Can't afford a 3.0tdi so am between buying the new shape 2.0tdi or go old school with a late V6.

Has anyone found the 2 litre model to be a bit lacking regarding overtaking 30-50 and 50-70 wise?

A bit vague of a question to give a true indication.

What car are you coming from?

I have an SQ5 with a remap & it's bonkers quick for a heavy car.

Have also driven & owned varied cars.

Had a 2.0 diesel Q5 as a loaner & it was OK overtaking & mpg was only slightly better than my 3.0 BiTdi.

Best to go out & drive both, as only you will know what suits.

Rappy :-)

The 2.0TDI is a very nice car and more than capable on the road. It can be a bit slow off the mark and that shitty stop / start system does not help.

Currently BMW325d coupe 197bhp so similar power though lighter 1590kg compared to the Q5 1770kg

I will try and get an extended test drive though think I am just going to have to either save my pocket money up or be happy with the older 3.0tdi model

Want an SQ5​ now! much difference between the petrol and diesel versions?

I agree completely. The official UK figures for 0 - 60 times show that it is quite quick. Even quicker when quoted in the US...I do not know why this is but it is quoted as 0-60 in 5.8 seconds in some videos etc. In fact for 4 years a ran a BMW X3 xDrive 30d M Sport and found as soon as I got in my Q5 2.0 litre petrol it felt quicker in the different speed ranges. It is the acceleration in speed ranges like 20 mph to 50 mph and 40 mph to 70mph, where it holds on to the lower gears for longer that impresses.

It even sounds good when you floor it - would you agree?

I have the new Q5 TDI 190, it’s more than adequate for UK roads and can achieve 50 mpg. Certainly not slow compared to my VW UP :) with cars it’s what you get used to...

Yes it is if you want a diesel! Many people do not! Witness row upon row of them: used and new outside my local dealership. I will be having one as loaner whilst mine goes in for investigation for the clangy brake pedal.

I find my new shape Q5 diesel more than adequate as regards performance.

It can feel a big sluggish sometimes but this is due to the DSG ‘box rather than the engine. If you’re pulling out of a busy junction, roundabout or doing an overtake you absolutely have to flick into S mode.

I was lucky to attend a corporate day at Mercedes Benz World this week and had a good session in a C63S, in comparison to this, the Q5 did feel a bit pedestrian like after....;-)

Akin to getting off your bike and getting into your Q5!
After driving around locally in my wife's 2019 Polo 1.0 TSI 95 SE 5dr DSG and then getting into my Q5, the Q5 feels very quick. For a 4 pot 2.0 litre petrol it is.

A client of mine has the TFSI version and even that feels very quick compared to my TDI Q5.

I've had 2 x 2L DIESEL Q5's, now I'm on 2L PETROL and loving the increased performance. My average economy is 34Mpg, but it really shifts when I want it to and it sounds great too in Sports Mode.

But buy a Carista for £25 and you can set stop/start to remember last setting and also change light to 'on' when system is active. Did that and a few other tweaks... so no issues now and even more happy with my Q5 2.0TDi .

Went for a last of the 'old shape' 3.0tdi and very happy with it.

Down points...weird "nappa leather"...antiquated sat nav. Apart from that love it.
