Compare the 2017 Audi Q5

Loading Comparison...


The Audi Q5 has been around since the 2008 season, earning only a mild update for 2014. It’s an old-timer among five-passenger compact crossover SUVs.

Changes for the 2017 Audi Q5 are minor: The top 2017 Q5 Prestige trim level gains adaptive cruise control and other standard equipment, including Drive Select. Audi also is making its adaptive suspension available on more models and increasing some wheel sizes, while adding a sport appearance package to the top performance model. Bluetooth connectivity is standard on all trim levels. Blind-spot monitoring is available.

Three engines are available for 2017 Audi Q5 models: a four-cylinder plus two renditions of a supercharged V6. Gone are hybrid and diesel versions.

The base turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder develops 220 horsepower, versus 272 horsepower for the supercharged 3.0-liter V6. Topping the performance chart, a stronger supercharged V6 generates 354 horsepower in the SQ5 edition. That’s sufficient to accelerate to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, versus 7 seconds for the four-cylinder and 6 seconds for the regular V6.

Each engine mates with an 8-speed automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. The enthusiastic base engine delivers plenty of four-cylinder action, helped by a quick-operating transmission.

Audi’s MMI infotainment systems perform well, though lacking a touchscreen. Base models have a 6.5-inch screen.

If installed, the adaptive Drive Select system can alter steering, transmission, and throttle responses, working in accord with the adaptive suspension. Drive Select has four modes: Auto, Sport, Individual, and Comfort.

A rearview camera is available but only with the Technology package for the Q5 2.0T trim, which also includes navigation and Bang & Olufsen audio. Sport Interior, S Line, and Black Optic packages are available for 3.0T models.

Federal officials at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2017 Q5 a four-star score overall, with a five-star rating for side-impact protection, but four stars in frontal crash and rollover safety. The 2016 Audi Q5 was rated a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, after earning top Good scores in each crash test.


Each engine selection comes in a choice of two trim levels.

The Q5 2.0T Premium ($40,900) comes with the four-cylinder engine, leather seating surfaces, walnut trim, 10-speaker audio, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, xenon headlights, three-zone automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, and 18-inch wheels. 2.0T Premium Plus ($43,150) adds heated front seats, driver’s seat memory, heated power mirrors with memory, and 19-inch wheels.

Q5 3.0T Premium Plus ($46,400) gets the V6 engine and Premium Plus contents, including 19-inch wheels. Q5 3.0T Prestige ($53,200) adds adaptive headlights, adaptive cruise control, Drive Select, navigation with voice control, blind-spot monitoring, Bang & Olufsen 14-speaker audio, paddle shifters, and a heated/cooled cupholder.

Audi SQ5 Premium Plus ($53,300) holds the 354-horsepower engine and comes with Drive Select, plus 20-inch wheels. SQ5 Prestige ($60,800) adds equipment similar to the 3.0T Prestige.


Not all crossovers and SUVs age well, but the subtle, simply styled Q5 still looks handsome after almost a decade in Audi’s lineup. Throughout its life, excellent build quality has been a strong point. The 2017 model year will be the first-generation Q5’s last, as a replacement was exhibited in early fall of 2016.

Design elements hail from Audi’s group of sedans. Specifically, the Q5 is related to the prior-generation A4, which ranked among the German automaker’s best. In general, designers haven’t tried to overrun the Q5’s carlike curves, keeping its exterior free of drama and possibly negative surprises.


Despite its status as one of the oldest crossover SUVs in its category, the Q5 earns plaudits for its roomy and comfortable cabin – and its luxury touches. Highly refined and richly finished, the cabin demonstrates strong attention to details, as well as to trim choices. The interior also makes good use of available space, helped by an upright dashboard.

Following a cockpit-style layout with a relatively wide central console, the driver and passenger are well separated. Although it’s a bit cluttered, the dashboard presents a unified appearance. Trim possibilities include newly optional layered oak wood.

Both the driver and front passenger have good views ahead, and satisfying seats. A relatively long wheelbase translates to sufficient legroom for back-seat occupants. That seat slides, reclines, and folds forward. When folded, cargo space almost doubles, totaling more than 57 cubic feet. Smaller-item storage includes 1-liter cupholders.

Back seats don’t impede much of the rearward view, and outside mirrors are big.

Driving Impressions

Performance stretches from perky in the four-cylinder Q5 to superlative with the sizzling SQ5. The base model gets a lot of useful energy out of its 220-horsepower engine, despite having to push more than two tons of crossover. Turbo lag isn’t evident, either. Picking the 3.0-liter V6 adds some 250 pounds, limiting the performance boost from the additional 52 horsepower.

Audi’s 8-speed automatic transmission responds well to calls for shifting, and features closely-spaced gear ratios. Standard quattro all-wheel drive helps the Q5 breeze through snow and scamper up slick driveways, helped by 8-inch ground clearance.

Carlike handling and a taut suspension yield a firm, well-controlled ride. In standard form, the suspension provides natural responses to pavement imperfections. Helped by its lighter weight, the four-cylinder Q5 excels in passing and cornering capabilities. Electric power steering limits road feel, but the Q5 stays readily on course and is pleasantly predictable.

Road noise may be noticeable in four-cylinder models, but tight body structure results in a refined road experience.

Ranking as a true performance model, the potent SQ5 is emphatically swift. Even with the adaptive suspension, however, expect some body roll during hard cornering. That’s a price to be paid for a top-heavy crossover SUV.

Fuel-efficiency is nothing to boast about. Four-cylinder models are EPA-rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. The Q5’s 3.0-liter V6 is EPA-rated at 18/26 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined, while the SQ5 is estimated at 17/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined.


Regardless of age, the Q5 remains one of the more desirable luxury SUVs, promising carlike handling and ample interior space. Simple styling and quality materials have helped it remain viable. Abundantly equipped in each trim level, the Q5 makes the most sense in four-cylinder form.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
