The second generation of the Audi Q5 recently hit showroom floors, and this all-new midsize luxury crossover is living up to the excitement it created when unveiled at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.

The 2018 Audi Q5: A Second Generation of Excellence

Redesigned Frame

The 2018 Q5’s unique steel and aluminum frame have helped shave close to 200 pounds off the weight of the previous model. Meanwhile the overall length is 1.3 inches longer, which makes for an extra .4 inches of rear legroom. With a lighter frame the Q5 achieves better fuel economy than ever before, with the city mileage increasing from 20 to 23 miles per gallon.

Improved Performance

The new Q5 is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder TFSI® engine with an output of 252 HP and 273 pound-feet of torque. It also comes equipped with Audi’s new quattro® all-wheel drive combined with ultra® technology. This system can proactively switch from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive when needed, so you’ll never be stuck without the proper power.

Polished Interior

The cabin of the Q5 creates a comfortable, distinguished atmosphere that will delight both driver and passengers. Leather seating for all passengers is standard, with the 40/20/40 split rear bench folding down for 60.4 cubic feet of cargo space.

The driver will enjoy a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters, while everyone else can experience three-zone automatic climate control and a standard 10-speaker Audi sound system.

Smart Safety

An array of safety features makes the Q5 a great pick for families. A backup camera is standard on all models, but that’s just the beginning. Audi pre sense® can intervene in the case of an impending collision, closing the windows and sunroof, pretensioning the seatbelts, and preparing the brakes for a quick response. Pre sense® city technology takes it a step further, initiating emergency braking if a vehicle or pedestrian is in danger of being hit.
