A fairly complete relaunch of the 2019 Audi Q5 Suv: A frequent sales success in its segment, related to the mid-sized SUV to the middle of the road and the utility wall. The new Q5 is based on the new ‘ MLB ‘ A4 Platform for longitudinal engines and promises more comfort and better handling. There is an aluminium load, which helps to reduce the weight of the kerbweight of TFSI of 2.0 liters in about 90 kg. Awesome Stuff
Prices Starting at: $43.945
The interior is basically cut from the new A4: There’s nothing wrong with that, as Audi’s interiors are really neat places, and it features all the usual features: Audi Virtual Cockpit Optional with 12.3 inch screen, MMI control, one control Nice and intuitive. Design. It has capacity for five people, and there are 610 or 1.550 liters of space available for IKEA‘s best, depending on whether it bends the back bank or not.
There will be five engines available at the launch, four diesel engines and one gasoline, although that’s a white lie, since three of them are essentially the same 2.0-liter TDi with three different outputs from 150bhp, 163bhp and 190bhp. The other diesel is an adorable V6 mono-turbo with 286bhp and 457lb ft of torque, and the only gasoline is a TFSI of 2.0 liters with 252bhp that manages 154g/km, which is equivalent to 41.5 mpg. The final figures have not yet been confirmed, but all engines are expected to be cleaner and more efficient than the outgoing 2019 Audi Q5 Suv.
As for gearboxes, there is a six-speed manual transmission, a seven-speed automatic S-Tronic and an eight-speed Tiptronic, although the latter only comes with the 3.0-liter TDI. All get traction on the four-wheel quattro base of 150 bhp diesel (front-wheel drive only, with Quattro as the cost option).
The only cars we’ve sampled so far are the 3.0-liter TDI and 2.0-liter gasoline. And as much as we’re surprised to say, they both drive very well. The direction is accurate and surprisingly communicative and the march is firm but not hard. The braking is strong and progressive, the traction, thanks to its master of torque vector, is solid as iron, and if you wish, can make you hurry with the best of them without feeling especially committed.
Costs and Reliability
Audi sold absolute shedloads of Q5 in the latest iteration (the best global vendor in the segment with 1.6 million of units according to Audi), and there is no reason why this version does not do the same. As safe bets go, this is a solid rock.
