Purchased As New
I have had my Q5 for 4 months and love it. I seriously considered the GLK (rear leg room is for kids only and looks are a bit ugly) as well as the RDX, Volvo XC60 and others. This is my 3rd Audi and I replaced a Volvo S60 AWD with it. The handling is great and once the transmission gets used to your driving style the performance is strong. Pick up on the highway is all you need and take off from a red light is not a problem at all. I tend to drive fairly aggressive and most all of my driving is in the city. The rear leg room is the best I could find in this class and rear seats are plenty comforable. The cargo space while not huge is about all you can expect from a small SUV like this. It has great privacy for the rear compartment and quickly folds down and expands to give you a decent cargo space. Drivers area and controls are quite ergonomic and once you sort through the basics of the MMI and get things set up its use becomes 2nd nature. I am a bigger guy and there is as much room as I need though the seat bolsters can get a little uncomfortable on longer road trips. The display and gauges and the overall fit and finish is what I have come to expect from Audi and overall am very pleased with my purchase. I was not able to get the premium package and really don't miss it othen then a few things like the Xenon lights and home link etc. The SD slot in the stereo is great and I don't need to worry about carrying my IPod when on the road as I can carry as much music as needed on a couple of chips. As far as price it is right in the ball park with all of the others with the exception of the new Volvo XC60 which I found quite over priced. Once you load up a Honda CRV and a RAV4 V6 to similar trim levels there is not that much difference in price and the quality difference is significant. Overall love this SUV and looking forward to upgrading to the Premium model in a couple of years.
