What's New

The 2020 Audi Q5 returns with some minor revisions. Every model now comes standard with new 18-inch wheels, all-season tires, and automatic high beams. The top two trims get updated 19-inch wheels, while package availability and feature content has been updated. Otherwise, it’s business as usual for Audi’s compact crossover.

A Q5 plug-in hybrid was announced earlier this year. While it's expected to reach the U.S. market, there are no hard details as to when this is happening.

Choosing Your Audi Q5

The Q5 is available in the three usual Audi trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Pricing starts at $44,295 including destination for the Premium and climbs to $52,445 for the Prestige.

Engine Choices

Every Audi Q5 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It generates 248 horsepower and 273-pound feet of torque, and achieves an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 24 combined.

A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission feeds power to Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system. The Q5 can tow up to 4,400 lbs with an available towing bracket.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Q5 offers seating for five passengers and 25.1 cubic feet of cargo volume. This expands to 53.1 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down.

Safety Features

Every Audi Q5 comes with automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning. The no-cost Convenience Package is a must, as it further adds blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and vehicle exit warning.

The Premium Plus adds front and rear parking sensors and the features from the Convenience Package as standard, while the Prestige is equipped with lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera system, a head-up display, and an automated parking system.


The base Q5 gets a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Two front USB ports, HD radio, and Bluetooth are included. The Premium Plus and Prestige upgrade to an 8.3-inch display with navigation and satellite radio, while two rear USB ports and wireless charging are also included.

Premium - From $44,295

Buyers of the most affordable Q5 benefit from leather upholstery, heat-insulating glass, three-zone climate control, and walnut wooden inlays. There's also heated and eight-way power front seats, push button start, ambient interior lighting, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Make sure to tick the boxes for the no-cost Convenience and Convenience Plus Packages to get more active safety features, keyless entry, satellite radio, memory for the driver's seat, auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors, and wireless charging. A panoramic sunroof is a $1,450 standalone option.

Premium Plus - From $48,695

The Q5 Premium Plus brings upgrades like a 12.3-inch driver information display, the upgraded infotainment system, and the aforementioned active safety features. Additional standard equipment includes the sunroof, memory for the driver's seat, and power-folding, heated, and auto-dimming side mirrors with memory functionality.

Buyers can bundle a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and all-weather floor mats with the Cold Weather Package ($750). Alternatively, those in warmer areas might opt for the Warm Weather Package ($1,450), which includes ventilated front seats and manual rear window sunshades.

Prestige - From $52,445

The Prestige is the first model to receive a 19-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system as standard, while the steering wheel gains power tilt and telescopic adjustment with memory. Don't forget about the standard head-up display, surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and automated parking system, either.

CarsDirect Tip

Technology fans will undoubtedly be drawn to the 12.3-inch driver information display and larger touchscreen with navigation that come with 2020 Audi Q5 Premium Plus models. Still, the base Premium trim is hardly short on creature comforts, and it's $4,400 cheaper.

Classic luxury. The 2020 Audi Q5 is exactly what most people think of when they picture a luxury crossover SUV. All models are equipped with real leather, power-adjustable and heated front seats, high-quality materials, and well-positioned wood and metal inlays. Hard plastic surfaces are scarce, and there is plenty of room for four adults (five will fit in a pinch).

Audi clearly thinks that subtly is the name of luxury and that evocative looks are for the plebs. Inside and out, you’ll find nothing offensive, but offerings from Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, and Mercedes-Benz tend to stand out a bit more in the Whole Foods parking lot.

Potent powerplants. The Q5 is now offered with three different engine choices, including the powerful SQ5 (covered separately). Base Q5 models get a 248-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that's never wanting for power. Combined with one of the best dual-clutch automatic transmissions available and Audi’s signature Quattro all-wheel drive, the Q5 delivers consistent traction, quick acceleration, and a 4,400-pound tow rating.

Audi has also upped the ante for 2020 with a plug-in hybrid variant that adds an additional 141-hp electric motor and 14.1-kWh battery pack to the base model’s 2.0-liter turbo-four.

This gives the Q5 an electric-only range of 20 miles, according to the EPA, while boasting a top charging time of 2.5 hours. The party really starts when the gas engine kicks in, as the combined power of both motors can take your breath away.

A technological marvel. The Audi Q5 is equipped with compelling technology at all trim levels that's integrated far more intuitively than we’ve experienced in competing models.

Basic Q5s receive keyless entry, some active safety features, a large infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 7-inch digital instrument cluster. That’s quite a lot to start with compared to many luxury crossovers.

As you would expect, it gets better the more you spend. Higher trim levels get Audi’s excellent Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the instruments with a brilliant 12.3-inch configurable display with two modes, as well as a larger 8.3-inch infotainment screen that adds voice control and navigation.

Audi Q5

Top trim models may be pricey, but buyers are rewarded with an excellent Bang and Olufsen audio system, adaptive cruise control, and a head-up display.

Straightforward options. Unlike many German luxury cars where the price starts rising if you even glance at the options sheet, the Q5 is refreshingly easy to spec. Upgrades are generally baked into their respective trim levels, and the actual number of options are scarce. Even the Premium Plus, the most option-heavy trim, only has six boxes to check that inflate the price.

The weirdest thing about the Q5’s options is the no-cost options on the base Premium model. The Convenience Package and Convenience Plus package are both considered packages, even if they don’t cost anything and are full of desirable features.

While we would expect most dealership models to include these packages in their Premium models, it would be prudent to check the Monroney label to be sure when shopping for a Q5.

Solid marks for safety. The Q5 has done very well in federal and independent crash testing. The IIHS named it a Top Safety Pick, while NHTSA awarded it a five-star overall safety rating due to how well it held up in collisions.

Also noteworthy is the active safety technology, which includes standard low-speed automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, and even a vehicle exit warning that will warn you against opening your doors into oncoming traffic are part of the aforementioned Convenience Package.

Higher trim levels get more advanced features like adaptive cruise control and automatic parking. However, these aren’t the best safety features we’ve seen from Audi, so there's some room for improvement.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Audi Q5 is the most popular vehicle in the brand's lineup, and one of the best-selling luxury crossover SUV models on the market. It isn’t difficult to see why either, as it's comfortable, filled with cutting-edge technology, inoffensively designed, and decidedly upscale. It’s the benchmark for luxury crossover SUVs that everyone else is trying to improve upon, but few can offer the full package like Audi does.

If speed is in your blood, the SQ5 may be worth the upgrade with it’s potent turbocharged V6 and performance tuning. Those looking for something a bit sleeker and more evocative would be served well by the Jaguar F-Pace, while the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class stands out with its beautiful interior.
