Overall:

We starting researching vehicles that do well in the snow. The Q5 was highly recommended. I’ve never owned an Audi, just BMW’s. I absolutely love the Q5! Luxurious cabin and all the bells and whistles. Handles great! Super fun to drive.

The car was quick and comfortable we were primarily interested in front passenger seat to have same features as driver seat. We drive long distances and passengers seat neads same comfort as driver. We took for a test drive and car under acceleration was noiser than I liked for a luxury vechile.

2018 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD Review
JR says:
The Audi Q5 combines sporty looks and handling with a refined interior and enough cargo space for most people. It is also quite capable off-road. There are a ton of tech options but the Premium Plus gets you most of the goodies. You will want to add the Navigation and the Bang & Olufsen Stereo with its 750w amp and 19 speakers is awesome and worth ever penny of the $950 charge. The virtual dashboard with its 12 wide screen is really cool and you can view your Navigation right in front of you on that screen.

Fantastic car with cutting edge electronics. Handling and power are in sync. 20 inch wheels are beautiful but a little noisy at highway speeds...road noise from rear of vehicle. Bang and Olufson upgrade is worth it.
