We like the look of the Q5, but then again it follows the same design language of eveyr other Audi model. Overall, the design changes from 2017 to 2018 are quite small; the most significant changes occur underneath the hood and in the detailing.
Change is more noticeable on the inside. The cabin is as beautiful as you would expect with Audi, offering standard leather seats, logically-arranged controls, and a fixed central display screen that replaces the outgoing model's retractable one. Still, the new display design is a bit odd as it looks like a tablet computer held in place with a clip. As before, Audi’s tech system requires some acclimation.
The front seats are comfortable and supportive. The rear seat is roomy for two adults, but the center position is there for a pinch – there simply isn’t enough hip room for three. Standard cargo space behind the second-row seat measures a modest 26.8 cubic feet, but it expands to 60.4 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.
