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.
Here in Australia, over that same six-year period, the Q5 notched up almost 24,000 sales and the biggest slice of the market share pie.
It’s a tried and proven formula that has clearly stood the test of time, which is why Audi has been careful not to mess with it too much. But drill down into the detail and you’ll soon discover a raft of improvements. And all for the better.
