This year’s car model caters to the norm, and has today’s latest innovations that Audi has become renowned for.
The 2012 Q5 ranks first among its eight compact SUV competitors in the luxury category. This truly speaks to the engineering skill of Audi. This basis has been taken from more than 30 auto reviews published for safety and dependability, as well as test drives and reviews conducted with the Audi Q5.
Many who test drive the 2012 Q5 have concluded that the it is worth paying for if your budget allows and that it’s a truly astounding luxury vehicle.

The 2012 Audi Q5 will serve as a great family SUV that has remarkable driving technology and gives smooth transportation with a matching modern trendiness. It can accommodate around three kids in the rear seats, but is more apt to suit 2 adults or teenagers. However, there is a rear-sliding seat that allows for more space and legroom. The only problem about the Q5 is the cargo space – or lack thereof.
However, the ability to serve as a family SUV is not the main concern of most automotive reviewers. The important thing about any car is its overall performance and the 2012 Q5 performs excellently. In terms of power, the Q5 has a 2.0-litre base with a turbocharged engine that comes with 4 cylinders. It also comes in a 3.2-litre base that is paired with a V6 turbocharged engine; an upgrade that customers are apt to take. This makes the Q5 quite a fuel-efficient SUV.
The only thing about the Audi Q5 is that add-ons and upgrades can create quite a dent in the ol’ wallet and start at around $36,000 to $40,000 dollars just on the base model. It is well-worth it though, knowing that customers will get a sunroof, GPS navigation system and heated front seats. However, Consumer Guide recommends simply sticking with the base trim.
The Audi Q5 has four different trims that have become the new standard for AWD vehicles. Getting a Premium Plus trim would give more advance features like Bluetooth and an improved sound system. The Prestige would give a V6 3.2-liter engine for longer drives. The Prestige also features a rearview camera, a blind spot monitoring scheme and for consumers who love music loud, it also comes with a 14-speaker audio system power by Bang and Olufsen.
The 2012 Audi Q5 can give great reliability, sleek performance and true comfort. There will always be variations among customers’ wants and needs, so let the final verdict be with you and go out there and test drive a Q5 today.
