Audi has done it again with their high-performance 2017 Q5 SUV. With seating for five passengers, standard MMI infotainment and a sunroof, this SUV is a reliable, fully-loaded traveler with luxury amenities. But depending on your trim, you can opt for two amazing engines: Audi’s 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine or a powerful 3.0L TFSI® V6.

What is the difference between each engine, and how do you choose which model is right for you?
