If you're searching for an SUV, chances are there's going to be an Audi that fits your needs. Whether you're looking for something smaller, something capable of housing a large family, or something to pose about in, Audi's comprehensive SUV range has more than likely got you covered.

The reason so many companies such as Audi are offering such an extensive selection of these high-riding cars is because so many people are buying them. The popularity of SUVs and crossovers has gone through the roof over the last few years as their endless practicality and desirable looks have made them the car to have in 2021.

Audi's SUV offerings are arguably the best in this regard. Not only do they have every base covered in terms of size, the Audi badge that sits on the grille has a huge amount of prestige that many drivers simply cannot turn away from.

If you, too, find yourself being drawn to those four rings, then you're in the right place to find yourself a great deal on some excellent used Audi SUVs. From the compact Q2 to the gargantuan Q7, or something more sporty like the SQ5, we've got it all covered right here on BuyaCar.

Audi SUVs

Audi Q2

Used deals from £17,699
Monthly finance from £246*

The smallest option in the Audi SUV range, the Audi Q2 is built from the same base as the Audi A3 hatchback measuring 50mm shorter in length, 17mm wider and 84mm taller. This makes the Q2 smaller than a Mini Countryman and similar in size to the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.

What really sets the Q2 apart from the class though is build quality and practicality. Considering it's more compact than a mid-sized family hatchback, there really is a surprising amount of space inside. As a car for a small family, you'll have no trouble fitting two child seats in the back, while a 405-litre boot will also prove perfectly usable.

As we alluded to above however, that extra step up in quality along with the prestige of the Audi badge comes at a higher price than anything else of this size. But if you can justify paying a bit more you'll be getting plenty for your money. There's even a four-wheel drive 'quattro' version if you fancy it.


Audi Q3

Used deals from £15,291
Monthly finance from £257*

Think of the Q3 as a tall family hatchback. Despite being low down the Audi SUV line-up, it has space in the back for two tall adults and a 530-litre boot that's larger than the one in the VW Golf. It also remains narrow enough for easy city driving. Despite its height, it's designed to be best on tarmac rather than off road.

The latest car, which went on sale in late 2018, is also not short of standard equipment, including a dual-screen dashboard made up of a large centre screen and Audi's "virtual cockpit" display behind the steering wheel, which shows digital dials and additional information, such as sat-nav directions.

On the road, it's extremely smooth too, but it needs to be: hi-tech and comfortable rivals, such as the Volvo XC40, BMW X1 and Jaguar E-Pace mean that there are plenty of excellent models to choose from in this category, as well as cheaper alternatives: the Peugeot 3008 range starts at £6,000 less from new than the Audi.


Audi Q5

Used deals from £20,899
Monthly finance from £327*

The Audi Q5 is the first of the larger Audi SUVs. It's 178mm longer than the Q3, 291mm wider and 56mm taller, making it feel like a much more imposing car to sit in. The current Q5 has been on sale since 2016, but it still feels fresh in terms of styling and equipment and there's even a plug-in hybrid version now too.

Inside you get heated front seats, three-zone climate control, sat-nav and parking sensors as standard, while the Audi virtual cockpit is also available on S line models and up. Everything about the Audi Q5's quality is top notch, and while you'll be spending a lot of money to get your hands on one, any alternatives offering anything close, such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport or Mercedes GLC, will be equally expensive, if not more so.

The Audi Q5 does have more interior space than the Q3, but unless you need to carry tall adults in the back, your passengers should be comfortable in either. The Q3 is also smoother at slower speeds, where the Q5 can thud over potholes and speed bumps.


Audi Q7

Used deals from £32,799
Monthly finance from £469*

The current Audi Q7 went on sale in 2015 and is Audi’s answer to luxury SUVs such as the Volvo XC90 and BMW X5. It’s a large, comfortable car that feels stable and manoeuvrable to drive. It can seat seven with some luggage space to spare and is packed with technology including Audi’s online Connect system. This turns your car into a WiFi hotspot, can find the cheapest nearby petrol station, and stream internet radio.

For anyone after something a bit more fiery, a seriously quick version badged SQ7 that accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.9secs, - faster than Audi’s TT sports car. It's q rather ridiculous feeling from the driving seat, but you'll be paying plenty for the privilege.

There was also a plug-in hybrid called the Q7 e-tron, which had an official fuel economy figure of 157mpg, and low carbon dioxide emissions, which brought reduced company car tax. This is no longer available as a new car, but used models are still around on BuyaCar.


Audi Q8

Used deals from £51,074
Monthly finance from £716*

With a brutish grille that's set to cause heart palpitations when it appears in your rear-view mirror, the Audi Q8 is designed to show that it's no shrinking violet.

Fitted with high-performance engines, and with a smoother, more flowing design, it combines the acceleration of a sports car with the space of a large SUV. Standard air suspension means that you can select a comfortable setting for smooth progress.

Inside, virtually every button is eliminated and replaced with three screens, and it's roomy for five passengers, but boot space is reduced by the sloping roof, which also means that a third row of seats is not available.


Audi e-tron

Used deals from £48,350
Monthly finance from £859*

The e-tron was Audi's first electric car back in 2018. Introduced as a large SUV that sits in between the Q5 and Q7 in terms of size, it's a great option for families looking to reduce their carbon footpirnt, as long as they can handle the rather inflated price tag.

When it comes to electric range the Audi e-tron should be good for around 220 miles on a single charge, which is competitive against the likes of the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro, which come in as much cheaper alternatives.

It's the price where the e-tron really needs some consideration, because you can get some other perfectly usable SUVs for half the cost, and while you get all the equipment Audi currently has at its disposal, including everything mentioned above, justifying that to your other half will prove difficult.

Audi Q4 e-tron

On sale Summer 2021

The Audi Q4 has been a long time coming. It's scheduled to appear during the summer 2021 as one of seven electric cars Audi plans to have on sale by the end of the year, sitting somewhere between the Q3 and Q5 in terms of size.

Details on pricing and specifications will come later, but expect the Q4 to come with another rather hefty price tag as it brings all the latest electric car tech to the road. One thing we do know is that Audi claims it will deliver an electric range of up to 279 miles, with two electric motors capable of pushing 0-62mph in just 6.3 seconds, so it ought to be one of the best options in its class.
