All-New for 2018, and a KBB Best Buy
The all-new Audi Q5 arrives for 2018 with a tailored exterior, arguably the best-looking interior in the segment, sedan-like performance, and segment-leading technology that's a snap to use. The Q5 is a pleasure to drive, whether you're on a casual Sunday tour or tackling a twisty canyon road. Bridging the gap between the sportier BMW X3 and the more languid Lexus NX, the Q5 is an excellent all-around luxury SUV, which we named our Kelley Blue Book Luxury SUV Best Buy of 2018.
"The new Q5 strikes a lovely balance between an X3 and GLC, with a personality we'd summarize with the word 'confident.' When we pushed the new Q5 hard on mountain roads, its manners felt more sports sedan than crossover SUV. In both around-town driving and highway stretches, the Q5 is quiet and comfortable."

The SQ5 is for SUV buyers who want the thrills of a sport sedan but have the responsibilities that require cargo-carrying and all-season performance. The Audi SQ5 has a sport suspension that makes it the best handling Q5 available, and is powered by a fantastic 354-horsepower supercharged V6 that will rocket the SQ5 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. The SQ5 also has attractive styling cues that set it apart from the rest of the Q5 line.
Build and Price
The Q5 starts at just under $43,000 and stretches above $63,000 for the Prestige, optioned with all the bells and whistles. (A fully loaded SQ5 can cost over $72,000.) Build and price your own 2018 Audi Q5 to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
