2016 Audi Q5

Buyer's Guide

This mid-size CUV offering from Audi hasn’t been updated since 2012 and a new one is on the way, but no one seems to care. Renowned for its quality and refinement, the Q5 still consistently among the best-selling luxury CUVs in Canada.

Two gasoline engines are available, a 2.0 L four-cylinder TFSI (220 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque; 12.0/8.5 L/100 km city/hwy), a 3.0 L six-cylinder TFSI (272 hp, 295 lb-ft; 13.2/9.2 L/100 km) and a hybrid power unit using the 2.0 TFSI (245 hp, 354 lb-ft; 9.8/7.9 L/100 km). All are matched exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive.

The base engine is available in three trims with pricing starting from $42,600. The 3.0 TFSI comes in the top two trims only, while the hybrid has a premium feature list all its own.

Komfort trim, available only with the 2.0 TFSI, includes 18” wheels, heated and power-adjustable front seats and lumbar support for the driver, a power tailgate, heated power exterior mirrors, and a 10-speaker sound system.

Progressiv trim, which can be had with either of the gasoline engines, includes the Komfort features plus headlight washers, rear parking sensors, three-zone climate control, driver’s seat memory function, and auto-dimming mirrors among other features.

Technik trim, also available with both gas engines, adds 19” wheels, a panoramic roof, heated rear seats, and adaptive headlights with cornering.

The Q5 hybrid comes with the features listed above plus a DVD player, navigation, and a parking system with rear camera as well as aesthetic upgrades.

A number of packages are available to augment the basic feature lists in the standard trims for the gasoline-fueled models.

The S line Sport package adds 19” wheels, sport seats with driver and passenger lumbar support, a flat-bottomed steering wheel with paddle shifters, plus a number of visual tweaks.

The Convenience package includes an advanced key, rear parking sensors, power front seats with a memory function for the driver, and Progressiv-level mirrors.

The Navigation package adds navigation, a rear-view camera with advanced parking system and front and rear sensors, and a DVD player.

The Black Optics package tacks on high-gloss black window and grille surrounds, roof rails, and exterior mirror housings.

For the hybrid, a Hybrid Sport package is available that includes 20” wheels with performance tires, sport seats with lumbar, a flat-bottomed steering wheel with paddle shifters, and visual upgrades.

Great family vehicle
It's an Audi so you can't go wrong. It has great and for the category is reasonably sized and fairly priced. The interior is so comfortable and attractive. It's got power and the all-wheel drive is excellent. This is a great family vehicle choice with some sportiness to it.

Audi Q5 can be can be both stylish and utilitarian
Audi Q5 can be can be both stylish and utilitarian. The Q5 should do a decent job. The rear seats fit three kids just fine.

For the most part, reviewers aren’t concerned about whether the 2012 Q5 can tackle family duty. They’re mainly impressed with the amount of power that’s available in the base 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the 3.2-liter, six-cylinder upgrade and how fuel efficient these engines are.

Test Drive Audi Q5
Audi Q5 is worth every penny, not only the low price similar as a compact car, but also this Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money offers a lot for the price: great fuel economy, outstanding performance and a lush cabin.

Parents interested in the Audi Q5 can be confident that it should do a decent job. The rear seats fit three kids just fine.

Audi Q5 family is impressed with the amount of power that’s available in the base 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the 3.2-liter, six-cylinder upgrade and how fuel efficient these engines are.

With standard leather seats and wood inlays, the Audi Q5 makes itself a truly luxury SUV
