4 out of 5 stars

For The Audi Q5 is desirable, has strong diesel engines and a decent boot

Against The Q5 is let down a firm ride and shortage of rear legroom

Verdict The Audi Q5 is a desirable and well equipped SUV

Go for… 2.0TDI SE

Audi Q5 4x4
  • 1. The Audi Q5 is comfortable, refined and spacious, and a serious alternative to rivals from BMW and Land Rover
  • 2. The Audi’s sharp handling means it’s enjoyable to drive, but the trade-off is a rather firm ride. The is further exaggerated by the larger alloys fitted to some models.
  • 3. The Audi’s fit and finish is first rate, and there’s hardly any wind-, road- or engine noise.
  • 4. As with most SUVs, you should consider the diesel models ahead of the petrol versions
  • 5. Early diesel models can experience high oil consumption; using as much as one litre every 2000 miles
