The Audi Q5 is series of compact luxury crossover SUVs produced by the German luxury car manufacturer Audi from 2008. With sharp styling, a comfortable cabin and one of the best handling in its class, the Audi Q5 is a superb all-round SUV. It’s considerably smaller than the Q7, making it much easier to drive and park, but still offers decent interior space and a large boot too.
It doesn’t have much off-road ability, but it’s not designed to be taken into tricky terrain, instead it drives like a car on the road with minimal body roll and a refined ride.
There’s a good choice of engines, including the refined yet frugal 2.0 TDI, along with an excellent seven-speed automatic gearbox.
If you’re after a premium 4×4, but don’t need the ruggedness of the Land Rover Freelander, the Q5 is the best model around.
