V6 but still punchy. With the eight speed automatic, this combination returned a commendable 21 mpg overall in our tests. The beautifully furnished interior benefits from supportive seats, but rear legroom and cargo space are rather modest. The MMI infotainment system takes some getting used to, but ultimately proves logical over time.
