Audi Q5 Ride and Handling
The Audi Q5 provides the versatility of an SUV with the driving characteristics of a sport sedan. The fuel economy fails to impress, but the rest of the Q5 experience does not. The 2.0T’s acceleration is more than acceptable. You'll have more fun driving it than you will any other car in the class. The quattro AWD system adds enough off-road prowesses to satisfy all but the hardcore. Even with the regular tyres shod on the Q5, it handles dirt tracks with great aplomb. Steering feedback isn’t bad for the type of car, either. On the flipside, the rear seat is designed more for 2 rather than 3 adults.
