First time Audi owner and absolutely love the Q5. Great gas mileage, about 27 miles on highway with premium gas. No problems with the vehicle to date. Excellent paint job and easy to keep clean. Highly recommend this vehicle.

I have had my 2010 for a little over a year. I only had one problem with it and that was three weeks ago. The water pump went while I was driving. My husband came and had the suv towed on a flat bed to the dealer we bought it from. They told him they had no idea why the water pump went (not common on 3.2 engines). They told my husband to wait and fixed it right then and there. Now that is service. It is great on the road it hugs it. Great miles on the highway driving. I would buy another one in a heart beat. No regrets.
Handling, pick up, highway gas miles, sun roof,styling in general. The color leather in side.
I could say more storage pockets but then it wouldn't be what it is.... So, nothing.

I used to drive a 2008 BMW X5 and didn't like the performance, comfort, quality, reliability, etc. The Audi Q5 is more than what I expected, especially the way it handles the road on an extreme condition, the way it accelerates when passing, driving uphill is like driving on a straight road. The only thing I didn't like about the Audi Q5 is the way it drives under 10 mph. Overall, the best SUV I've ever driven, better than the BMW X5
exterior design needs to be more aggressive but luxurious
I bought my Q5Premium Plus this month after going back and forth with the car dealer trying to get a better deal with the 2011's out. I was finally able to get the vehicle at almost $4000 off the sticker. I have only driven 1200 miles, but so far I love the vehicle. On a weekend trip, I got between 26-27 MPG which I feel is excellent. I suggest that you wax the 19" wheels with a good wax. The brake dust will still show up, but it will wash off much easier. Overall I will rate this vehicle a 10. I will write again in about 6 months.
Power, B & O stereo, Comfortable seats, quietness of vehicle, gas mileage so far,looks of vehicle. Love the emergency brake design.
Ceramic brakes standard (less dust) 19" Wheels/tires standard Chrome grill instead of plastic
Just got back from driving on route 91 in a terrible rain and wind storm. Today was another example of why I purchased an Audi SUV. It holds the road so well and just feels very safe to drive; especially under bad driving conditions.
quattro all wheel system, feels like you're sitting in your living room rather than on a road when moving.
the manual could be a little more user friendly. a little too wordy.
I wrote an earlier review and don't have much to add; I thoroughly enjoy the vehicle and am very happy with the choice. I do have some observations: my wife, who is 5' 2" drove my car one time and really disliked the oversize side mirrors as they obscured her view; I am 6'1" and haven't had that problem so maybe it's an issue only for smaller stature folks. If I could change one thing it still would be opting for all-season radials instead of the summer performance tires. Also, a minor beef: the rear view camera takes a few moments to initialize so I find I'm having to wait after hopping in and cranking the ignition before I can begin to back up. All in all a great car!
Audi Advanced Key, rear view camera (slow to start, though!) panorama sunroof; MMI--very easy to control all functions
stick with all season radials, would like smaller side mirrors
Purchased the 2010 Q5 about 5 weeks ago and this vehicle has exceeded all my expectations. It rides and handles beautifully. It feels very safe and stable and can stop on a dime. The interior is also quite impressive. It just looks and feels great. Really nice to drive after a long day at work. Averaging 26 mpg between 20% city and 80% highway driving. Overall, I would not hesitate to purchase another Q5 if anything ever happens to this one.
Panoramic sunroof, interior quality, exterior looks, LED lighting, MMI interface.
Where is the diesel option?
Just bought my Q5 a month ago and I love it. Very solidly built. I am really enjoying the "Smart Key" feature. I also am a fan of the MMI; though it's not really what I would call "intuitive", it hasn't been all that hard to adapt to. I love that I can make and take phone calls, navigate through the onscreen menu, adjust climate, etc, without having to "reach" for any controls. Complaints? It does seem to accelerate somewhat unevenly at very low speeds; room in the backseat is also tight--I'm 6 ft 1 in so when I drive, someone sitting behind me won't have much legroom---fortunately that rarely happens! GREAT looking car. I'll review again in 6 months.
