On November 17th I was able to do a Test drive for our Website with the Audi Q5 2.0TFSI S tronic. In December I will drive the Q5 with the 3.0 TDI Engine.
The inside is as you would expect, typically Audi (A4). This car is equipped with the Drive Select with shocks that could be adjusted. Of course I tried all the settings, and must confess, I'm impressed! You have really 3-cars-in-one! Ranging from comfort to dynamic for the sporty drive.
The Q5 has also 20" Rims whit 255/45 that look big and are IMHO the only ones that should be fitted because of the fantastic looks.
Also fitted, the MMI (3rd Generation) and it's a big improvement. Nice is the 3D-display when Navigating that's also to be switched into 'Night Vision' so it's not too brite at night.
The engine is very quiet. I speeded often a little without knowing. But no ticket! [;)]
The S tronic if fabulous! What a difference to my cars Tiptronic! Stopped at a traffic light, the car is really stopped, no movement at all [up]
Also on the car, the hilhold and electronic handbrake combined with automatic (hand)brake when you stop. Nice and good working function!
The driving experience is about the same as with the A4 Avant, so that's a compliment to the Audi engineers.
Getting in and out of the car is very easy to do. You don't 'step up or down'.

Thanks for the input and photographs. How is the front seating arrangement? Is it more like the A4 or the Q7 seating?

I didn't know the new gen MMI was going to be out so soon, and 2.0T with S-Tronic? That's starting to sound like a damn nice vehicle.

I prefer it more as my own Tiptronic.

I'm sure you will love the car and the way the engine with the 7-S tronic works!
