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.

Persistent Sensor Problem At First but Fine Now

We bought this vehicle in June 2020 as a service loaner in another state, only 3400 miles on it ... like brand new. From the beginning the front sensors acted up inappropriately going off for no reason. The local dealership service was awesome in trying to figure out the problem but it took three trips, the third time leaving it there for a week. Turned out just by switching the sensors around it took care of the problem. Weird! Other than that we love this car better than the 2015 BMW X-3 diesel we had prior which had several issues with the exhaust system. It doesn’t handle quite as good as the Beemer but better than most SUV’s out there. It’s also quieter and, I think, more elegant than the X-3. Plus from what I’ve heard it will probably be more reliable overall. We love the Apple Car Play included and it’s forever, unlike the paid subscription that BMW offers. The controls are also more intuitive and the dash configuration with the map availability in both the screen and the driver’s dash is second to none. I wish you didn’t have to turn off the start/stop feature each time you drive but that’s a minor inconvenience. Seats are comfortable both front and back with the rear seat tilting back just a little for added comfort. The engine is quiet and quick enough for most folks. If you want a rocket get the SQ5 instead. The rear cargo as a little bit less room back there than the X-3 but it’s still fine for the two of us for road trips. We opted for a gray interior so I know it will require more cleaning than the basic black but I love the look. So far so good!

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.
