Come to us with deep pockets and a penchant for huge SUVs and we’ll point you in the direction of the brilliant Audi Q7. But the reality is that not everyone wants a five-metre-long behemoth that’s cumbersome to park and costs a small fortune to buy. So what if you could enjoy all of the Q7’s strengths in a cheaper and more compact package?

Well, that’s exactly what many will be hoping for from the Audi Q5. It’s much cheaper to buy than its bigger brother, costs suitably less to run and yet is still a very practical family car, despite its smaller footprint and lower driving position.

Read on over the next few pages and we’ll give you the full lowdown on how the Q5 compares with its key rivals in the large SUV class, such as the BMW X3, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Mercedes GLC. We’ll also tell you which engines and trims make the most sense.

And if you're thinking of buying a Q5, make sure you check out our latest deals before parting with any cash. You might be surprised by how much you can save.
