The 2022 Audi Q5 is a tough-to-beat compact luxury SUV

The Audi Q5 SUV, a mainstay among compact luxury SUVs, and its sleeker-looking Q5 Sportback alternative remain appealing despite many impressive rivals. This very able all-arounder has been improved for 2022 with some updates to its infotainment. The plug-in hybrid model also gets a bigger battery for slightly improved electric-only range. More equipment and a slight styling refresh keep the Q5 looking and feeling good, as it always has, only more so for 2022.

Audi clearly has the basic formula right to keep the Q5 such a strong choice against such tough competition. The Q5 drives well—not as exciting as a Porsche Macan, perhaps, but with a competence that few are likely to find fault with. The interior remains among the best in class for fit and finish. Meanwhile, performance from the engines is good, both against the stopwatch as well as in EPA-estimated fuel consumption.
