2012 Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige: a SUV with the spirit of a sports car

The Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige is the top of the line for the smaller of the Audi luxury utility vehicles and while the Q7 is the vehicle looked at for its performance – the Q5 fitted with the 3.2L V6 and the Drive Select system is one of the entertaining SUVs that I ever had the pleasure of driving.

My Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige test was fitted with the optional S exterior package which unique Titanium finish 20” with a sporty split design wrapped in summer tires. The big, bold fascia that shares an design scheme with the of the current Audi lineup a large central grille flanked by smaller openings contain the circular fog lights. The have a naturally darkened with LED trim along the of the large, bright projection Along the lower edge of the fascia, the central section below the grille angles with a black splitter-style piece running along the to enhance the sporty nature of the Q5 the S Line package. The grille and fog areas are all finished in black to the S Line package and in my opinion…this is a must-have.

The only chrome the front end after the application of the S package is found in the Audi rings’ logo and in the trim within the headlights. The protruding lines run up through the long, hood and meet the windshield in a angle that makes for a slippery top line.

Along the 2012 Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige has a greenhouse with a roofline begins sloping back past the B pillar and is only broken up by the notch that the roof and the rear hatch with a subtle spoiler at that junction. This bolsters the sporty look of the Q5, a very “fast look” the side while the low, stance provided by the S Line 20” help depart from the wagon look often by smaller SUVs. The trim the windows and along the bottom of the are all matte black rather chrome (thanks again to the S package) and when combined the darkened side windows, the Q5 has a sinister look.

The wheel openings are fully by the S Line 20” dark wheels and the edge of the front and rear openings flow down the hard lower body that runs between the There is also a light line that runs the shoulder line of the Q5 that to give this small SUV a fluid design. Finally, the direction of the body lines with the stance of the Q5 gives small SUV the look of a vehicle is built to perform.

Across the the aggressive design of the 2012 Q5 3.2 Prestige continues with angled tail lights with bright LEDs and the lower rear fascia is a darkened area that around the dual polished tips. Like the side the rear glass is tinted dark to add to the menacing look of the Q5. One of the interesting features of the exterior has to do with how great it looks but it is a functionality feature as the design of the liftgate allows for a massive

Unlike many SUVs have a center section opens, the entire rear of the Q5 opens – tail lights and – to for plenty of loading space the rear cargo area.

In a that is filled with that are hard to differentiate a AWD station wagon and a truly utility vehicle, the 2012 Q5 3.2 Prestige with the S Line looks the part of a performance SUV. More importantly, the design cues of the Q5 allow roomy compact SUV a far more look in a class packed of ultra vanilla vehicles. The Q5 has an attitude that most SUV hope that their has once they are done it and I think that it looks

The passenger allows just as much but unlike some other SUVs, the Q5 has tons of leg room for passengers when the front are adjusted for a taller driver and passenger.

If you only need seating for two, the center area folds down an arm rest with cupholders and if you need any rear seating – the entire rear seat down to make for one massive area. The front seats get of their own with both and cooling options that keep an icy drink cool and a hot toasty.

One feature of the 2012 Audi Q5 3.2 is the massive panoramic sunroof stretches across the front and seats. The Q5 comes with a sunshade that blocks out the sun you don’t want it but, many other models have a sunshade over a sunroof – you can open the glass opening the shade.

The 2012 Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige is with a naturally aspirated V6 that sends 270 horsepower and of torque to all four wheels via a six Tiptronic automatic transmission and advanced four wheel system. This system offers great grip in the icy months but I drove it in the middle of – meaning that I tested the capabilities of the Q5…and it responded well.

A key feature of the Audi handling properties and ability to to different environments and driver is the Audi Drive Select This is controlled by either a screen in the system setup or by the button mounted on the center The driver can choose between Dynamic, Auto or Individual and system controls the characteristics of the the transmission, the steering system and the When set to Comfort, the 2012 Q5 a smooth ride that you expect from a luxury

While it still offers handling, the steering is calmer, the is softer and the transmission shifts gently and at lower RPMs. you want more performance, you can Dynamic mode which the suspension and sharpens the steering while also offering shifts and higher RPMs the transmission shifts. When set to mode, the true handling of the Audi Q5 really shine with cornering ability in turns that are shocking a small SUV. This is a that allows the driver to attack the twisties with no body roll – even hammering tight turns at speeds. If you don’t have a need for Comfort or Dynamic you can set the Q5 to Auto mode and the system to how the driver is handling the vehicle.

In addition to the driving characteristics, the 2012 Q5 3.2 Prestige offers incredible control via the steering wheel paddle shifters. When through the turns of a desolate road, the paddle shifters me to keep the 3.2L V6 right in the for the best possible acceleration out of turns. The 270 horsepower doesn’t the Q5 a straight line missile but it more than enough to get the roomy little Q5 up to the speed quicker than the average SUV will ever really

With reported 0-60mph in the 6 second range, the Q5 is surprisingly but the gearing really allows the V6 to shine when roaring an open road or when quickly out of a hard set of turns.

The Q5 will in a hurry up over the 100mph and it will do so as smooth as glass. in Comfort mode, the Q5 glides the highway, cutting through as easily as a sports car with none of the road noise or noise transferred into the

In my experiences, Dynamic mode has its on the highway as well but they are not as as they are on twisty back and the one downfall to Dynamic mode is it does stiffen the suspension – sending some of the road through the suspension.

I can safely say the 2012 Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige is the SUV sine the Jeep Grand SRT8 that has truly my blood pumping with the to hurdle this compact – yet roomy- SUV through turns some sports cars not handle. The Q5 is a very clear that Audi has applied of high performance engineering to entire lineup…right down to compact SUV.

I wouldn’t hesitate to say that the Audi Q5 3.2 Prestige provides as “fun to drive” factor as sports cars available on the US Of all of the SUVs that I have none of the smaller models handled as well as the Q5 and only the Grand Cherokee SRT8 to mind as an SUV that offers as driving excitement as the Q5.
