The Q5 Hybrid is a new addition to the Audi lineup, having arrived late in 2012. Its 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine pairs with an electric motor to produce a combined 245 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.
The 0 to 60 mph dash takes only 6.8 seconds, and impressive fuel efficiency ratings of 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway belie the hybrid's 4,431-pound curb weight.
Like all Audis, the Q5 Hybrid boasts handsome exterior styling. The downward slope of the roofline does, however, limit usable cargo space. Three-zone automatic climate control comes standard, as does leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof.
