Our guide to which trim level might suit you FROM launch, this high-power 187bhp 2.0 TDI is the only diesel en­gine avail­able in the new Q5. But it’s of­fered on all trim lev­els in the reg­u­lar line-up. In­ci­den­tally, there’s also a petrol-pow­ered V6 turbo SQ5 at the top of the range that fo­cuses on per­for­mance.

Go for the TDI, as most buy­ers are likely to, and on a 36-month PCP deal lim­ited to 10,000 miles per year, with a £4,500 de­posit on the en­try-level SE, the Q5 costs £453 per month. But you don’t get sat-nav, mak­ing the Sport worth the ex­tra £15 per month.

Above this, our S line-spec test car will cost you £495 per month, and brings LED lights, larger 19-inch al­loys and sportier styling. While the S line is def­i­nitely the sharpest-look­ing choice, Sport trim of­fers the best bal­ance be­tween cost and kit. Our choice: 2.0 TDI quat­tro Sport S tronic
