Vehicle2012 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
ReviewDrives great, rides great - this is the best driving crossover/SUV I've even driven.
Better overall quality/finish than the BMW X3, and nothing else comes close.
The 2.0T engine has plenty of power, and the acceleration is much better than you would suspect - passing power on the highway is excellent.
Options on the 'Premium Plus' are nice - Zenon Lights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, sunroof, dual setting memory seats.
I don't know how much you get from a dual-zone climate control when you are sitting right next to the passenger - it's just one more thing to adjust.
The bluetooth hands-free connection to a mobile phone, and speaker/mic is excellent.
Best Features2.0T Engine, Audio System, Memory Seats, Performance, Ride, Fuel Economy, AWD. The overall fit/finish of the interior - from the leather seats, inlaid wood - this is one nice SUV. Drives likes a sports sedan. Plenty of head room for someone 6'3" - more than much larger vehicles. Fold flat back seats expand the cargo capacity with the flip of a lever. Automatic open/close rear hatch.
Worst FeaturesPremium Plus model should include a back-up camera, even my mother's Toyota RAV4 has a back-up camera. Controls for climate control are too complicated, and hard to adjust while driving - having to push one of four buttons then rotate a dial to change the temp or fan setting. Why are 5 spoke wheels such an expensive option, the 11 spoke rims are going to be much harder to clean. Shade/curtain for the sunroof should block more of the sun. Visors need slide-out extensions to make them wider when in use. More storage - where do you put your mobile phone while driving (at least a small tray?
