Overview of the {make_model}

Learn about the Audi Q5

Summary

The Audi Q5 has been a best-selling mid-sized SUV multiple times over during its lifespan, cutting an impressive figure with its aerodynamic design and alloy wheels. Drivers describe the Q5 as powerful and responsive, offering excellent acceleration and handling. If you want some extra oomph, diesel options are available. The downside to the vehicle’s size and power is not-so-great fuel economy, but many drivers feel the car more than makes up for this in strength and style. Adventurers, road-trippers, big families and anyone who likes power will feel at home behind the Q5’s wheel.

Safety

A range of high-tech safety features are available with the Audi Q5. These have become particularly pronounced during the car’s second generation, which covers models made in 2016 and later. These models offer:

  • Parking system with pedestrian detection for safer, easier parking
  • Cameras around the car so you can always note your surroundings
  • Adaptive cruise control to help you maintain speed and distance from vehicles in front and behind
  • Xenon LED headlights, which offer unsurpassed visibility in their class

Even older models are equipped with adequate safety gear. Its oldest 2009 model has front, front-side and rear airbags are standard, and a four-wheel anti-lock braking system comes in handy if you need to stop quickly and unexpectedly. The Q5’s solid chassis stands up to pressure too, keeping you safe inside.

Interior

The interior of the Q5 is a lavish affair, with multiple climate zones standard right from the very first models. Privacy glass with acoustic glazing gives an exclusive feel while blocking out road noise. You can find luxe leather seats with built-in heating available on many of the higher trims, and buttons on the leather-wrapped steering wheel let you control the car’s systems effortlessly. Keep in mind that all these optional extras can be expensive.

Technology

The Audi Q5 features an impressive suite of tech features. Models from 2010 come equipped with Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI) mounted on the dash, while 2016+ models sport a more up-to-date on-board infotainment centre, accessed through a full-colour touchscreen. Audi’s proprietary smartphone interface makes connecting your Apple or Android devices a breeze. Popular tech features in all models include:

  • Surround-sound speakers for an immersive audio experience
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • On-board navigation
  • Keyless access, so you can get in and out of the vehicle without fussing over your keys

Space

With five doors, a cavernous trunk and loads of leg and headroom, it’s clear that the Audi Q5 was made with spaciousness in mind. This makes the car a safe choice whether you’re planning to use it as your main family vehicle or for long trips with groups of adults.

Comfort

The Q5’s performance orientation makes it a joy to drive—dynamic suspension and powerful brakes mean a smooth and comfortable ride. Automatic transmission lets you relax a bit in the driver’s seat. The front sport seats offer four-way electric lumbar support too, so even long drives can be handled in comfort.
