A premium SUV should make you feel good and that’s exactly what the Audi Q5 does. With its stunning, well-made interior, it feels a cut above the competition. Behind the wheel, this is a car where comfort and refinement has been prioritised, and the Q5 is nothing short of superb in those areas – eating up the miles, and making it ideal for cross-country journeys, loaded up to the roof with holiday gear.

Based on Audi’s mid-size platform (known as MLB), the Q5 was designed from the outset to occupy that middle ground in its SUV range. Ideal for those that have outgrown a smaller hatchback or SUV, but don’t need a full seven-seater, this Audi is a practical and very family-friendly model.
Despite this latest second-generation Audi Q5 being larger in size than its predecessor, a clever use of lightweight materials managed to shave up to an impressive 90kg off the weight. Offered with a range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines under the bonnet, the Q5 is designed to appeal to a wide audience.
The new Audi Q5 is a particularly smart-looking SUV, looking reassuringly rugged and bold, yet without ever being over-the-top. Those wanting the most ‘4x4’ styling should choose the Sport, which comes with more prominent underbody protection and black plastic cladding around the wheel arches and door sills. But if you’d prefer a sportier look, you’re well catered for with the S line and Black Edition.
With wheel sizes of up to 20 inches, the Q5 still offers a huge amount of street cred, while Audi offers a great selection of colours, with particular highlights being the bright shades District Green and Ultra Blue.
All new Audi Q5 models for sale come with a large 10.1-inch touchscreen included, which is brimmed with features, including Audi Connect navigation, as well as Amazon Alexa integration.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both included with the Wireless Audi Smartphone Interface, too. Audi’s superb 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit Plus is also included, which is a customisable digital instrument cluster that lets you display the information you want, meaning you can have it as minimalist as you like – in the simplest setting, it just displays the speed.
If you’re looking for as much technology as possible, though, you should find a Vorsprung Q5 for sale. This top-spec version is absolutely laden with the latest features, such as massaging seats and a head-up display.
Engines & Performance
Audi offers a choice of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid power (known as the TFSI e) on the Q5. The firm’s quattro all-wheel-drive system is also standard across the line-up, as is an eight-speed S tronic automatic gearbox, which is impressive given the Audi Q5’s price, which starts from £46,650.
The current Audi Q5 range has also been slimmed down, with just one petrol and one diesel on offer to make the choice easier.
Beginning with the diesel, this model is classed as the 40 TDI and uses a 201bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, which puts out 201bhp and 400Nm of torque.
If you’d prefer petrol, this also offers more power – though the plug-in hybrid Q5 and sporty SQ5 offer more power still. Badged as the 45 TFSI, it serves up 262bhp and 370Nm of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-litre TFSI unit.
If you opt for the 262bhp petrol model, this is the quickest option, with the sprint to 60mph taking 5.9 seconds* and it’s able to keep going to a top speed of 149mph*. It’s not as efficient as the diesel, however, with the 45 TFSI managing a claimed fuel consumption figure of between 31.7 and 33.6 mpg*, while CO2 emissions stand at between 190 and 202g/km*.
So if efficiency is a priority, the 40 TDI has you covered, with Audi claiming between 42.2 and 44.8mpg*, while CO2 emissions vary between 164 and 175g/km*. It doesn’t fare badly for performance either, with this diesel engine able to take the Q5 from 0-60mph in 7.4 seconds*, and on to a top speed of 137mph*.
All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and equivalent electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, vehicle load (and, for battery electric vehicles, the starting charge of the battery).
