2017 Audi Q5 is getting older, but there's still a lot to like

Audi isn't keeping any secrets: There's a new Q5 coming soon. But that shouldn’t prevent you from considering the 2017 Q5. There's a lot to like about it, even in the final year of this generation. The lineup remains much the same. The entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged engine packs 220 hp, and the 3.0T above that is a supercharged V6 with 276 hp. At the top of the range, the performance-minded SQ5 delivers 354 hp and acceleration that beats all but a few rivals. There's a Hybrid model, too, if you want your Q5 with an electrified powertrain.

Trim levels are the familiar Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige, with a variety of option packages that add luxury, sport, or tech equipment. On the tech front, though, you’ll be better served by newer rivals—even the optional, upgraded infotainment/navigation in the Q5 feels dated. If you can live with that, there's still a lot to like about the Q5, but we're expecting great things from its replacement next year.
