We currently have a 2015 Q5 quattro 2.0T with Premium Plus as a loaner car until our new A4 gets here. This is a replacement for the 2013 A3 TDI we sold back to Audi, so it seems really big to us. That being said, it has a good ride, comfortable sport seats, and is not bad handling for what it is. My wife and I both still prefer a sedan, as we don't need an SUV or all wheel drive. I've driven BMW X1 and X3 loaner cars before, but the Q5 seems nicer inside. Mileage hasn't been too bad - low 20's in city/suburban driving - but figure high 20's on the road.
Overall, not a bad package, but just not our cup of tea. On the other hand, I've not heard much good about the Q3, which on paper doesn't get any better mileage than the Q5. It's basically a tarted up Tiguan from what I've read and is badly in need of a refresh.
