There's really nothing to find fault with here in the Q5: A sleek, gently rounded exterior and fast-wagon roofline give way to an especially charming cabin design, with rich materials and top-notch detailing.

A resemblance to the larger Audi Q7 is evident, but the Q5 also looks like a Volkswagen Tiguan dressed up for a night on the town

Unmistakable with a big black nose and rounded shoulders, the Q5 is distinctive without being flashy.
Forbes.com



The 2011 Audi Q5 is smooth and softly sculpted on the outside, and stands out even in a class of handsome all-weather wagons. With the Q5, it's the height and stance that conveys its capability and, as with the Volvo XC60, it's going for subtle, carlike, and elegant, rather than tough, imposing and upright. From some angles in fact, the Q5's silhouette looks more like a slightly taller version of the A3 hatchback than it does a smaller sibling of the Q7 utility vehicle. Up close, the Q5's prominent, rounded nose and sedan-like tail lamps (with LED lighting) walk the best line between sport-ute size and German-wagon efficiency.

Inside, it's a well-executed driving environment, with the sort of stylish simplicity—trimmed with rich materials that add a luxury undertone—that Audi seems to do better than anyone else. There are a few too many small buttons, but Audi frames them in metallic trim, wood, and coordinated leathers and plastics to give the somewhat cluttered dash a unified look.

Conclusion

There's really nothing to find fault with here in the Q5: A sleek, gently rounded exterior and fast-wagon roofline give way to an especially charming cabin design, with rich materials and top-notch detailing.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
