Exterior and Performance

Audi's engineers decided to use the traditional TFSI platform for the 2018 Q5's powertrain. When operating at more than 5,000 RPM, the turbocharged 2.0 L engine spits out 252 horsepower. This four-cylinder engine yields more than 270 lb-ft of torque at over 1,600 RPM. Another legendary mechanical installation is the Quattro AWD system with the Ultra technology that maximizes torque distribution among all four wheels. This versatile drivetrain is coupled with the S Tronic transmission system that uses dual clutches to generate seven gear speeds. The Audi Drive includes several modes that optimize the transmission, AWD and powertrain based on projected demands. For example, the Dynamic Mode automatically adjusts multiple parameters in response to weather and road conditions. As the name implies, the Efficiency Mode optimizes fuel economy. A power steering system with an electromechanical design contributes to agile handling. This Audi crossover SUV also has five-link components in the front and rear suspension systems.

Interior and Technology

Eight-way power front seats with four-way power lumbar supports offer a comfortable ride in the 2018 Audi Q5. These leather-appointed seats come with multi-stage heating for maximum comfort regardless of the weather. An automatic climate control system with three zones uniformly distributes warm or cool air in the front and rear rows. Some of the decorative elements inside this Audi crossover SUV include walnut wood inlays with a glossy finish. A panoramic sunroof with a power function adds another level of sophistication to the Q5 model. Covered in thick dual panes, the glass in the front windshield offers excellent insulation against outside noise.

Unlike a traditional infotainment system, the 2018 Audi Q5's MMI display stands freely above the dashboard. You can manage this high-end multimedia platform by using a touch pad that recognizes handwriting and other gestures. An electronic rotary dial provides another way to browse the menu that appears on the 8.3-inch screen. GPS navigation with colored 2-D maps and 3-D graphics is included in this signature infotainment console. You can tune into live traffic updates that are powered by INRIX XD technology. Replacing a conventional analog instrument cluster, the Q5's Audi Virtual Cockpit includes a 12.3-inch digital display with navigation and many other features, such as Google Maps and Street View. Two slots also allow you to insert SDXC cards that contain important data. Wireless Bluetooth and HomeLink are some other high-tech amenities in this Audi. A 19-speaker sound system by Bang & Olufsen produces booming acoustics from SiriusXM and HD Radio.

Safety

The Audi Pre Sense City helps you carefully navigate urban areas in the 2018 Q5. When you hit the highway, the basic version of the Pre Sense technology reduces the risk of a crash. If another car approaches your blind spots, the Audi Side Assist with Pre Sense Rear will take the appropriate measures. As soon as the Q5 rolls in reverse, the Rear Cross Traffic Assist looks for any cars that might be moving in. Additional alerts might be issued by the Vehicle Exit Assist, which detects any approaching pedestrians or bicyclists. The head curtain air bags in this Audi come with the signature Sideguard technology that mitigates facial and neck injuries during a crash.
