Which used Audi Q5 4x4 should I buy?
While not super-quick in terms of outright pace, the 2.0 TDI has the best blend of performance and economy of all the engines available in the Q5, plus it's also pretty smooth compared with equivalent 2.0-litre diesel engines in most rivals. The 3.0 TDI would also be a good choice, if you could find one...
For those who really need a petrol, the 2.0 TFSI is your only option because the petrol SQ5 is really expensive to run, and you'll need to have easy access to a plug socket with the plug-in hybrid in order for that car to make financial sense.
The entry-level SE is very well equipped, but we think the Sport model is a better bet, because it has sat-nav and far more supportive sports seats in the front. There are also far more Sport examples available used than SE.
Most S line you'll come across will have firmer sports suspension fitted that's a bit too much for our roads, while Black Edition and Edition 1 models are really more of a styling package. The Vorsprung model is nice, but not worth the additional expense over a Sport.
