2011 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
I bought a used 2010 X3, drove it for three weeks and hated it. Rode like a brick on concrete wheels (ultrastiff).
I've owned BMW's before and can say that the X3 is a complete mess.
Returned it to dealer who gave me full value back - thanks Carmax.
Having success years ago with an A4, I test drove the Q5 and bought it on the spot. A similarly equipped unit from Benz or BMW would be thousands more.
BTW - A voluntary recall is in effect for the 2011 Q5 and it deals with a computer update that improves transmission shifting.
(downshifting was a bit rough).
Existing inventory on dealers lots should already be updated.
The update on mine did the trick and the trans works perfectly
Interior is heads above BMW and Benz
Legendary Quattro drive is solid.
