2014 Audi Q5 3.0T Premium Plus quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)

Review

I recently purchased a Q5.
I chose it as a medium option between the more expensive SUV's (X5/ML/Cayenne) and the more economic CRV/4runner/CX5's.
In retrospect, I would categorize it with the second group and is overpriced for the quality.

Peformance:
Feels faster than it actually drives, particularly in the 50-70 range needed to merge onto major highways.
The Q5 is fun to drive, until you look around and see that you're not accelerating as quiickly as you think.

Interior:
Cheap leather and interior surfaces look more similar to an accord or CRV than a luxury SUV.
The computer/MMI seems out of date and dial is tough to use.
Panorama sunroof is too big and gimicky.


Best Features

- exterior styling - lane change/blind spot assist is excellent - full time AWD

Worst Features

- make sunroof smaller (or remove all together) - more powerful air conditioner - add touch screen to computer/MMI (instead of rotating knob that is difficult to use)
Recommend (21) (66)
