The Audi Q5 will come fitted with Audi’s quattro ultra four-wheel-drive system that promises to offer better fuel economy than the current car. Under normal driving conditions power is sent to just the front wheels but, if the onboard computer detects a wheel is slipping or if the road surface ahead changes dramatically, a secondary clutch engages to send drive to the rear axle, too.
The new Q5 will be offered with air suspension that will waft you to and from work as comfortably as possible while also handling the lumps and bumps of occasional off-roading with ease.
The headlight cluster features daytime running lights and LED technology first used on Audi’s racing cars. Their extra luminosity lights up more of the road than a traditional headlight and reduces the blinding effect of oncoming drivers by deactivating parts of the beam as they approach.
Inside, buyers will get interior elements from the A4 and Q7 meaning new Q5 owners will have little to complain about with excellent build quality and great perceived quality of materials. Back outside, sweeping indicators will give the model an unmistakeable presence when viewed from behind.
A wide range of engines already shared across Audi’s range will be offered. Most noteworthy is a hybrid predicted to feature a 2.0-litre petrol engine coupled to two electric motors. Four and six-cylinder diesel and petrol engines will be offered with both four-wheel drive and front-wheel drive, while a range-topping RS model will arrive with around 500hp later on.
Advanced LED headlights can shut down parts of their beam to avoid dazzling other drivers
Contributing to efficiency gains alongside the revised drivetrains is the estimated 100kg diet. New construction methods and the use of the latest Audi MLB platform have helped reduce the new Q5’s kerb weight.
The new Q5 will go up against the Mercedes GLE and BMW X3 when it arrives it in 2017.
Audi Q5 latest news
The new Audi Q5 will sport updated modern styling and a host of new technology when it goes on sale in late 2016.
This new car will be built using the same MLB chassis as both Audi’s own A4 and the larger Q7 SUV. This new platform will help the updated Q5 weigh up to 100kg less than the outgoing version.
The new Audi Q5 will look noticeably sharper than the current car.
To help it compete with the likes of the stylish Mercedes GLC, the new Q5 will boast a completely redesigned body. Numerous features will be inspired by the recently refreshed Q7 including a thick chrome grille surround, aggressive air intakes and a pair of angular headlights featuring LED technology.
The new Q5’s interior will look significantly more modern than the outgoing car’s, shown here…
Audi will release a plug-in hybrid Q5 e-tron model following the standard car’s launch, too. This model will probably make use of a series of powerful electric motors to offer both improved acceleration and better fuel economy.
The new car’s cabin should boast a host of equipment upgrades. Entry-level models will reportedly be offered with a seven-inch display and a rotary dial controller while top-spec versions will boast a larger 8.3-inch display and Audi’s impressive Virtual Cockpit display system.
Read on for more information on the upcoming Q5 including details of a high-performance RS Q5 version and its efficient e-tron cousin.
Audi Q5 2017 price, specs and release date
The new Audi Q5 has been spotted undertaking final testing wearing a light disguise that can’t hide the car’s striking resemblance to our renders. The new SUV has a tough job on its hands as it goes after rivals such as the BMW X3, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Lexus NX.
Audi RS Q5
The second-generation Audi Q5 is predicted to be the first to get an RS model in 2017. The RS Q5 is expected to use the same 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine found in the upcoming RS4 and RS5 – both due later in 2016. The thirsty non-turbo 4.2-litre V8 used in those variants will be dropped.
Expect the RS Q5 to get styling modifications similar to the RS Q3 (left)
The dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox and quattro four-wheel-drive system should also be shared here and, with power claimed to exceed 450hp, the 0-62mph time is expected to be comfortably less than five seconds. In comparison, the current flagship SQ5 model punches its way from 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds thanks to a 340hp, 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine.
The next Q5 is expected to be 20 per cent lighter over the previous generation and, like other RS variants, will come with its own bespoke suspension settings along with larger brakes to reign in the extra performance.
The RS Q5 is expected to use the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 from the upcoming RS4
The RS Q5 will be dressed up with its own unique bodykit, featuring bumpers with a set of large air intakes. The front signature black grille should also feature along with a set of flared wheel arches sitting closely above a unique set of alloy wheels. Large exhausts should neatly finish off the rear-end looks while a signature paint colour might also be available.
To our eyes, the new model also looks slightly bigger. That would make sense as it is set to use the same MLB EVO platform that’s underpins both the Q7 and new A4. The A4 offers 24mm more headroom in the front seats and boosts rear legroom by 23mm. We can expect similar increases in the Q5.
Use of high-strength steels means the latest A4 is also up to 110kg lighter than the outgoing model, so we would hazard a guess that there’ll be a similar weight reduction in the new Q5.
