2010 Audi Q5 Overview

When it was new, critics appreciated the Q5’s combination of a luxurious interior and sure-footed handling, thanks to its standard Quattro all-wheel drive. It isn’t the most athletic vehicle in the group, and it doesn’t have the most spacious cabin and cargo hold, but most testers said it offered a good compromise between sport and utility.

The 2010 Audi Q5 is powered by a 270-horsepower V6 that critics said has plenty of power. With this engine, the Q5 earns fuel economy estimates of 18/23 mpg city/highway, which is marginally better than most competitors. Reviewers said the Q5’s suspension is refined and balances sporty handling with a comfortable ride. Maximum interior cargo volume with the rear seats folded is 57.3 cubic feet, which is about average for the class.

Reviewers were pleased with the interior design and build quality. Most found the interior roomy and comfortable, aside from a few gripes about the rear seat being cramped, which are common among compact SUVs. Standard equipment on all Q5 models includes leather upholstery, satellite radio, tri-zone climate control and Audi’s Multi Media Interface infotainment system. Features available as options or on upper trim levels include a power liftgate, rearview camera and Bang & Olufsen stereo. If you like the Q5 but want to save some money, you may be able to do so by buying an older model.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Volvo XC60 is a good alternative to the Q5. Critics praised the XC60 for having one of the largest cargo spaces in the class and a modern, tasteful interior, as well as innovative safety features. However, the Q5 gets better fuel economy than the XC60.

Another 2010 compact SUV you may like is the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK. Like the Q5, critics said the GLK is engaging to drive thanks to its powerful engine and athletic suspension.
