2011 Audi Q5 Fuel Economy

6.0
On Fuel Economy
In V-6 form, the Q5 performs well but sure isn't very fuel-efficient. The 3.2-liter version comes with EPA fuel economy figures of just 18 mpg city, 23 highway—embarrassingly low for such a compact vehicle.

Luckily, the Q5 performs nearly as well with the new 2.0T engine and eight-speed automatic—and achieves EPA numbers of 20 mpg city, 27 highway.

In a recent drive of the Audi Q5 2.0T, we achieved an average of nearly 24 mpg in an equal mix of rather spirited city and highway driving, essentially matching its EPA figures—and putting it near the head of its class based on our real-world experience with compact crossovers.

With a new, more fuel-efficient 2.0T engine this year, the 2011 Audi Q5 gets much greener.
