Considering the acceleration figures, the 2018 Audi Q5 isn't the best performer amongst the competitors and takes its time to reach 60MPH from naught. Even in the quarter-mile run, the car is an average performer and won't pin any excitement meter around. The fastest car of the lot is 2018 BMW X5 which is just a tad bit quicker than the 2018 Audi Q5 and does the 0-60 MPH run in 4.9 seconds. It also reaches the quarter-mile mark faster than the 2018 Audi Q5.
During our emergency braking test, 2018 Audi Q5 takes forever to come to a complete stop. The brake pedal is on the tighter side and the feedback is minimal. Even though the car stops in a no-nonsense manner it is relatively the slowest to stop from 60MPH to zero amongst the competitors. The 2018 Audi Q3 takes a meager 80 feet to halt from 60MPH which is a lot quicker than any other rival in the segment.
