Pricey.  I don't see it coming to Canada at almost $74000.

Got to chalk to this up to just another Halo car for Audi impressive power in a small form factor that most in Canada simply can't see ponying up that kind of dough for this vehicle.

To me it's like going to a fancy restaurant and getting a small portion size, paying big bugs and leaving hungry !! Sure it was tasty but hey I'm still hungry.

+1.  I'm sure it'll be fast and look good, but that 55K euros will be close to $70K+ range when/if it gets to Canada.

I'd be more than happy with a S4...

Almost $80K for an A3 (VW Golf) with a bit of a lift kit?!?!?! Isnt the Golf R available in 4 doors?? Again, if you want one of these half breed CUV/Van things....the FX50......  ;D

I'll beat a certain Alberta redneck poster on this forum to the punch by saying I just don't get this form factor.   ???  At this price point there are a lot of seriously fast cars with a much lower COG than this thing but......it *is* different.  Is it a truck.  Nope.  Is it a car?  Nope.  What is it?  Something that a Tiguan owner would trade up to maybe?

I don't get this form factor  ???

Q5 is bigger than a Q3.  I already thought the Q5 was on the smaller end of the spectrum for a CUV.  The Q3 is just nuts.  Expensive nuts.   :hurl:

How is this better than an BMW x1 with M sport package, which cost much less?

Nice, but $74k, yikes. I'm sure it will find takers for exclusivity though.
