£41,555 when new
An Audi Q5 with a 2.0-litre TDI engine? Now you’re spoiling us. Not even the shiniest haired Audi sales executive would pretend the new Q5 2.0 TDI is the most interesting car to have four-fifths of the Olympic logo on its nose. But if we’re talking relevant cars for real-world folks, this is about as hotly awaited as prestige German cars get. Pre-options, it’s a £39,405 machine. You’re getting the new Q5, the darling of the posh crossover set, with a 189bhp motor capable of a claimed 56.5mpg, 132g/km – so that’s £130 annually on the current tax rules, and £200 on the new ones – and a potential range of 800 miles. Forgive the number deluge: it’s the simplest way of illustrating why this thing makes so much sense for so many punters (whether they’re spending their money, or their company’s). That’s the Golf GTD engine. Fast, is it?
