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

Edition 1 trim adds 20in wheels, bespoke styling touches and Nappa leather seats. Cheaper S line makes more sense, though.

Ultimately a fair bit faster than the 40 TDI diesel, but needs revving harder to get the best from it. Your only choice at the moment if you want a petrol.
