New for 2019

The Q5 added the following features as standard: heated front seats, rear electric child locks, Audi Connect Care, a 7.0-inch instrument panel display, and roof crossbars. The Premium Plus trim level now includes a navigation system, two rear seat USB charging ports, and a wireless phone charger. A self-parking system is now standard on the Prestige trim. A Black Optic package is newly available and the Convenience package now includes blind-spot monitoring and Audi Pre Sense Rear. Lastly, the SQ5 is now available in the Premium trim.

Trim Levels

Audi's Q5 is positioned above the smaller Q3 but below the larger Q5, Q7, and Q8 crossovers.

2019 Audi Q5 and SQ5 Premium: The base Q5 comes standard with all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, LED taillights, crossbars, a 7.0-inch center display with a rotary dial and control pad, a 7.0-inch instrument panel display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated front seats, dark brown walnut wood inserts, push-start ignition, eight-way power driver's seat, interior ambient lighting, and automatic emergency braking (Pre Sense City).

The SQ5 Premium includes what the Q5 Premium has and adds an upgraded engine, unique 20-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension system, leather and Alcantara upholstery, heated 12-way power front sport seats, a flat-bottom sport steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, a Platinum Gray grille, and a unique front and rear fascias.

2019 Audi Q5 and SQ5 Premium Plus: Building off the Q5 Premium trim, the Premium Plus trim adds 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, a wireless phone charger, vehicle exit assist, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a navigation system.

Building off the Q5 Premium Plus and SQ5 Premium, the SQ5 Premium Plus adds an 8.3-inch center touchscreen.

2019 Audi Q5 and SQ5 Prestige: The top Prestige trim includes the Q5 Premium Plus' content and adds 20-inch wheels, an 8.3-inch center display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, Traffic Jam assist, a power adjustable steering column, a head-up display, a self-parking system, a surround-view camera system, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system.

The SQ5 Prestige builds off the SQ5 Premium Plus and adds the media and safety tech from the Q5 Prestige.

The newly available Black Optic package includes 20-inch wheels with a titanium matte finish, matte black roof rails, and titanium black exterior trim.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The all-wheel-drive Q5 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four that produces 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and delivers an EPA-rated 22/27 mpg city/highway. The SQ5's 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 makes 349 hp and 369 lb-ft and is rated at 19/24 mpg. Although the Q5 uses a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission, the SQ5's is an eight-speed regular automatic.

Safety

The 2019 Audi Q5 earned the NHTSA's highest overall safety rating of five stars and received the highest rating of Good in all IIHS crash tests. In the front crash prevention test, the highest rating of Superior was issued because the crossover properly warned the driver, avoided a 12-mph collision, and reduced a 25-mph collision by 21 mph thanks to the standard automatic emergency braking system (Pre Sense City).

The Q5 Premium comes standard with Audi Pre Sense Basic (initiates preventative safety measures like pretensioning the seatbelts, activating the hazard lights, and closing the windows in evasive maneuvers or in a frontal collision), Pre Sense City, and a rearview camera. The Premium Plus trim adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, vehicle exit assist, front and rear parking sensors, and Pre Sense Rear. The Prestige adds a self-parking system, a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, Traffic Jam assist, and traffic sign recognition.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2019 Q5 and SQ5 have 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 53.1 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Front and rear legroom is 41.0 and 37.8 inches, respectively. The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class offers 19.4 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats and 56.5 with the seats folded down. Front legroom measures 40.8 inches and rear legroom is 37.3 inches.

Technology

The base Q5 Premium includes a 7.0-inch instrument panel display, a 7.0-inch central display with a rotary dial and control pad, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and two USB ports. The Premium Plus trim adds a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a navigation system. The top Prestige trim includes a head-up display, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, handwriting-recognition technology, an 8.3-inch central display, two 64 GB SD card slots, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

What We Think

During 2018 SUV of the Year testing, judges loved the SQ5 on the handling track and the Q5's digital instrument cluster and high-end interior. But we felt the premium crossover "…doesn't move the needle in terms of Audi design and engineering," and that kept it from advancing to the finalist stage. Additionally, the driving experience is dull. The SQ5 improved the picture, but is still bested by the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe.

In a First Test of the 2018 Audi Q5 2.0, we liked the crossover's improved performance, quick and smooth transmission, and the unobtrusive stop/start system. The ride quality is excellent and the cabin is very quiet. During off-road testing, the Q5 performed almost flawlessly, never getting stuck, even when stopping in sand and halfway up a hill. We concluded by saying, "With legions of folks who already were snapping up the Q5 for their own reasons, everything Audi did to this vastly improved 2018 version will certainly keep it at the top of Audi's charts. With improved nonlozenge exterior styling, performance, and efficiency along with a greatly improved interior with more room and features and unimpeachable off-road abilities, even more people will find it attractive."
