Don’t Rush to This Redesign Just Yet

The Audi Q5, all new for 2018, is the top-scoring vehicle in our luxury compact SUV rankings, handily topping the likes of the Porsche Macan and Jaguar F-Pace. The previous Q5 was good, but reviewers agree that this model is even better, providing a satisfying combination of power and agility. The arrival of this fully redesigned model has surely caught the eye of some owners of older Q5s who are looking to trade up, but that is a decision that should not be made in haste. At a starting price of $41,500, the Q5 is not exactly cheap, though it does come with a long list of standard features.

If the Audi Q5 is so good, you might ask, why wait? It’s a fair question. Current or previous owners of the Q5 will almost certainly be happy with the new generation, but a significant purchase like this deserves careful consideration. To ensure you’re truly satisfied with your purchase, you should make sure it’s the absolute best option for you.

Here are some of the other vehicles on the market you should cross-shop against the Audi Q5, based on the luxury compact SUV’s strengths and weaknesses.
