The Audi Q5 can be called a legend despite the many criticisms of this car. Of course, now the market is no longer the brutal model that aroused the envy and respect of other road users, but still close attention to this car from the outside is guaranteed. In dealer showrooms, the car is sold in four trim levels at a price of 4,145,000 - 4,895,000 rubles. However, this is not the limit of the cost of the car, since due to special stages it can be almost doubled, depending on the equipment. Audi Q5 2022 in the Russian market competes with Porsche Macan, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
If it is difficult to surprise a true motorist with trim levels and looks, then the impressive technical characteristics will definitely not let him pass by the model, especially when it comes to the Audi Q5 2022 crossover, which is sold in Russia in the new FY body. Of course, the prices for cars bite and not everyone can pull them, but still not to pay attention to the elegant exterior of the car, which can be estimated from the photo in the article, and not to dream of buying - it will not work.
What Audi cars are loved for is their variety. Like any other car of the German brand, this SUV is offered to customers with different power units and technical characteristics.

In variations with this setting, the model is equipped with a 7-speed "robot". Average consumption - 7, 7 liters. gasoline AI-95, acceleration to "hundreds" from a standstill - in 6, 2 seconds, "maximum speed" - 240 km / h.
If you need a high-torque and powerful cross, which will show itself well not only in the city, but also on the off-road, it is better to take a closer look at the model with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel for 249 "horses" and 600 N * m of thrust, especially since this ICE is less capricious with proper operation. With such an installation, the crossover easily gains a hundred in 7, 7 s, and also accelerates to a maximum speed of 237 km / h. An average of 7, 2 liters of diesel fuel will go per 100 km of run. In this modification, an 8-speed Tiptronic “automatic” is put on the cross.
For its class, the "German" has not the most impressive dimensions: in length the cross reaches 4,682 mm, in width - 1,893 mm, in height - 1,662 mm. For a relatively short body, it has an impressive wheelbase of 2,820 mm and a ground clearance of 200 mm. Hybrid versions weigh 1,795 kg, while modifications with turbodiesels weigh 1,915 kg.

The Audi Q5 2022 crossover is a car that guarantees the driver and passengers safety, which is fully confirmed by the results of crash tests using the Euro NCAP system. The model was tested on four main parameters, where the cross scored an overall rating corresponding to a rating of five stars. In terms of safety for the driver and adult passengers, this is almost the best car in the class. He received a rating of 33, 2 points or 92%. In terms of safety for child passengers, the model is slightly inferior to some classmates. Her result is 41 points or 84%. Also, the cross shows good indicators for the equipment with security technologies - 71 percent. The only thing that is lame in this regard is the protection of pedestrians and other vulnerable road users with a score of 32% or 5 points.
Handling and off-road performance
The Audi Q5 was often criticized for its powertrains and transmission, but almost no one spoke negatively about the car's handling and off-road performance. Of course, this is not any frame SUV, but the model will be able to guarantee positive emotions to the owner both on public roads with a hard surface, and in the snow, or off-road. Four-wheel drive, 200 mm ground clearance and competent suspension tuning did their job, allowing the "German" to feel comfortable outside the city. Serious obstacles should not be taken into account, but the car will cope with standard obstacles with a bang. This is especially true of diesel variations, since hybrids with a "robot" are less adapted for country trips.
Before the release of the Audi Q5 in the current version, the manufacturer was faced with the task of bringing to the market a comfortable car that will delight its owner with excellent handling. In general, the team of German engineers coped with the task. The cross really turned out to be interesting in this regard. The model can be praised for its stability on the road during sharp maneuvers, dynamics and responsiveness to the steering wheel. At the same time, the stiffness of the suspension deserves a little criticism, which makes itself felt in sharp collisions with large bumps or speed bumps.
Advantages and disadvantages
It is not difficult to guess that this German car has many advantages, which certainly prompts the thought of buying. However, before that, you should pay attention to some obvious shortcomings so that the car does not seem like an ideal choice for the future owner. Here you can immediately highlight the cost. Cross is very expensive and only a few can afford it. The same can be said for maintenance costs. Another disadvantage in the not very successful combination of hybrid and "robot". The operation of this installation will have to be approached with care, otherwise it will subsequently be possible to face expensive repairs.
So that motorists have no doubts about this car and its high cost, a few words should be said about the advantages of the car. In particular, we are talking about a model that has shown impressive safety. We cannot ignore the cross-country ability of the machine, which is comparable to the performance of some frame frames. Well, in addition, we can say about moderate fuel consumption, which, if properly operated, will correspond to the values declared by the manufacturer.
The appearance of the Audi Q5 in the FY body has ceased to be as brutal as in previous generations, but at the same time a certain charm and silhouette of the first variations has been preserved, complemented by newfangled design solutions. The updated exterior of this car, to put it mildly, is not for everyone's taste, since not everyone likes a car licked around the perimeter with spectacular aggressive elements on the front side. At the same time, if you take the base model as an example, it looks more mundane and recognizable, guaranteeing the owner the opportunity to stand out from the background of the general traffic flow. Salon "German" still combines practicality, quality and competent study to the smallest detail. Unlike competitors, it is impossible to single out something special here that could cause incredible emotions. The arrangement is made with an emphasis on quality and comfort, so that the driver, once inside, plunges into a pleasant atmosphere and can escape from everyday problems. The design is made in a combined style with a spectacular inclusion of unobtrusive decor elements.
Q5 can be called a long-liver of the Russian market. The first generation model was presented in April 2008. Now on sale in dealerships there is a crossover in the back of the FY in the second generation in a restyled version. It premiered in June 2020 and went on sale in March 2021.
When asking the price of Q5, Russians can also pay attention to their classmates:
- Porsche Macan;
- BMW X3;
- Land Rover Discovery Sport;
- Mercedes-Benz GLK.