Aerodynamics were a big focus for Audi when it was styling the 2015 A4 and they’re set to play a big part in the shape of the new Q5. Sharp lines that allow air to pass over the car more smoothly make the A4 the most aerodynamic model in its class and Audi will be aiming for the same target with the Q5. That could boost fuel economy by around 20 per cent, but also lower interior wind noise. Something that was done to great effect in the new A4, which Audi claims is as quiet inside as its flagship A8 luxury saloon.
New Audi Q5 2017 latest news
The new Q5 will borrow much of the technology from the latest A4 and there will be a plug-in e-tron hybrid as well as a high-performance RS Q5 coming later in 2017.
Audi Q5 2017 styling The the front end of the new Q5 is dominated by Audi’s 3D-effect hexagonal grille first seen on the new Q7. We also expect the car to have more pronounced lower air intakes to compliment it’s sporty image.
In profile, the new car has a sleeker roof-line, new LED brake lights and a redesigned rear bumper with two exhaust pipes to make the back end sportier looking. The new Q5 seems more rugged thanks to its large wheelarches, which are visible even under the camouflage of Audi’s test cars.
High-tech Matrix headlights are almost certain to appear on the new model (they’ve already been confirmed for the latest A4), but they will be an optional extra rather than part of the standard equipment list.
Audi Q5 2017 interior
Inside, expect another class-leading interior from Audi. There will be a choice between regular analogue dials and the company’s high-tech virtual cockpit. Buyers will also choose between two infotainment systems – base Q5s get a seven-inch screen and a rotary control, while top-of-the-range models add a touchpad, can access Google earth and have a larger 8.3-inch display.
For improved safety, Audi is working closely with driver assistance system specialist Mobile Eye, to provide the Q5 with the latest in 3D camera technology in order to improve a variety of driver aids such as the automatic emergency braking and the adaptive cruise control.
An increase in wheelbase, the space between the front and rear wheels, will boost interior space – Audi says that the new Q5 will have more leg and shoulder room than the outgoing model, while the current Q5’s 540 litre-capacity is also set to increase.
Audi Q5 2017 specs
We don’t expect any surprises when it comes to the engine line-up, so expect more fuel efficient and refined versions of the current four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. That said a new V6 petrol engine, co-developed by Porsche, is also said to be in the making.
As in the Q3, expect more basic petrol and diesel models to be offered with the option of two-wheel drive to make them cheaper to buy and run. Meanwhile, the current performance model – the SQ5 will get a moderate power increase from 313 to around 330hp. Audi is also planning an even faster RS Q5 that will probably use the 500hp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol that’s earmarked for the new RS5.
The Q5’s suspension system will be borrowed from the latest A4, complete with adjustable dampers offering various driving modes to set the car up for comfort or sporty driving. The option to specify air suspension would allow drivers to raise the car for off-roading, while a self-levelling function will make it ideal for towing.
Three gearboxes are expected to be offered depending on engine – a six-speed manual, a seven-speed S Tronic DSG automatic and an eight-speed conventional auto.
Audi Q5 2017 e-tron hybrid
The e-tron hybrid that is rumoured to join the line-up later in the model’s life will borrow its technology from the 370hp Q7 e-tron that has impressive fuel economy of 166mpg. It will probably use a 2.0-litre petrol engine coupled to two electric motors – one in the gearbox and one that turns the rear wheels. It’ll be free to tax and should also be exempt from paying the London Congestion Charge. An all-electric range of about 30-35 miles should be possible.
New Audi Q5 2017 Model has lots of space front and rear and with the Audi Q5 stylish good looks,UK Car Broker will no doubt be selling this popular car. The high-quality Audi Q5 SUV is one of the finest models in its class. Occupying the middle ground between an estate car and a fully-fledged off-roader, this is an SUV which handles like a hatchback with impressive body control and plenty of grip. It also has the added benefit of holding its resale value.
In the entry level SE trim, standard cabin features include climate control, leather seats, digital radio and rear parking sensors.
Petrol-powered engines include the 178 or 222hp. The diesel line-up includes a 148bhp 2.0-litre or the faster 187hp and a couple of 3.0-litre options. With two turbochargers and 312hhp, the SQ5 model is a very fast car indeed.
The Q5 is clearly the German manufacturer’s response to the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the BMW X3.
The Audi Q5 is a mid-sized premium SUV that offers superb interior build quality. Its main rivals are the BMW X3, Mercedes GLC and the Volvo XC60.
As with any other Audi, the Q5’s interior is very high quality. It is also surprisingly spacious, there is plenty of room for passengers and the boot is bigger than in most rivals.
