2016 Audi Q5 SUV 3.0T Premium Plus quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

I have driven BMWs since 1999. I owned a 2000 540i, a 2004 X-5 4.4, a 2008 750iL, and a 2011 535i with the sport package. At some point, between the 2008 and 2011 models, BMW turned into Lexus. The 2011 535i was a thoroughly competent vehicle. It had an excellent engine. Everything else was just vanilla. It simply was not the type of car you looked forward to driving. I bought a 2016 Q5 3.0T. Its great to drive a true German car again. The steering in this car allows you to feel the road. The suspension is firm and engaged but doesn't come close to feeling harsh. There are plenty of luxury features. in short, if you enjoy driving a car but like the convenience of an SUV, this is simply a great car.

Review

Traded in a 2.0 liter q5. For loaded 3.0. Just love this vehicle. It is heavier then the 2.0 and better in ice and snow. The 3.0 liter is very quick and really goes when you need it. It is quiet with windows up and the sun roof is huge with no vibration with Windows up. A first for me. Voice command could be better and that's my only complaint. Quiet ride which is stiff and secure which I prefer. Decided to buy before model change because I knew what I was getting and really like this model.

2016 Audi Q5 SUV 2.0T Premium Plus quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

The Q5 is a solid performer in the SUV luxury class. I am a full size guy- 6 feet and 222 lbs and it is very comfortable to drive. Handles well. Excellent sound system. Nav ststem needs to be updated and was in the 2017 model Q7. The version I have is very quirky to use and the female voice sounds like an 80 year old woman ( no disrespect intended). Excellent trunk space and seats go down easily. Other than Nav system the technology is very good.

2016 Audi Q5 SUV 3.0T Prestige quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

This crossover is terrific. Design, ride, engine(3.0), cabin, acceleration...you name it and wow. Meets and exceeds our expectations. Technology is good but not up to some of its competitors in all aspects. Back up camera view is blue and orange....Not the best for visibility for the driver. No collision avoidance...should be standard. Coming in 2017? Blind spot alert is very visible, a plus. Instruments well laid out. Controls intuitive...no more smudges on the screen. Sound system(B&O) aka as concert hall, very rich. Seat pre sets: steering wheel not included, a big oversight by Audi. Wipers and lights wonderful. Cabin noise could be less. Wife is 5'2" so access is easy compared to other suv's.
