The Audi Q5 is as practical as you’d expect a mid-size SUV to be and it works really well as a family car. There’s enough space for four six-foot-tall adults to travel together in comfort, which means children should have loads of room to stretch out in the back. The middle back seat is a bit narrow, but that’s true of just about every other SUV. There are two sets of Isofix mounts for child seats in the back. These are easy to find and the Q5’s height means you can put a child into the car seat without bending down.
The boot has 550 litres of space – about average for this kind of car and more than enough for the needs of most families. All your stuff for a week-long holiday should slot in easily, or a couple of Labradors should be perfectly happy in there. The back seat folds down in three sections, freeing up a usefully large 1,550 litres of space. It’s also worth noting that the Q5 can tow 1,750kg to 2,400kg (depending on the model), which is quite a lot for this type of car.
