New Audi Q5 Quotes

Performance

The 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine delivers an impressive pace but the flagship petrol engine is the SQ5 Quattro is powered by a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine which will deliver 349bhp and 470Nm of torque.

The 2.0-litre petrol TFSI completes the 0-60mph sprint in 7.1 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph. Most impressive across the range, however, is the diesel SQ5 running on a 3.0-litre engine that develops 650Nm torque and sprints 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds, 0.2 of a second faster than the petrol version.

Comparably, the Q5’s rival the Land Rover Freelander, only has a top speed of 112mph making it less performance orientated. The Q5’s tight body control and accurate steering make it an excellent car for test driving.

Running Costs

Although the entry price is high, the Q5’s running costs are relatively low across the board. The entry-level 2.0-litre TDI S Tronic fuel consumption is 47.1mpg with Co2 emissions at 159g/km. Even the 3.0-litre TDI will manage 44.1mpg and 169g/km and alongside Audi’s fixed-price servicing deals the price tags don’t seem so hefty at £36,170 and £40,380 respectively.

Comparing rivals, the Volvo XC60 has an entry price of around £35,306 but at its cheapest to run it will cost more on Co2 emissions as they are set at 184g/km. The Q5 SUV remains a rarity on the roads, meaning chances of resale are high, particularly in diesel engines with the 2.0-litre TDI in SE trim leading the way.

Equipment

The entry level SE models will come as standard with 18-inch alloy wheels and a collapsible spare wheel, bluetooth interfacing, Milano leather upholstery.

Going for the S line model will include 19-inch alloy wheels and sports suspension as a no charge option. The S line interior includes embossed front Sports seats in Fine Nappa leather, sill plates and aluminium loading strip for the boot. Pick up a brochure for comprehensive details on the added features for all model specifications including the S line Plus.
