Audi Q5 2021 review - better than a BMW X3 & Mercedes GLC?


694 хил. показвания118

    Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
    This is the updated Audi Q5!
    It may only be a facelift rather than an all-new model, but the question is - does the new Q5 have what it takes to stand out and gain your attention over key competitors like the Mercedes GLC & BMW X3?
    Well for starters, it certainly looks the part! Sure, it’s not that different to the old model, but you still get a couple of nice changes, including a wider grille at the front and LEDs as standard (with the option to get Matrix LEDs if you choose a higher-spec model).
    When it comes to performance, the range-topper is a hybrid 2-litre turbo petrol, which combined with the electric motor will deliver 370hp! It’s also worth remembering that all models come with AWD as standard, as well as an automatic gearbox… But then again, would you expect anything else?!
    So what do you think - can the Q5 really take on the GLC and X3? Or would you choose the Mercedes or BMW instead? You’ll have to keep watching to see which you should go for!

      2. Pradeep N

        Q5 for sure! I own the 2020 and it hasn't disappointed

      3. Kannaya Suman

        @carwow as a SQ5 owner I'd say Q5 😀

    2. sea eagle

      I am astounded that Audi has a entertainment system stuck on top of the dashboard like an afterthought. It is horrible, it looks lazy as if they couldnt be bothered to redesign the dashboard to incorporate it in a more elegant way. If I could afford it I still wouldnt buy it because of that. Shame on you Audi.

    3. Spiderman

      Why does Mat Watson always throws things around in the review cars, and handle the car controls so roughly? Man what do you want to prove with such arrogance? And what's that ugly habit of checking fake exhaust with dirty tree branches? Sheer arrogance :(

    4. davson ed

      C'mon, the review of the glc is from 2016, do the review of the new version please

    5. David

      Audi aren't making some safety features standard ?🤦‍♂️ and did he say plug your phone in ? Wtf audi with how expensive this cars , they couldn't make Android auto wireless connection . Waste of money to buy this SUV . Give me a top of the line Kia Telluride

    6. Mad Mike

      i will buy the car only 4 the sound system

      1. Mad Mike

        @Strictly Business’ yes it is.. i have it in my house.. 600 watts of pure awesomeness

      2. Strictly Business’

        The B&O system is amazing! Not sure if it’s the acoustic glass but it sounds better in this years 2021 Q5 than some other Audi models equipped with the upgraded system.

    7. Finnspirit

      Hi Mat and carwow crew! Could you please make a new and updated review of Mercedes EQC? Thank you in advance for the answer!

    8. Yannis Gekas


    9. bertito43

      I wonder when the gv70 comes out how will it compared

    10. jolan Grencio


    11. Yngwie Martin

      The Mexican Q5 is more expensive than the German way !

    12. David Olyott

      Coz I'm Mat Watson, and this is Carwow. I tried to subscribe a second time.

    13. Sandro

      That's a car or a shoe box .... It is VERY boring to watch, but I imagine the driving is correct and good. But I wouldn't buy it.

    14. Volodymyr Kovalchuk

      Nice review. 32 MPG equals 7.35 L/100 km. Which is actually awesome for a car like this with powerful tubro-4. Given that the modern diesel motors are cut in power due to environment regulations, for most people I guess 2.0T would be the most adequate choice if you average 20-25 thousand KM per year. If you do more than 50 thousand km, then the economy from diesel will be more substantial. However I doubt it is very important in 50-60k USD car.

    15. Rigoberto Garza

      4:20 nice check engine light!

      1. Yashar

        It’s because the engine is off and he has the accessories on. It shows the check engine light till you turn in the car.

    16. Larry David

      Is it me, but the more i watch Mat, i wonder why he was never an option for Top Gear!

    17. Pablo

      All German cars are dreadful.

    18. Alteregosens Lucas

      Sorry to say, but it’s another boring Audi car. Only interesting are RS. THANK YOU BMW, at least they brought some standards.

    19. Hunter Halcombe

      13:27 this is why I love this channel so much, hhahahahaaha

    20. Bboy RSA

      disliking the video thanks to the orgy of ads.

