Everything you need to know about the new Audi Q5 SUV, including engine range, size and more

The all-new Audi Q5 is one of the newest additions to the Q family – and it is the best seller in the range. Featuring the iconic Q design touches of a bold grille, distinctive C-pillar and prominent wheelarches, the Q5 oozes class and sophistication.

Compared with the last Q5, the new car is bigger in nearly every direction, but thanks to clever use of advanced materials it’s actually up to 90kg lighter than before – that’s the same weight as three Dalmatians!

Together with reworked engines, the lightweight Q5 helps save fuel and improve performance. The car has a choice of a 2.0-litre TDI diesel with 190PS or a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol with 252PS.

It’s a theme that continues inside with an interior of exceptional design and quality. It’s packed with technology, too, and has class-leading acoustics to make sure the noisy bustle of the outside world is kept outside.

To prevent any stress inside the car, the Q5 features three-zone climate control so the driver can specify their own temperature, separate from the front and rear passengers.

At the very rear of the Q5, a powered tailgate makes access to the spacious boot easy, even when your hands are full. It reveals a massive 550-litre boot – more than enough for large families or anyone who needs to transport bulky sporting equipment such as golf clubs and bikes. Fold down the rear seats and load capacity grows to 1,550 litres.

Keeping your passengers and luggage safe is a suite of the latest technology. Optional adaptive cruise control maintains the Q5 at a set speed until it detects traffic. It then slows the car down to keep you at a safe distance.

And of course there’s the legendary quattro system. In its latest iteration it provides extra traction on-demand, using powerful computers to constantly monitor road conditions and driving style. If a loss of grip is detected, the quattro system instantly switches between front and four-wheel drive. It means the Q5 will maintain maximum traction in slippery conditions while maximising fuel economy.

Dynamic ability has been further improved with the adoption of new five-link suspension which can be tailored to your mood and driving style with Audi Drive Select. For even more ability on and off the beaten track, the Q5 can be specified with Adaptive air suspension to raise or lower the ride height.

All this technology ensures that the Q5 is intelligent, intuitive and dynamic – just like its owners.
