40. AUDI Q5
EVOLUTION is key to the latest Audi Q5, which takes the best parts of its predecessor and improves on its performance and efficiency.
You’d be forgiven for missing the new car, as it looks so similar to the last one, but a raft of hi-tech kit boosts its appeal. The rapid SQ5 returns, this time with petrol rather than diesel power, although we think the regular versions are better because they’re more comfortable and refined. Four-wheel drive is offered on a number of Q5s.