Smart Key, iPod integration, Panorama roof
transmission/accelerator? I have the performance summer tires and would probably prefer an all-season radial
I'm a sedan guy for a family ride, and when it came time for my wife to look for a new car I tried like heck to stay away from the SUV-Crossover segment. After driving the Q5 I have become a convert. The Q5 is a wonderful driving machine, precise in its handling (once you get used to the size) and surprisingly good in the twisties. Just got back from a road trip down to San Fran and I was very impressed. The overall feel of quality and competence in the way the Audi goes about its business is flat out impressive.
The steering wheel feels so grounded to the road, 27 MPG on cruise control on the freeway, quiet and tidy interior, the feeling of balance in the twisties.
Smaller mirrors, buffeting sound when sunroof open at speed is annoying.
Hey you guys in the US, I had to wait 6 months to get my 3.0TDI to Australia, and I can tell you at last that it was well worth the wait. The diesel power is very different to the 3.2 version. It comes as more of of a surge, rather than the instant zippy power of a petrol motor, but when it surges, it just seems to keep producing more and more power! I chose this over the 3.2 because it is more economical and has even faster acceleration. (0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds. I won't add to the comments others have already made about the build quality and driving pleasure as I'm sure this has already been covered, just wanted you all to know that the diesel is a monster!
Design both inside and out, and the sunroof and premium sound system is a real buzz on a beautiful Sunday drive through the countryside.
Better availability. I shouldn't have to wait 6 months to get my hands on one, but that's because I was very specific about the options I wanted.
This is my first Audi and I absolutely love it! I have owned several other vehicles including BMW, Volvo, etc., and this car is far above the rest. If you are thinking of any other vehicle in this class, I highly recommend a long test drive and you will be convinced.
Performance, interior design, exterior design, dashboard features.
Bluetooth should be standard
Traded in my BMW X5 and haven't looked back. Eye catching exterior and interior design, comfortable ride, good acceleration exiting ramps, quality build throughout.
Ride and handling, reliability, brand name, LED daytime running lights
Bring the 3.0 TDI to the USA! Make the side view mirror blinker standard on all models (safety feature). Dunlops are fair in rain and poor in snow; make Michelin Cross Terrain standard OEM tire.
After years of Japanese vehicles I transitioned to that which I always wanted. Was set up to buy an A-4 but wanted a little utility and was willing to compromise on performance. So far very happy with features and performance.
The fuel economy for a 3.2 is nice--power is speeding ticket generating nice. Nav system interface on the center console is becoming more and more intuitive.
Reduce the size of the side mirrors. They are very large and serve to really obstruct your front quarter visibility. I have to move my head quite a bit and raise the seat to clear the path.
Replaced my 2008 Honda Pilot. I had leased A4 in 2005 and was very happy with Audi as a brand. Great car/SUV. Love it, of course smaller than Honda Pilot but works for me.
Great handling, great interior, great brand.
Backseat has less leg room. Three large adults cannot seat comfortably in the back seat.
This is my first German car and it's a great one - beautifully finished, good mix of power and economy, and reasonably fun handling. I sold a Mini Cooper to upsize to the Q5 and don't regret it a bit. The quality is first-rate and my wife feels safer in a larger vehicle with outstanding crash test results.
Handling, smooth powertrain, panoramic sunroof, back seat comfort, great stereo.
Had to buy an oil dipstick for an A4 to install myself, as the Q5 uses electronic monitoring standard.
It was love at first sight! From the moment I saw the Q5 I knew that's what I wanted and had been waiting for. I had already made a deal on a BMW X3, but I was not 100% convinced that I liked the car, particular the stiff ride. I drive a lot. Every week-end I'm on the road and driving my Q5 is a dream come true! It is just pure pleasure! I love how the cockpit looks when it gets dark.
Diesel would be best.
During snow or rain, when the rear hatch is opened, to gain access to the rear compartment, water, snow, dirt and salt build up in the drain channel and then run into the rear compartment. I've seen the mess run over the rubber seal. The dealer said they cannot do anything but maybe Audi will contact me and see if the problem can be solved. To date, no additional contact.
Like the vehicle. Excellent handling, steering and ride. Good gas mileage, get over 30 mpg on the highway and about 25 average around town.
Design flaws need to be resolved.
I LOVE my new Audi Q5. Its Comfortable, handles great and is so easy to drive. No problems since I purchased. Service Department is Awesome. I will Definitely purchase another Audi for wifes next vehicle. Thank you AUDI Great Job.
