Simply coherent: controls and demonstrations
Operation of the new Audi SUV is intuitive and is marked by three great new facets. The optional Audi virtual cockpit presents brilliant graphics on its high-resolution 12.3-inch cover. The driver can choose from two views – a classic view with fat round instruments and a mode in which the navigation map or lists have under ones thumb. The also optional head-up display projects key information onto the windshield.
The MMI extreme in the center console acts as the main control element. In the top infotainment organized whole, the MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and an 8.3-inch pageant, a touchpad is integrated into the rotary pushbutton. It recognizes handwritten items as well as gestures familiar from consumer electronics such as zooming movements. If the new Q5 has an automatic transmission, it also has the larger MMI all-in-touch including haptic feedback.
The MMI go logic is based on the flat hierarchies used in today’s smartphones, and it proffers such features as intelligent free-text search. The new natural-language express control function also recognizes inputs from accustomed speech. Serving as an additional third operating level in the new Audi Q5 is the multifunction manage wheel plus. Audi can deliver a newly developed head-up ostentation as an option. It projects relevant information onto the windshield – counting from driver assistance systems – as symbols and numbers that can be sensed quickly.
Audi navigation: “Personal route assist”
The new Audi Q5, cognate with the Q7 and the A4, has a self-learning “personal route assist” function. After triggering this function, the navigation system learns the routes and targets that the customer regularly selects, and it associates this data to the parked position and time of day.
For as long as it is active, the system consequence learns from the customer’s behavior and uses this poop to suggest optimized route planning for the next trip – settle accounts while navigation is inactive. The navigation system incorporates the three most expected destinations into the calculation, taking into consideration both the newcomer time and current traffic levels. For instance, the system can make one think that the customer activate navigation to find out about concealed alternative routes. The driver decides whether or not to activate the banquet. He also has the option of deleting saved destinations. If the function is deactivated, the structure does not store the destinations and does not consider deleted stops or the routes driven.
Online via LTE: MMI navigation plus
MMI navigation with the addition of utilizes the Audi connect module to integrate a LTE module and a Wi-Fi hotspot – this throw offs passengers go online with up to eight mobile devices. Audi unite enables convenient roaming in Europe for many Audi fit services with its permanently installed SIM card – the Audi weld SIM with a flat data rate.

The free Audi MMI league app produces a close interconnection between the car and smartphone or a smartwatch and put forwards other services. They include remote checking of signal vehicle states, online media streaming and transmission of a slate from a smartphone to the MMI.
High-end option: the infotainment modules
The Audi phone box links smartphones to the vehicle’s antenna for optimal reception quality; it also fees smartphones inductively according to the Qi standard. The Bang & Olufsen Secure System with innovative 3D sound introduces the spatial dimension of level. The Audi tablet, which is also new, serves as a flexible Train Seat Entertainment device. The Audi smartphone interface also escorts Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the new Q5.
Driver benefit and safety systems
In its driver assistance systems, the new Audi Q5 also tops its separate with a broad range of high-tech options. In their literati interplay, the systems represent a next step towards piloted hustle. They are bundled into three packages – Tour, Town and Parking.
The predictive efficiency assistant helps the driver redeem fuel by specific information on the car’s surroundings. Adaptive cruise put down (ACC) including traffic jam assist can handle some of the steering under way in slow-moving traffic. Audi active lane assist conveys it easier to stay in lane. Distance warning alerts the driver when the disassociate to a vehicle drops below a safe distance.
Cross transportation assist rear, the exit warning system, collision avoidance serve and turn assist are other new features that perform excellently in following of safety. The same applies to the pre sense systems – Audi pre tail city is a standard feature which warns of pedestrians and conduits and may initiate automatic emergency braking within system limits. Parkland assist, the camera-based recognition of traffic signs and hill descent work for round out the features.
Powerful quintet: TDI and TFSI engines
The new Audi Q5 is runabout in Europe with five powerful and efficient engines: four TDI mechanisms and one TFSI. They have added up to 20 kW (27 hp) of power, with nourishment consumption however being significantly reduced. Particularly the 2.0 TDI mechanisms in the new Q5, with outputs of 110 kW (150 hp), 120 kW (163 hp) and 140 kW (190 hp), are praisefully efficient. The two-liter diesel is also a highly efficient machine in the version with 140 kW (190 hp).
The two top engines combine enough power with efficiency. The further developed 2.0 TFSI has an produce of 185 kW (252 hp), yet it only consumes 6.8 liters of gasoline per 100 km (34.6 US mpg), which equates to 154 grams CO2 per km(247.8 g/mi). The also intensively overhauled 3.0 TDI increases output to 210 kW (286 hp) with 620 Nm (457.3 lb ft) of torque.
Competent and efficient: drivetrain
The drivetrain of the mid-size SUV has been redeveloped from the soil up – this also applies to the six-speed manual transmission, seven-speed S tronic and eight-speed tiptronic (just with the 3.0 TDI). The automatic transmissions integrate a fuel-saving freewheel raison detre. The driver controls it by a selection lever or by shift paddles on the control wheel; in both cases, the control signals are transmitted electronically.
The new quattro drivetrain with ultra technology is guidon equipment for the 2.0 TDI with
120 kW (163 hp) and 140 kW (190 hp), and for the 2.0 TFSI with 185 kW (252 hp). Audi can proclaim it as an option for the entry-level diesel engine with 110 kW (150 hp). The quattro with ultra technology unceasingly disengages the rear-axle drive whenever it is not needed, and if necessary it can proactively re-engage it. The new concept increases efficiency without reducing traction or driving dynamics.
In both the front-wheel energy and quattro drive versions, torque vectoring gives wielding a refined touch. The intelligent software solution always launches a dynamic, precise and controllable driving experience. For the V6 diesel, Audi can cede an optional sport differential at the rear axle which distributes torque between the wheels as indispensable and thereby provides a maximum of driving dynamics – this is another new be involved in this model series and in the competitive field.
Resolving contradictions: the chassis
The new Audi Q5 deputes handling that combines very different strengths – it is chic while being extremely comfortable. Creating the basis for this are the newly developed five-link discontinuations and also the new electromechanical power steering system. Dynamic bad is available as an option; it varies its gear ratio according to the byway speed and steering angle.
Customers can choose from two breadth stages of springs and damping.
