The Audi Q5 has been named as Used Mid-Sized Car of 2023.
The German premium SUV scooped the award at the Car Dealer Used Car Awards 2023, and was voted for by a panel of judges.
The Q5 received praise for its plush interior, wide engine range and its desirability among used car buyers.
James Baggott, editor-in-chief of Car Dealer, said: ‘Car dealers have long been fans of the Audi Q5 because of how desirable they are to customers. It has that winning combination of stylish looks and an interior that’s both practical and very well made.
‘Not only that, but the Q5 is great to drive and comes in loads of varieties for every type of buyer – it’s a highly deserving winner.’
Mike Brewer, Car Dealer Used Car Awards host, said: ‘The Q5 is the sweet spot in Audi’s SUV range – it has all the desirability of the larger models in a family-friendly package.
‘Used car dealers know a Q5 is an easy sell to a customer as it has kerb appeal by the bucketload.’
