Used Audi Q5 Information
A fairly recent addition to the Audi range, the 2009 Q5 offers a genuine alternative to pre-existing SUV rivals, namely the BMW X3 and Land Rover Freelander. Sitting between the smaller Q3 and larger Q7 in size, this car is a roomy and reliable model, and an excellent option for families requiring some extra space.
Being such a new car to the market, Audi has only produced one model to date. For a potential used buyer, this means that there is less to take into account in terms of differences between models and the choice becomes more about which engine and trim to select.
There has been, however, a cosmetic update to the Q5 in 2012 and some changes to the engines. The diesel range begins with a 2.0L diesel, in either 141hp or 168hp, with a 3.0L version also available. The petrol offerings start with a 2.0L turbo, in 176hp or 208hp, with the highest range spec a 3.2L FSI.
A more common option in the US market is the hybrid, which can also appear on the used market. Coming with an eight-speed gearbox as standard, this car has been praised for its smooth transition and light handling.
The most recent model of the Q5, in 2014, has been named the Best Luxury Compact SUV for Families by US News & World Report (X). Because of its reliability record and regular high-scores on review sites, this offering from Audi holds a lot of value after the first few years of ownership, so is an excellent vehicle to look for on the used market.
