Audi Q5 Overview

Stylish and sporty, 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, if rather firm, ride. Its punchy turbocharged four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic racked up a commendable 21 mpg overall. The four-cylinder got a modest horsepower boost for 2014 but we far prefer the 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 upgrade. A hybrid is also available. The cabin is plush and quiet, with very comfortable seats, but rear-seat and cargo space are modest. A 3.0-liter V6 diesel and an SQ5 with a 354-hp turbo V6 are new. Reliability of the 2.0T version has been average, the V6 is above average.
