Audi Q5 Sportback in check
And because for them around seven liters of diesel enough, you can travel up to 1010 kilometers (Mercedes) with the help of decent tanks. So it’s easy to find out about the somewhat rasping four-cylinder sound to look away. So that common sense is not too obvious, Audi, BMW and Mercedes step with theirs Coupé offshoots at. The extra extravagance comes with Deficits in space and higher purchase prices paid. Audi gives itself to the Q5 most humble. 2250 euros are enough to replace the standard model that has been available since 2017 dewy Sportback to be able to park in the garage at home. Anyway 3700 euros are at BMW for the Upgrade from X3 to X4 due. Who the Mercedes GLC with panoramic rear window favored, must for the coupe a proud 4355 euros transfer more.

For the foreigners Alfa Romeo and Jaguar that’s just a vain heck of a mess that you don’t even need. at Stelvio and F-Pace In addition to the big brand names, the small quantities for the necessary exclusivity. Especially as hers conventional rear architecture brings another advantage: at the latest at folded down bench both have by far the largest trunk, the Italian also offers the best headroom in the rear. But those are not the deciding factors in this class. This is about Style, image and personality. And each of the five offers enough of that.

The bottom line: Five noble SUVs with small diesels, five interpretations. The BMW deserves to win, does not falter. The Audi can overtake the Mercedes on the costs. The Jaguar convinces with a lot of space and fine workmanship, but is expensive. The Alfa is a case for fans who love it for who it is.
