Best Value in It's Class
January 2, 2019
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was completely out of price range compared to what was already loaded in the Audi Q5 and had what I believed to be an outdated infotainment system, it was not very user friendly.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.
