Audi Q5

Sharp styling and car-like handling make the Audi Q5 an appealing choice for those who want the practicality and status of a 4x4, but without the size or high running costs. It's much smaller than its big brother, the Audi Q7, but there's still plenty of space inside, and it's a lot easier to park. There's a good choice of engines and the appeal of the prestigious Audi badge on the bonnet - although the Audi Q5 is expensive.

The Audi Q5 isn't really designed for the kind of serious off-roading you might tackle in a Land Rover – it's more of a 'light' 4x4 that's aimed at drivers who are unlikely to take the car very far off road. It's a good looking car that's much more user-friendly than larger 4x4s. Inside, it's comfortable and spacious, while the interior is of exceptional quality – as you'd expect from an Audi. The engines are smooth and the driving experience is very comfortable, and it's well equipped, too.
