2018 Audi Q5 Is Almost Flawless According To Kelley Blue Book

There’s no such thing as a perfect car, but in the world of compact premium SUVs, the 2018 Audi Q5 comes really close to achieving perfection.

At least that’s what Kelley Blue Book’s review claims, which found only a few  negatives and an onslaught of positives.

Starting with the faults, it’s worth noting that sitting in the middle of the backseat of a Q5 can be a bit of a struggle, so it’s best to save that spot for a child. Then there are the small cup holders, which could bother people who like to carry bottles around and not just regular plastic cups.

Finally, you can’t interact with the Q5’s infotainment screen by using your fingers, which is a shame since features such as Apple CarPlay are best enjoyed via touch.

As for the positives, there’s a high-quality cabin, which boasts comfortable seats and solid overall tech features.  On the road, the 2018 Q5 is composed, agile and quick, even with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which provides “refined power delivery and spirited acceleration.” Its seven-speed dual-clutch automatic shifts rapidly, while the standard quattro AWD system offers you peace of mind on slippery surfaces.

If speed is your ultimate concern, perhaps you might want to consider the SQ5 version. Still, even the regular Q5 really stands out in a very competitive segment that includes rivals such as the Mercedes GLC, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60 – but you can see for yourselves in the video that follows.
