Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, a new GT trim replaces the Limited, adding a monochromatic exterior with sporty flourishes, and the base SXT can be ordered with just two rows of seats. Otherwise, there are only minor feature changes, including the new Anodized Platinum package with two-tone leather upholstery for the Citadel trim.

Pros
Unusually spacious third-row seats
8.4-inch touchscreen is one of the best in the class
Assertive acceleration with the V8 engine
Exceptional towing capacity for a crossover
Real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing.

Cons
Lackluster fuel economy (especially with the V8)
Bluetooth streaming audio isn't standard on SXT.

The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover--but crash test scores are a dull spot.
Somewhere in the grey zone between body-on-frame SUV and car-like crossover, sits the Dodge Durango. The 5- or 7-seater isn't exactly either: it's a unibody SUV with real towing ability, on the same blurry part of the spectrum as its stablemate, the Jeep Grand Cherokee (and the old Mercedes M- and GL-Class, too).

Pros
Hemi V-8 performance and character
Feels substantial and refined
Confident steering feel
V-6 gets engine stop-start

Cons
Third-row access is difficult
Ride can be busy
Gas mileage is so very low

The 2017 Dodge Durango ranks 8 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Dodge Durango has an abundance of cargo room, and its third row is one of the few in the class with sufficient space for adults. It has a comfortable, agile ride, and one of the highest towing capacities in the class. However, its upper trims can be pricier than those of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful optional V8 engine
Good cargo capacity
Intuitive infotainment system
Comfortable ride

Cons
Expensive upper trims
Poor fuel economy with V8

The 2017 Audi Q5 is a compact luxury SUV that makes you feel special with its handsome styling, elegant cabin and thrilling engines that won't cost you that much at the pump. It's small in size but big on luxury, and it should make you swell with pride when seeing it in your driveway.

The range-topping 3.0T Prestige now gets standard adaptive cruise control and Audi Drive Select vehicle settings. The 2.0T Premium Plus trim now gets standard 19-inch wheels.

The 2017 Audi Q5 soldiers into another model year as one of the most popular compact luxury SUVs, boasting a wide array of virtues designed to make you feel as if you're driving something beyond all those humdrum small SUVs out there. Its classic styling, well-crafted cabin and ample features combine to deliver nearly everything one expects from an SUV in this segment.

Sure, it has been on sale without a major redesign since 2009, but those who don't give a lick about having the latest technology features and controls won't mind. Besides, there's still a rearview camera available, along with keyless push-button start, a navigation system and a pretty impressive 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. We're also guessing that there are plenty of shoppers who will appreciate staring at the stars through the standard panoramic sunroof instead of fiddling with the latest gadgets and gizmos.

Pros
Top-notch interior craftsmanship
Unique sliding rear seat provides extra versatility
Refined driving character makes it feel expensive from behind the wheel
Understated styling that doesn't draw too much attention to itself
More standard features (including all-wheel drive) than its German-brand competitors.

Cons
No active accident-avoidance technologies available
Limited exterior color selection
No USB ports for charging or connecting a phone.

The 2017 Audi Q5 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Compact SUVs category. Currently the Audi Q5 has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 66 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

The 2017 Audi Q5 is one of the more expensive vehicles in the luxury subcompact class, but it offers luxurious interior appointments that are among the best in the class. The Q5 also offers comfortable and spacious seating. However, its interior isn't perfect. Its MMI infotainment system looks a little out of date when compared to rival systems, and some may wish it were available with a touch screen. Additionally, many competitors offer more standard and optional driver assistance features than the Q5.

Most drivers will be pleased with the Q5's performance. With three options, there's an engine for everyone, and even the base turbocharged four-cylinder delivers plenty of power. On the road, the Q5 is composed and can deftly handle twisty roads. Its standard all-wheel drive is a benefit on slick roads. Still, those seeking a cushy ride may be put off by the Q5's firmer suspension.

Pros
Spacious seats in both rows
Agile handling
Quick acceleration
Great safety scores

Cons
Rival infotainment systems have newer interfaces
Rivals offer more driver assistance features

The 2017 Audi Q5 soldiers on with good space and carlike handling; it's still one of the better luxury SUVs, despite its age.

Now in its ninth model year, the simple Q5 still looks handsome.
The hybrid is gone this year, which means performance ranges now from sensible to sensational.

The 2017 Audi Q5 makes the most of its available space, and boasts a highly refined interior.

The Audi Q5 has mixed safety scores, including a Top Safety Pick+ nod from the IIHS.

The 2017 Audi Q5 is handsomely equipped as standard, and it only goes up from there.

Despite being one of the older competitors in the segment, the Audi Q5 is fairly fuel efficient.

Pros
Enthusiastic base engine
Simple styling
8-speed automatic is quick
Good infotainment
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Gas mileage isn't class leading
Still a top-heavy crossover
Easy to spend more than $50,000
No efficiency leader

The new Audi Q5 improves an already competent package with sharper looks and new tech but can it beat the Jaguar F-Pace?

The new Q5 is strong enough in lots of key areas to be an even stronger contender in the hotly contested premium SUV class. It’s still not as involving as an X3 or an F-Pace, but it is an accomplished cruiser with a nicely finished cabin, and practical enough for most needs. We’ll hold off on a full five stars until we get full specs, including the crucial CO2 figures - but this is a very complete package, if a slightly predictable one.

The Audi Q5 has been one of the German brand’s best-selling models since it launched back in 2008. Now it’s getting an all-new generation - and Auto Express has driven a very late prototype as senior engineers gave the car the green light for production
