2014 Audi Q5 PREMIUM PLUS 2.0L Progressiv
The 2015 Audi Q5 delivers great acceleration, good handling, and impressive fuel efficiency, all with more height and ground clearance compared to a sedan or sport wagon-essentially what every luxury compact crossover shopper seeks. In front, the driver and front passenger have a high seating position, and plenty of leg and head room. The seats have wide cushions with enough bolstering to make a lot of people comfortable, slim or not so slim. The back seat also doles out reasonable leg room, thanks to a wheelbase that's relatively long. The Q5's cabin is nicely detailed, about the best to be found in its compact-luxury niche.
The 2015 Audi Q5 takes a subtle approach to SUV styling-choosing handsome, simple design over anything too flashy. 2014’s minor restyling reshaped the grille and slimmed down the headlamps, and capped it with LED taillamps, but did nothing to upend the Q5's best features--its carlike curves and its closeness to the rest of the Audi A4/A5 lineup.
The 2015 Audi Q5 makes the most of its compact footprint, and it wraps its passengers in a spacious, comfortable, luxurious cabin. There's plenty of room for their cargo, too.With the seats folded, the Q5 moves from about 29 cubic feet to more than 57 cubic feet of storage space. There's enough cargo room for four roll-on suitcases and a clear view out the rear hatch glass. Small storage abounds, down to the 1-liter cup holders molded in all the doors, the console, and the fold-down armrest in the backseat.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Audi Q5 four stars overall, with a five-star side-impact rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives it top 'good' ratings, and now with those best 'good' ratings in the rigorous small overlap frontal impact test, plus effective front crash prevention (active safety) technology, it's now on the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ list. The Q5 is also blessed with good visibility. It has large side mirrors, and the rear seats don't obstruct too much of the view to the back, which translates into good outward visibility even without the high-tech solutions.
