Reviewed: 2009 Audi Q5

4dr SUV turbocharged 170hp 2.0L I4 Diesel 7-speed automated manual AWD

Why the 2009 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.

Handling

Precise and responsive for the small SUV

Safety & braking

Good predictable breaks (a bit on a soft side), perform well in emergency situations

Interior styling

Tasteful, not "over the top", looks simple, thus you have to compare it with other cars in this class to appreciate the interior quality (especially in basic materials, rather than in flashy elements)

Materials & workmanship

High quality, well built, no squeaks and rattles after one year of ownership.

Why Not the 2009 Audi Q5?

Price or payments

One of the priciest vehicles in its class, (very) costly options

Insurance cost

High insurance premiums due to high price

Ride smoothness

Suspension is on the firm side. Great feel and response on smooth roads and gravel, but less comfortable on imperfect urban roads, where you have to ride slowly and do not want to "feel the road" so much.

Discounts & incentives

New model, high demand, long wait, so no significant discounts
