Traded in my leased 2020 Q5 Premium Plus for this Q5 Sportback. I really like the sleeker styling and there is very little cargo capacity lost from the more coupe like roof line. This Prestige trim has all the tech that you could ask for, the only minor issue is that, due to chip shortages, there is no wireless phone charger, which my previous Q5 had. I believe that the Q5 is a better overall value, feature for feature, than either the X3 or the GLC. I’m looking forward to many happy years with this vehicle.

Does Audi pay for good reviews?

I’m confused on so many levels. First, I paid $58k for my sport back and got $1500 off so the pricing is off. Pro: I love the way it drives but this is the only pro. Cons: I had this car for less than 1 year and it had 2 extremely unsafe recalls. The first one I would be driving, get ready to turn and my car would slam on its breaks and strangle me with the seatbelt. I had my Audi serviced and they fixed this. The second one my car could just stop because of a fail safe. We have never spilled anything in the backseat but you should obviously be able to do that. Most of the time kids Are in the back seat. All of a sudden my car was acting weird and I checked to see if Audi had a recall. Sure thing, recall. Oh your car can just stop in the middle of the road. I called Audi. They didn’t have the parts to correct the problem, didn’t know when they would have them, and have no loaners because they sold them. I asked well, what do your customers do because this is a huge safety issue and you have no solution? You can contact customer service. That was the response. My response was to trade in my car for a different brand. I have never ever had these issues and I will never buy another Audi. It should’ve been a red flag when the finance guy was freaking out when I wouldn’t buy the prepaid services. It really was a red flag but I ignored it. This brand is extremely unsafe.

I really like to look of the Q5 Sportback. I've had the vehicle for a month. It rides very smoothly. I like all of the extras that came on it - Prestige package. It drives well in the snow since it is a quattro. The fuel efficiency is right at what is is rated for given that it is still under 1,500 miles. I love the green exterior with brown interior. The trunk space is good, but with the Sportback, it doesn't have the height as the other Q5.

I just love my Q5 Sportback. The beautiful interior is equipped with lots of high tech options. It's a quiet ride and fun to drive, especially the dynamic drive. The back seat might could be a touch bigger, but it's OK for short trips.

I’ve owned Audi’s since 2002 and just find these are the cars for me. I’ve tried driving other cars in its class, but always come back to the drive and feel of Audi’s. I’ve had two A4s, two Q5s and now the Q5 Sportback. The Sportback is just an unbelievably nice all around car. I’ve read the reviews as compared to other like class cars which claim a lack of performance but frankly this car with 2.0 engine is enough for me as I’m not in any drag race and I like the smooth but firm ride. All my Audi’s have been reliable except the 2009 which had an issue with oil burn. I gave my 2012 to my son which he’s now up to 110,000 miles. He’s had to replace a wheel sensor which was $600 and now needs to replace original 10 year old battery. Not bad for a 10 year car. Needless to say, I’m an Audi fan and the new technology and displays are great.