Very Reliable, Comfortable Interior, Super FUN to drive.
I really don't have any Complaints. Hmm I don't own 2 of them.
Replaced my 2009 Murano. This crossover rides so much better. More responsive steering. Handling around curves much better. Quieter on the highway. Less obstructed rearward view. Interior much finer albeit a tad bit smaller. The Audi doesn't quite match the cargo space of the Murano, but I don't miss it. I do wish the gas mileage was a little better, but this is after all a crossover not a car.
Refined interior. Panoramic moon roof (much quieter than the Murano's) I would never open it in the Murano because of noise.
Improved gas mileage.
We recently purchased a 2010 Q5 Premium Plus at Classic Audi and absolutely love it. It handles very well and commands the road.
We love everything about it!
Perhaps make some of the options (i.e 20 inch wheels, stainless steel fascia (front /rear) standard
Side mirrors are too big and create large blind spots. I needed to take car in to have transmission "reprogrammed" in second week of owning the car. otherwise, Q5 is a good car.
handling, power, and interior comfort.
make side mirrors smaller. fix the transmission since it's a known issue for 2 years now.
I have had my Q5 for one month (1300 miles). Moved up from 2005 Subaru Outback XT (turbo). The car feels bigger than it is (probably high hood), but the handling is superb. Nice turn radius, positive/stable in twisties, and smooth/fast acceleration. Steering feels 1:1 and no issue. Noted comment on hesitation from stop to start; haven't experienced this. Shifting smooth all the way up; sport mode is RESPONSIVE. Interior is beautiful. MMI and voice work, but there is a learning curve: reading instruction book helps! It is more expensive than the Suby (for the money, very good value). But if a luxury compact SUV is your thing, then the Q5 is an excellent choice; I highly recommend the Q5.
The car is designed around the driver. As a former jet jock, I look for ergonomics and functionality; this car is outstanding in both categories. Front passenger seat is great. Very comfortable car without sacrificing performance.
One passenger (female, medium build) said rear seat was a little uncomfortable. Reclined she said it was better. Ok for me (male, large). A little more rear storage volume/depth would be nice, but works well for my needs. Better mileage is always desirable. Offering a TDI would be nice.
Beautiful car but has flaws... 1) The navigation system: does not allow searching for a restaurant type. for instance you cannot ask for Chinese, Mexican or Italian food - you just get a list of restaurants that includes everything from "taco bell" to "chez panesse". 2) The brake pads spew dark dust that spray the side of the car daily. There are no mud-flaps to prevent overspray from the front wheels so the side of my car is covered in break dust from the wheels daily. 3) Who uses dvd's? Get rid of the dvd player. 4) Who uses an ashtray? Get rid of the ashtray or at least make it larger so it can be used to hold a cell phone or business cards - its a useless space.
Great looking car. drives well.
All mentioned above but mainly #1 issue is the panorama sunroof is NOISY on the highway. I thought I had a window open but no-its clearly a design flaw. NAV system is inferior - no touch screen either. Skip the NAV and get a garman or ipad. ALSO, I got only 13 mpg standard driving, flat roads!
This car is wonderful. For a car this small you think it would be cramped but it's not. A definite buy
Front Parking camera.
I have driven lots of cars, and this one takes the cake. Handling and overall performance are better then my wife's A4, and it has much more cargo capacity.
Fixed Center Consul. Heated and cooled cup holders. Diesel!
I purchased the 2010 with the prestige S line package. So far I love to drive it and there are no problems.Only difficulty is operating the MMI. But once you get used to it, it's not too bad.
I love the driving dynamics, interior, exterior, and panoramic view.
Make MMI navigation with touch screen control.
This vehicle is the pinnacle of luxury. It outperforms anything else I have driven. Its ride is unique, firm but smooth at the same time. It's a definite buy.
Heated, Ventilated, and massaging front and rear seats. Heated and cooled cup holders. Adaptive Headlights and night vision on Nav. Refrigerator Option in Console. Font and side parking sensors.
When I bought mi Q5 prestige, I was very happy but all the problems started.A/C broke down twice, dealership had to replace to parts on both headlights,leak on the transmission etc etc.Nice looking car, fun to drive POOR RELIABILITY. TRADED IN FOR A LEXUS.
