The 2022 Audi Q5 is all set to be carried forward with just a few minor updates. This is after the 2021 Q5 got a complete redesign including bigger dimensions. The 2022 Q5 comes with the previously optional S Line exterior trim, which also now adds aluminum front door sills and new 18-inch alloy wheels as standard. For 2022, Audi also adds a new Black Optic package, which now gets 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, and a black exterior treatment too. It faces direct competition from the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLC Class, BMW X3, and Volvo XC60

2022 Audi Q5 For Sale

On sale now, the 2022 Audi Q5 comes at a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $43,300 for the Premium trim, while the mid-tier Premium Plus trim will set you back by $48,300. The 2022 Q5 Prestige, priced at $54,000, is the trim we recommend. Building on the Premium Plus trim, the Prestige adds a host of high-end features along with fitments from both the Warm Weather and Convenience package as standard. Leasing the 2022 Audi Q5 is certainly not a cumbersome task, as lease payments of an average of $698/ month can also be had, for a 36-month period. This excludes $2,000 that is to be paid at signing. 

2022 Audi Q5 Buying Advice

Audi made a few changes to the 2020 Q5, adding plenty of standard and optional features to the mix. Further, the 2020 Q5 paved the way for the new updated exterior design language that we see in the 2022 Q5. If you're further considering an even older MY, the 2017 Q5 is certainly competent.

Buying Advice

Priced at an MSRP of $43,300, we recommend getting the Audi Q5 Premium trim which comes with plenty of premium and convenient features like leather upholstery, 18-inch wheels, the 10.1-inch infotainment system that has navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and a 10-speaker sound system. Additionally, you get the new S-line exterior package so your car does look slightly sportier. We would recommend getting the rear-side thoracic airbags and the panoramic sunroof too, which are optional and come at a certain premium.

Engine and Performance
9.0/10

With the 2021 Audi Q5 model's slight power boost for its engine, the 2022 Audi Q5 will also be featuring the same 2.0L Inline-4 Turbo engine called 45 TFSI that makes 261 horses and 273 lb-ft torque.

The ride and handling dynamics of the Q5 is pretty smooth and stable. It gives you your money's worth when you stick it down a winding road, as the steering is pretty sharp with adequate feedback, and also it has negligible body roll. The 2022 Audi Q5 makes the most amount of power, this is followed by the Mercedes-Benz GLC which makes 255 hp but can tow up to 3,500 pounds. The Volvo XC60 comes with 5 hp lesser than the GLC but can tow up to the same amount of weight. The least powerful is the BMW X3 but it performs better than the GLC and XC60 and tows the same amount as the Audi Q5.

The BMW X3 which comes with the same combined MPG offers a lesser range thanks to its smaller fuel tank.

Interior
8.5/10

The Audi Q5's cabin is sharp and hits the mark for the luxury compact SUV class - Cars.USNews

The Premium Plus trims come with a reconfigurable 12.3-inch digital gauge instrument cluster and have the option of the Navigation Package which adds navigation plus. The Prestige trim includes that and also comes with a heads-up display.

8.0/10

The rest of it has been carried forward from the 2021 model which got minor adjustments to the exterior. It features a single frame honeycomb grille (as it now gets the S line exterior) with LED headlights on either side. 

It also features aluminum roof rails, a roof spoiler, heated side mirrors, LED taillights, and dual exhaust tips. The Q5 Premium Plus trim gets 19-inch wheels and a panoramic sunroof, and lastly, the prestige trim gets Matrix Design LED headlights. The optional Black Optics package available on the Premium Plus and higher trim comes with new 20-inch wheels and black accents. That said, if you are looking for a bit more style there is the 2022 Audi Q5 Sportback model.

Competition
8.0/10

2022 Audi Q5 vs 2022 BMW X3

The BMW X3 comes with lesser power and performance but the same capacity in towing. The BMW X3 also offers better MPG on the highway but comes with a smaller fuel tank offering a lesser driving range. The X3 does offer more cargo space than the Q5. However, you can have the X3 with RWD as well, which is cheaper than the Audi Q5.

2022 Audi Q5 vs 2022 Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 like the Mercedes-Benz GLC comes with less power, performance, and towing capacity. The fuel economy offered is less but it does offer a similar driving range thanks to the larger fuel tank. It also offers more cargo space than the Audi Q5. However, it is priced similar to the Volvo XC60 with the AWD drivetrain, but costs less than the Q5 when equipped with FWD.

Final Verdict

The 2022 Audi Q5 does come with quite a few changes compared to the 2021 model which brings more standard features even though this time it is focused on cosmetic updates. However, the 2022 Audi Q5 does come with a good amount of space and comfort on the interior along with an impressive performance quotient which is better than the competition. Along with this, there is the Quattro system that gives the Q5 unique driving dynamics, making it a good car to buy.

All weather SUV.

Pros - Plush cabin, Quattro system, Sport package.

Cons - Expensive to maintain.

Well laid out cabin. I have been driving an Audi Q5 for about 6 years now. I really gotta say this, it is the best car i have ever owned. It has the practicality and opulence of an SUV yet drives like a hatchback around the corners. The Quattro system gives amazing traction and confidence in the corners even during rainy conditions. Inside, everything is well appointed. The design of the dashboar...

A Massive let down from Audi.

Pros - Nothing good about it.

Cons - *Timing belt issues, multiple issues.

Disappointed with Audi. Considering its fantastic reputation on the online forums, I foolishly shelled out $25,330 for the 2016 Audi Q5. Guess what, it's compressor and camshaft broke down almost simultaneously. I have no idea how this happened but the dealer was rather quick at pointing fingers at me. That was the first red flag right there. I ignored it, but soon the timing belt slipped. Funnil...

Pros - Premium, Agile, Puncy.

Cons - Cargo space.

Cargo limit The Q5 is a fun SUV to drive with enough passenger room but I wish the trunk was larger. This car is also very premium and everything seems to be fit snugly. Premium dealership and a well trained team who carried themselves in a great manner.
