With sharp styling, a comfortable cabin and one of the best handling in its class, the Audi Q5 is a superb all-round SUV. It's considerably smaller than the Q7, making it much easier to drive and park, but still offers decent interior space and a large boot too.

Equipment

Audi Q5 equipment levels are kept simple thanks to just three trim levels being available.

When it was launched in 2008, the Audi Q5 was available in SE and S line trims. These two trim levels persist, but Audi also added the S Line Plus model at the beginning of 2012 to offer an even more opulent top spec model.

All Q5s come with four-wheel drive as standard and there’s a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearboxes with the 2.0-litre petrol and diesel motors.

Standard equipment

In SE trim, the Audi Q5 comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, aluminium roof rails, rear spoiler, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes, and electrically heated and adjusted door mirrors.

It also has electric windows all round, climate control, cruise control, CD stereo with MP3 connection and Bluetooth, a 6.5-inch colour display screen that works with Audi Multi Media Interface, and leather upholstery. There’s an alarm, Isofix child seat mounts, six airbags and ESP all included too.

For the S Line version of the Q5, Audi adds larger 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, along with S line sports suspension as a no-cost option.

The S line also gains a rear diffuser, rear LED lights, side skirts, Xenon headlights and daytime running lights.

Inside, the S line models have front sports seats and Nappa leather upholstery, a black headlining, three-spoke steering wheel and matt-brushed aluminium trim.

Go for the S line Plus and you get whopping 20-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors front and rear, parking assist, and electrically operated tailgate, metallic paint and privacy glass.

A satellite navigation system is standard for the S line Plus, along with Audi’s Music Interface system.

Audi Q5 accessories

Audi offers a wide range of accessories for the Q5 that includes an array of alloy wheels in 18-, 19- and 20-inch sizes.

There’s also the option of adding Audi Drive Select to all models which gives the driver the choice of comfort, dynamic, auto, efficiency and individual modes for the steering, throttle and suspension responses.

Dynamic Steering gives greater steering assistance at lower speeds while firming up the feel as the car goes faster and it’s an option for every Q5 model.

Other options include a Bang and Olufsen sound system with digital radio included, an off-road package with more protection for the body and underside, satellite navigation, and sunroof.

You can also add leather upholstery, roof rails, tow bar and a folding front passenger seat to aid practicality.