I am reporting review AUDI Q5 (year of 2010) because the front daylight headlight running sets problems, I purchased an AUDI Q5 in 9/23/2009, it happened 3 times of front headlight daylight running sets broken in 5 months, my car's current mileage is only 5700 mile, which is apparently not the LED headlight quality problem, which is highly possible on the electrical problems, now I am waiting for AUDI's response to see they will treat it as a lemon car case or not.
Front LED headlight daylight running sets electrical system looks has big problem.
I had a Q5 Premium plus with S-line package, had this vehicle for almost 2 weeks now & I will say that this is the best car I ever had. Day time running LED lights makes a cool stylish appearance. Ride is great & quite, car keeps on lane with very little steering effort. Interior fit & finish is excellent. MMI nav is not really user friendly, but once used will be ok, would love if have touch screen.. The display on meter shows the songs list & tel numbers without interfering nav screen is great. I would definitely recommend any one looking to buy a compact SUV to drive this car.
LED Daytime running lights, display in meter, panorama sunroof,
Touch screen navigation, MMI controls
We drive our Q5 in the LA area and love it! It's good looking, quick, quiet and fun!
Feels like a sports car, looks great, sound system is excellent. Interior is cool.
Make it less expensive.
This is by far the best SUV in this size and price range. We test drove the XC60, RX350, GLK350, X3, SRX and the RDX. The Q5 comes out on top quality wise.
Exterior and interior design, quality and performance.
Need better warranty service
Overall, the Q5 is a wonderful driving experience. I live up north and it handles extremely well in the snow. Very comfortable and pleasant to drive. However, there are issues. The nav system, although nice looking, gives unreliable directions. I use my $180 portable instead. And the key. How do you screw up an ignition key? The MMI (multi media) system is nice but forgets your settings. Stupid things like always having to tell it to "shuffle" the music - every time you use it it requires 4 clicks. It also forgets your seat heater settings. Also, with the MMI buttons on the middle console, its very easy to accidentally touch one. Why doesn't it have a touch screen???!!
B&O stereo; comfortable interior and ride; sporty; get many compliments about the beautiful interior; solid feel; nice exterior colors; quiet ride; feels safe in snow
Rework the MMI system! It works but not without frustration. Needs a touch screen; the key is too big; the interior hatch button should also close it; needs more storage compartments; back seat should slide further back for additional leg room; disappointing nav system.
WOW, what a terrific vehicle. I read a review before buying it that claimed it was the only SUV that truly drove like a car unlike others who claim the same, and I agree. It is very fun to drive, got hit with many snow storms this winter and I just drove right through everything with no problem, passing other struggling cars. Handles great, comfortable ride, technology is convenient. I have the Prestige package, fully loaded, and I don't regret spending the extra money. Its a beautiful car and I feel good about myself when being seen with it (as shallow as that sounds) I have the Luxury package with the Milano Leather and ventilated seats, which I cant wait to try in the summer! BEST CAR
The SIDE ASSIST is very helpful, tracking and cars approaching on either side. REAR VIEW CAMERA great for judging distances while backing up. B&O SURROUND SOUND. KEYLESS ENTRY. NAVIGATION w/ traffic. You can preset satellite stations on the same list as radio stations. Driving in S, great pickup!
It would be nicer if the heated seats got HOTTER. They get warm, on the verge of hot but not quite there (might only be me with the Luxury because of the ventilated seat addition.) Heated Steering Wheel option would be nice! Also heated rear seats. But these are only added unnecessities, not needed
The car runs well, but when we brought the car in for the first service we were told the water pump had a leak and they had to replace it, but it needed to be ordered. When they received the part we brought the car back to the dealer and they replaced the water pump but then told us there was a small leak in the transmission and they said Audi told them to replace the transmission. Went back when they received the transmission and they replaced it but then they said it was programmed for a diesel and had to order another one. Next one came and same problem. Now we are waiting for the 3rd transmission to arrive and the car has been there for 2 weeks. Still waiting for my car.
Given my crazy experience so far with a car with only 5,000 miles, don't know what to say.
