    Audi Q5 Road Test

    The Q5 is one of the better choices among luxury compact SUV. It is comfortable, agile, and very well finished inside. Fuel economy is respectable for the class. It packs a lot of high-tech features and a variety of standard advanced safety features. 

    The standard 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine is responsive. Note that it's available with two versions; a 201 horsepower or a more powerful 261 hp version of that engine. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission plays a supporting role. We measured the 0-60 mph acceleration in a scant 6.8 seconds when we originally tested it with its 248 hp engine. And, it managed a decent 24 mpg overall, but on premium fuel.

    The engine is smooth and energetic in normal driving, emitting a polished hum when pressed hard. Shifting is quick, smooth and direct, but the Q5 can exhibit a slight delay from a rolling stop.

    Best Version to Get
    The Premium Plus version strikes the right balance, since it comes with panoramic sunroof, front heated seats with memory, full LED headlights and front and rear parking sensors.
