2014 Audi Q5 TDI



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.


 The stereo screen was very sleek.
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!


*Disclaimer, I received an Audi Q5  for a weekend test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle.

That's really nice.The stereo controls down by the shifter is really dangerous since you'd have to look down to change a station. Other than that I like it :)


Maryann D. said...

I do love the classy look of this attractive car. It is well made and Audi makes terrific cars.

What a beautiful vehicle! I didn't realize that the Audi seated 5 people. As a new family of 5, this is a vehicle that I would definitely consider once my kids are little bit older and out of car seats.

The technology available in cars today is unbelievable. A car with its own wifi hot spot?


Rachel Holt said...

Nice! Since reading this car I've been noticing it more on the road. So sporty!


courtney erickson said...

Ooh,this looks fun to drive! I love the stereo and there is so much space!


Pam Halligan said...

I love this Audi crossover. My favorite feature is the panoramic sunroof. It's so roomy - perfect for a family.


Sue Hull said...

I really love the sunroof.I like that it fits so many people.Cool car :)


Sue Hull said...

The more times I come back to comment the more I'd love to own one of these.Not that I can afford one, but I can dream. Lol!


Remus said...

way out of my price range, but a beautiful car. The heated seats would have been nice to have this winter :)


Rachel said...

Neat! I'm intrigued by the hotspot! We'll probably be looking for an suv for our next vehicle, though.


Melissa Marinho said...

I love Audi. They are one of the best auto makers out there. They are so reliable and SAFE. This vehicle has all the bells and whistles you could ask for in todays media connected world. I looks amazing. Very family friendly since it has all that space! Audi is one of the car brands I am looking into when I purchase my next vehicle for sure!


Asha Evins said...

Oh the luxury! I like that it looks really spacious.


Dorothy Teel said...

What a beautiful car, this Audi is, I like that it has seat memory for different drivers, I like that it has hotspot for computers and I would love to get one some day, but since retired, I will just drive myLOL car and be happy.


diamondgirl said...

Ooh,this looks fun to drive


Katy said...

I'm in love with the Audi SUVs. I'm actually looking at the smaller one. I love how fast they are and how luxurious the interior is!


Linda Madden said...

What a nice looking car. I could definitely picture myself driving one of these beauties.


Leela R. said...

Call me a crunchy Californian, but I'm never going to get a diesel. I know they are "clean" now, but with all that after treatment technology they are horribly expensive and complicated vehicles.


Jessica Menster said...

Great looking car and lots of amenities!


Kimberly said...

Daaaang, that's a sweet car. Too bad it's way out of my price range!


Kimberly B. said...

wow it looks awesome! I love how spacious the back seat looks.. it would fit my three kids perfectly!


gorda361 said...

dawn keenan said...

Awesome car. My sister has an Audi, and I was doing some research and the resale value is really good too!


Buddy Garrett said...

I love the warranties.


Brutus Duffy said...

This audi has a lot of features I want in a vehicle, and I love the design.

What a lovely car and I do know Audi's are well made and reliable cars.

Abigail said...

I think my kids would flip over the panoramic sun roof!


Tiffany Schmidt said...

This is a gorgeous car. Although I know diesel is cleaner, I just know I wouldn't get one. Force of habits I guess.


tregan28 said...

Wow! I love the panoramic sunroof. I want one like that!


momo said...

What a great looking and sounding car. Would like to take it down the highway for a little road trip!


MidgeLidge said...

If I had the money I would definitely buy this. I love the look of it, and it's pretty roomy to hold all the stuff I need for work.


Elena said...

I would love to get this car


Sandra VanHoey said...

I had never even heard of this vehicle before but it is real cute and seems pretty roomy. I do like the sunroof


Lynne said...

The trunk space is so much roomier than I expected. I have to say though, I now it is a lovely vehicle, but probably out of my price range. If I win the lottery though........ : )


BethElderton said...

What a dream car! All the luxury and size of a great car---but with tons of room.


Janet W. said...

What a sporty vehicle with lots of great features! I love how spacious it really is!

Maryann D. said...

LauraJJ said...

Oh what a nice looking car! I cant believe how much room is inside! Very roomy! I love that is has really good control in rain, Snow or Gravel!


Lisa Brown said...

i love the look of audi's. great sunfoof


Kelly Tupick said...

Love it. I love how the front end looks. It's really sharp and it looks so roomy.


Julie Wood said...

I love the Sunroof and the push start on this car! It also has a roomy back seat and has tons of room for me to put all of my stuff. It uses diesel gas which would get me used to remembering. Otherwise it is a very nice car for traveling!


Mama Blamer said...

Wow that is very spacious looking. I love that it has a sun/moon roof. I'm not a big fan of of the high tech in it though. I prefer simple tech in my car don't need a push start engine. still a very nice car though.


susan1215 said...

I really love the sunroof. I have never seen a sunroof so big. I love how spacious this car is too.


kathy pease said...

What a roomy vehicle id love to cruise in this. I would definitely consider this when buying a new vehicle :)


Colleen Maurina said...

What a beautiful car! I like that it averages 27 mpg and has lots of storage room.

carissa joslyn said...

I LOVE how big it gets with the seats down & everything!
That's one problem I seem to always run into is that if I need to go get something & it doesn't fit in the car, then we're screwed and have to pay someone to go pick it up for us.


reina tamayo said...

I really love the sunroof. This is nice !


Buddy Garrett said...

I wish I could afford one.


Ashley Perez said...

I love Audi! :)


Birdie Bee said...

Nice car. Audi is a good brand of vehicle and withstands the test of time. The technology in the new vehicles today are out of this world.


Yvonne Woodstock said...

