What We Think

We were impressed with the luxury crossover in our 2018 Audi Q5 Review, saying, “the new turbo-four Q5 launches strongly off the line with little turbo lag. It continues to pull strongly through the powerband even with a relatively packed cabin of four adults and their gear….

“Audi has managed to hit a sweet spot with the standard suspension. Bumps and road imperfections were never jarring even with our tester’s large 20-inch wheels (18-inch wheels are standard). The body leans a tad through fast corners, but the chassis remained planted and never seemed to understeer. … Steering is what we’d expect from a high-riding crossover. There’s little feedback, but on-center feel is good, and the chassis responds well to steering inputs…

“Taller, stronger, and packed with fancy tech, the new 2018 Audi Q5 should continue to stand out in this über-popular segment. Audi is better-equipped to keep up with demand, too, thanks to its new plant in Mexico, which is responsible for global production of the Q5 (except for China, which gets its own production facility for vehicles sold in that country).”
