Many ago there was a mini-sport utility called the Jeep versatile, and largely uncomfortable. The Jeep’s spawned multiple knock-offs every carmaker from the Suzuki Samurai to the successful All three continents have trying to get it right for the past 30 and it wasn’t until automakers converting cars into utility vehicles that the compact SUV was born.

The US has had some success, with the Escape and the late Saturn but the Europeans (champs in the wagon have largely been in the small-ute category. With the Q5, puts a large dose of and luxury into a compact and helps to set the bar in this growing

Driving Impressions

When we received the Audi Q5, we thought the appearance looked first Here was a small sport that looked stout and had well-proportioned lines, and was attractive to males and females. Before the inside of the Q5, we feared that the would be heavy with VW and misused burlwood trim.

Not close. We were pleasantly by the look and feel of the Q5’s and relieved that Audi has past looking like an Volkswagen.

Jumping into the car was a with high ceilings and large front doors for easy ingress and egress. The Q5 use the old switchblade style key, nor it have a push button You put the key fob remote into a slot and push the key to start.

Not very intuitive and having to the key fob from our pockets each was a bit annoying.

The big surprise is driving the Q5. responsive acceleration, handling and it sets a new standard for the small utility segment. ‎ It is amazingly for a 2.0 liter motor pulling a lb car. Audi publishes a 7.1 0-60 acceleration on their

Motor Trend measured 6.8

Looking over the competition Mercedes and BMW, both the GLK and the X3 don’t compare to the ride and handling of the Audi. The Q5 shares the chassis and it shows. Ride is a bit but the braking and handling is almost

Audi gets kudos for a fit and finish, both interior and it’s what you’d from a German luxury Panels line up well, close solidly and wind was barely detectable at speed, there was some road coming from the 235/60/18 Dunlop Grand Trek at freeway speeds. Audi cleaned up the interior with placed wood trim, a rear seat, special that fold down the seatbacks from the cargo and of course the auto-close rear

There were some of the Q5 that caused us to raise a few When driving in traffic the thing you will notice is the side mirrors, which are 10 inches tall and placed high in relation to the window Large side view are desirable when towing Seadoo to the lake and the Q5’s pound towing capacity this possible. But turning head to look out at cars alongside, there is almost 2 of other vehicle that is by these mirrors.

The large mirrors clearly get in the way of seeing the car’s turn signals.

The observation came from the seat backs which are a on the sides. When the Q5 goes some uneven pavement it the backs of the rear seat to rub and you get We were like, “are you

The third item we noticed was choice of front seat receptacles that extend quite a bit. So much so Audi placed a rectangular of felt on the backside of each belt receptacle so that it not rub against the center console. looking, but at least it didn’t

On the flipside the extended seat receptacles offer a very and easy to reach latch for the safety belts, as well as not too snug over jackets or clothing.

One Response to 2011 Audi Q5 Review The Benchmark Among Crossovers

I got the chance to this car and it s one of the best SUVs I driven.

The handling and braking is bar This vehicle corners a sports sedan and it will many out there. The ride is and the grip is impressive.

The best of the car though is the 2.0 liter Turbo mated to the 8-speed tiptronic At first glance it does not like the 2 liter engine can this car around but Motor s 6.8 second 0-60 was validated by my foot. Even better is was no turbo lag and there seemed to be power from any speed.

A big for this is the 8-speed transmission squeezes the most out of the engine. It s on the right gear and shifts are quick. Sometimes, it will once then shift if you re still prodding it on.

The big reward for the engine and tall gearing is mileage. At 70 mph, the tach is a hair above 2000 I measured exactly 32.0 mpg on a mile stretch of Highway

So there s my take. It s an awesome car the 2.0t and quite a bargain at with auto, leather, 18 wheels. It really trumps the more expensive 3.2l V6 isn t really any faster.
