Audi Q5 S Line has been layered in Nappa leather and Alcantara for a sporty look and feel, added to a slightly stiffened suspension for a more rigid ride.

Barely weeks after Audi first showed the Q5 officially, the German marque has revealed an S Line version of the Q5. The car attracts a sportier demeanor through a number of exterior changes. Some of these are 19-inch wheels which if you didn’t know, would certainly put you off the idea of going off-road in the swashbuckling Audi SUV. An optional 20-inch alloy is available, put around 255mm of black rubber. A groovy grille with a matching mesh pattern of air vents around the fog lights accentuates the aggression of S Line.

Interior features layons of brushed aluminium with the three-spoke steering wheel featuring multi-function capability and wrapped in perforated leather. Typically S Line, the door sills show “S Line” whenever you open the doors. The seats are layered in Nappa or Alcantara trim with the S Line logo embroidered on the seat for that extra special touch.

Nothing gets done to the engines as these are purely for sporty looks and drivability. That means for now we get the two TDI engines 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre, as well as the petrol-engined 2.0-litre TFSI. These plants are good for 125kW, 350Nm and 176kW, 500Nm respectively, while the TFSI makes 155kW and 350Nm.
