The 2018 Audi Q5 has been named winner of the 2018 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy in the luxury SUV category, in addition to receiving the 2018 Kelly Blue Book Best Auto Tech Award in the luxury category.
The annual Best Buy Awards from Kelley Blue Book recognize the top new model-year vehicle choices available in the U.S. market. The third annual Kelley Blue Book Best Auto Tech Awards honor models with the most advanced infotainment, convenience and active driver assistance features at a great value to car buyers.
“This wasn't an easy choice. There were several excellent contenders in this category, including the stellar Mercedes-Benz GLC. Both are well-executed compact luxury SUVs with versatile, high-quality interiors, driving flair, beautiful style, and thoughtful attention to detail. But key factors gave the Q5 the advantage,” said KBB about the Puebla-made SUV, highlighting its refined driving experience, tech-friendly cabin and exterior design.
“Where the other lux SUVs here stand out in certain aspects, the Audi seems to hit every one of them, and hit them at or near the bull’s-eye. This thing is just so good at just about everything. That you can get all of that capability, excellence and an extensive cache of safety and convenience features is why we selected the Q5 as our 2018 Luxury SUV Best Buy,” concludes the review.
