Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review
Fast (on all) four

Introduction, Exterior

When you think of an SUV, dynamic performance wouldn’t be high on your list of expectations considering the generally higher suspension and soft damping most often associated with these lumbering beasts.

Well, the Q5 is Audi’s counter argument to the idea of SUVs being poor performers in the handling department. 

Exterior

Externally, the medium-sized Audi remains much the same retaining much of the same lines of its larger Q7 sibling but in a slightly smaller package. The 2013 version looks similar the previous model but with slightly tweaked headlights.

The iconic Audi daytime running lights now encompass the entire headlamp and are more distinctive. Same goes for the tail lamps that get the LED treatment. Less obvious though is the new single frame radiator grille that now comes in gloss black. The shape has also been tweaked slightly for a hexagonal shape with the top edges made more angular.

Other areas of this subtle change are the minor bumper redesign that extends to the fog lamps and the reshaped air intakes.
