2022 Audi Q5 vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Audi Q5 competes against a slew of luxury crossovers that tempt buyers’ wallets like a Vegas casino.

The BMW X3 is a compelling pick because it’s a complete machine; every configuration is considered and comfortable.

The GLC-Class took an off-road turn last year, but it’s still the most elegant of the bunch and available in many different configurations.

The Volvo XC60 is a little long in the tooth but still good-looking and easy to drive.

The Acura RDX has a turbo-4 powertrain and 10-speed automatic that we like.

Its infotainment? Not so much.

The Cadillac XT5 is OK but lacks a standout feature that we adore.
