Audi Q5 Performance

Pop up the hood of a 2018 Q5, and you'll find a potent 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® engine that kicks out 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. A dual-clutch 7-speed S tronic automatic transmission sends power to the wheels, working together with the engine to deliver a superfast 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 5.9 seconds.

Honing the Audi Q5's handling is an all-new lightweight suspension joined with quattro® all-wheel drive with Ultra technology control. Also available is an Audi drive select system. This comes with five driver-selectable modes that mold the Q5's performance to your specific driving style. The Q5 cuts around corners with confidence and control, delivering sharp driving dynamics and top-notch efficiency.  

Climb Inside Your Cockpit

Riding in the 2018 Audi Q5's roomy and refined cabin is like lounging in a living room on wheels. Whether you're headed to work or dropping the kids off at school, the 2018 Q5's luxurious accommodations ensure each passenger rides in comfort.

The Q5 sits up to five passengers. Its cabin is crafted with soft touch points and premium materials like leather upholstery. An available panoramic sunroof floods the cabin with fresh air and natural light, while 3-zone automatic climate control lets the driver, co-pilot, and rear passengers set their own temperature levels.

The Q5 provides several premium amenities, but it also comes with tons of cargo space, with up to 19.4 cubic feet of storage behind its second row. Its 40/20/40 rear seats fold down to reveal up to 60.4 cubic feet when you need it, providing tons of room for groceries, backpacks, coolers, and more.

Audi Q5 Technology Features

One of the Audi Q5's most innovative technology features is an available virtual cockpit, complete with a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster. Drivers can scroll through navigation and audio with its infotainment and classic modes, which means the information you need throughout your drive is just a glance away. It also comes with Google EarthTM or Google Street ViewTM options.

Every Q5 comes with a standard Audi smartphone interphase with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM integration. You can access your smartphone's favorite features using its touchscreen, voice command, or steering wheel-mounted controls, allowing you to stay connected without losing focus on driving.
