The Top Gear car review:Audi Q5
For:Better than the old one pretty much everywhere
Against:Not cheap, especially once you've piled on the spec
What is it?
A pretty thorough re-work of the Audi Q5 - frequent bestseller in its segment, peon to the middle-of-the-road mid-sized SUV and general wall of usefulness. The new Q5 is based on the new A4’s ‘MLB’ platform for longitudinal engines and it promises more comfort and better handling. There’s a load of aluminium in there, helping drop the base 2.0-litre TFSI’s kerbweight by some 90kg. Impressive stuff.
