These Audi siblings represent their respective segments well. Both have all-wheel-drive and six-speed automatic transmissions, though the Q5 has a 3.2-liter, 270-hp V6 while the A4 Avant has a turbocharged 2.0-liter, 211-hp four-cylinder — the only available configurations for these particular models. Our testers were loaded to the roof rails with upscale features. The Q5 also had “Audi Drive Select,” which allows the driver to select one of four modes for suspension firmness, steering assist and transmission shift programming. The Avant test vehicle, meanwhile, had the Sport package, which includes 18-inch wheels, high-performance tires, a sport suspension, sport seats and a three-spoke sport steering wheel. Suffice it to say that these cars were very well equipped.
