Distinctly Evolved, Refreshingly Familiar: Meet the New 2018 Audi Q5

The familiarity of the 2018 Audi Q5 is key for a crossover that’s the bestselling model in the brand’s portfolio. But where the looks haven’t been dramatically altered, the distinctive changes beneath the skin add up. Now, the Q5 checks the boxes for utility, performance, safety, and tech better than ever—and one-ups practically every competitor along the way.

No other competing crossover has leather upholstery, smartphone integration, a backup camera, all-wheel drive, and two safety suites as standard fair, but the Q5 does. It also blends sporty, firm suspension with a comfortable plushness that soaks up bumps. The power source of the Q5 is also magical. While its 252-hp engine may seem familiar, the Quattro with ultra system—which drives the front wheels predominantly, until the rear ones are needed—is new, offering legendary grip while offering 22/27/25 EPA-estimated gas mileage for city, highway, and combined. Somehow, it’s faster than the outgoing model’s optional V6. We call that wizardry—the kind you can benefit from.

Additional features on the new Q5 include Audi Connect, Virtual Cockpit, adaptive damping suspension, and driver assistance features. To find out which ones represent the best value for your needs and tastes, schedule an appointment with our Audi dealership in Union City, GA as it’s convenient.
