The Q5 is Audi's answer to the prestige junior 4X4 market exemplified by the Land Rover Freelander, BMW X3 and the Volvo XC60. A very competent car. Expensive both new and secondhand.
As with its bigger sister the Q7, the Audi Q5 is road based. It is essentially just a tall estate car. That gives great visibility but it's fairly compromised off road. Most buyers don't care though. It looks the part.
There is only one petrol option on the Q5 and it's the 2 litre turbo from the Golf GTI. It's a brilliant engine and suits the car. Diesels make more sense though.
Go for a 2.0 diesel in 138 BHP trim with a manual box. The DSG is a bit jerky for school run use and the bigger diesels and petrols are thirsty. Go for SE spec as the great looking big wheels destroy the already lumpy ride.
Pay no more than £29,000 for a nearly new 2.0 diesel in SE spec.
Buy nearly new and sell on in a year to avoid any depreciation at all. Remarkable.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Audi Q5 you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Audi Q5 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Audi Q5 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Audi Q5 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
