Before you buy a Audi Q5 in Uganda

by Edwin

The Audi Q5 is series of compact luxury crossover SUVs produced by the German luxury car manufacturer Audi from 2008, The original first-generation (Typ 8R) model was the third member of the B8 family to be released after the Audi A5 and fourth-generation A4, all being based on the Audi MLB platform. The second generation Q5 (Typ FY) debuted in 2016 and is shares the Audi MLBevo platform with the corresponding B9 versions of the A4 and A5.

Before you buy a Audi Q5 in Uganda

The Audi Q5 is only in its second generation, but it is firmly established as one of the most popular premium SUVs on the market - a very solid rival for the likes of the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC.

The latest Q5 shares chassis parts with the larger Q7, as well as the highly regarded Audi A4. It offers a comfortable, refined driving experience, but doesn’t quite match the X3 or Jaguar F-Pace for driver involvement.

Buying a foreign used Audi Q5 from a local Ugandan car bond

There are a number of car bonds in Uganda specifically Kampala from which you can buy your Audi Q5. However, you have to do good research in order to find a reputable car bond or dealer who will be able to provide you with the car that will meet your needs and above all genuinely imported into Uganda.

You need to look out for prices and discounts. Local car bonds may not charge the same prices for the same car. Prices of the Audi Q5 may be affected by mileage of the Audi Q5, condition of the car, model, and year of manufacture.

Importing a foreign Used Audi Q5 from Japan or other parts of the world

In case if you prefer to import your own Audi Q5 from say Japan or from Europe, things change a bit. First it would require you to find a trusted dealer or seller in that regard, determine your specific car features and requirements, expected budget you plan to spend on buying the car and well calculated taxes to be paid to the tax authorities in order to clear Land Rover Defender.

It is also very important to examine the car upon arrival to check and see if all the car components are included in the car as it was shown to you before buying it. You need to watch out for car spare tires, car jack, radio, navigation systems, window buttons among other things as compared to the vehicle previews shown to you by the car dealer abroad.

The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees basing on the CIF of the Audi Q5 from Japan.

On arrival to Kampala, Uganda, you will have to clear the taxes at The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), apply and pay for a number plate and then the third party license. You will also notice the some of these charges or fees differ from other vehicles.

General Audi Q5 reviews for Uganda

The Q5 is one of the best-resolved Audi SUVs of recent times - perhaps since the Q3 - with decent proportions that are a world ahead of the lumpy Q7 and the oddball Q2.

Audi’s MMI infotainment system is one of the best on the market - and the Q5 certainly packs in lots of entertainment features. It’s based on an 8.3-inch screen that’s perched on the front of the centre of the dashboard. The system itself is easy to use; you can jump between key areas of it by using permanent buttons mounted around the sides of the dial, and there’s handwriting recognition that allows you to scrawl letters of postcodes on the touchpad when you’re teeing up navigation. Voice control also features, in case you want to shout out addresses instead.

If you’re wondering if the Q5 is big enough to cope with four adults and their luggage, then let us set your mind at rest: there’s decent space inside for those grown-ups, and the boot is just about big enough to cope with three big suitcases and a couple of overnight bags.

Audi deserves some credit, in fact, for introducing a flexible rear seat that can alter fore and aft, and tweak the angle of its seatbacks, to prioritize either cabin space or the boot capacity. It’s just a shame it’s on the options list instead of being standard equipment.

Four adults will be extremely comfortable in the Q5. There are bags of shoulder space and headroom up front, and in the rear, even that tapering roofline doesn’t manage to make it cramped for six-footers. There’s really enough space, in fact, for the Q5 to cope with five adults on more than a short journey; that’s a decent effort in this class.
The Q5’s boot is large enough to hold three decent-sized suitcases, with a couple of overnight bags squeezed in around them. But in raw capacity, it’s not quite up to the class best. If you spec the movable rear seat, the boot size ranges from 550 to 610 litres. By comparison, the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC have 550 litres with their (fixed) rear seats in place - but Jaguar’s F-Pace has 650 litres on offer.
