Rani's review on Audi Q5 30 TDI Design Edition
Year of Manufacture : 2010 | Driven no. of Kms. : NA
- Pros: Looks, performance, style
- Cons: space, economy, offroader qualities, complicated dash and controls
It carries a dashing personality with strong Audi persona. The lines are smooth & clearly scores over the sharp edges of X3. The rear could have been made a shade less staid. Interior is spartan but easy on the senses. The dash could have been designed better. The instrument panel is so small that it cannot display all information together- a complicated menu confounds it further. Some of the information are bereft of utility.The engine performs splendidly and generates feral thrust not expected from a 2 lt engine. The ride is very smooth and scores over X3 and CRV. Gear changes are very smooth and almost unnoticeable. A great performer overall but fails on economy. For a 2 liter engine consumption is high. The technicians at Audi garage warn you against taking the vehicle into water with depth submerging half tyre. This puts a big question mark on its offroader capability.Ride quality is excellent and floats over the pothole with elan. Handling is superb with high fidelity response to the commands.
