Think of the Audi Q5 as an A4 sedan with more cargo space, a higher ride height and an extra measure of foul-weather capability and you won't be far off the mark. This is a combination that clearly appeals to many shoppers, and that's why compact luxury crossover SUVs like the Q5 have become so popular. The Q5 also boasts some of the sleekest sheet metal in its class and, as is typical of the Audi brand, a richly appointed, high-quality interior.
In reviews, we've found that the Audi Q5 strikes a remarkably satisfying balance between performance and comfort, while its variety of gasoline, diesel and hybrid powertrains offer both performance and efficiency. If you're interested in a smaller luxury crossover SUV, the Q5 is worth consideration.
