Premium SUV: the best Audi Q5, the top differences are very small



Characteristics

The final series: 1. audi Q5, 2. volvo XC60, 3. BMW X3, 4. mercedes-benz GLC, 5. lexus NX and 6. alfa romeo stelvio

The comparative test was conducted by the authors of eight Slovenian media and we evaluated the cars in five sets of content. Following its usefulness, the best Audi Q5, the Mercedes-Benz GLC engine and frame, the Audi Q5 support systems, in terms of the price of alfa romeo stelvio and the lexus NX, and the Volvo XC60 for the unseemly.

Five cars fed a four-cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of two to 2.2 liters. The Lexus NX had a hybrid engine (gasoline and electric motor).

The final difference in the set was very small. The first four cars split only 44 units or only 1.9 percentage points.

The Lexus NX and the alfa romeo stelvio, which received the lowest points in most rating groups, were better at the price and maintenance costs.

Volvo also offered the biggest discount on the car (17.5%), while the remaining 8 to 12%, but Alfa Romeo did not offer a discount for Stelvia.

The cost of insurance, registration and regular car maintenance for a period of five years is the lowest in the BMW X3 and amounts to almost three thousand less than the most beloved Mercedes GLC.

A large comparative test of PRIMA eight Slovenian media took this time under the consideration of premium sports middle squares. They led them to the test. They were recorded on the skin of a Slovenian customer, with two liter diesel engines. The only exception was the hybrid Lexus NX, which in the German-Swedish-Italian series also meant an alternative to the car.

The German triple and the Volvo XC60 stand out

The final differences were extremely small. This is true of the first four sports courts, where it is difficult to spot significant differences between them and in many respects is a personal decision of each buyer.

The winning Audi Q5 is obviously not one of the most impressive racing sports but is convinced in the field of engines, drive systems, convenience and auxiliary systems. Learn more about individual ranking in the information below. The hybrid vocabulary NX and the sporty oriented alfa romeo stellio are back. Both were cheap and affordable, but they were significantly behind the range of security support systems as well as utility. The low cost of ownership of the BMW X3 must be mentioned.

When measuring consumption, the hybrid Lexus stood out for low fuel consumption in the city, but most of it was spent on the motorway. Therefore, each individual customer will also look for his / her preferences among all the ratings, which are more important in his daily driving. With a steady ride, these racing fields can only consume five to six liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.




The Volvo XC60 surprisingly surpasses the driving qualities and has earned the most points in the unique category because of its image, where all seven authors give their subjective points. For the winners, he remained behind in the use of the passenger and boot space, and eventually lost less than a percentage point for a noble victory.

In X3, its growth is falling. Today, he is already more than the older brother of the X5, less than 20 years ago, and the X3 is still one of the most recognizable and well-established


In X3, its growth is falling. Today, he is already more than X5's older brother 20 years ago and the X3 is still one of the most recognizable and established "players" in the SUV category D.

The large windows, the excellent multi-unit unit function and the wonderful materials are just a touch on i.

How many sports courts have been set up and which brand is more generous with discounts?

When we went to the sales salon after modeling, we received a promising discount for five of the six cars there. This amounted to about 12 percent or more than 10 thousand euros. Alfi Romeo did not promise us a discount on Stelvia. Even in Lexus, the discount is quite common and does not depend on the vehicle's price, which is 4,500 euros of the so-called hybrid subsidies.

There are two large suitcases in the trunk, three "planes" and a full sports bag

In the field, the German troika was the best cutting tool in which we could pick up two large suitcases, three small "airplanes" and a large full sports bag with no problems under the roller (up to the height of the seats) .

It was a little harder for a volvo, but for the lexus, which had the only hard shelf, we could not get everything down. However, the items were folded to a height that did not exclude the driver behind the mirror. In the case of alpha, everything was worse because it had a significantly narrower trunk. While it was possible for others to fold two large suitcases on each side of the trunk and in the middle to tighten the bag, there was no such thing as the space was just two suitcases. The only way to close the trunk was to put the bag over the suitcases, which made the driver's back look difficult.




The buyer of the lexus NX must accept his distinctive character as well as the space restrictions in the passenger compartment and the lack of systems safely. Hybrid traffic is by far the most economical in the city, as we are accustomed, the hybrid drive does not appear on motorway sections. Consequently, partial electrification has a great advantage in the noise transmitted to the passenger compartment.

Among the six sports courts, fewer points won the alpha romeo stellio. She served her the most seductive SUV in curves. But in a world where safety, quality of materials and refinement take priority over driving dynamics, Alfa Romeo is still lagging behind. Most Alfa Romeo engineers are waiting for support and active safety systems where they simply can not compete. Due to the tight boot, it received the least of its usefulness and the space and quality in the passenger compartment were injured.

The differences in consumption are small and even sports courts can be very economical

Compared to the other major comparative tests of Prima, the differences in average consumption among the models were lower this time. The most economical in all driving modes was the alfa romeo stelvio (6.7 liters), which consumed 1.3 liters of fuel less than the most useless lexus NX with a hybrid car. However, when reviewing all the data, it is clear that in the city, precisely because of its movement, the dictionary for more than half a liter was more economical than the alpha romeo.

On the highway, the most expensive Audi Q5 (6.8 liters) was in the dynamic part of the route again the most efficient alpha romeo and the less expensive was the BMW X3 in the fuel cycle. After 111 km, less than 7 liters were used only by alpha romeo, while four were used between seven and eight liters. The only one who consumed eight liters was the dictionary.

An impressive view of average consumption in a quieter cycle, where mid-range SUVs were typically used from five to six liters. Depending on the size of the car, the quad movements and the non-aerodynamic design, this is an excellent result.

