Every trim variety has all-wheel drive as standard. They also have leather and other comfortable accents along with excellent technology features. Few other vehicles can achieve such a balance of power and comfort. The Q5 is priced slightly above the average for this class, but it also comes with a larger selection of standard features. That still leaves plenty of enhancements within the packages and trims, but it is true that the Q5 includes more as standard features than the competition, so it delivers excellent value.
What's New for 2019?
The last time the Audi Q5 line went through a major redesign was just a year ago in 2018. In 2019, the Q5 now has a new standard feature in heated front seats. There is also a new trim line that was not available in 2018. If you are not interested in the features in the Premium trim and you are willing to search for a used car, then it is possible to obtain a discount on a 2018 Q5. Going back any further means losing out on a significant number of new aspects of the redesign.
Choice of Styles
There are two main styles available for the 2019 Audi Q5, which are differentiated by their performance options. Each one has three trim levels that add on both different features and different package options. The base model is the Q5 and the performance-enhanced model is the SQ5. The SQ5 has differences at each trim that all point towards a sportier feeling, with support for harnessing the more advanced engine.
Choice of Trims
The first trim for the Q5 is the Premium. It has entirely leather upholstery throughout. The infotainment system has a display 7 inches across and contemporary attributes such as voice control, smartphone linkages, USB ports, and HD radio. The Premium also comes with Audi's suite of sensors and warnings, the Audi Pre Sense system. There is one package available for the Premium Q5- the Convenience package. It contains heated mirrors, keyless entry, and a few other pleasant additions.
For the SQ5, the Premium trim adds in upgraded leather and headlights, improved suspension, and a new climate control set. Otherwise, the feature list and packaging is the same as with the Q5 Premium.
The second trim for the 2019 Audi Q5 is the Premium Plus. It adds on a set of new features like a sunroof, parking assist, and other driver assist elements. There are two new packages available to buyers of the Premium Plus. The Warm Weather package has upgraded front seats and ventilation, and the Cold Weather package upgrades the rear seats and the wheel with heating capabilities.
The SQ5 Premium Plus has a significantly larger feature list. It has more driver assistance tools as well as performance upgrades. There is also a Sport package for more enhanced suspension and rear differential.
The Q5's top trim is the Prestige. It features a much larger sound system, a greatly expanded infotainment console, its own Wi-Fi hotspot, and other upgrades. The two weather packages are also still available.
The SQ5's top trim is also called the Prestige. It is similar to the Q5's Prestige, plus a few extra features like adaptive cruise control.
The powerful standard engine with 248 horsepower is strong and smooth to drive, but the upgraded engine that reaches 349 horsepower is on another level. It feels nothing like an SUV because of its acceleration and fluid handling. It feels weightless to drive. Riding in it is just as comfortable, especially with one or both of the weather packages. It is spacious and comes with plenty of support for modern entertainment.
The turning and cornering on the 2019 Audi Q5 are outstanding. The extensive automation and sensory features are appealing, but with such an agile vehicle, they can feel superflous.
The 2019 Audi Q5 makes 22 MPG on city driving and 27 for highway driving. This is right about on par with other SUVs of the same size. The heavier and more powerful optional engine will have slightly less fuel efficiency.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Audi Q5 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Audi Q5 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
