Purchased As New
It was either this or the Lexus RX 450h and after about a month of going back and forth, I opted for my Audi Q5. Setting a new standard for this sector of the industry. It stands out. I still get looks from other drivers. As for performance, this is definitely a driver's SUV (CUV). One thing for sure, you feel confident when driving, like if you were in a Porsche going a 150 MPH down the interstate. Little to none body roll on curves at high speeds. Sometimes, you forget you're driving a SUV. As for the driver and front passenger, this is a dream vehicle. Audi didn't spare anything when it came to the fit and finish to the interior. I think the only car that EQUALS it would be a Lexus. Now, the rear is a different story. Even though the wheel base is larger than most, they could have put a little more. I have one kid and it seems like she is cramped in the back. Fuel economy is not bad, but comparing it with the other SUV I was planning to purchase it lacks in that department. Hopefully, Audi plans to bring the Q5 TDI here to the US that would level the playing field. Technology again is equal to that of Lexus. However, the interface could be a little bit more user friendly. If you don't know the system well enough, it tends to take your eyes off the road a little too much (in all fairness, I had the same problem with the Lexus). The worst part is cargo space. It looks big and wide when the rear hatched is closed, but when you open it you will be disappointed. My golf bag hardly fits in it. Although, for the ordinary day to day operation (i.e. groceries) it would do just fine. Overall, the Q5 is not the best in everything, but does everything well which something that no other SUV or CUV can claim.
