2013 Audi Q5

The styling of the Audi Q5 look equally suitable for the city tarmac or for back-road gravel.

Here I am iced up to the keyboard, fingers stiff and slowly punching out the latest hot review of the beautiful Audi Q5 in winter’s chilly temperatures. It’s times like this that I like to think of travelling Australia’s coastline in the heat of summer.

Slip into an Audi Q5 seating arrangement, and you have entered a world of sophistication and comfort. Technological gadgetry is scattered tastefully throughout the Germanic interior. On a wintry day, like today, I love mentioning the fact that the sporty Q5 has an exceptionally good air-conditioning element that powers the heat through to all occupants sitting in premium leather seats in pleasurable toe-warming skill.

Communicating to your friends just how awesome the Audi Q5 interior actually is can be done from the best seats in the business. You can recline back into the voluptuously sensual seats and chat to your hearts content from the onboard phone. If you love to chin-wag, this optional extra will be on your list of “must haves”. Take a look at the optional Sat-Nav system on an Audi Q5, and you will be mesmerised with its ability to track your progress and guide you to your destination with simplicity. I reckon that in a car of this quality, you should go the whole hog and drop into the already very well equipped Q5 parcel all the extra goodies that will make your day totally complete, six months down the track or right now.

The high driving position an Audi Q5 offers is a superior safety advantage on today’s busy roads. Getting comfortable behind the wheel is as easy as saying “Boo”, and the electrically adjustable seats have what seems as being endless combinations of supple angles and support that make for a completely relaxable driving experience. All Q5s come with six quality airbags, Traction Control and Four Wheel Drive. What a combination of safety and strength!

Power delivery is breathtakingly responsive, and the 3.0 turbo-diesel variants plant you firmly back into your seat as the pedal is pressed firmly downwards to encourage the sporty beast onwards. Superbly smooth diesel technology means that both the 2.0 litre and 3.0 litre turbo-diesel engines are whisper quiet and very “tourqueative”. The 2.0 litre version can wisp the Q5 from a standstill to 100 “clicks” in under ten seconds, which is actually quite exceptional for a vehicle weighing in close to two tonnes. Urge the Audi Q5 TDI Quattro 3.0DT to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in a quick time, and a consistent 6.5 seconds will show up on your wrist watch.

For a very nice 4WD, capable of tackling the rough and the smooth, look no further than the leader of the pack. The Audi Q5 offers power, safety comfort and excellent handling. And you can slip into a new one of these for under $80k.
