Best Reason to Buy the Audi Q5: Exterior styling
The Sport is close to being a different suv from the non-sport explorers, the unique wheels and tires, the blacked out features set it apart.<br />

We came from a very understated Audi Q5 and the wife liked this better.

Not a fan of the sirius antenna - would suggest a shark fin replacement (which is easily done)

Compared to 2013 Ford Explorer (Tuxedo black)

Best Reason to Buy the Audi Q5: Fuel economy
I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That&#039;s without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Audi Q5: Controls and instruments
There are so many tasks packed into the MMI system that it can be a bit confusing to do while driving.

A member in California, United States

Compared to 2013 Ford Explorer (Tuxedo black)

Best Reason to Buy the Audi Q5: Exterior styling
The first thing most of us see that attracts us to a vehicle is its styling. Among small, luxury SUVs the Q5 stands out as among the most attractive. I liked the older X3, but not the new swooping curve model. The Q7 seems portly to me; the Q3 truncated.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Audi Q5: Fuel economy
I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash.

Other Reasons to Buy the Audi Q5: Powertrain performance, Handling, Quietness, Materials & workmanship

Compared to 2013 Ford Explorer (Tuxedo black)

Best Reason to Buy the Audi Q5: Powertrain performance
Smooth and efficient, works well with transmission, especially at moderate speeds, although with 2.0 TDI transmission is a bit hesitant to downshift when overtaking at high speed and uphill.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Audi Q5: Price or payments
One of the priciest vehicles in its class, (very) costly options

Other Reasons to Buy the Audi Q5: Handling, Safety & braking, Interior styling, Materials & workmanship

Other Reasons Not to Buy the Audi Q5: Insurance & depreciation, Ride smoothness, Discounts & incentives
