As a brand, Audi is known for its understated, elegant exterior styling. The cat’s-eye headlights, tailored sheet metal and desirability of the Audi brand will have your teen begging for the keys of the 2012 Audi Q5. If you decide to hand them over, you can feel good that the Q5 has electronic stability and traction control standard, as well as anti-lock brakes and six airbags. The Q5 also gets four out of five stars for overall performance in federal government crash tests and is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick for its performance in their crash tests.
