2018 Audi Q5: Exterior Design

Quality craftsmanship and design is something Audi takes very seriously, and it's displayed in the 2018 Q5.

From the sharp angles of the available 3D-styled full LED headlights, to the crisp roof lines and the sleek standard hands-free powered tailgate, the Q5 is eye-catching in every sense of the word.

The available panoramic sunroof adds to the aesthetic, as it opens and tilts to provide fresh air and vibrant views of the outside world.

2018 Audi Q5: Performance

All 2018 Audi Q5 trim levels come standard with a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder TFSI® engine and dual-clutch seven-speed S tronic® automatic transmission.

This impressive standard powertrain option produces 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque that pushes the car using the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system Audi is known for. This engine packs a punch on the open roads and offers smooth acceleration around city streets.

It is also an incredibly fuel-efficient compact SUV, offering an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway.1  

2018 Audi Q5: Interior

Audi brings their tasteful aesthetic into the cabin, as you'll notice the driver-centric design and use of the finest materials.

From the standard leather-wrapped 8-way power front seats, you'll be able to access the standard 7-inch MMI® center infotainment display that is complete with a voice control system, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® capabilities.

These features can be engaged by simply asking the infotainment system to do so. Using the voice control feature, you can access all your phone's apps, music, and telephone services from the car's infotainment system. All these features help to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.      

2018 Audi Q5: Safety

The standard features continue into the realm of safety as Audi equips every 2018 Q5 with a few standard safety features to give you piece of mind on the road.

It comes standard with a Rearview Camera and the Audi pre sense® city package, which includes Forward Collision Warning and an Automated Front Emergency Brake. These advanced safety features use radar sensors to detect and alert you of oncoming objects or pedestrians in your path. If action isn't taken quickly enough, the Q5 can engage the emergency brake to prevent a collision or lessen the impact of one.
