The Audi Q5 is one of the very best SUVs you can buy. It's more comfortable and refined than the BMW X3 and handles far more tidily than the Volvo XC60. The 2.0-litre diesel engine (badged 40 TDI) makes most sense, as does entry level Sport trim – although we would recommend adding one or two options.read the full model review

Engine:40 TDI Quattro
While not super-quick in terms of outright pace, this 187bhp diesel is flexible enough to deliver strong real-world pace. That means there’s no need to rev it hard to keep up with traffic.
