The new 2017 Audi Q5: Price, Specifications and Launch Date
It’s bigger, but lighter; it’s more powerful, but more fuel efficient. The all-new Audi Q5 sets new standards with its ride comfort, connectivity and handling characteristics, whilst taking top place in its segment for its driver assistance systems. More passenger space, more luggage space, superb aeroacoustics and a new five-link suspension system, all these attributes combine to make the all-new Audi Q5 even more desirable than its predecessor, the worldwide best-selling Audi SUV.
Reworked from the road to its roof, the all-new Audi Q5 is manufactured from high tensile strength steels and aluminium to bring about a weight reduction of up to 90kg, despite its increased size. Low wind noise, high levels of vibration comfort and the best interior acoustics in its class come as standard with the Q5’s excellent aerodynamics and low Cd of 0.3. At launch, the all-new Audi Q5 will be available with a 2.0 TDI 190PS engine. Other engines in the pipeline include a 2.0 TFSI, producing 252PS, and a 3.0 TDI with an output of 286PS and 620Nm of torque. For both the four-cylinder 2.0 engines, the famous Audi quattro all-wheel-drive system will come as standard with ultra technology to enable the automatic disengagement and re-engagement of the rear-axle drive, so it’s only active when needed, thus increasing efficiency. The Audi drive select comes with two additional settings, lift/offroad and allroad, to make the most of the Q5’s off-road capabilities.
