Bought the vehicle for my wife as a birthday gift. I have never been one for Audi though I’ve never owned one. Here’s the big but, I’m impressed with the quality, attention to detail, fit and finish, performance, ride quality and handling. It has it all and does it all very well. Now this is coming from someone that has worked in the service side of a Chrysler (aka Fiat Chrysler) for almost 20 years as a technician and shop foreman as well as a manager at a Gm dealership for 3 years. So I’m not easily impressed with vehicles. Even though we also sell Alfa Romeo (Stelvio) and is a good competitive model to the Q5 it’s still clear the Audi Q5 is the benchmark. My only complaint would be the lack of a touchscreen infotainment system. Come on Audi! Even a fiat pop has one. Overall the 18 Audi Q5 is a very well built vehicle. In a rapidly growing segment the Q5 is leader of the luxury pack. Compare them all and you’ll see package for package you can’t beat the Q5 in price. The Audi virtual cockpit is icing on the cake
very happy with my new ghibli. Peter was very nice and got me a great deal! They beat the other competitor's price...plus they matched my rate from m y credit union...So far, I am very happy with the service from Bergen County
Just made my fifth Audi Purchase here and take it from me, Audi Hawthorne is Awesome and exceeded all other Dealerships by Far.. Their new Facilty is Huge, the Largest, most immaculate and accommodating within the entire east coast. My Sales person Rafael Rosario was exceptional, professional, direct, no haggling and respectful. He Quickly got me the Q5 i wanted and was able to beat Audi Manhattans and Beiner Audi Pricing by far.
If you're looking for competitive pricing along with spectacular service, dont go anywhere esle. Stop by Audi Hawthorne and speak to Rafael Rosario, you will not be disappointed.
The Service Manager Joana Bell, The General Manager Nick Belli, Business Manager Kurtis Hughes, the Tech specialist Sebastian and service reps William were all amazing and made my Audi purchase experience Truly uniquely Phenomenal.
Most luxurious car I've ever owned

This car is like a dream. The ride is so smooth and the control I have while driving is amazing. It accelerates nicely and the turns are tight. It has so many bells and whistles technologically but they are easy to figure out.
This was the easiest and most professional experience of all

My salesman, Jason Spencer to me is what Audi Hawthorne stands for. Intergrity and service. It's not a slap on the back type of dealership. This is an all in place where from sales to service you are appreciated for not only buying but serviceing the vehicle as well. I am enjoying my experience and will pass it on to others who are looking for an Audi.
This is the 4th Audi we have leased

Excellent quality inside and out. A pleasure to drive. Great service from West County Audi. Performance exceeds my expectations to the max. Like to be seen driving this car.
In leasing our fourth Audi, we chose this newer dealership, Hawthorne Audi, and the experience proved to be really pleasurable and easy. Rafael Rosario, our salesman, was knowledgeable and honest in his dealing with us. He handled the transaction smoothly, guiding us through the process and helping us select a great Q5. He was easy to reach by email or phone and always responded quickly to needs. Today we also met Sebastian Sanchez whose job it was to go over the functions of the vehicle and he was terrific...an organized "teacher" of high tech vehicles! Paola Posada, the finance rep that met with us, was so easy to work with, never pressuring us to buy what we did not feel we wanted. Thank you all. Hawthorne Audi in a beautiful modern new building is worth visiting.
Recent Q5 Purchase
by Anonymous but Real Buyer from Clearwater, FL
January 5, 2019
Fantastic Car! I think the best value for money in the luxury crossover SUV segment, its real competition is really the BMW X3 (which I did not test drive). Really purchased for its safety features, but plenty luxurious and the drive/engine is fantastic, esp. in sport mode. Granted, first audi (or german luxury vehicle purchase) but could not be more thrilled!
We finally found a place that we can trust buying a car. Our experience with Rafael Rosario was a great one and the Audi Hawthorne team was welcoming and helpful. Thank you again for our vehicle and making us happy 😊 I would recommend checking out Audi Hawthorne.
From the BMW Family into the luxury Audi Family!

I love this vehicle! I have always owned BMWs..so I was hesitant about moving into another vehicle family. I am so glad I did! This car is great! It meets beyond my vehicular standards!
Rafael is amazing! We bought a Q7 from him this summer and then went right back to buy an A5 3 months later! he is honest and works hard to make sure his customers are happy! We received a very competitive price right from the start without having to play games. We walked in to test drive the car and left with one 2 hours later!
Best Value in It's Class
by JMull from New Ringgold, PA

After much research and dealership visits, I found the Audi Q5 to be the best in it's when compared to Volvo XC60, BMW X3, and Jaguar. Jaguar was completely out of price range compared to what was already loaded in the Audi Q5 and had what I believed to be an outdated infotainment system, it was not very user friendly. Although I liked the Volvo and its technology, I felt the design of the car to be underwhelming as well as being a slight grade in finishes below the Audi. As for BMW, the ride was just as smooth as the Audi, however, the BMW did not have the quattro handling system (neither did the rest) like the Audi. The Audi came with the options I wanted at a $2-3,000 less MSRP than the BMW. Also, a BMW with the no run-flat option tire is not readily available on the dealer's lot and has to be searched for or factory built. In all respects, the Audi Q5 just came out on top and the dealers were more willing to make a deal than the other brands.
In need of a replacement for my expiring lease, my wife and I returned to Audi Hawthorne having purchased our first Audi 4 months prior. We compared 2 models, test drove our preferred model, negotiated, financed, purchased and drove away - 3 hours from start to finish. Great experience!
Very modern, with a lot of technology.

The digital panel, is awesome! The “boat handle” is pretty and modern! The exterior with the new led lights looks pretty good in the night! I love this car!
Jason & Huey, what a great bunch of guys! Jason worked every avenue over 2 days not giving up until he was able to find me the best interest rate & financing for my pre owned 2018 Audi A4. it was a pleasure from the minute I walked in working with Huey and chatting with him, until I drove off in my new car. There was a point when I didn???t think I was going to get financing, but jason & Huey were a team and worked endlessly until it happened. I am so Thankful to Jason & Huey and their amazing team. I felt like a part of the family immediately, no stress or anxiety... I not only left with my dream car but I also left with new friends I highly recommend this dealership and These guys when looking for your next Audi! Thanks guys 😊
Up grade from previous Audi

So far we are thrilled with this new Audi. We went from an A4 sedan to the Q5 SUV. Looking forward to the same quality and reliability that our previous Audi gave us.
Alex is top notch. He gave great customer service and helped with all issues and questions I had. I would highly recommend him for anyone pursuing an Audi.

The car is very stylish, comfortable and technologically advanced. It also has a lot of get up and go-plenty of horsepower. I can't wait to see how it handles in the snow with the Quattro engine.
