Great Vehicle in all ways but one
By db703 on


2013 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


I purchased the 2013 Premium-Plus in October, 2012 and now have ten thousand miles and can give an objective overview.
Love the vehicle, the fit and finish is exceptional.
It's quiet, quick, nimble and tight when driving.
The suspension is quite nice, not to rough and no bounce whatsoever.
The only complaint is that the multimedia system is dated for a 2013 model, especially in this class segment.

Best Features

It's quiet, comfortable, spacious seats, excellent craftsmanship, great for short and long trips, excellent on the highway and it has great sounding speakers with excellent clarity.

Worst Features

Fix the multimedia system and the center armrest. No way should someone spend $40k+ on a vehicle and have companies such as Ford have more advanced multimedia systems. The exception is that the sound quality is excellent. And take the iPod/iPhone connector out of the glove-box. Some people, such as myself, keep their music on their iPhone and don't want the hassle of having to reach over to put our device into the glove-box to hear our music. Granted, I bought this vehicle for it's performance, comfort and safety, but when you drive almost twenty thousand miles a year, you prefer a better, and more user-friendly, interactive multimedia experience.
