Review

The Audi Q5 is officially the brand's best-selling model, but the old car fell short of its Volkswagen Group stablemate, the Porsche Macan, for driving dynamics and ultimate thrills.

Can the new 2016 Q5 and its lengthy list of improvements make a bolder charge for the class crown? Autocar deputy editor Mark Tisshaw heads to the USA to find out.

Struggling to see whats different! It looks just like all the other boring germanic dated vehicles ! After 4 of them I have finally changed to an Evoque ... wonderful breath of fresh air ... and its British built!

Seriously? Who thought this chap would be good in a video? I'm sure you're a very nice person Mark but your voice isn't right for these videos - its so monotone and dull! Plus your opinion isn't an opinion - its like Siri reading the tech sheet out whilst moving the car around a dusty road.

Bring back Chris Harris!

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