Entertainment systems, security equipment …

The intelligence of the car has been tested in two directions: the equipment and capabilities of ancillary safety devices as well as the equipment or set of contents and accessories designed primarily for comfort or prestige.

Overall, the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3 showed the widest variety of different and most useful technologies, which scored 44 units. But shortly after, according to modernity and progress with 43 points, Mercedes GLC and the Volvo XC60 were presented. Lexus and Alpha were very behind for the first quarter (27 and 24 units) and proved to be quite modest cars in this type of rating.

If only the safety assist systems were to be evaluated then the mercedes was at the top, followed by volvo. Only then will you get the first BMW series and then audi.

We also evaluated the braking AEB on the pad at 30 and 50 km / h. In this respect, it should be noted that all tested Euro NCAPs have successfully tested the barriers to testing, while the Vransko test has produced different results, which may also be due to external factors – the pillow composition, the treadmill, and not less the state of the used car. Mercedes, Volvo and Audi were the most dominant.

Individual reviews of cars

2nd place volvo XC60

It took seven years before the Swedes prepared a new generation, offering a royal style of minimalist Scandinavia, warmth of selected materials, attention to detail, comfort and natural safety. His self-esteem was placed on a swing and this time, with other competitors, he was armed, armed with systems safely. He was also surprised by his driving qualities, and he won most of the points in his unique category for his image, where all seven authors gave their subjective points. For the winners, he remained behind in the use of the passenger and boot space, and eventually lost less than a percentage point for a noble victory.

3rd place BMW X3

The fact that many competitors are equated is testimony to the break-point of all six cars. BMW won the hair championship, but at the same time it lost the highest step by step. BMW has retained an identifiable design language from Munich with the new X3, where successful stories do not want to change. In X3, its growth is falling. Today, it is already more than the X5's biggest brother about 20 years ago and the X3 is still one of the most recognizable and recognized SUV D players. With the PRIMA test, it appeared confidently with the usefulness of the passenger compartment and of the luggage compartment place the space at the top. The large windows, the excellent multi-unit unit function and the wonderful materials are just a touch on i. Like all three German cars, the X3 is one of the safest cars in its class, but the four-cylinder diesel engine consumes most of the diesel. Behind it, the hybrid NX is back.

4th place of Mercedes-Benz GLC

The oldest car among the six already awaits the revised version, which will definitely improve the quality and increase the knowledge of Mercedes, but still rank it in the fourth place. GLC was once again proven by its recognizable body, a slingshot placed by competitors in its first appearance, and still always maintains a high degree of comfort, safety and efficient energy consumption. Since it was equipped with air suspension only, it also impressed more when driving between the cones and at the same time with a fresh and useful passenger area and a luggage compartment. Naskok covered him at least partially with the cost of registration, insurance, regular maintenance in five years and a higher price compared to competitors.



1/11

5th place of lexus NX

Definitely the greatest specialty in the test. Not only in shape, it is completely different within and as the only bet for a hybrid car. Like the Mercedes GLC, the NX is no longer the newest member of the car, but with its attractive shape, despite its many years of experience, the NX is yet another opportunity for those who want to stand out with premium sports on the road. The buyer must accept its special character, as well as the limitations on the spaciousness of the passenger compartment and the lack of safety systems. Hybrid traffic is by far the most economical in the city, as we are accustomed, the hybrid drive does not appear on motorway sections. Consequently, partial electrification has a great advantage in the noise transmitted to the passenger compartment. Unfortunately, NX has too many compromises that put her in fifth place.

6th position alfa romeo stelvio

Alfa Sport's newest name already says it is created for sports pleasures. Το δυναμικά σχεδιασμένο SUV χαρακτηρίζεται από εξαιρετικά χαρακτηριστικά οδήγησης, γοητεία σχεδιασμού και ένα ρομαντικό σήμα, το οποίο στη δοκιμαστική περίπτωση είναι χαλασμένο από έναν αποφασιστικά υπερμεγέθη πετρελαιοκινητήρα. Από την άλλη πλευρά, αυτός ο κινητήρας ρομπότ είναι ο οικονομικότερος από όλους και είναι ευχαριστημένος με την ελαστικότητά του σε όλες τις ταχύτητες. Ο Στελβιο εκπλήρωσε την αποστολή του ως τον πιο ενθουσιώδη σε στροφές, κάτι που είναι σε μια τόσο εξαντλημένη κοινωνία που πρέπει να υπερηφανεύεται για τους Ιταλούς και τους λάτρεις του σήματος. Αλλά σε έναν κόσμο όπου η ασφάλεια, η ποιότητα των υλικών και η τελειοποίηση έχουν προτεραιότητα πριν από τη δυναμική οδήγησης, η Alfa Romeo εξακολουθεί να υστερεί. Οι περισσότεροι μηχανικοί της Alfa Romeo περιμένουν συστήματα υποστήριξης και ενεργητικής ασφάλειας, όπου απλά δεν μπορούν να ανταγωνιστούν. Λόγω της στενής μπότας, έλαβε τα λιγότερα σημεία της χρησιμότητάς της και ο χώρος και η ποιότητα στο διαμέρισμα των επιβατών είχαν τραυματιστεί. Η οθόνη της μονάδας πολλαπλών εργασιών είναι χειρότερη από ό, τι οι ανταγωνιστές, αλλά από την άλλη είναι ένα μεγάλο πλεονέκτημα – στο συγκριτικό πακέτο εξοπλισμού είναι μια από τις φθηνότερες επιλογές, η οποία έχει επίσης μια εξαιρετική σχέση μεταξύ της τιμής των υπηρεσιών, της ασφάλισης και της εγγραφής.
