It may seem like an unlikely combination but cars actually speak about our sense of style. The new Audi Q5 is no exception. Not only does a car reflect what you feel about yourself, it is also a visual clue for others to tell what kind of person you are. For example if you choose red colors then a fiery and bold fashion sense may not be off the cards.
Looking at the Clues of Advertising
Remember that there is a method to the madness when car manufacturers choose beautiful women to advertise their products. It is not just about sex appeal but also the ability to project a certain type of sophistication and refinement which clothes (or fashion in general) can achieve. Thus the person with the new sleek coupe is likely to be wearing an equally sharp suit from Armani.
Visual and Subliminal Signals
It is sometimes intriguing to consider what people would do if they had unlimited budgets. Would they choose their cars and attire to suit their mood at any given moment in time? So far the billionaires have shown us that they accessorize their toys with incredible fashion pieces. An oligarch in haute couture is also like to be driving a super car.
The Unique Case of a Crossover Car
The Audi Q5 has special significance in this season because it seems to be the crossover vehicle of choice. Its bold design reflects the new conceptualization of fashion as being eclectic and individualized. We are no longer bound by the old rules of conformity but must bake a bold statement.
An Interior to Die For
Can you imagine wearing snickers and a drab oversized college shirt to sit in the plush surroundings of the Audi Q5 interior? I thought not…this is the perfect illustration of why there is a marriage between fashion and vehicle design. On the other hand your chic evening dress will be perfectly in tune with the butter-smooth aerodynamics of this car.
What about the Performance?
Of course the car aficionados will want to know what is in the engine and how fast it goes. It is however arguable that all that is part of the mixture of fashion and vehicle specifications. These are the motor-heads who want to create their niche of cars; a trend that is reflected in their rebellious use of leather and denim.
One for the Pedantic Obsessives
Ultimately this is a $40,900 car that is able to do 24 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway. It can generate anywhere between 220 and 272 horsepower. There are versions for 2014 and 2015 depending on your tastes but the principles remain the same.
Final Fashion Statement
If you buy this vehicle then you are in all probability very practical in your fashion choices. At the same time you have an eye out for quality. You will be interested in the source materials and their durability. One can use the same argument for selecting a car or a fashion piece. The gap may not be as wide as we once thought.
