2012 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Love this car - I'm still breaking it in, but having had 3 new A4's in the last 12 years, this one felt like coming home (albeit with larger rooms).

Have kiddies on the way so the extra room will help - cargo space is not huge but is adequate.

The 2.0 litre had more balls than I expected - nowhere near as clunky as the Q7 I test drove
- this one handles like the 2009 A4 with the same motor - pulls nicely and sits down while cornering.

The moonlight blue is stunning - I wished I could've seen one with the cinammon interior but only the light tan was available.

You'll notice the screen displays are sharper - kind of like going from an iPhone 3G to the sharper 4.

Best Features

Advanced key - if you've never had as was my case - is now my favorite feature in a car besides rain sense wipers. The push button tailgate closure - really nice. Not sure I'll ever use it, but being able to play DVD's sounds pretty cool - disabled during driving naturally - so I'm struggling to imagine the application. Camping?

Worst Features

Creating Navigation to destination addresses is not trivial
