The Audi Q5 is a mid-sized SUV, which sits between the smaller Q3 and larger Q7 in the Audi SUV family. The current model arrived in the UK in early 2017 and is the second generation of Q5. Size-wise, it is very similar to the Audi A4 Avant (estate).

The Q5 has generally received very good scores from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating that is currently the second best in its class behind its closely-related cousin, the Porsche Macan. An updated model arrived in the UK in the second half of 2020, with minor visual difference and trim updates.

The Audi Q5 has received particular praise for its engineering, refinement and interior quality. However, it is not considered the best car to drive in this class and many useful features are only available as expensive options.

In a 2020 What Car? survey of the most reliable cars in the UK up to eight years old, the Audi Q5 ranked equal 49th.
