2018 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD Review
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.

2018 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Prestige AWD Review
says:
I test drove the SQ5 and really enjoyed the overall feel of the car. Very sporty, Dynamic handling was off the charts good with the Quattro setup. Sat lower to the road, so it felt more like I was sitting in a sedan. Interior trim was nice, but not up to the level of other cars in the same pricing category. I thought the cargo capacity was small compared to other crossovers in the same class.

"Seats just seemed to fit my body better. Visibility to the outside world seemed better as well. "
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Jaguar F-PACE 35t Prestige AWD better.
"I ended up buying a 2018 F-Pace Prestige 35T. Cargo space and maintenance won me over. Jaguar offers free service for 5 years or 60,000 miles. With Audi, you have the option to buy additional maintenance. "
