Now comes all the knitty gritty details of the SUV in a full press kit along with a newly released video from the studio showing all the fine details.
Audi's answer to the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLK has been pulled out of the hat, the Audi Q5 was first revealed to us back in April before making its world debut at the Beijing Auto Show. Now comes all the knitty gritty details of the SUV in a full press kit along with a newly released video from the studio showing all the fine details.
The Q5 is claimed to be the sportiest SUV in its segment – although BMW are quick to point out that even though it is priced like a premium segment vehicle, doesn't automatically mean it belongs in this segment. The Audi drive select control system and seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission looks to throw out this theory.
In the engine bay, Audi offers a choice of three engines for its launch starting with the new re-engineering 2.0-liter TFSI producing 211hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Diesel options include the 170hp 2.0-liter TDI and the range topping 3.0-liter V6 TDI unit pumping out 240hp. The engine range will no doubt be extended in the coming years.
