The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Every version of the Audi Q5 gets a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a height and reach-adjustable steering wheel. The seat keeps you securely in place through corners (especially in S line models, which have heavily bolstered front seats that pin you in place) and has four-way electrically adjustable lumbar support as standard, along with extendable under-thigh support. All these features make it easy to fine-tune your driving position.

Eight-way electrically adjustable seats are standard on Edition 1 trim, with memory settings reserved for Vorsprung models. Neither is available as an option on the other trims.

As with many modern cars, the Q5’s rear pillars are pretty chunky, but with front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera standard on all models, this doesn’t present too much of an issue. Vorspung trim adds a 360-degree bird's eye view camera to further alleviate any parking worries.

Sat nav and infotainment

All Q5s get a 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system with built-in sat-nav. Its graphics are sharp and it responds quickly to prods and swipes.

Unfortunately, whereas previous Q5s gave you a well-designed rotary controller interface between the front seats to operate the system (much like the one in the BMW X3), the latest model is touchscreen-only. As a result, the infotainment can be quite distracting to use when you're driving.
