Unmistakably An Audi

There's no mistaking the stunning Q5's pedigree as it wears its Audi heritage proudly. From its massive grille bisected by vertical chrome fins and adorned with Audi's signature emblem to its unmistakable profile, the 2016 Q5 won't be mistaken for any other "run of the mill" SUV. Far from it. Wind-tunnel tested for optimal aerodynamic efficiency, the Q5's exterior sheetmetal flows effortlessly from the low sloping hood and gracefully arcing roofline to the handsome rear deck. According to TheCarConnection.com's Bengt Halvorson, the Q5's styling is "subtle, simple, yet handsome."

"The minor restyling the Q5 received in 2014 reshaped the grille and slimmed down the headlamps, while also adding LED tail lamps, but did nothing to upend the Q5's best features--its carlike curves and its closeness to the rest of the Audi A4/A5 lineup," Halvorson observes.

A Spaciously Inviting Luxury Interior

Like any Audi, the Q5's sumptuously appointed and spacious interior epitomizes the artful intersection of style, substance, and sporty attitude. The finest quality, top-grade leather enfolds you in luxuriant yet well-bolstered comfort. Every facet of the Q5's interior down to the last detail has been thoughtfully and carefully imagined. The library-quiet cabin merges form and function with a degree of elegance and sophistication that is true to the brand.

As TheCarConnection's Halvorson states, "The Q5's cockpit derives its style from its lack of drama, its lack of subpar materials, and an absence of flashy cheapness. It's a universally pleasing, well-detailed execution that's common to just about every Audi interior. Like many of its brand mates, the Q5 has a rather wide center console, clearly differentiating the driver and front passenger areas, cockpit-style. The dash itself isn't all that curvy or claustrophobic--rather, it's more upright and forward, helping maximize a sense of space. A beautiful layered oak trim is now an option, elevating bits of the dash with a furniture-like finish. Audi frames all this in metallic trim, wood, and coordinated leathers and plastics…"

Tech That's Yours To Command

Not only does the Q5's sports-minded interior create an oasis of spacious luxury, but it also allows you to command and control and array of the latest technological innovations. The available MMI® navigation system, for example, works uses Google Earth™ to display 3D satellite navigational imagery. The available Audi Connect® system provides a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that lets you connect up to eight devices. Full iPod® integration lets you manage your playlists directly through the audio system or via steering wheel-mounted controls.

The available and first-of-its-kind MMI® Touch touch-sensitive scroll wheel located in the center console controls an array of functions with fingertip simplicity. The scroll wheel works in concert with the large centrally positioned color display to control a variety of audio, entertainment, and connectivity functions. Connect to Facebook®, Twitter®, and other Internet-based services. Pump up your soundtrack with the available audiophile-quality Bang & Olufsen audio system.

Legendary Audi Performance & Handling

Of course, since the new 2016 Q5 SUV is every bit an Audi through and through, you would expect it to perform and handle to the highest standards that define the Audi brand. Starting with Audi's legendary Quattro® all-wheel drive system, the Q5 lets you conquer every bend in the road with confident assurance. Quattro seamlessly sends power to all four wheels to help increase handling performance in a variety of different road conditions.

The Q5's meticulously crafted 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter TFSI® engines offer exceptional smoothness and responsive performance. "The base Audi Q5 has an energetic, torquey power delivery that makes the most of its 220 horsepower, says Halvorson, "The Q5 isn't a lightweight; it weighs about 4,100 pounds in base trim. Still, even the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is pleasantly assertive. The turbocharger doesn't lag much, power comes on smoothly, and 0–60 mph runs of 7.0 seconds put this basic version well within luxury-car standards, as does a top speed of 130 mph."

"Above that drivetrain, Audi's supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 is the direction in which most luxury buyers will steer. It turns in 272 horsepower, and runs it through the same Quattro all-wheel-drive system and eight-speed automatic standard on all Q5 crossovers," adds Halvorson. "No matter which Q5 you choose, the paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic has closely spaced gears and responsive shifting. Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system plus eight inches of ground clearance make the Q5 a good pick for deep snow and steep driveways. The Q5 can also tow up to 4,400 pounds, depending on which engine is under the hood."

Regarding fuel economy, "The base Q5 offers the best compromise for both value and gas mileage. At 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, or 23 mpg combined, it's competitive in its class. We've seen about 24 mpg in a mix of spirited city and highway driving," says Halvorson.

Proven on the lightning-fast German Autobahn and the demanding curves of the legendary Nürburgring, Audis are driven to excite when it comes to pure driving pleasure. The 2016 Q5 continues this proud heritage with superlative driving dynamics. "Driven back to back against some other luxury crossovers without German heritage, the Audi Q5's dynamics come off as taut and carlike. Especially in the lightest-weight turbo four model, the Q5 excels in passing maneuvers and out of corners…" Halvorson states.

World-Class Safety Innovations

Audi also takes a global leadership role in automotive safety. The Q5 comes equipped with an arsenal of both active and passive safety features designed to protect occupants in the event of a crash, as well as prevent accidents from happening in the first place. The available Audi Side Assist uses radar sensors and visual warning that alert you of another car is in your blind spot. Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go maintains a set distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you and can even stop or accelerate your Q5 reacting to various traffic conditions. An available rearview camera assists you when backing up. When equipped with the available Driver Assistance package and produced after January 2015, the Q5 has earned the rating of Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).
