Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Infiniti QX60 is an elegant, and simple, solution for families looking for a luxury crossover.

Pros
Conservative, and classy exterior
Good standard equipment
Spacious second row
Rich and uncluttered interior

Cons
Frustrating optional packages
Advanced safety is an expensive proposition
Aging powertrain
Rear end could use a lift

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the QX60 adds Rear Door Alert, a standard feature that can remind drivers of passengers, pets, or objects possibly left behind after switching off the ignition. Sensors can detect if a rear door was opened prior to driving and can issue an alert if a rear door isn't opened at the end of the drive

PROS
Quiet, comfortable cabin makes for a soothing ride
Offers easy access to third-row seats
Smooth transmission operation adds to luxurious feel
Plush ride quality makes long trips enjoyable

CONS
Third-row legroom is tight for adults
Off-road capability isn't part of its formula
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Infiniti QX60 ranked #17 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Infiniti QX60 has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 43 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Spacious, comfy seating for seven
Straightforward infotainment system with lots of USB ports
Above-average fuel economy

Cons
No smartphone integration available
History of below-average reliability

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

By:

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
