I drove a VW before and this is my first Audi. The interior and ergonomics are a big step up and thoughtfully designed. I drive mainly on the highways and handling is quite responsive for an SUV. I’m very pleased.

2020 Audi Q5 e Excellent Ride

Initial thoughts after putting 850 miles on Q5 e. It is quiet, even when the gas engine is on and very smooth. Handling is precise, but the emphasis is more on comfort than sportiness. The interior is beautiful and high quality, as would be expected. The ambient lighting is a very cool feature and you can set it to suit your taste. My limited experience with the driving assistance features is that they work well. Adaptive cruise control is great and the lane keep assist set to early keeps the car centered in the lane without too much ping-ponging. Traffic Jam assist also works well and brings the car to a complete stop. The car has been very efficient and easy to rum errands and quick trips on EV alone. In the warmer weather it easily gets 25 miles on a full charge. I've done a 140 mile trip and got 42 mpg, though I'm sure this will vary depending on conditions and driving style. Best to keep it charged up to minimize gas consumption. There are all sorts of efficiency aids to help you get the most out of every gallon of gas. This car is very quick in Dynamic mode and both the gas engine and electric motor are used. Charging is quick and easy. Best to have a 240 V outlet for charging, which does a full charge in 2 hours. Charging with a 110 V outlet works, but is painfully slow. The sound system is great, which is key in such a quiet car. I admit I look for excuses to go for a ride in this thing. It is very relaxing.

Awesome so far

I usually drive the Lexus RX, bought this after a lot of research and the drive makes me appreciate the road completely. Love this car so far. It grips the road, handling and acceleration are solid. and it is a standard 4 wheel drive. The premium plus trim is nice. Good gas mileage. Compared to the Lexus, the pros are the acceleration the handling sporty ride, the cons are that you feel road more if you think that is a bad thing. Nice range for a full tank.

Great SUV and it is fun to drive an a/c works. We had a BMW x3 and the a/c could not keep up with the heat in Arizona. We love it.

Want a Dipstick?

The VW part number is 06K115611D, available from any VW dealer. For many years Audi has relied on an electronic bar graph readout in the infotainment system for displaying the oil level. The Audi 2.0T comes with a plug in the dipstick tube. I can understand Audi's logic where most people never check their oil level. The problem with this approach is you never can see the oil, touch it. smell it. If the head gasket started leaking you MIGHT see white creamy stuff on the oil filler cap. Color me old school, but a dipstick allows access to the oil. Aforementioned head gasket leak would readily show up on the dipstick (water in the oil) as white creamy blobs. Old oil (not changed at proper intervals) will be very black, might even smell burnt. An electronic display of the oil level says nothing about the condition of the oil, or the consistency (viscosity). Modern synthetic oils are less prone to problems, but issues can still occur. The Audi 2.0T engine is part of a family of VW engines. The newer VW 2.0T Passat engines have a dipstick. The part number for the dipstick tube is identical to the 2020 Audi 2.0T. Same for the older 1.8T engine, predecessor to the 2020 VW 2.0T. I have a 2017 1.8T Jetta; tried the dipstick in the 2020 Audi Q5, and it read the oil level perfectly, just covering all the hash marks. This Q5 has factory fill, about 1500 miles on it.
