Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the updated Audi Q5!
It may only be a facelift rather than an all-new model, but the question is - does the new Q5 have what it takes to stand out and gain your attention over key competitors like the Mercedes GLC & BMW X3?
Well for starters, it certainly looks the part! Sure, it’s not that different to the old model, but you still get a couple of nice changes, including a wider grille at the front and LEDs as standard (with the option to get Matrix LEDs if you choose a higher-spec model).
When it comes to performance, the range-topper is a hybrid 2-litre turbo petrol, which combined with the electric motor will deliver 370hp! It’s also worth remembering that all models come with AWD as standard, as well as an automatic gearbox… But then again, would you expect anything else?!
So what do you think - can the Q5 really take on the GLC and X3? Or would you choose the Mercedes or BMW instead? You’ll have to keep watching to see which you should go for!

  • I am astounded that Audi has a entertainment system stuck on top of the dashboard like an afterthought. It is horrible, it looks lazy as if they couldnt be bothered to redesign the dashboard to incorporate it in a more elegant way. If I could afford it I still wouldnt buy it because of that. Shame on you Audi.

  • Why does Mat Watson always throws things around in the review cars, and handle the car controls so roughly? Man what do you want to prove with such arrogance? And what's that ugly habit of checking fake exhaust with dirty tree branches? Sheer arrogance :(

    SandroSandroVor 27 Tage
  • Nice review. 32 MPG equals 7.35 L/100 km. Which is actually awesome for a car like this with powerful tubro-4. Given that the modern diesel motors are cut in power due to environment regulations, for most people I guess 2.0T would be the most adequate choice if you average 20-25 thousand KM per year. If you do more than 50 thousand km, then the economy from diesel will be more substantial. However I doubt it is very important in 50-60k USD car.

  • I hate how ignorant of ACTUAL car technology and product design Matt is. Every "review" he does is riddled with criticisms of things that are inarguably merits of the vehicle. 🤦🏾‍♀️ In what world is a boot lip a problem? After all these years, he STILL doesn’t know that a load lip serves to stop things rolling out of your boot (especially when parked at an incline)??? Matt is NOT a motoring journalist. He’s a car salesman-cum-crappy-youtuber. 😖😖 p.s. Only performance fanboys and zealots care about fake body work! The average consumer only cares that it looks good. 🤷‍♀️

  • Sorry Audi, just stupid to make the system only touch screen. I drive the 2018 Audi A4 which had the same interior then the pre facelift Q5 and the system is much more easy to use and more important safe. I never need to streech my had. What where you thinking Audi. For that I would never upgrade to only touch screen since I just hate it.
