Published on by thepandacover

2012 Audi Q5 is called 2012 Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money. If you plan to buy a luxury compact SUV, this is a great choice. MSRP of 2012 Audi Q5 is between $35,600 and $43,000. It will never let you down. It is worth every penny because it offers a lot for the price: standard all-wheel drive, great fuel economy, outstanding performance and a lush cabin.

Test drivers and reviewers said that is really loved by parents because it will transport their family in style, but they may wonder if the Q5 can be both stylish and utilitarian. According to the automotive press, the Q5 should do a decent job. The rear seats fit three kids just fine, but three teenagers or college students may be squished. Reviewers' main gripe with the Q5 is its cargo space. Offering about 29 cubic feet, the space is average for the class, but the Q5's sliding rear seat may help families pack more efficiently or let teenagers stretch their legs.

At the same time, reviewers and test drivers are mainly impressed with the amount of power that's available in the base 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the 3.2-liter, six-cylinder upgrade and how fuel efficient these engines are. Basically, they're in love with the Q5, and only suggest the BMX X3 if you want a standard V6 engine at a comparable price.
