What's on this page

Audi Q5

The Q5 is a mid-size luxury SUV from Audi, and the first-generation model was the second SUV to be added to the Audi lineup after the Q7 seven seater.

In the busy SUV segment, it competes against its primary rivals, the BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLC and newer arrivals like the Alfa-Romeo Stelvio and Jaguar F-Pace.

Today’s Q5 range spreads from the Q5 35 TDI Mhev Limited Edition from $68,350 to the Q5 50 TDI Quattro S Line Mhev at $94,900.

From its 2009 launch, the original Q5 was available with a petrol four-cylinder or diesel V6, with a diesel four-cylinder and petrol V6 arriving later. The sporty SQ5 variant was added in 2012.

The first two Q5 generations have shared much of their underpinnings with various other VW group vehicles on the company’s MLB modular platform.

  • Can I put an Amarok wheel on a Q5?

    I understand what you're trying to do, and the Amarok wheel might well fit, but I wouldn't recommend it. The Amarok wheels are 16 x 6.5-inch, the Q5's are 17 x 8-inch. Go to an Audi dealer, or a specialist mechanic and try to find a more suitable steel wheel.

  • GLC 250 or Q5 3.0L?

    It’s the GLC by a clear margin. It’s completely new, more refined in all things from the cabin to the suspension, and better value. It gets The Tick from me.
