Snackable Review: Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 is a stylish, elegant, luxury SUV that fits perfectly into the family segment.

PLUS

  • It’s an Audi, so it’s pretty safe to assume the interiors of the Q5 are bursting with class.
  • The flexibility of the cabin is a big tick. We love that the rear seats can be flipped, folded and flattened to suit your needs.
  • Perhaps the most notable of the extras is the ‘Connect’ infotainment system that hooks in to Google Earth. It also offers Internet access for rear-seat passengers, which the kids will love.
  • Special mention goes to the Technik package, which includes three-zone climate control, reversing camera and sat navigation – a solution to the omission of these features in the base level model.
  • There’s also the luggage rail system to secure any items loaded into the back, at an extra $450.

MINUS

  • It may not be the most spacious, but it doesn’t compromise on comfort.
  • Its downside also includes wind noise, which is common in larger vehicles. While the large mirrors add to the visibility of the SUV, they can also get in the way and block out a bit of vision. We’re as confused as you are. They’re good and they’re bad.
  • While the Q5 is stylish, compared to others in the luxury SUV market, like say the Evoque or Discovery Sport, it’s not as pretty. We feel mean just saying it.
  • While the Technik package is a pro, it’ll cost you about $3890 extra, which forces us to pull out the red pen.
