2018 Audi Q5 Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The new Q5's subtle redesign barely hints at the many improvements made compared with its previous generation. While the size and shape of this compact luxury SUV remain, underneath the evolutionary bodywork is a new platform. With the redesign comes a better ride, along with more space and power, yet fuel economy has also improved.

"Have an SQ5, which handles wonderfully. Great acceleration, smooth and comfortable ride. HATE the fact that the ignition turns the engine off when the vehicle comes to a stop. Have to turn this off manually every time I start the vehicle."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Audi Q5)

"The acceleration and engine responsiveness are outstanding! The Audi All-Wheel Drive Quattro innovation is second to none! This, alone, could justify the cost of any Audi. The transition through the gears is so smooth, it feels effortless! My Audi Q5 is rated at 24mpg, I am consistently documenting 32mpg, my last tank was 33mpg! (Disclaimer: I have only used Shell V-Power 93-Octane fuel in this vehicle.) The turn-radius and nimbleness rival most sedans. The All-Wheel Drive System is “Best in Class,‿ and a must for winter weather and road trips."

"Excellent handling overall, very responsive steering, excellent acceleration at all speeds, very good and responsive braking. Steering wheel is somewhat oval shaped (not round), which means that the most comfortable grip requires hands to be held at a certain angle - good for serious driving, but not quite as comfortable for just holding the wheel when on an straight and not busy interstate. Overall, driving is excellent!"

"The acceleration of the Q5 is greater than I expected. In September we will put about 1500 miles on the SUV driving to CA and back to AZ. It will be the first long trip for the SUV. The handling is not as good as the Golf R, but it is adequate for an SUV. I think Audi could have done a better job of integrating 4-wheel drive with the Q5."

"Exceptional acceleration is a big advantage in driving the high altitude, steep hills on the two lane roads of our rural Colorado. Passing slow moving trucks and RV's is no longer a white-knuckle experience. Handling on twisting mountain roads is exceptional for a compact SUV, and easily adjustable from highway to modest off-road conditions with the Audi variable "Drive Select" options - a very well executed feature."

Its these reasons I bought vehicle. Once moving SUV is very quick. Necessary when passing Big Rig Trucks on single lane roads out West. In bad weather also very stable...tho some of that depends on your tires....."

David G., ON (2018 Audi Q5)

"The acceleration can be a real problem in the Audi Q5. When you are moving at slow speed and need to accelerate quickly to pull into traffic there is a significant lag before the turbo kicks in. It actually feels like the car chokes and slows down before it then kicks you into your seat with almost too much acceleration. I think the car is too heavy for the 2.0T engine."

"The Audi Q5 would have a nearly perfect ride, if their seats were even close to the comfort of the Lincoln MKC/MLX. Never before have I purchased after-market seat cushions to provide additional padding and support. The Audi sedans have more of a cockpit structure to the seats, in which you are padded and nestled. Sadly, the Q5 lacks this."

The width and length need to be wider and longer respectively. As for noise, vehicle is very quiet on road..Probably due to double pane glass in front windows.(Prestige model) In about 4 1/2 months of owning,I have driven about 11,000 miles...a good test I think."

"last vehicle had severe road noise. because I use hearing aids, the ride was not enjoyably. Could hardly hear conversations or music. Long distance rides are less fatiguing."

"Beware of the particular new luxury car family owned dealership in Ct. that I purchased my Q 5 from. Their marketing says "Driven by Trust". I'm convinced that the "new" car I paid almost $50,000 for just three weeks ago does NOT qualify as "new". I have documented about six reasons I believe the car should not qualify as "new"! I've had one meeting with them and will be having more. I would be very willing to talk (phone or in person) with a CR Survey employee regarding my purchase experience since I bought the car ..6/29/2018. A couple good points but more very serious bad points. Carl Welshman 860-933-2810 Danielson, Connecticut resident."

"Fantastic deal at dealer- COSTCO 1400.00 under invoice, plus 500.00 off first responder discount on a car that already is competitively priced"

Peter Z., CA (2018 Audi Q5)

"It's a joy to drive once you get used to all the alert sounds and understand what they mean. I believe I received a good value but I wish the owners manual were easier to understand as well as the navigation system. I know I got a lot for my money but still can't figure out how to use some functions"

"Amazing vehicle. Excellent gas mileage for a SUV."

"Vehicles interior and exterior are beautiful, quality crafted … very solidly constructed. Very well thought out, blinds on the rear windows, huge sunroof with a controllable canopy. The vehicles performance and handling are exceptional. Basically, in an electronic safety bubble, side assist, autobraking front and rear to avoid collisions, adaptive cruise control, hands free calling, messaging. Too many features to list … my personal favorites are the Google maps and heads up display, especially when using navigation feature."

"The quality, comfort, reliability, functionality, and good looks of the Q5 really cannot be beat at this price point."

James K., PA (2018 Audi Q5)

"We previously drove Mercedes SUVs for over a decade, but we switched to Audi this year. The Audi was a more solid vehicle, had better styling, and was much more exciting to drive, all for a significantly lower lease cost than the Mercedes."

Daniel C., IL (2018 Audi Q5)

"We drive over the Cascades in the winter and appreciate the comfort, handling and safety the Audi offers."

N- J V., OR (2018 Audi Q5)

"Based on competing models, Audi Is the best value in terms of quality, features, styling, etc"

R G., CA (2018 Audi Q5)

"Based on what I read in Audi literature and discussions with sales, I thought the MMI was giving me google maps and navigation. It turns out that the google maps are only google earth renderings—the regular maps you navigate from aren’t google. Most disturbing though is that the traffic is t google either—it’s some relic traffic from years ago and, in practice, it’s terrible. After using it for two weeks and getting into multiple traffic jams google and Apple maps spotted, I abandoned it altogether. That great map in the drivers console is useless. If I’d known, I wouldn’t have bought the car."

George R., NY (2018 Audi Q5)

"Best price point with standard features that you pay extra for in the same segment"

"Great solid feel and excellent safety technology. There are less expensive alternatives that are almost as good"

Anonymous, VA (2018 Audi Q5)

"I don't think the vehicle is worth the price we paid- just plain overpriced! I also don't think their customer service area amenities are in a par with other luxury cars of the same class."
