What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi Q5 4x4?

The BMW X3  is a classy design with excellent build quality. It’s also good to drive, with a range of smooth and efficient engines. It’s quiet and comfortable, and roomy inside. The later versions are among the best cars in this class, and well worth looking at if you’re considering a Q5.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport has the advantage over the Q5 and the X3 of being a seven-seater, although those two rearmost seats are cramped, and perhaps only suitable for children. However, it handles well, the interior is smart and it’s good looking. Countered against that is a poor showing in our most recent reliability survey.