Audi Q5 is a great vehicle as long as you do not drive under 10 mph, I have a major transmission issue, 3rd replacement in 2 months, Audi corporate will not stand behind their products and work with you to satisfy yourself as a consumer, my vehicle has lurched and hesitated when coming to a stop causing 2 near accidents, I have never experienced such poor customer service form a corporate and a dealer standpoint, they act like it is my fault there is an issue, you have been warned!
transmission and customer service
I purchased the prestige S-line model, and love it. I was looking at the RX350, RDX, XC60,etc.. and this beats them out of the race. The car is awesome looking from the outside and has all the gadgets to keep you happy. It is more masculine so guys can drive this feeling good and I get alot of looks But best of all it does not feel like you are driving an SUV but more like a car. Space is just right, but if needing to hall more stuff in the hatch, then this may not be for you, but if your getting around town, taking kids and going to work this is perfect.
B&O sound system, panoramic roof, side assist, park assist, smooth ride and interior detail.
Ipod/Iphone charge station in center console, able to close trunk from interior switch
Nice car. Interior design and quality are substantial. Handles exceptionally well. Power is faultless. Gives a feeling of total control over driving experience. Stock stereo with satellite radio is outstanding. Love that everything is lit at night, no fumbling for any controls. Easy integration with cell phone and i pod, voice commands work, nav. controls are confusing at first, but get better over time. There is still lots to learn about how to get the most out of the electronics. Roof rack is exceptionally easy to put on. A long list of suggested improvements, but still a killer car.
handling, power, feeling of control, quality of interior, large moon roof, sound of stereo. Car is for my spouse, it makes my 06 bmw 325 seem antique (but still can't match driving dynamics), but it's a SUV!
Smaller side mirrors! Simply too large, and block some sight/view when turning. Slightly easier to understand navigation and other controls. Ability to use radio without navigation controls. Adaptive headlights! Headlight washers. More back seat leg room. Ability to lower hatch with remote.
I changed from a Honda Accord coupe into the 2010 Q5 Premium Plus model with the S-Line package. I love the smooth ride, the quiet of the engine and the ability to pick up speed quickly. As for changing over from a coupe to a crossover, it has been seamless. The car is nimble, parks in standard spaces yet feels a lot larger when on the road. It also offers great general visibility from all sides. I didn't get the optional side assist feature, but still feel great about the views I do get.
I really love the media interface and multi-garage door function.
I could have done without the ashtray and cigarette lighter and used an additional charging port and more space for storing small things. I was also disappointed that the center console storage is rather small with only one shelf of space.
I purchased this vehicle a week ago. The driving experience has far exceeded expectations. The AWD keeps it glued to the road and the acceleration is very good. Acceleration from 0 to 20 MPH is not fast, but after 40 MPH, acceleration is sports car like. This is my first SUV and I was concerned about driving fun. However, the high up seating position affords excellent visibility, the Q5 handles like a car and it is an overall fun ride. I compared this to the RDX, XC60, RX350 and am very satisfied. The Q5 is a luxury SUV/car, that is just the right size. The Audi cockpit and attention to detail can't be beat. Also, the Q5 has plenty of room for the wife and kids.
Luxurious cockpit/interior, fun to drive, acceleration, folding side mirrors.
Need a place for the sunglasses, center console is small, gas mileage.
The interior is outstanding and the handling has been a pleasant surprise. It has the right amount of firmness and handles hills and acceleration beautifully. I am thoroughly impressed. The only negative comment I have is about the iDrive feature or whatever they call it. I was pretty proficient in the BMW iDrive and came to like it. I hope that I will eventually learn to navigate my Audi's too, but so far it has not been intuitive. I think I will come to like it but it is going to take a few weeks to get used to it.
The real time navigation and power tailgate are very nice touches. But my favorite feature is the way it handles.
I think a touch screen would be a nice enhancement to the iDrive.
I picked up a Black Prestige a few days ago. I own a Volvo XC90, but handling in the Q5 is far superior, as it drives as a sports car. We had a massive snowstorn last week, which has made roads slippery and icy in Wisconsin. I am very impressed with how the Q5 handles the road under these conditions. Regarding the purchase, I was between the Premium Plus with Nav and Prestige Packages. I went for the Prestige and paid the extra 3K, but I think the only accessory really worth the extra cost is the side-assist (only available for Prestige). I think the B&O Stereo is overrated. Overall, I am quite happy so far.