Love the wi fi feature and the all the storage room especially. I wish it was a 7 passenger instead of only 5 though because even though our 5 kids are young adults on their own, we still make sure we have a vehicle that can take all of us places because we like to get together and go fun places or out to eat or even on road trips together so need those extra passenger seats for that reason. But other than that it looks like a very nice vehicle. Thanks for sharing. Love all the pics, I am a very visual person so I like reviews with lots of pics. : )

Marti Tabora said...

This is a really great car. I would love to have one. So many nice features.


freddie said...

I love how large the trunk is but I wouldn't own a diesel car. I just don't like them. Other than that, the car sounds really nice.


tashamwilkerson said...

Love Audi! Just wish I could afford one!


Robyn said...

I had an Audi in college, it wasn't brand new but it was the nicest car I ever drove, I hope to someday own another (newer) Audi


Katie said...

looks like a luxury car, love the good gas mileage.

DAVID+VICTORIA said...

Beautiful car!!


Beth R said...

I love how roomy the backseat of this car it! I love that!


Leela R. said...

The Audi connect feature with access to google earth sounds really convenient.


Sue Hull said...

I like that it has good gas mileage.The only thing I don't like about diesel is the car makes a lot of noise.


Keara B. said...

Wow, what a gorgeous car... wish it was in my price range! We take a lot of long car rides and this one looks really comfy for the whole family. Plus, the huge moon roof is amazing! If I ever win the lottery, I'll be looking at one of these. :)


1froglegs said...

The only down side I see is that in my area diesel is way more expensive.


Heather! said...

Woah...that sunroof! I will only buy cars with sunroofs, but that panoramic sunroof is a whole 'nuther level!


Kelly Tupick said...

Looks like a sharp car. I would be proud to drive that around my town.


Julie Wood said...

I really like this Audi because it is so roomy and it would be great to travel longs distances in. I wish it had a remote to start too, and this is a good car to drive in snowy weather. I would have to get used to driving this car with diesel gas. I would not want to put regular gas in it! But, I like this car!


Zephyr Hill Blog said...

My husband and I have been researching cars lately and Audi is our top pick. They look great and the gas mileage is amazing!!

Kadie said...

We are not in the market for a new car (finally paid off ours!) but this would be an awesome option if we were. Compact enough to not feel like you are driving a bus but with plenty of room!


lil_lady_dz said...

Love the Audi Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot! how cool!


Lynn Becker said...

Wow, so many great features! Looks like it has a big trunk space and I love the WiFi hotspot, cool feature!

This car is so very cool in design. I love that it can connect to Wifi.


Terrie Swazzo said...

WOW!! That is one nice looking vehicle!!


Christy Richmond Hinkemeyer said...

WOW! I already LOVE Audi's! BUT I never thought of one as having enough 'room' for my family! There are 4 of us and 3 little doggies and this looks like it has PLENTY of room for all three of my BIG boys (hubby and 2 teenagers)!!! I really like it! Test drive here we come!!! Thanks for all the info!!!


Julie Wood said...

What a beautiful car! I like that it has seat memory for different drivers, I like that it has hotspot for computers and I would love to get one some day! Really roomy car and a good car to drive in the Winter!


Sara said...

Great car


Brianna Sherman said...

I love how easy the seats fold down! Pretty nifty!


Stacy Calhoun said...

I love this car especially that it is diesel and has so much space. Being a family car, space is important and Audi's are a very reliable car


Ashley-Raye said...

Don't think I could ever afford a new Audi, but maybe a used one someday, LOL! It sure has a lot of great features and I love all the cargo space!


Jutta Pearce said...

That is a super fancy vehicle! I'm not a luxury person, but I've always said if I had the money for a "fancy" car, I would go with an Audi. Love the dials!


back2basics said...

Beautiful car!! I love the sunroof!!


ryan kiesh said...

Its a nice car but if you have more than 2 kids its too small.


Sew What said...

Nice car. Its too small for me though.


Michelle Tamasa said...

Wasn't expecting everything to find so flat! That's a lot of room!


sweepinmomma123 said...

Ok I will take it. Can you please deliver :)


Natalie said...

Looks nice but it would be to small for my growing family of 5, 6 in June!


shigdon said...

That is a nice car!


Linda Madden said...

Nice car !! What a great review .I especially liked the push button start. Looks like an elegant vehicle


Marcia Lee said...

I love the looks of the Audi Q5, both inside and out. The WiFi is appealing to me. The dash looks great and I love the all wheel drive.


Theresa M said...

Wow what is not to like about this car. Love the sunroof and the interior looks so soft. Must be nice.


Gala said...

Great car, my husband's dream


Brittany McDonld said...

This is a very attractive car. I really love all the room but it's still a sleek vehicle.


barnold barnes said...

That is a very nice looking car. I know I'd feel really safe in there with my 2 year old.


Robyn Donnelly said...

Audi's are great vehicles, I used to have an older model years ago.


Shan said...

I would love a new car! Audi's have great vehicles too. If and when we're in the market for a new one, we'll look into these


Charlene S. said...

The Audi Connect with Google Earth is a cool feature :)


dawn keenan said...

Lovely car. Heard they are so reliable too.


Sweetpetunia said...

Looks like a lot of room in the back from the angle you shot the picture. Is it really as big as it looks?


Lacey said...

Love the look of this car!


KateF said...

I like this car, but it's outside of my price range for now!


amanda whitley said...

this car has a lot of awesome features. love the trunk space and sunroof


Rangershnoah said...

Classy, but I don't think I would ever drive one outside of a courtesy test or weekend rental - too rich for my blood. I'm more of a double-cab truck gal anyway.


Ash said...

Love the look of the car!
