New Audi Q5 Review Finds It Less Exciting To Drive Than BMW’s X3

Available since 2008, the first generation of the Audi Q5 has been retired and replaced with a more modern take on the premium SUV class.

Riding on Audi’s new MLB Evo platform, shared with the new A4 and Q7, and fitted with all the latest features that the brand with the four rings has to offer, the new 2017 Q5 fell into the hands of AutoExpress which traveled to Mexico to put the SUV through its paces and tell us what it’s all about.

So, how does the all-new Audi Q5 compare to the competition? Well, according to the British journalist, it’s not as exciting to drive as the BMW X3 and -unsurprisingly- cannot compare to the Porsche Macan, but see what the magazine has to say for yourself in the video below.
