2017 Audi Q5 review

See the full article here. The all-new second-generation Audi Q5 has very big shoes to fill, if it is to achieve anywhere near the success of its world-beating predecessor. From 2009 to 2015 the Audi Q5 was the world’s most successful SUV in its class. It was also Audi’s single biggest seller, at least as a body style, trumped only by the far broader A3 range...

2017 Audi Q5 - 2016 Paris Motor Show

The new Q5 is bigger but lighter than the car it replaces. While the looks are conservative, the car has plenty of technology brought down from the larger Q7 to ensure it becomes a really powerhouse in the premium mid-size SUV segment.

2017 Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Sport v Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d comparison

Luxury car makers absolutely love producing mid-sized SUVs based on passenger-car platforms, because aspirational upper-middle class family types are buying them in droves. The newest entrant to the class is Audi's second-generation Q5, which pairs clinical design with cutting-edge cabin tech and typically Teutonic execution...

Luxury SUV Comparison: Audi Q5 v BMW X3 v Lexus NX v Volvo XC60

Considering luxury SUVs are big business, the Lexus NX can’t be accused of being rushed to market. It’s more than a decade since Toyota’s luxury division introduced its last new SUV, the GX that is a spruced-up Prado and never sold in Australia. You then have to go back into the 1990s for the (LandCruiser-based) LX and (Highlander-based) RX...

2010 AUDI Q5 Review

Standing next to the petrol-powered Q5, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a diesel. So is the rapid tick-tick-tick of direct injection. Cruising around, the effortless powertrain shifts up between 1800-2100 RPM, slipping into seventh at seventy. Sadly at these revs, a diesel-like note is omnipresent...
