The Q5 pleases in every way, blending a compliant chassis with ample utility and all-weather ability. Powertrains include a 220-hp turbocharged four-cylinder, a zesty supercharged 272-hp V-6, and even a fuel-efficient—although pricey—hybrid. An eight-speed automatic is standard, as is all-wheel drive. In true Audi fashion, the Q5 is elegantly styled and boasts standard-setting fit and finish. 2015 and 2016 TDI diesels have been stop-saled until further notice due to EPA violations.

Your typical new-car launch consists of a dozen or so juvenile-minded writers driving cars they don’t own, burning fuel they didn’t pay for, on roads that have in part been selected for their limited police presence. It’s a suitable arrangement for evaluating a car’s major attributes: acceleration, handling, ride quality, interior quietness, and so on—everything except fuel economy. But when efficiency is a vehicle’s top selling point, as it is with the 2014 diesel-powered Audi Q5 automakers do their best to rein in the aggression and keep that message top of mind.

When we first drove its new Q5 TDI late this summer, Audi pulled out an old industry standby created just for this occasion: a fuel-economy challenge, with prizes for the winners. With trinkets on the line—a T-shirt, a keychain, a day-old doughnut; it doesn’t really matter—journalists instinctively sort themselves into one of two camps. The first includes the handful who treat the contest as if they were invited to take a half-court shot for a million bucks, and we fall into the other, shrugging off the game and driving the car as we would any other.
