Our Verdict

The Q5 from the German luxury carmaker, Audi is its second biggest SUV after the Q7. One of its best-in-class cars, Audi attempted to have an SUV that was less rugged and more sheen and it reflects in the Q5. It makes for a striking impact, with the neat blending of a mi-sized SUV that feels like a saloon and is very agile. Coupled with Audi’s renowned MMI system, premium interiors and eye-catching exteriors, the SUV is well-engineered, ergonomically designed vehicle. But like its other sibling SUVs, this is also not cut out as an off-roader. But downsides, apart, it holds its fort amongst its sibling SUVs, the Q3 and Q7.
