What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi Q5 4x4?
The BMW X3 is an obvious rival to the Q5, and we advise opting for the later shape model built from 2010 onwards, which is a significantly better car than the original. With lots of space and a great ride and handling balance, it is arguably the pick of the premium SUVs.
The Volvo XC60 is another strong contender, with its emphasis on comfort over sporty handling, and a reliably good safety rating.
And if you’re considering a nearly-new Q5, the recently launched Mercedes-Benz GLC is also a compelling rival thanks to its excellent build quality and comfort-focused suspension set-up.
