The Audi Q5 is a compact crossover SUV that has been manufactured by Audi since 2008. It is currently in its second generation as of 2017.
It features the typical 5-door layout found in most SUVs. There is also the 5-door coupe SUV version called the Sportback, which was released in 2021.
It is built on VW Group’s MLB platform and comes with either front-wheel or the Quattro all-wheel drivetrains. This is the same platform used in the A4 and A5, along with various others.
Competition models from other manufacturers include the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC/GLK. It is also corporate cousins with the Porsche Macan.
Trim levels are the same as the others offered in Audi’s SUV lineup. These consist of the base Premium, Premium Plus, and finally the Prestige. There is also the S-Line version that has a sporty look to it.
Unlike many other models, there has never been a high-performance RS version to date. However, there was an SQ5 that featured a twin-turbocharged engine and other upgrades.
Petrol engines range from the smallest 2-liter TFSI inline-4 up to the 3.2-liter V6 FSI found in the first-generation models. Diesel options range accordingly, but only go up to a 3-liter TDI V6 for both models.
Audi also offers various plug-in and mild hybrid configurations with specific engines.
Transmissions range from 6-speed automatic and manual gearboxes to the 8-speed direct-shift gearboxes found in the SQ5 versions. There was also a 7-speed S-Tronic transmission in the first model.
The Q5 was awarded the 2020 Best Buy in the compact luxury SUV category, making it the third Best Buy award the model has received.
