The Audi Q5 is a great-looking medium size SUV, with a clean and classic-looking exterior. When it comes to family practicality, the 2023 Audi Q5 has ISOFix in the two outer rear seats, they are within guides and nice and easy to connect to.

There are top tether anchorages on the back of all three rear seats; they are easy to access and connect to through the boot.

I found that three Infasecure child seats will fit across the back seats of the 2023 Audi Q5. I installed the Infasecure Adapt More infant capsule rear-facing behind the driver and the Infasecure Momentum More and Achieve More forward-facing in the two other seats.

Although this combination of three Infasecure child seats will fit across, there wasn't room for three forward-facing child seats.

Legroom is quite good for families in the Audi Q5; we could fit around a 180cm driver in front of the rear-facing Infasecure Adapt More infant capsule and taller passengers in front of the forward-facing child seats.

Families can also rest assured when it comes to boot space in the 2023 Audi Q5. From empty, fourteen shopping bags will fit in the boot of the Audi Q5, which is comparable to the BMW X3, Genesis GV70 and Porsche Macan, which all hold thirteen shopping bags.

The Jiffle Wagon 6-in-1 cart fits in the boot with eight shopping bags, and the Jiffle wagon holds up to 60kg of cargo inside the wagon too.

Storage inside the 2023 Audi Q5 is good. Rear passengers get two cup holders in a fold down in the central seat back that will hold a disposable coffee cup and a kid's drink cup.

There are net map pockets in the back of both front seats…

…and the rear door bins will hold two water bottles comfortably.

The front passengers can hold their coffee in the two cup holders in the central console, and behind them is a phone tray. Underneath the phone tray, the storage box is a good size.

In front of the cup holders are various size and shape little storage areas for keys and passenger phones and there's a 12V and USB sockets beside another phone tray.

The glove box is a good size, holding my wallet and iPad with the manual…

… and the front door bins are equally practical, with enough space for an iPad or map with your water bottle.

Rear passengers are also kept comfortable with rear air vents in the Audi Q5 and 12V and USB-C sockets to charge devices while travelling in the back.

The media system in the 2023 Audi Q5 is lovely and modern and very simple to use and navigate while driving.

You can easily customise things like the sound through the media screen which is great for families.

The 2023 Audi Q5 has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is great for accessing your listening and navigation apps while driving.

The reversing camera has a nice clear image, and visibility is very good in the Audi Q5 for parking and manoeuvring.

The 2023 Audi Q5 medium luxury SUV makes a great all-around family car. With enough space for families needing up to three child seats in the back and a generous boot for the Jiffle Wagon 6-in-1 pram and a week's grocery shop too. The Audi Q5 is a nice car to drive, with very little road and wind noise. It's a peaceful drive if the kids are quiet in the back too!

The Audi Q5 SUV has been given a five-star ANCAP safety rating. Six airbags come as standard, including dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting airbags (curtains) are also standard for front and second-row outboard positions.
