The Q5 is a Great Crossover

Waited several months,have driven it for 2, and it was worth the wait! 3.2 engine is very quick and paired with the S line handling package, you will have the feel and response of a much more expensive sports car. In Houston traffic, the blind spot warning feature is fantastic and it should be required on every vehicle. Drive the others in this class, drive this one last, and use the $ you save to take a nice driving vacation!

I've had my Audi Q5 S for 5 months. It's incredible. It makes doing your errands fun. 3.2 engine and B&O sound system worth it. The mileage it gets really surprised us. I drove every foreign SUV out there. Some have fancier interiors, but none of them had the fun SPORT drive that the Q5 S has. You start driving and don't want to stop. From now on its always Audi for me. Turns the corner on a dime and hugs the road. Everyone should test drive!!!!

Just purchased the 2012 Audi Q5 2.0T Prem Plus and love it. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a smaller SUV that gets 25mpg and handles like a sports car! The only complaint I have is that heated seats should be turned up a notch as on the highest setting they really are just luke warm at best. Some Audi owner must have overcooked their buns and so now we all have to suffer.

Stylish and cool technology

I test drove many luxury crossovers and sedans, Audi was by far the best. While my Q5 only has four cylinders - it is turbo charged and has quick pick up. Awesome performance and impressive technology. I love the MMI Navigation. I plugged my old iPod into a handy connection in my glovebox and can listen to all my tunes. My iPhone connects when I get in the car and voice command helps with hands free dialing. I really love the fact I do not need a key - keyless entry, push button start and memory seats. To lock the door, I just swipe my hand over the handle and it folds up the side mirrors while locking. The hatch is great - push button close with no effort. The spare tire is deflated but there is an air compressor included. I cannot forget to mention the sun roof - it spans the entire front and back seat with the roof window opening midway. Did I mention the get up and go? It gets up and goes and gets good gas mileage with four cylinders? At 2500 miles I am averaging 25 MPG and I commute 50 miles RT to work each day on the freeway. I am very happy with my purchase. My 2nd pick would be the Audi A6.

most reliable car i ve owned

by from cleveland metro area on September 22, 2012

powerfull enough when needed - turbo, but very fuel efficient on highway - only 2 liter engine, on technical data 27mpg, but i usually easily make 32-34 mpg while driving 25 miles to work.

Q5 Audi

by from Colorado on December 21, 2012

We purchased a used Q5 4200 miles and are very pleased with it. Great on gas, rides nice and has plenty of power for passing. This has the smaller engine but is great.

This is the best car I have ever owned. When I first bought my Q5 I would wake up in the mornings looking forward to drive it. I am still loving though after two years, and still feel good getting into it.. It is relibale, quick, comfortable and feels very safe on the road. I would definitely recommend it. I also bought the Audi care plan and I am very happy I did. It may seem pricey but totally worth it. I am actually suprosed it was not more.

ordered 2012 Q5 2.0T and can say this was a superb choice. Super fun to drive, very comfortable and great gas mileage. Can't beat a German car for luxury and quality. AWD is amazing at holding the road and the 2.0T has got to be one of the best production engines available.

Great SUV, with One Exception: Ride

The only issue we have with our new Audi Q5 is its hash ride. Everything else about the MY12 Q5 makes it an awesome vehicle to own. If you can live without some of the individual options and option packages, the price is not bad when comparing the Audi to other premium SUVs and crossovers. It reach way beyond $50,000.00 if you are not careful. We nearly bought a new '12 Volvo XC60. The Volvo was far nicer in many ways and more car-like than truck-like, as with our Q5. With only one XC60 AWD on the dealer's lot in our hometown and one or two in all of upstate, NY, we chose the Q5 due to the availability of several at each regional dealership. If you desire a comfortable ride, go with the Volvo XC60 or even a VW Tiguan SEL. If you want an Audi with room and a non-harsh ride, the A4 wagon is a great choice. We are happy with the Q5, but will not get another unless the next generation features a more comfortable ride.

One of the most practical cars I've owned

For my work I have to drive about 60,000km per year and I am required to haul a bunch of work related cargo as well. Where I live in the North East, winter driving can be challenging. The Q5 has exceeded my expectations for reliability, comfort, sportiness, cargo space and overall fun to drive. I've taken the family on 2 road trips to Florida and it was the ideal way to travel for a family of 4. At 186,000km after 3 years, the car still feels and looks new and I plan on driving it at least 3 more years. Safe and solid with very reasonable consumption it is a great vehicle!
