    CarExpert's Take

    James Wong
    Production Editor
    James Wong drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Excellent performance and economy balance
    • Undercuts rivals by tens of thousands of dollars
    • Sportback styling hasn't compromised practicality much
    Misses
    • The looks won't appeal to everyone – but isn't that the point?
    • Not much difference in presentation to a standard Q5 Sportback
    • Steering is a bit numb
