Review

The Audi Q5 is a fine choice if you're after big, posh SUV but you 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 or pay extra for air suspension is you want a comfortable ride.

get the best price

Entry-level Sport trim gets you 18in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, part-leather seats (heated in the front) and cruise control. It's well worth a look but, if you can, we'd recommend upgrading to S line.

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.
