Audi Q5 Overview

The Q5 is one of the better compact luxury SUVs. It's almost as much fun to drive as a sports sedan, with a steady and composed but rather firm ride. Its punchy, turbocharged four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic racked up a commendable 21-mpg overall in our tests. Though the four-cylinder delivers plenty of performance, we think the 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 is a real treat. The cabin is plush and quiet, with very supportive seats, but rear-seat and cargo space are modest. A 3.0-liter V6 diesel, 354-hp SQ5 performance version, and a hybrid are available. Reliability of the 2.0T version has been average, and the V6 and diesel versions were above average.
