Design & Style

Audi Q5 is a 5-seater crossover SUV that does well to treat front-row passengers, but the rear seats can have limited foot room due to awkward positioning of middle seat over a high floor hump. The interior looks great inside with some quality materials like wood trim and standard leather upholstery, but could have been more opulent.

BMW never fails to amaze the car enthusiasts with its exterior and interior designing. Every trim piece is intricately designed with quality materials. The cabin is roomy enough to fit 5 adults of all sizes, and a plenty of seating amenities come standard, rather optional.

What you are missing in the base model is a Wi-Fi hot spot, satellite radio and wireless charging. The physical controls are not that easy to use. Every Q5 models comes equipped with a rearview camera and Audi Pre-Sense Basic, which helps in guarding passengers when an imminent collision is detected.

The 2020 Audi Q5 comes with a 248-HP 4-cylinder engine that is not truly quick off the line, and may feel underpowered on the highways.
