The new Audi Q5 compact SUV places efficiency front and centre.The new body design boasts a class-benchmark
drag coefficient of just 0,30, with the inclusion of the new A4 Allroad’s Quattro Ultra technology, which disengages
drive to the rear wheels to reduce mechanical drag, realising a 0,3 L/100 km saving on its own. Ultra technology
will be offered in four-cylinder models, while six-cylinder models will feature Quattro with a centre-locking diff as
standard and a sport diff as an option.
The Q5 borrows radar-assisted driver-assistance systems from the Q7, including collision-avoidance assist-helps steer the
car around an obstacle- turn assist -brakes the car during a slow turn if oncoming traffic
cuts across-and traffic-jam assist -semi-autonomous steering and braking.
A new five-link suspension setup, both front and rear, will strike a neat balance between
fleet-footedness and comfort. An optional adaptive air-suspension system will also be offered.
