The driving position
The responsive steering particularly at low speeds.
The build quality and ergonomics around the dash.
The effortless cruising performance of this 2.0l engine - I had a 140 bhp 2.0l tdi in my last B7 A4 avant and this is even better.
The sound quality of the Audi system sounds a bit better than my last two audis, but i haven't had the chance to get listening to music off my ipod as I am waiting on cables for the AMI.
Hill hold is fantastic - why on earth is it an option for manual cars?
I love the wheels soo easy to clean, and I don't think the 19" are too small.
Boot space is great as are the sliding rear seats - a must if you have kids.
The auto boot opener/closer - i'm so lazy
I don't like:
Too much plastic around the inside of the doors, although this makes it easier to wipe clean, it's bound to scuff easily - a little bit of leather around the armrests would have helped.
A lot of gear changing from 0 - 25mph, I really wish I could have afforded the S Tronic but the S line trim was too tempting and it does make a much nicer car imo.
Too many extras needed to make it a nice comfortable car e.g. 3 zone climate control, AMI, Bluetooth etc.
Not much else, I hate to think of it as an SUV, just a tougher and roomier Avant and worth every penny.
BTW these photos don't do it justice, the Q5 is a great looking car.
