Ownership cost

What used Audi Q5 4x4 will I get for my budget?

The Audi Q5 wears miles well, so it’s not uncommon to see examples offered for sale with 200,000 miles or more on the clock, for which you’ll pay as little as £6000. Realistically, however, you’ll want a car that costs closer to £8000 and has covered fewer than 100,000 miles.

The 2.0-litre TDI diesel was originally available with 141bhp or 168bhp, plus there was a 237bhp 3.0-litre V6. The 2012 facelift resulted in power outputs from the 2.0 increasing to 148bhp and 175bhp, while the 3.0’s output increased to 242bhp. Prices for post-facelift diesel models start at about £11,000.

Annual road tax ranges from £150 for the post-2012 facelift 2.0 TDI to up to £305 or a V6 petrol, which is competitive for this type of car, particularly considering there’s no front-wheel-drive version.

Servicing is required every 12 months or 10,000 miles, and Audi’s fixed price servicing represents good value, with prices starting from £164 for a minor service on a 2.0-litre Q5. Of course, there are plenty of specialists outside of the main dealer network who will service an elderly Q5 for you, often at cheaper rates.
