Hated Crossovers until this!

2010 Audi Q5 3.2 Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
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.
