As a rule I don’t care much for mid-sized SUVs, but I think the award winning Audi Q5 is going to be the exception that proves the rule. Based on Audi’s MLB/MLP platform (see also A5 and A4), the Q5 offers a rare solution to its segment—an exterior design that is both in proportion and expertly styled. It is a much more successful solution than the clumsy BMW X3, and reports I’ve heard from the Q5 international dealer launch suggest the Q5 drives as well as it looks.
These images of the Q5 feature the S line exterior package. Here’s what Audi press blurb has to say:
The S line exterior package gives the Audi Q5 an even more dynamic presence in the form of a distinctive grill design, new bumpers, accentuated air inlets, a spoiler lip and a diffuser insert at the rear. All exterior add-on parts and the door trim strips are painted in the body color, and S line logos adorn the fenders and door sill strips. The cargo area trim strip is in gleaming stainless steel, and trims give the exhaust tailpipes of the four-cylinder versions a more prominent look.
