Alternatives

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.

Overview

The Audi Q5 offers strong performance, low running costs and a decent amount of space, but watch out for expensive repair bills

  • Sharp handling
  • Good performance
  • Classy interior
  • Firm ride
  • Potentially expensive repairs
  • Not cheap to buy
