Are you in the market for a nice Crossover that also offers the versatility of Diesel? The 2014 Audi Q5 might be right for you. Utility meets elegance with this gorgeous vehicle.
The 2014 Audi Q5 seats 5 passengers and has a very roomy trunk area making it the perfect family vehicle for any endeavor you accomplish.
The 2014 Audi Q5 TDI has some wonderful features that any family can appreciate. Not only is the vehicle absolutely beautiful and has a very appealing appearance. It also has plenty of advanced technologies such as the Audi Drive Connect and Audi Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Audi Connect with Google Earth provides weather, news, local search and a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 8 passenger devices. The Audi Drive Select lets you personalize the driving experience.
But it was a bit strange that the controls were down next to you near the gear shifter
Although diesel can be more expensive in the winter, the 2014 Audi Q5 averages 27mpg and so when diesel is cheaper in the summer it all evens out. Getting that MPG for a crossover is VERY good. It's hard to find that on a larger vehicle. The Audi Q5 gets 24/31 as its claim.
Unfortunately we only had this vehicle for a weekend so didn't have much time to really test it out.
But I still have a few favorite features.
The push start is always a favorite, it's a very easy way to start your vehicle.
I also loved the panoramic sunroof
It had a button to pull back the shade and then another button to open it. It was really easy to maneuver
I also really loved the control of this vehicle. It was probably the smoothest ride of any vehicle I've ever driven. It features what they call the Audi quattro. It is All Wheel Drive, backed by Electronic Stability Control with off road mode. So it helps you be able to better control based on the conditions. Rain, Snow or Gravel!
The back seat was very roomy and had a beautiful design as well.
Plenty of leg room
The trunk space was large enough on it's own and it had a spoiler that was connected to the trunk door itself
So it picked up out of the way when the hatch opened. A nice feature.
With the seats down and folded flat. Plenty of storage and traveling space
Although you can lower down the 2nd row seats from the 2nd row with a lever on the seats, there is also a button right in the trunk that makes it really easy. Just pull it and the corresponding seats folds down automatically.
It also had the saved seat settings which comes in handy when there's multiple drivers in the house.
The Audi Q5 has heated, 8 way power front seats with 4 way lumbar driver seat. A must in comfort.
Also has a 4 year, 50,000 mile warranty. And a 12 year limited warranty against corrosion.
I really wish the Audi Q5 came with remote start though. We've been having negative temperatures and that's a must.
The 2014 Audi Q5 that I test drove starts at $46,500 and this model came in at $55,445. Although a bit pricey, the features are amazing and worth it.
I would recommend the Audi to anyone!
