Ten Second Review

Audi's understated Q5 continues its subtle conquest of the premium mid-sized SUV sector. This improved version of the second generation model gets the option of plug-in hybrid power and an SQ5 TDI diesel variant at the top of the range. As before, this Audi offers car-like driving dynamics that are great on tarmac and are even pretty effective for light off road use. There's loads of advanced technology and a beautifully practical interior crafted in the brand's own inimitable style. In short, if you can afford it, you'd like one.

Driving Experience

Most Q5 customers will want the 190PS 2.0 TDI diesel engine used in the volume '40 TDI' variant, but low mileage owners shouldn't discount the 245PS 2.0 TFSI petrol unit in the alternative '45 TFSI' derivative. There's also a '50 TFSIe' plug-in petrol variant that uses a 299PS powertrain. And at the top of the range, buyers looking for a sporting Q5 choose between two very different variants. One is another plug-in petrol model, the 'Competition 55 TFSIe', which offers 367PS. And one is a diesel, the SQ5 TDI, which offers 347PS. Across the range, Audi's smooth seven-speed S tronic auto gearbox is standard, as is quattro 4WD, which uses the brand's 'ultra' technology to always disengage the rear-axle drive whenever it isn't needed: if necessary, the system can then proactively re-engage it. The most powerful variants can be ordered with an optional sport differential at the rear axle which distributes torque between the wheels for sharper handling. And all models get Torque vectoring for extra cornering precision. Dynamically, Audi has tried to make this Q5 feel sporty yet extremely comfortable; key elements of this lie with the supple five-link suspension set-up and the progressive electromechanical power steering system. Choose a model with adaptive damping and you'll be able to tailor the ride quality via the various settings of the standard 'Audi drive select' vehicle dynamics system. You can do the same thing with the even more sophisticated adaptive air suspension package that's available as an option. Those venturing 'off piste' will be interested in the two settings added to the 'drive select' set-up - 'lift/offroad' and 'allroad'.

Market and Model

The price positioning of this second generation Q5 hasn't changed very much, so this car will continue to sell in the £41,500 to £68,000 bracket. There's the choice of 'Sport', 'S line', 'Black Edition', 'Vorsprung' and 'SQ5' trim levels. The key interior feature is the 'Audi Virtual Cockpit' a 12.3-inch screen that completely replaces the dials in the instrument binnacle. The MMI terminal in the centre console acts as the main control element. In the top infotainment system, the optional 'MMI navigation plus with MMI touch' 8.3-inch display, a touchpad is integrated into the rotary pushbutton. Many Q5 owners will want to order the smartest 'multi-fuction steering wheel plus' and some may also want the optional Head-up display. The Audi navigation system will also be popular, the latest set-up able to 'learn' your regular routes and suggest optimised planning for your next trip. As ever with an Audi, media connectivity will be key to many customers. 'MMI navigation plus' uses the 'Audi connect' module to integrate a LTE module and a Wi-Fi hotspot. And a free 'Audi MMI connect app' allows you to monitor your car from your 'phone. You can connect in your handset via the 'Apple CarPlay' or 'Android Auto' systems - and boost its reception via the optional 'Audi phone box' feature. Kids will like the 'Audi tablet' system which provides for rear seat entertainment.

Summary

Whether your destination is Sainsburys or the annual family skiing trip to Crans Montana, you'll feel better about doing it in an Audi Q5. In between, in contrast to larger, plusher and thirstier 4x4s, you won't get that nagging feeling of using a sledgehammer to crash a nut when it comes to meeting your real motoring needs. Nor, when you're alone on a twisty B road, should you need to wish you'd bought something sportier. Of course, this second generation model faces tough competition, but the well considered package of changes made to this smart, well equipped and high-tech mid-sized premium SUV should keep it very competitive with cars like Mercedes' GLC and BMW's X3 in the chasing pack. Certainly it's not cheap - but then neither is anything else in this segment and at least you'll get a decent part of your money back at resale time. True, it doesn't have the showiness of a Range Rover Evoque or the ultimate handling feedback of a BMW X3, but many will still find this Audi a perfect balance between these two extremes. Resolutely hi-tech and resolutely real world, the Q5 remains resolutely right.

Background

The second generation version of Audi's Q5 premium mid-sized SUV has always been a strong proposition with its sharp looks, sophisticated technology and efficient engines. Audi, you see, doesn't do things by halves. This has always been the kind of mid-sized SUV you buy if, rather unreasonably, you want something with reasonable mastery of the mud as well as the motorway. Something that'll look great in the driveway, keep you mobile in a snowy snap and shrink around you when a twisting road opens up ahead. It's a demanding brief that nearly half a million global owners felt was achieved by the original MK1 version of this car. It's successor, this model, has continued that strong sales performance. But is this second generation version still good enough to take on tough rivals that now offer a stronger challenge than ever before? To make sure that it will be, Audi has subtly improved this Q5 and added in clever plug-in hybrid tech.

Design and Build

Compared to the previous model, this second generation Q5 has grown in nearly all of its dimensions and takes a defined and taut stance on the road. A sculpturally flared Singleframe grille with a solid frame dominates its aerodynamically flat front end. This feature is flanked by headlights that use either xenon or full-LED technology - or buyers can order Audi's advanced adaptable Matrix LED system as an option. A distinctively curved and strongly undercut shoulder line gives structure to the side view. The strongly emphasised wheel arches are a reference to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, and the low greenhouse tapers back down early. Just as at the front, horizontal lines at the rear aim to convey an image of width and presence. The tailgate wraps around the C-pillars - a typical feature of Audi Q models. At the wheel, a three-dimensional trim strip runs across the entire width of the instrument panel and here's a re-designed three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. This remains a five-seat model and the rear seat is split into three segments. Longitudinal and seat back angle adjustment are optional. Depending on the rear seat position, the basic volume of the luggage compartment ranges from 550 to 610-litres, 10-litres more than in the previous Q5. When the rear bench is folded down, this volume grows to 1,550-litres.

Cost of Ownership

From launch this second generation Q5 took a big step forward in terms of efficiency, thanks to a 90kg weight saving over its predecessor. This came mainly courtesy of the fact that steels with maximum tensile strength and aluminium form an intelligent material mix in the body. It also helps in this regard that the MK2 model Q5 stands at the top of its class in its aerodynamics. The four-cylinder versions attain a cd figure of 0.30 with the aerodynamically optimised roof. As a result, the 40 TDI diesel that most customers buy manages up to 39.2mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and up to 144g/km of CO2 (NEDC). For the 45 TFSI petrol, the figures are 33.2mpg and 164g/km. If you're prepared to consider the petrol 55 TFSIe plug-in hybrid, you'll find that combined cycle fuel economy is rated at 113mpg, while CO2 is 49g/km. Plus the car when fully charged can travel up to 26 miles on full-electric power. And residuals? Well, trying to buy a used Q5 is quite a depressing experience as they cling onto their value with some tenacity. This is great news for the new buyer and part of a trend certain to continue with this MK2 model. After the usual three year / 60,000 mile ownership period, expect it still to be worth around 45% of what you originally paid for it.
