2009 Audi Q5

The basics: 3.2-liter V-6 with 270 horsepower; six-speed automatic; all-wheel drive standard

Price: $37,200

Fuel economy: 18/23 mpg

Rating: 8.4 out of 10

The Audi Q5 is new for 2009, and scores highly for its suave looks and its spacious interior. Editors liked its appealing style, inside and out; the quality feel of cabin and controls; its ample V-6 power; and its standard all-wheel-drive.

On the flip side, the Q5's Drive Select system feels gimmicky when one setting for ride quality would be fine. Steering is too heavy in all modes of Drive Select, and with that $2950 option and others, the Audi Q5 becomes a pricey addition to the class, with a $50,000 sticker possible.

Our Bottom Line? The 2009 Audi Q5 sports the sleek lines of a sweet German sedan, a date-worthy cabin, and good but gimmicky, hefty handling.
