With so many different compact luxury crossovers on the market it helps to know there’s one model out there that has you covered in every way, no matter what. Better yet, it’s all-new this year, and has already won Kelley Blue Book’s 2017 luxury SUV “Best Buy” as well as “Best Auto Tech” awards. That vehicle is the 2018 Audi Q5, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to its accomplishments in the first year of its new generation!

Originally released in 2009, the first generation Q5 quickly went on to become Audi’s bestselling vehicle globally. Ever since the 2018 model went on sale—featuring a familiar shape wrapped in the brand’s latest styling cues—its sales have only risen. This past October, the Q5 contributed to a new sales record for the Four Rings alongside the new A5 and Q7.

But in addition to sales success, as well as being named to two Best Buy listings, the Q5 is also one of eight new Audi models that have been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Owed to the German automaker’s commitment to offering the most demanded safety technologies right out of the gate, the 2018 Q5’s standard pre sense city and basic packages, as well as the additional driver assistance features offered on higher trims make it a solid pick for value-conscious shoppers.

Exciting as the available systems with Audi Connect with Virtual Cockpit, a heads-up display, and adaptive cruise control are, the 2018 Q5 excels at utility, as well. A new quattro with ultra all-wheel drive system builds on the legendary system’s philosophy of maintaining traction before wheel slip can occur by adding an intelligent component to save fuel. But rest assured, even though the system drives the front wheels predominantly, the rear wheels can be brought into play when needed, or if you switch to a more playful driving style. Rounded out by standard leather furnishings, a spacious interior, and 60 cubic feet of max cargo volume, it may be difficult to go wrong with this SUV.
