I had the pleasure of test driving the Audi Q5 this week, a car that I’ve admired for a while now. Outwardly Q5 has a gorgeously balanced look, interior wise it’s Audi upmarket all the way.
My car for the day was the 2012 3.2 Quattro, Audi Q5 Prestige, my biggest problem here is going to be finding the space to write ALL the graet points on this vehicle, I can’t emphasize what a pleasure it truly was – with an aggressive exterior, a luxurious interior, a drivetrain that provides a brilliant driving experience, Q5 is a true sports utility vehicle.
