The Beat got a recent look at the Audi Q5 crossover. This luxury small SUV offers dynamic performance, cool styling and plenty of practicality. It is the younger sibling to the Q7 SUV, which is a large luxury ride.
The Q5 comes with a 3.2-liter V-6 direct-injection engine, Quattro all-wheel drive and six-speed Tiptronic transmission.
The Q5 is the first Audi offering Generation 3 MMI interface system and navigation with real time Sirius traffic information.
It has best in class fuel economy ratings of 18 mpg city, according to EPA.
It also tops its class when it comes to towing capacity, at 4,400 pounds.
But most importantly, it drives like a winner, which is pretty much true of anything Audi puts on the road these days.
We'll have more on this fine ride later. But for now...
