Here at indiGO Auto Group – Desert European Motorcars Campus, we're fans of every model in the Audi lineup, so you can imagine our excitement when a new one comes out. The 2018 Audi Q5 has just arrived on our lot, and we can't wait to tell you all about this exciting new SUV.
Time to rethink your luxury SUV expectations
When Audi introduced the Q5 in 2009, it quickly made a name for itself in the compact crossover segment. The next-generation 2018 Q5, which had its U.S. debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, takes Audi’s bold statement even further. Restyled inside and out and equipped with a redeveloped version of Audi’s signature 2.0-liter TFSI®, the all-new Q5 has plenty to offer drivers looking to get the most out of their SUV.
Uncompromising performance and elevated drivability
The standard powertrain of the new Q5 is Audi’s 2.0-liter TFSI® four-cylinder engine and an all-new seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission. With 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, the Q5 makes the sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds—more than a second faster than the previous generation. Making it even better, the Q5 boasts a best-in-class EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 25 mpg (a full 3 mpg better than the outgoing Q5).*
The Q5 comes standard with the all-new quattro® all-wheel-drive system with ultra® technology that’s been optimized for performance and efficiency—and standard Audi drive select gives you the freedom to choose between five different driving modes to best fit your individual preferences.
Live—and drive—the good life with the smartest Q5 ever
The upcoming 2018 Q5 enhances and accelerates your driving enjoyment and peace of mind with a full suite of next-generation infotainment and driver assistance technologies. The available Audi virtual cockpit includes a 12.3-inch 60fps full-color display with NVIDIA® quad-core processing power, enhancing the infotainment and navigation experience. MMI® all-in touch® is also available for the first time in the Q5 model lineup and includes intuitive handwriting-recognition technology and swipe-and-pinch touchscreen functionality.
As far as entertainment is concerned, music-lovers will be pleased to learn the Q5 comes equipped with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes no matter where you roam.
Redesigned from the ground up with Audi's latest technology, the Q5 comes equipped with all-new safety features, not to mention better 0-60 mph performance and fuel economy than ever before.
