20 mpg city, 27 highway (2.0T); 18 mpg city, 23 highway (3.2)
The 2012 Audi Q5 hits a sweet spot for performance and fuel economy in its 2.0T form, but it still doesn't weigh up against mainstream models, many of which top 30 mpg on the highway.
It's worth keeping in mind that all version of the Q5 do include quattro all-wheel drive, however. And we've seen solid numbers near the higher end of the combined figure (24 mpg) in a mix of spirited city and highway driving.
The 3.2-liter version comes with EPA fuel economy figures of just 18 mpg city, 23 highway—low for such a compact vehicle.
The 2012 Q5 performs well and is reasonably fuel-efficient--provided you get the 2.0T model.
