2018 Audi Q 5 Review

Overview
Go where you want to go. Bring what you want to bring. And have as much fun as you can. Featuring the precision of German engineering and over eight inches of ground clearance everything’s possible in an Audi Q5 and SQ. Choose from three models: Premium Premium Plus and Prestige. An advanced suspension balances performance and comfort so even rutted dirt roads on the Baja Peninsula feel like the smoothest lanes on your favorite Interstate. Or maybe it’s the eight-way power-adjustable leather seats that make every drive feel so good. Speaking of seats fold down the 40/20/40-split rear seat and over 60 cubic feet of stuff can enjoy the ride too whether it’s boxes of valuable antiques a very large dog or something in between. And since we’re well into the 21st Century every Q5 and SQ5 is loaded with technology. From Audi’s exclusive MMI infotainment system with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the Audi PreSense family of safety features you’ll stay connected and protected. Choose from a variety of colors and options and create a Q5 that’s all yours. The Audi Q5 and SQ. They’re everything you need.
Technology
Every Audi Q5 and SQ5 is loaded with technology. Just think of it as built-in intuition. Whether you use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto Audi’s Multi Media Interface infotainment system is ready for your smartphone. Use the control knob the touchpad or just hit the voice-recognition button on the steering wheel for navigation communication music and more. The available Audi Virtual Cockpit replaces the Q5’s standard gauge cluster with a 12.3-inch customizable digital display. View things like Google Earth the song you’re listening to and of course your Q5’s gauges.
Safety
Every Audi Q5 and SQ5 is loaded with safety features. Six airbags come standard and every chassis is built to absorb crash energy—while retaining rigidity. In other words it’ll crumple where you’re not and stay solid where you are. The Audi PreSense family of active safety features adds technology to the mix. All Q5 and SQ5 models come with PreSense Basic and PreSense City which detects things in front of you and can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop. Side Assist with PreSense Rear is available for even more protection.
Performance
The Audi Q5 comes with a turbocharged two-liter inline four. Or if 252 horsepower isn’t enough go for the SQ5’s 354-horse turbo V-61. Quattro all-wheel drive with Ultra technology puts that power to the ground—without wasting any of it. And Quattro learns how you drive so it can predict what you’ll need next. Audi Drive Select lets you tailor your Q5’s performance. Want to go fast? Choose Dynamic mode. Feel like saving gas? Efficiency. Driving the Queen of England to tea? Comfort. It’s that simple.
