With the onset of the latest generation, the German marquee brand has improved the premium compact 2019 Audi Q5 in every conceivable way and it now gets all the interior technology you'd expect in this segment. While the powertrain options are still limited to the one standard 2.0L turbo engine, the interior of the Q5 remains one of its biggest and strongest suits.

For 2019, however, heated front seats, Audi Connect care, and the 7-inch instrument cluster are standard now. With an impressive palette of interior-wrapped colors, the 2019 Q5 starts off at an MSRP of $42,950. Coming to the trims on offer, the Premium Plus trim now gets the navigation system, wireless phone charger, and much more.

Moreover, with the Audi SQ5 now available in the lineup, certain additional features such as heated front and rear sport seats, and the Black optic package are also up for grabs. The Prestige trim settles for the ambient LED interior lighting as a new addition for this year. Notable rivals in the premium crossover include the Volvo XC60, BMW X3, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Class.

2019 Audi Q5 Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The interiors of the 2019 Audi Q5 are as modern as it gets in the segment, employing an elegant and minimalist design with some wood and silver trims in most areas. Build quality is among the best in the segment, with a focus on ergonomics and functionality. The new Virtual Cockpit completes the design, bringing a lot more functionality. As usual, if you plan on long journeys, then the Q5 is a four-seater in practice, although a fifth passenger can squeeze in if required.

The front seats are on the firmer side but the unique shape and bolstering provide plenty of comfort even for longer jaunts. The leather upholstery used is also plush enough, with heating and ventilation available as options. The rear seats are also spacious enough for three passengers, although the contours can make the middle passenger uncomfortable after a while. Three headrests are provided along with three-point seatbelts for all passengers.

The layered dashboard design still looks fresh and appealing with the floating information display in the middle and all the other controls integrated below it. The driver focus design also tilts the center console towards the driver. The chunky gear lever gets shortcut buttons near it along with a drive mode select. Depending on the trim level selected, the Q5 can be equipped with features like a panoramic sunroof and upgraded climate control. As standard, all models get a three-zone system with vents in both rows to keep the cabin comfortable.

2019 Audi Q5 Infotainment

Depending on the trim level, the 2019 Q5 infotainment system gets either a 7-inch or an 8.3-inch display with all the features you'd expect including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging, satellite radio, and more. The Premium Plus model gets an upgraded 10-speaker audio system, while the range-topping Prestige model swaps it out for a Bang & Olufsen surround sound system.

However, the most notable improvement is the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster which can display a wide range of information including navigation, phone controls, and more.

  • 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display
  • 8.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with MMI interface
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration
  • Bluetooth connectivity with voice control
  • Built-in navigation
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system

2019 Audi Q5 Cargo Capacity

The 2019 Audi Q5 still struggles as far as practicality is concerned, offering only 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats upright. The standard power liftgate allows easy loading, complemented by the low loading lip. To maximize capacity, the rear seats can be folded in a 40/20/40 split configuration, liberating up to 53.1 cubic feet of capacity.

While the Q5 has improved on the practicality front, providing plenty of capacity even with the rear seats up. However, both Volvo XC60 and BMW X3 still lead the pack, offering a lot more capacity, while the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class almost matches the Q5.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

While most of the interior is well designed, the central cupholders at the front are placed in an awkward position, making them harder to access. The door pockets are spacious with integrated bottle holders, while the central console storage also offers adequate space. A small smartphone tray is also provided with wireless charging functionality on the center console storage.

2019 Audi Q5 Creature Comforts

As with most Audi offerings, the Q5 continues to be available in three trim levels with some optional packages. Even the base Premium trim is loaded with luxuries like keyless entry, a powered liftgate, push-button start, leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated and power-adjustable seats, and reclining rear seats with the split-folding arrangement.

The Premium Plus model goes a step further with additions like driver-seat memory functions and a panoramic sunroof. Finally, the range-topping Prestige trim gets noise-insulated side windows, ambient cabin lighting, and more. The Q5 can also be equipped with stand-alone options like heated and ventilated front seats, rear-window sunshades, and more.

Final Verdict

As usual, the 2019 Q5 manages to offer the perfect balance between performance and sophistication. While you are limited to just one powertrain, the tech fest of a cabin will keep customers entertained for years to come without feeling outdated. As an overall package, the 2019 Audi Q5 is an ideal choice if you're in the market for a premium crossover.
