The original Q5 of 2008 was the first, real posh SUV on the road in the UK. Now, the roads are a little more crowded with Land Rover, BMW, Jaguar, Volvo, Mercedes and other luxury SUV cruisers. As you can imagine, Audi’s all-new version aims to move the game on, with its German manufacturers claiming it sets the benchmark in its class for quality and refinement.
Inside, the latest Q5 has grown slightly in size compared with the original. The boot is competitive with rivals for overall space. Boot space can be extended by folding the rear seats. As an optional extra you can also order the Q5 with rear seats that slide fore and aft to trade rear leg room for boot space. Slide them all the way back and the Q5 offers enough room for a tall passenger to sit behind a tall driver without their legs brushing the seat in front. Head room is also excellent and it’s possible to fit three adults side-by-side – perfect for picking up overseas clients from the airport.
The dashboard is beautifully finished, hi-tech and easy to operate. Take Audi’s MMI infotainment as a prime example, packing as it does SatNav (on Sport and S-line models), music streaming, DAB radio, smartphone mirroring and much more into a system that is crisply presented and easy to navigate
Audi only offers the Q5 with an automatic gearbox. The seven-speed unit fitted to 2.0-litre models is ultra-smooth. Light steering at low speeds also helps with maneuvering. The fact all Q5s are fitted with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system means it is capable in all weathers, and with air suspension fitted you can even raise the ride height if you fancy taking it off-road
