2017 Audi Q5 verdict and specs

Should I buy one?

The Q5 will win over many buyers on the quality of its interior and technology alone. That it also drives well should have it right at the sharp end of the class when it goes on sale in early 2017.

It does remain to be seen exactly where it will fit in when it comes to fuel economy, CO2 figures and pricing, but all indications at this stage are that it should make for an overall value proposition at least as good as its rivals. If it does, a five-star rating and class honours could well be waiting.
