but I love audi's current designs. Shopping for a small suv for my fiance currently, and my original choices were X1 or X3, and perhaps check out the Acura RDX, and Audi q5. After seeing more of each, I think hands down the q5 gets my vote, by far the prettiest of the group.
Up until the X1 came along it would also have been the best handling one too but it does take the prize for that. Though the X1 has an awful ride quality, I don't know what BMW are playing at, they insist on promoting handling at the expense of ride and frankly the person that has already decided on an SUV is really looking for a sportscar, just something that rides well, handling OK and is practical.
On their current SUVs they have really lost the plot.