    21. الحقيقة

      If you’re watching this video I hope you get this car and achieve all of your dreams

    22. Ron Mathew

      Can you please carry out a comparison review with the new 2021 Range Rover Velar?

    23. Hassan Ali

      i hope mat mentions his height when sitting in the back because i am 6,6 278 pounds and i wanna know if i fit there or not 😂

    24. Georgii Tam

      Damm audi is so bad in the interior. It look likes an audi from 2012 Audi don't go back the past we want future. Very Very sad 😥

    25. Reza Alemi

      Please do a dragrace with Audi TTRS and Mercedes Benz AMG A45s

    26. Simon Simon

      A hideous, vulgar monstrosity: ideal for the greedy riff-raff snobs with nothing better to spend their money on!!

    27. Joe Perry

      People complaining about the load floor lift over until it saves them from a jar of pickles that rolled out and shattered on the garage floor. I’ll take the lifting a few inches.

    28. Valkyness

      Can we get a review of the updated Mercedes GLC/coupe and BMW X3

    29. Millionaire

      The new Genesis GV70 makes many of these midsized level SUVs look rather boring 🤔. The GV70 has the wow factor with Japanese reliability to boot!

    30. Mike Carr

      14:15 "This is the voice of the Mysterons..."

    31. Parm H

      Is it 550 liter in boot or 520???

    32. Andy Bils

      Them pesky pop out banners are still missing? But work on other channels fine 🤔

    33. evan chikuta

      I hate how ignorant of ACTUAL car technology and product design Matt is. Every "review" he does is riddled with criticisms of things that are inarguably merits of the vehicle. 🤦🏾‍♀️ In what world is a boot lip a problem? After all these years, he STILL doesn’t know that a load lip serves to stop things rolling out of your boot (especially when parked at an incline)??? Matt is NOT a motoring journalist. He’s a car salesman-cum-crappy-youtuber. 😖😖 p.s. Only performance fanboys and zealots care about fake body work! The average consumer only cares that it looks good. 🤷‍♀️

    34. A A

      Don’t like it, never did, never will.

    35. İslam Şeyxzamanlı

      When they are gonna do İnterior like Q7 or Q8?

    36. Chris Clark

      Congratulations Mat Watson for finding 20 mins of things to say about an impossibly dull car.

    37. impete r

      Any South Africans here?

    38. Baba

      13:25 I am dead man

    39. sky works

      Sorry Audi, just stupid to make the system only touch screen. I drive the 2018 Audi A4 which had the same interior then the pre facelift Q5 and the system is much more easy to use and more important safe. I never need to streech my had. What where you thinking Audi. For that I would never upgrade to only touch screen since I just hate it.

    40. Ash S

      Those slots in the glove box are for SD cards btw

    41. Joyful4life

      Can they start making car interiors all black.. its very dingy!.. try some bright colours maybe?

    42. HROtakuReviews

      The little slit in the center console storage is actually for the key fob itself. At least, that's what it was like in the A4 I drove. Otherwise, it's pretty pointless. lol.

    43. Bodyrocker888

      He was in the woods a long time..... me thinks he met a bear..... 🌈 😉

    44. Felix Nöbauer

      Looks much better than the Mercedes and the BMW

    45. Stu F

      Lovely on the inside apart from the useless storage but so very very dull on the outside

    46. Art Vandelay

      Looks better for sure, less grandma lookin

    47. Andrew Baines

      Why don’t you like load lip on the boot, at least your luggage won’t fall on the floor when you open the boot

    48. Ishaan Kaushik

      I am confused between glc and q5 which one is better to buy

    49. Kev Breezy

      team audi

    55. WhateverNevermind

      The most uninspiring car on sale

    56. Benjamin Nabulsi

      Audio is muffled 😪

    57. jurgendanhof

      Nothing will change, as long as people keep buying them.

