Top Reasons to Consider the 2018 Audi Q5

The 2018 Audi Q5 has been completely redesigned from bumper to bumper. It delivers more of what people expect from the Audi brand while adding quality and value to the already well-loved Q5 reputation.

Drivers in West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and areas nearby should consider the all-new 2018 Audi Q5 worth a strong look for the following five reasons. They can see how well these reasons check out, too, when they schedule a Q5 test drive at Audi West Palm Beach.

Five-Star Safety Rating

The first thing to know about the 2018 Audi Q5 is that it doesn’t skimp on safety. It earned a perfect five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association’s (NHTSA) comprehensive New Car Assessment Program. This rigorous test subjects new models to all manners of crash scenarios, and the Q5’s overall structural integrity and sound engineering principles proved that Audi cares about the safety of its occupants above all else.

Adding to these incredible passive safety features is a wide range of some of the most advanced active safety features on the market. Audi’s pre sense basic technology, for instance, can sense an impending collision and automatically activate safety belt pretensioners and begin closing the moonroof and side windows.

Audi’s vehicle exit assist senses when vehicles are approaching from behind and to the side, alerting you when it’s not yet safe to open the doors or exit the vehicle.

Automated emergency braking comes standard on all Q5s as well.

Audi Quattro All-Wheel Drive

Every Q5 comes outfitted with Audi’s legendary Quattro all-wheel drive system. The Q5 version includes Quattro Ultra, which keeps the rear wheel driveshaft disengaged during normal conditions to improve fuel economy. Any time the vehicle senses the need for extra traction, it engages rear wheels as needed. This technology improves the Q5’s performance while adding to its capabilities to help you tackle a wide variety of road and weather conditions.

Advanced Technology Only Audi Can Offer

Audi always stays at the edge of vehicle technology, and the all-new Q5 proves this dedication. Advanced technology includes the available Audi virtual cockpit, which allows drivers to customize their 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster to suit their needs. They can receive vehicle information, read data from the infotainment system, or even convert the display to stunning Google Maps or Google Earth visuals.

An incredibly intuitive smartphone-style infotainment system is augmented by Audi’s patented MMI all-in-touch touchpad control system. An available head-up display can also project key driver information like current speed and navigation onto the windshield, ensuring that they never have to take their eyes off the road.

Refined-yet-Spirited Performance

A powerful yet relatively fuel-efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the Q5, giving it a robust 252 horsepower and a tested 0-60 time of 5.8 seconds (with traction control deactivated). The engine comes mated to a sophisticated seven-speed automatic transmission.

Audi delicately tuned the Q5 to offer maximum comfort and drivability without sacrificing road feel. As a result, the Q5 eases through turns and changes in speed with minimal body movement while avoiding the “floaty” feeling that some crossovers and SUVs exhibit.

Luxury Car Comfort with SUV Capabilities

The Q5 doesn’t skimp on luxury. The 2018 Audi Q5 come with standard leather seating, a 10-speaker sound system, voice controls, Apple CarPlay, Google Android, an eight-way power-adjustable front row, a rearview backup camera, and more. The seats are roomy and the cabin is well-appointed with quality trims and materials.

All this comfort comes alongside a 26.8-cubic-foot cargo area, which can expand to 60.4 cubic feet by folding down the second row seats.

Q5 owners can therefore enjoy the outstanding luxury reputation of Audi’s sports sedans and coupes in a flexible, capable package that’s ready to go just about anywhere.
