One strength of quattro:
recognising the right moment.

Ready for virtually any surface. And the challenges ahead, quattro all-wheel drive technology ensures that your Q5 remains efficient, dynamic, and safe without compromising traction.

quattro monitors the road conditions and switches effortlessly between two-wheel and all-wheel drive – giving you sure-footed performance on even the most demanding journey.

Attenuates almost everything. The optional adaptive air suspension adjusts the attenuation forces of each wheel to the driving situation. This depends on terrain, driving style and the selected Audi drive select mode. With various adjustable height levels, you can compensate for nearly any unevenness. The attenuation control permanently equalises weight.

For more comfortable loading, the body can be lowered by up to 55 mm using a button in the boot. With Audi drive select, the character of the vehicle can be modified to make it more efficient, more comfortable or more dynamic. But always completely individual.
No compromises are made when it comes to power. Nevertheless, it helps to save on fuel.
The Audi Q5 will initially be offered with three engines: two TDI and one TFSI. However, fuel consumption is considerably lower. In particular the 2.0 TDI engines in the new Q5, which feature 150 HP and 190 HP, are highly efficient.

Both top engines combine great power with efficiency. The enhanced 2.0 TFSI can deliver up to 252 HP of power but only requires 6.8 of petrol for 100 km – a CO₂ equivalent of 154 g/km. The revised 3.0 TDI delivers up to 354 HP of power and 620 Nm of torque.

The entire power-train of the Audi Q5 has been developed from scratch – the same applies for the six-speed manual transmission, the seven-speed S tronic, and the eight-speed tiptronic (only the 3.0 TDI). The automatic drive features a fuel-saving freewheeling function. They are controlled with a selector lever or shift paddles on the steering wheel. In both cases, the signal transmission is electronic.
