    Should I buy one?

    The new Q5 has so much going for it: it’s quiet, comfortable, lovely to sit in and well equipped. Anyone who buys one will do so for one or all of those reasons and not be disappointed with what is a very impressively engineered car. It will likely be competitively priced too, when it comes to India in the second half of 2017, with local assembly expected at Audi’s Aurangabad facility. But it’s just not that much fun to drive, which is a bigger shame in the Q5’s case as you can tell it has a mighty fine chassis just waiting to be tuned in a more involving way. If Audi doesn’t do it itself with the SQ5, you bet Porsche will with the next Macan.
