Review

The Audi Q5 is a fine choice if you're after a big, posh SUV and don't need seven seats; it's smarter inside than a BMW X3 and better to drive than a XC60. Go for entry-level Sport trim if you want the most comfortable ride.

S line brings larger 19in alloy wheels, more aggressive bumpers, privacy glass and the fancier matrix headlights.

Assuming you’re willing to consider a diesel these days, the 40 TDI is a brilliant engine; it's effortlessly strong from low revs and the acceleration arrives smoothly and progressively as the revs rise.
