2015 Audi Q5 remains a compact luxury SUV front-runner

It’s a testament to the Audi Q5 that even after six years it remains very much a benchmark among luxury compact SUVs. Others, such as the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan, drive with a bit more zest than the Audi, but the Q5's broad range of talents and an interior that's unrivaled in fit and finish make it a compelling choice even against newer contenders. A good range of trims and engines helps, with everything from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine to a V6 turbodiesel. A hybrid is in the mix, too, as well as the range-topping high-performance SQ5. All-wheel drive comes standard.

Lower trim levels require option packages to increase the equipment from adequate to ample. The standard trims of Premium, Premium Plus, Prestige, and Hybrid Prestige can all be supplemented by a range of packages, including Comfort, Sport, S line, Driver Assist, and Luxury, which can be a bit confusing. The Premium Plus with the S line is a good starting point, though, and any engine choice has merit. All offer good performance mixed with acceptable EPA fuel economy figures.