The MMI System is great once you get used to it, despite what you may read in car magazine reviews. These are done by people who spend a day with the car, so they don't learn to use it. The handling is spectacular, and the interior impeccable.
Better gas mileage.
This car has it all over the RX. It has better electronic gadgetry, handling, design and is a blast to drive. The seamless bluetooth integration with my IPhone was totally painless and automatically took all my contacts without even prompting me. The voice recognition is excellent and I can call people without taking my eyes off the road as well as enter a destination. The quattro drive system is awesome and the LED daytime running lights are very cool. The seats are very comfortable and lumbar support is fabulous. Great job Audi.
Seamless Bluetooth integration. SD card slots that lets you import both contacts and music to the hard drive. Voice recognition, LED lights, comfortable seats, folding mirrors, exceptional handling for a crossover. Quattro drive system is excellent and the real time traffic. Audi 3rd generation MMI.
A little more space between the brake and gas pedal. It would be Nice to close the rear tailgate door with the key remote and inside switch.
2010 Audi Q5 is good vehicle but reliability is sub par. I bought my Q5 in August 09. I had jerks with upshift and downshift due to improperly installed transmission filter which apparently was a factory defect. The convenience key also quit working and they had to change the whole convenience module. They fixed it all under warranty. When I called Audi they offered me a mere 5000 miles extension on warranty or $250 cash (for a $53000 car!!). Looks like they do not trust their own product. I am just frustrated that I have been sold a defective product.
Superior Handling, good power, MMI is great (steep learning curve though!), Sleek interiors, Audi Side assist, Bang and Oleufson Sound system, Panoramic sun roof
Improve reliability and customer service, big transmission tunnel in the middle of rear foot space is not good, Leather seats not completely leather, obvious fabrics seed on the sides and spaces between seats.
Just picked up my Q5. This is the first luxury SUV that I've owned. The last time I experienced quality like this was when I owned a Jaguar. The ride is terrific. It's solid, responsive and absolutely a ton of fun to drive. Audi has combined looks, performance and fun in their 2010 Q5! I've started reading the owner's manual to get up to speed. There is a lot to this car and it will take awhile to understand all the bells and whistles but it's worth it. I bought a Meteor Gray (great color) Premium Plus and added 19" wheels and the B&O stereo. I'm looking forward to driving this vehicle for a long time. Test drive one of these and you'll see that Audi has it all over Mercedes, BMW & Lexus.
The daytime halogen lights, interior styling and comfort, Panorama roof, B&O Stereo, exterior looks and driveability.
Takes awhile to learn all the features, but worth it.
My husband and I sold our 15 year old BMW 530 and bought this wonderful vehicle. I drive it most days and just love it. It's not too high, so I don't feel like I have to step up to get in to it. It's so fun to drive, I'm getting in to work early because I can't wait to drive it. I can't find anything about it I would change. The mileage is great! Where has this vehicle been all these years! I'm sold! I'm quite sure I'll never drive anything else.
Handling, fold down rear seats. The back is high enough so I don't have to bend down to put in or take out anything. Love the forward view!
Ordered our Q5 Prestige Pkg Audi on 27 Jul and on 3 Nov it arrived. The Q5 was worth the wait! Get the S-line pkg. The 20 inch chrome wheels put the finishing touch on this black beauty. This is a great looking SUV with the best handling, ride, and appearance of all the mid-size SUVs (BMW/Lexus etc). Try the Q5 if you're tired of seeing yourself at every traffic-light and/or parking space. My wife loves the way it handles and rides and the engine has enough power to satisfy her driving habits. I've owned other Audi's making us qualified for a $1K loyalty discount. It has a first class dynamic 505 watt sound system. The Q5's Quattro suspension system is like nothing you have ever driven.
This is my very first car. My previous car was a 1997 Honda SUV that was handed down to me by my parents in 1997 when I was a teenager. Interior: A+ Amazing. Largest panoramic roof in its class. Great finish compared to other luxury SUVs. Audio: A+ The MMI interface allows you to control your Ipod on the MMI 6.5'' (I think) screen. Very useful. There are also 2 more speakers, 2 more than other luxury SUVs. Performance: Drives like a sports-sedan. A+ Uniqueness: Hardest car to get in North America (Forbers article). Day-time running LED lights. Design and style is different than other "BOX" SUVs. Beats comparable SUVs like Lexus, X5, X3, Acuras, etc.
