Special features for 2015
With the 2.0 TFSI engine and 8-speed automatic, the 2015 Audi Q5 performs similarly to its V6-equipped big brother while being much more fuel-efficient. The standard Q5 has an EPA highway rating of 27 mpg. The Q5 has the longest wheelbase in its class and that gives it an especially smooth, settled ride. With either 3.0L V6, the Q5 has an excellent towing capacity as well. The Q5's rear-biased quattro all-wheel drive system brings more driving enjoyment than is typical for enthusiasts and those who might rather be driving a sport sedan, while the interior has just as much versatility and flexibility as other utility vehicles in this class. Add to the mix a 2.0L hybrid -- or even the potent SQ5 -- and the appeal of the Audi Q5 is hard to ignore.
Where the Q5 lacks in speed (not really), the SQ5 adds a decent 80-plus more horsepower. A supercharged V6 engine houses 354 horses under the hood, enough for galloping you off the line like a good old fashioned Texas cavalcade. The chrome trimmed quad tailpipes are sure to garner some looks as you whiz by, and all the while you are in a crossover, not a compact sedan, coupe or sports car. You’ll have the option to choose from two expensive trim levels in this car, Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels, with rather nominal differences being offered; considering that the car already comes stacked with features that most cars never will offer. The standard package offers 20” wheels and sports-tuned brakes, with a factory lowered suspension, LED running lights, folding mirrors with auto-dimming and a sunroof. The power liftgate may come in handy, but is not the deal-maker. For the price, you’ll get plenty of speed and room for five passengers. Wagon and van lovers pay heed: this crossover means serious business, but will cost you for such fineries, indeed.