    58. Adam

      This car looks like it is from the mid 2000s, not far off the focus mk2 design language

    59. RiskyKaZe

      Fake Contest: BMW Supra OR Audi Q5

    60. Samed Ibrahimovic

      Audi best

    61. Fawaz Alshammari

      I’ve never seen Matt so not in the mood for a car review like this one 🤣👌

    62. Coldcustard

      Why would anyone buy an ICE for a new car now

    63. Michael Nguyen

      For Sale: "a press review car by CarWow" Slightly driven and was handled with CARE by Mat Watson from Carwow. 😏

    64. Daniel Andrade

      those little holders in the glove compartment are for SD cards. For your camera or the radio nav thingy in the glove compartment.

    65. Kristian Diaz

      In the US that car is basically a Premium Plus SQ5, but with a 4 cylinder

    66. Jake Squires

      When are you doing a review of the new ford kuga

    67. Arshad Shaikh

      Looking cool

    68. Ricardo Marques

      That Beetle like back is extra ugly. 🤮

      Audi Suv's look as good as Tucson XD

    72. Roman Krasnov

      try not to use question mark. every video with a question mark

    73. Thimios Skrimpas

      11:26 Like as a Lucifer saying "Bloody Hell".

    74. Abhinav John

    75. Odessa Strickland

      The zonked chance intialy jail because quality apically handle amid a ill celery. annoying, naughty dressing

    77. Ollie Stammers

      I love the new Audi Q5

    78. Ajay Khan

      Please can you review 21 plate Q3. I ordered mine i want you to review it pls

    79. Joseph Misekabu

      *Matt why don't you test cars on public roads it was actually way better back then, then rather testing it on a track we all don't drive cars on tracks*

    80. O U

      Need a 2021 Range Rover Vogue/ Discovery / Evoque reviews with the new infotainment and Steering wheel updates. Love!!

    81. petewoodroffemusic

      Audio very deep and muffled!!

    82. Sergeant Schlumpf

      Oh.. I forgot to mention in the Seat Cupra vid’s comments: you forgot to see if it’s rear windows went down all the way.

    83. Andrija Božičević

      What is the problem about sun roof. It's slow but at least it's not noisy

    84. Sergeant Schlumpf

      6:28 SD cards there matt. 😉 ☺️🤫

    85. Abhishek Verma

      bored of these high end car reviews only.. can we have some "normal" cars review ?

    86. Mrfatmanjunior

      Why does matt say O-led, just say oled like the rest of us.

    87. Pete .C

      VAG still getting their figures wrong in 2021

    88. Dwayne Sealy

      "I forgot my hands are all dirty" That made me laugh out WAY harder than it should have.

    89. Toto M

      Really Like to see the SQ5, vorsprug it’s a different beast and gotta be worth the review. Maybe best in its class where as I definitely think there is better options at 2ltr SUV as Matt has shown here.

    90. Javo Ambrosi

      Made in Mexico, for the entire world in Audi Plant in Puebla

    91. Sanil Khanivadekar

      Matt so mny ads in 2 min intervals. U r goin dwn. Unsudscribed u jus nw

    92. General Admiral Aladeen Of the Republic of Wadiya

      9:26 is the cameraman sleeping?

    93. k0walsk

      By far the worst looking in the segment. Audi needs to step up their exterior design game. Simplify & modernize! I know it's hard but they for sure have the manpower and the talent for it!

    94. Berto López

      If you want to buy good SUV that is fun to drive well equipped for the price, buy an Alfa Romeo Stelvio

    95. Jimmy McGill

      Anyone else think the infotainment screen in the middle looks absolutely shit? I hate it when car makers just put screens onto their dash and don't like mould it into the dash

    96. Granny Gives Head

      He said track and didn't get a kick in the bottom. Someone is sleeping on their job.. this is a painfully average car

    97. sandile wonderboy

      When is carwow, coming also to south africa not just UK deals

    98. Amit D

      That German accent!!! :)

    99. Ante Vukoja

      we can finally see the cameraman: 9:25

    100. I am I said

      Nice refresh on Audi Q5 ... Audi, Volvo & other over the pond vehicles used to have amber/orange rear turn signals, can see better & safer too. Bring them back !!! Good review ! Slainte' ! Cheers !