Made in Germany, unlike 99% of other luxury SUVs. MMI interface for Ipod and CDs = Wunderbar. Day-time running LED lights. Turns heads. Panoramic Roof, largest in its class. Side look, front look is unique. LED tail lights. Lumbar support adjustment for front seats.
The design of air-cond center grills should be more stylish. It looks like an early 2000 grill. The other grills are fine. An option for a higher HP version of the Q5. 270 is adequate but allow buyers to upgrade to a higher HP model. The transmission, at times, in low speeds is not smooth.
I was coming down from a larger SUV and forgot how much fun a car could be to drive and I picked the perfect vehicle to remind me of that. Performance transmission gear sends you off like a rocket, tight handling like a sports model and a great exterior make this price the deal of the year. My family of 5 fits comfortably. Not a lot of cargo room, hopefully future designs will take that into consideration. Only complaint is difficult-to-use navigation system and it doesn't always take most efficient route (but still worth getting).
Exterior style, tight handling, sports transmission.
Cargo room could be larger.
Great car to drive for short and long distances. I drive it during great traffic hours via NYC and it is fantastic! Car handling, design, interactive navigation, great stereo as well as huge sun roof are fantastic. I had BMW sport wagon and there is no comparison, as Audi is much better.
Handling, navigation, stereo, design.
I don't know the Sirius system well yet. The design of it is not as simple as in other cars I had.
What an awesome vehicle. Only owned one foreign car, an Accord. Was shopping for several xovers and fell in love with this vehicle immediately. DO NOT test drive this beast, otherwise you will love it. Handles like a sedan and I haven't yet broken in, so I've only touched the surface of this Q5's potential. Heard people say Audi's were nice but never really liked any of their sedans, except for the TT. If this Q5 is decently reliable, I'll be an Audi purchaser again. Love my Q5!!
Gorgeous interior. Solidly built. Awesome handling and braking. No nonsense Giddyup. Bluetooth, MMI and folding mirrors and liftgate.
More engine choices...Diesel please.
Owned a BMW 325XI for 4 years and needed an SUV. Drove everything in the class, X3, VW Toureg, Nissan Murano, Toyota Highlander Mercedes etc and nothing at all comes even close to the level of refinement, exterior looks, interior (Audi sets the bench mark here). 270 Bhp, stunning LED daytime running lights, adequate usable space with the seats folded down. My wife absolutely loves it and made quick work of her first Costco run in the Q5 easily loading everything into the back with a smile on her face. (happy wife, happy life). Too bad the 3.0 TDI that is in the Q7 is not available in the Q5 at this time.
Powered lift gate, easy drivability (easy to park and back up) great high driving position. Comfortable seats, great bluetooth and stereo. MMI is pretty cool (even works with the Iphone). Step on that gas pedal and it's gone! Fuel economy actually not bad for the 3.2.
B and O stereo should be automatically part of the premium package.
Wow! My Audi Q5 was delivered on Monday & what a sweet surprise! I had bought it sight unseen and w/out a test drive... I am impressed! The ride is smooth, it handles like a dream! The interior is classy comfortable & has enough bells & whistles to thrill any technophile! The Navigation is easy to use, bluetooth simple and the look is perfect! The panoramic sunroof is impressive providing the feel of a convertible! The exterior is beautiful with nice design and a sleek sexy look! This is a driver's dream in a mid-size SUV... Look out Lexus and BMW, there's a new kid in town!!!
Navigation, handling, smooth ride, comfort and classy interior! What's not to like! The exterior has nice lines and is a great design!
Would be nice if we could change the voice on the Navigation System...
Just had my Q5 for one week. Perfect blend of performance, luxury and practicality. Love the engine sound and the way it handles, except when I'm listening to the incredible B&O stereo. Can't wait to get through the break-in period. Still figuring out all the electronic controls. Love the bluetooth phone and ipod controls. Can't wait to get through break-in period and let her rip.
Design is understated but very classy. I think it will look sharp and fresh for a long time. Great front and rear seats - plenty of room for adults. Kids love the massive sunroof - it's almost a convertible. Rockin' stereo.
It's my first German car and I'm still getting used to all the controls. Give me another week & I'll have it nailed. I'd love to get better mileage, but....
