A complete overhaul, including a new body on a new calf structure, as well as improvements in the chains of transmission, security and technology. These radical changes launch the second generation of the most popular vehicle of this German car manufacturer. When it was released for the 2009 model year, the 2018 Audi Q5 brings the premium compact crossover SUV market. He became Audi’s main seller virtually overnight as buyers crowded towards his convincing combination of passengers and cargo, a first-class driving dynamics and interior design that would be at home in a vehicle a lot. More expensive.
Exterior and Interior
Audi has also revised the dimensions of the 2018 Audi Q5; the new model now extends 4.66 meters long with 1.89 meters and has a height of 1.66 meters. In these dimensions, the model is a little longer and larger than the outgoing model. The wheelbase also increases from 20mm to 2.82m, which adds a bit more space for the rear passengers. The first novelty that draws attention at first glance is the new horizontal grid that replaces the grid of the outgoing model. As the outgoing model, the new 2018 Audi Q5 still has LED headlights. The headlights are also integrated with LED DRL. In addition, the Q5 also comes with fog lights at the front and rear. Always in the front, the vehicle has new heated windshield nozzles. On the sides, the vehicle is equipped with an aluminum rim on the edge of the windows, adjustable side mirrors and a heater with integrated turn signals and 19-inch wheels; The Q5 can also be ordered with 20-inch wheels. The rear has an improved electric rear door, LED taillights and new fog lights, as well as two flat-bottomed dual exhaust outlets with polished tips. The Q5 also comes with aluminum roof rails.
Slide inside, you will find a beautiful cabin that has been carefully designed to offer maximum comfort and luxury to the whole family. The cabin comfortably accommodates four passengers and always leaves a decent loading space. With the seats up, the model offers 21.5 cubic feet of folding rear bench. In addition, the model has an electric tailgate as standard. I understand that there will be an option to open the boot by moving the foot under the bumper. The map is dominated by an updated “floating” infotainment screen that is managed by the Audi MMI dial, which is placed between the front seats. Buyers can even opt for an 8.3-inch screen that adds a touch screen for writing gestures. This screen can also be split to allow the driver to focus on the road while passengers access other functions. After the Q4 got it, it was only that the 2018 Audi Q5 would also present it; I’m talking about the new Audi Virtual Cockpit, which has a group of 12.3-inch digital instruments. In addition to displaying digital instruments, the display also displays information about the vehicle’s navigation system, audio system and other systems. Thanks to the button on the steering wheel, you can change the screen to display its preference menu. As such, it is possible to have a 12.3-inch color map behind the wheel and you can always save the screen to show the usual large dials.
Yes, for engines, all traction systems and suspensions. The 2018 Audi Q5 3.0T is over, with its supercharged V2 of 272 horsepower. The 2017 Audi Q5 electric hybrid gas model is also abandoned. The engine of the 2018 Audi Q5 2.0T range is again a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but now with 252 horsepower and 273 pounds of torque, up to 32 and 15, respectively. Instead of an 8-speed automatic transmission, it is now combined with a 7-speed automatic dual clutch.
Release and Price
Audi has not yet released the EA. UU. Official prices for the 2018 Audi Q5 however, in Europe, I understand that the model will start around $ 50,592. Although it is a fairly high price, it is worth it to pay. The model will be delivered to dealer showrooms from April 2017, but the manufacturer will begin receiving orders from early 2017.
