Audi has a target to release it in Europe soon, but for North America they have to wait a little time more. This SUV will come out with all-new models to mark it as high-riding car.

Exterior

It is true that Audi only have to keep the fundamentals for this SUV. The outside configuration is unmistakable with some different changes to provide. It seems that there is a big impact from the larger Q7. 2018 Q5 is not too similar as the sibling, because it will be completed with new styling as well as the hybrid unit with the use of MLB Evo. This platform will also support the car to be lighter for about 264 lbs. so it has more proficient design than before. From the spy shots, we can see that it has more extensive front end with more forceful look. It will get overhauled design for that part to complete the more extensive grille that is joined with the redesigned headlights. The littler headlights are equipped with all LED MatrixBeam furnish. What make it a bit similar to Q7 is the shoulder lines and the wheel curves. Its three-dimensional taillight styling will remind you to the look of the new A4.

2018 Audi Q5 has typical Audi style when it comes to the interior design. It goes with a driving mode selector so you can change the dynamic settings. The infotainment systems are available such as display screen on the dashboard, electronic driving aids includes lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

The new platform will support the car to use more different engines, starting from the base with the use of turbocharged 2.0 liter to convey 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Likely, the general model will get turbocharged 2.0 liter diesel for 190 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. There is also supercharged 3.0 liter and V6 engine as well as a module half and half engine. 2018 Audi Q5 is expected to have TDI engine diesel that wouldn’t be available for the US market. Audi will use the most updated seven-speed S tronic double grip transmission. We suppose that there will be e-quattro and all-wheel drive system to offer.

In the beginning of 2016, they will start everything and we expect that it will come after 2017. We suggest that the retail price will be around $43,000 for the base of 2018 Audi Q5. The highest model should be at $58,000. It will be the strong rival for Volvo XC60, Acura RDX and other cars in its class.
