I'm looking to buy a new car and can't decide between these two.
Main requirements are it should accommodate 2 adults + 3 children. Oldest child is out of the seat, the second one should be out of seat in less than a year whereas the third one is only 2. Need decent sized boot space, comfortable and reliable. I don't change my cars often (I've had current Honda Accord for over 9 years).
Either would be auto and diesel. Budget is between £20k - £25k. A 2 years old, low mileage CR-V is almost £5k cheaper than like for like Q5.
My head says CR-V but heart says Q5! I've always liked Audis but never owned one.
CR-V plus point for me:
Lots of space at the rear and flat floor would mean no complaints from kids
Long term reliability should be better
Auto gearbox has lots of good reviews.
Q5 plus points:
It looks nice inside out.
Premium feel inside with lovely interior and tech
Wife likes it
