Expert Quotes:

2013 Audi Q5: 20/28 mpg, 23 mpg combined (2.0T); 18/26 mpg, 21 mpg combined (V-6); 24/30 mpg, 26 mpg combined (hybrid)
EPA





The Audi Q5 isn't among the best five-passenger crossovers for gas mileage, but fuel economy is up significantly this year with the addition of the new Hybrid model.

The Q5 Hybrid is rated by the EPA at 24 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, or 26 mpg combined. That's easily the best of the luxury-marque crossovers of its kind--but it's a few miles per gallon behind the non-hybrid, four-cylinder Chevy Equinox, at 32 mpg highway, for example. It's worth keeping in mind that all version of the Q5 do include standard all-wheel drive, however.

The V-6 Q5 is at the opposite end of the spectrum, at 18/26 mpg, or 21 mpg combined. Consider the lower fuel economy the cost of its best-in-lineup acceleration.

The base Q5 remains the best compromise for value and gas mileage. At 20/28 mpg, or 23 mpg combined, it's competitive in its class--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.

Conclusion

Gas mileage makes gains with the Audi Q5 Hybrid edition, but some mainstream crossovers pass it easily on the EPA scale.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
