What the Critics Say

"Taller, stronger, and packed with fancy tech, the new 2018 Audi Q5 should continue to stand out in this uber-popular segment." - Motor Trend

"At first glance, the 2018 Audi Q5 doesn't seem all that different than its predecessor. But upon closer inspection, it turns out that the new Q5 -- the first entry in the vehicle's second generation -- is bigger, sleeker, faster, lighter and just plain better than the first-generation version we've been admiring since its debut for the 2009 model year." - Autotrader
