Audi Q5 40 TDi Quattro SUV- Comfort at a price

Audi Q5 is a medium size SUV and is Audi’s second bestselling model and is close in sales to the Mercedes Benz GLB, the BMW X3, and the Volvo XC60.

We had the 40 TDI a two litre, diesel with mild hybrid assistance.

It priced at $74,900 plus on road costs, about right with the other luxury brands but at least $30,000 more than a quite sophisticated Toyota RAV 4 hybrid.


The Q5 has plenty of features but not rear cross traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control is an option.

But there is a quality ambience when driving. A good test is a motorway in Sydney with many close spaced epoxy fitted cracks which can sound and feel like driving along sleepers on a railway track.

Noise and intrusion into the Audi cabin were minimal. Not practical value for money but elegant to drive.

What is good?

What is not so good?
