The 2015 Audi Q5 has been one of our favorite luxury crossovers since its arrival, and it’s now offered with a variety of drivetrains to suit the driver’s personal taste. Each of its five engine choices is paired with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. No matter how you choose the Q5, though, it always delivers responsive acceleration and good handling, despite its higher center of gravity compared to a car or sport wagon.
Passengers sit relatively high in the Q5, with more than enough headroom and legroom in front, and the seats themselves are firm and adjustable to a wide range of sizes. Even in back, there’s a enough legroom for most adults, thanks to a rather long wheelbase. Cabin materials are about the best they come in this class, with a rich, unified feel throughout and nice detailing. The Q5 has excellent build quality and a tight, refined feel overall although road noise can be an issue.
The Q5 can be equipped with a wide range of features, but its base price of around $38,000 can be driven up very rapidly by checking a few option boxes. Standard equipment includes a ten-speaker sound system, heated mirrors, leather upholstery, power front seats, tri-zone climate control, Sirius satellite radio, iPod connectivity, and an SD card slot that can manage up to 32 gigabytes of music. Premium Plus and Prestige models load on the luxuries, and a Q5 3.0T can easily top $55,000. The Q5 also now offers as optional equipment Audi Connect 3G wireless Internet service, Google Earth mapping, adaptive cruise control with full braking at speeds of up to 19 mph, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

2015 Audi Q5 Interior
The base model now carries all the features we’d want to see in any luxury-branded vehicle–now that Bluetooth and iPod connectivity and keyless entry have been made standard. The base Q5, dubbed Premium trim, also includes power locks, windows, and heated exterior mirrors; leather upholstery and walnut trim; power front seats; an AM/FM/XM/CD player with an SD card slot for additional memory; and 18-inch wheels.
With the Premium Plus package, the Q5 gets a panoramic sunroof; a power tailgate; heated front seats; and a xenon headlight package with LED daytime running lights. Other options on the Q5 2.0T include a package with sport seats, a sport steering wheel and shift paddles; and a navigation system bundled with a rearview camera. Rear-seat airbags, different wood or aluminum trim, and an entertainment system are stand-alone options.
2015 Audi Q5 Exterior
The Q5’s cockpit derives its style from its lack of drama, its lack of subpar materials, the absence of flashy cheapness. It’s a universally pleasing, well-detailed execution that’s common to just about every Audi interior. Like those other cars from the brand, the Q5 has a rather wide center console, clearly differentiating the driver and front passenger areas, cockpit style, yet the dash itself isn’t all that curvy or claustrophobic–rather, it’s more upright and forward, helping maximize a sense of space. A beautiful layered oak trim is now an option, elevating bits of the dash with a furniture-like finish.
Less of a shrunken Q7 than a more spacious Audi wagon, the Audi Q5 has pretty proportions and a cabin that’s cleanly styled and trimmed to a high standard. The cohesive look fits snugly alongside Audi’s car lineup, blending in easily with the Allroad wagon and even the A4 sedan, which all share its tall grille and slim LED-outlined headlamps. Its cockpit sets a high-water mark for simplicity and for fit and finish, particularly with the optional layered-oak trim, though we might wish for more recognizable buttons while we fumble to control the lush-looking non-touchscreen display.
2015 Audi Q5 Engine
The 2015 Audi Q5 may very well have multiple personalities, but we’re not complaining. There’s a choice of five different engines each with different dynamics, ranging from sensible to enthusiastic and its well-sorted suspension handles each configuration with grace and ease.
Where the green-eyed Q5 shoppers will peel off is with either the Q5 TDI or the Q5 Hybrid. The TDI is the less complex, more rational piece of the fuel-economy puzzle. With the usual diesel differences a much narrower powerband, more vibration through the driving inputs the TDI snares excellent combined fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg while still keeping a pace with the turbo-four edition, thanks to 240 hp and 428 pound-feet of torque. There’s some additional tire noise too, but the compromises are slight for those leading EPA figures.
The Q5 Hybrid, couples the four cylinder turbo to lithium-ion batteries and an electric motor. Total net output of 245 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque are said to deliver a 0-60 mph time of 6.8 seconds and 26 mpg combined on the EPA cycle. We’ve had some brief exposure to the Hybrid, but only in controlled track driving; we’ll bring you more as we learn more.
We’re happy with any of the carry over powerplants, especially the 2.0-liter turbo four–it’s lighter and almost as quick as the Q5 3.0T, with its 272-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. We’ve spent less time with the Q5 Hybrid, which blends the power from a 54-hp electric motor and lithium-ion batteries for 245 hp net, but would tend to prefer the Q5 TDI we’ve driven extensively, anyway. The turbodiesel’s acceleration is similar, its combined fuel economy higher, and its driving feel more natural. We’re also fans of the SQ5, which comes with an upgraded suspension, as well as a 354-hp version of the 3.0-liter supercharged V-6. All-wheel drive is standard on all Q5 crossovers, as is an eight-speed, paddle-shifted automatic.
