Audi Q5

Baby’ brother of Q7 has finally launched in the market and it intended to grab the market share. Audi have had a long assosiation with off roders the quattro system has created some of the most memorable sports cars in its history but for some years the Audi has tried to put his efforts in SUVs. The newest arrival to benefit the consumers is the Q5. As with the Q7, the car is delayed to the esteem 4x4 party main rival BMW’s X3 came up in the market five years ago. With prices from less than £30,000, the SUV sits above the A4 in the line-up, yet it shares a lot with the executive car. At the front is a big chrome-ringed grille and familiar lights (S line versions get LED daytime running lamps), while the A4 Avant-on-stilts shape mixes Q7-style tail-lights at the rear with chunky but neat proportions. Inside Q5 the people will feel like sitting in home.

Engine choices include a 208bhp 2.0-litre TFSI petrol unit and a 237bhp 3.0 TDI. But most Q5s will have the 168bhp 2.0 common-rail TDI diesel. This is smooth and torquey, with 350Nm from only 1,750rpm, and blends swift and refined progress with 42mpg economy.
