Working Vacation: the #audiq5 test drive. A thousand miles south of the border lies Cabo San Lucas. Visitors usually come for the resorts — but recently, Audi invited a handful of automotive journalists there to take the #audiq5 on a 205-mile test drive up the Carretera Transpeninsular. With everything from sandy plains to winding highways, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better proving ground for the Q5. #quattro with ultra technology handled off-road situations with ease. And on highways, the newly developed five-link suspension and electromechanical power steering system helped deliver control and sculpted power. With all said and done, the opinions were unanimous: the 2018 Q5 blew its test drive out of the water.