Despite being a high riding SUV, the Q5 is very capable on the road. The relatively stiff suspension minimises body roll, but never becomes uncomfortable.
The engine line-up has quite a few choices, but we recommended two – if you want low running costs then go for the 2.0-litre diesel and if you want to surprise Porsche Boxters from the lights go for the 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel in the SQ5.
The base SE model is well equipped with automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control, rear parking sensor and three-zone climate control, meaning not only separate temperature controls for the driver and passenger, but also for the rear seats as well.

If there’s one thing that everybody within the motoring industry knows, it’s that Audi interiors are perhaps the finest you’ll find in any mainstream car. There’s nothing too flashy or spectacular about it – it’s just s well-built, easy-to-use and stylish cabin that’s worth the premium you pay for it.
Audi Q5 boot space
The Q5 is also a very efficient user of its size; at 540 litres with the back seats up and 1,560 litres of boot space with them down (that’s over 100 more than the XC60), families should have little trouble packing for a holiday, and the weekly shop will be a breeze. Audi also offers a sliding rear bench, to let you choose between boot space and rear seat room.
Audi Q5 passenger space
The boot size is not the only impressive thing about the Q5’s practicality. There is room for four adults to lounge in comfort (five if they are really thin) and a pair of optional DVD players mounted to the back of the front seats can be specified to provide entertainment on longer journeys.
Plenty of high-quality materials and a sleek, stylish design
The handling of the Audi Q5 gets generally positive reviews. Despite the engine being ahead of the front axle – typically leading to a front-heavy feeling – the Q5 still feels relatively nimble for its size, and with precise steering, people should find no problem with telling it where to go. You’ll be able to feel lumps and bumps in the road because the Q5 has a slightly firm ride, but it rarely becomes uncomfortable.
Topping the pile is the SQ5, introduced in early 2013. Wider tyres, plus stiffened and lowered suspension (and a mighty diesel engine) give it huge cross-country pace, but reviews say its suspension is one of the stiffest setups they have tested.
The Q5 turns with remarkably little body roll and changes direction without protestation

The SQ5 often feels far quicker than the RS5, which has Audi’s 4.2-litre petrol V8
The Audi Q5 is rated as highly for occupant safety as you’d expect a modern, high-up luxury crossover to score. It attains a full five stars in Euro NCAP’s crash testing program.
Due to that high bonnet though, things aren’t so great for pedestrians. You might think that doesn’t matter but bear in mind that the Q5 is the sort of vehicle frequently seen on the school run, where the risk of small children running into the road is greater.
The Q5 does come well-equipped for safety though – it has all the usual kit you’d expect, in addition to Hill Descent Assist. Few Q5 owners will go off-road, but it could prove useful on snowy hills.
There's a selection of three-, four-, or five-year warranties to give you further peace of mind
Bar the unique SQ5 models, trim levels in the Q5 range follow Audi’s familiar formula starting with the basic SE, hitting the middle ground with sporty looking S line and topping out with the S line Plus. Only S line Plus models come with sat-nav as standard, but most other essentials are present.
Audi Q5 SE
Entry level SE trim gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, DAB radio, automatic headlights and wipers, plus leather-trimmed seats. The double glazed windscreen should do a good job of cutting out wind noise, but it’s a pity that Audi has chosen to only fit rear parking sensors, given that the Q5’s size makes it tricky to park.
Audi Q5 S line
S line trim is a styling pack in all but name and gets you kit such as larger 19-inch alloy wheels, a revised front grille, redesigned bumpers and, on the inside, sports seats and polished metal trim. The only technical changes are the inclusion of powerful xenon headlights and the option to have lowered suspension, although the latter is better avoided according to reviewers.
Audi Q5 S line Plus
Opting for the Q5 S line Plus sees the standard infotainment screen grow from 6.5 to 7.0-inches to capitalise on the fact that it’s also hooked up to a sat nav screen. Other additions include front parking sensors, an electrically operated tailgate and 20-inch alloy wheels.
That leaves the SQ5 that gets its own unique style of 20-inch alloys, a body kit and a sports exhaust that gives it a distinctive sound for a diesel. The SQ5’s bone-shaking ride comes as a result of its suspension that’s lowered by 30mm. Unlike in the S line model, there’s no more comfortable option.
The Q5 is another solid effort from Audi, both literally and figuratively. It has all the hallmarks of the traditional Audi product: Handsome design, a beautifully-furnished interior and a strong range of engines. It also drives well and offers plenty of practical solutions.
It’s no longer one of the more economical choices in the class though and despite the healthy boot, the Q5’s sporty silhouette means you’ll not be shifting wardrobes in it. With those limitations in mind though, the Q5 is easy to recommend.
