Audi has cornered the marketplace on timeless appeal, which explains why the Q5 continues to sell so strongly against much newer rivals. Get in it and it's easy to understand why. Even though the 2016 Audi Q5 is in its twilight years, its interior fit and finish still stands up to scrutiny against the very best of its rivals. It is showing its age, notably in the functionality of the infotainment system and lack of things like USB ports.
Trim levels remain much the same, and with tweaking of equipment levels, you don’t feel shortchanged by the standard offerings in the base Premium trim. As always, there are option packages to add luxury touches and connectivity to meet your needs. The engine choices remain impressive, too, with the 2.0T, 3.0T, and Hybrid models all sitting under the range-topping SQ5 high-performance model. The TDI diesel was quietly dropped following issues with its emissions ratings. All-wheel drive comes standard on all trims. A fine all-arounder, the 2016 Q5 might be advancing in years, but it's doing so very nicely indeed.
