Great family vehicle and fuel efficient.

Reliable, comfort and luxury car, love the comfort, drive of the car, and the great features, awesome safety features, spacious all around, great family vehicle, the side assist feature and the backup camera are my most favorite features, the only upgrade i’d consider when I trade in is an entertainment package for my kids.

- Steph D

Very impressed with my Audi q5.

Audi’s are difficult to service because they’re foreign and I have had extreme trouble finding places to service it. However, I love the car itself. The different driving modes such as dynamic mode are very helpful since I live on twisty roads. The features the car has are very convenient.

- Jenna W

Great car overall with performance and safety.

Great performance. Smooth. Safety features like pre-collision warning and lane changing warning. Also has sensors to help you park. Driver friendly dashboard. Navigation system can be voice activated. Cell phone can be connected via carplay and Siri on iPhone can do what you ask on the phone.
