The 2016 Audi Q5 is certainly one of the best luxury compact SUVs money can buy in the segment. Big on luxury, from the feature-packed Q5 interior to also proving its worth on the performance front with the standard 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, the 2016 Q5 is back this year with plenty of upgrades. Changes to the tune of a standard panoramic sunroof, Audi telematics with the Premium trim, and optional adaptive suspension dampers with the Premium Plus trim are available with the 2016 Q5.

2016 Audi Q5 Buying Advice
The present Audi Q5 is still in its first generation which started off in 2009. Having said that, there is still a major update to be witnessed on the design front. Although, with the range of feature addition that goes on about every year, we would recommend a 2015 Audi Q5 model, as it offers the same list of features as the 2016 MY, but for a much more affordable price tag.
Furthermore, the Technology package also now includes the Bang & Olufsen audio system, among other features. Now, apart from the 2.0L on offer, Audi also offers a 272 hp V6 engine with the 3.0T Premium Plus and above trims. The Audi Q5 has always been known for its looks, premium cabin, and sorted driving dynamics along with its supreme long-term reliability, which accounts for fewer problems down the line.
