2018 Audi Q5 Overview

The new Q5 is not the style step of its predecessor. The lines are rather crunchy, tight, narrow. Sheet metal now looks more spun than a larger Q7 crossover. But this subtle evolution masked deeper changes beneath the metal. Q5 is now riding on top of the latest chassis based on the new A4 sedan. It’s longer, wider and taller than before, not much, but enough to open more space in the cabin for rear passengers and cargo loads. More importantly, the new chassis produces a much smoother ride than ever before, often handling complaints on previous models.
The standard four-cylinder turbocharged engine is ready for riding, and now offers more power. The famous Audi Quattro all-wheel-drive system also received a major overhaul in 2018 Audi Q5, now turned into a major front-wheel drive system that can involve the rear wheel less than half a second when attraction is required.

Ease of use

We do not have previous gene models to compare side by side, but the cabin feels very large, and more spacious than you expect when viewed from the outside, it is very easy for you in driving this car.

In and out

The new Q5 is ignored higher than its predecessor about (0.2 inches), and we can not say that extra height is visible when stepping in or out.

Fragility

Two inches wider and an inch longer than the previous model, and on a 0.5 inch longer wheelbase, the new Q5 gets some real estate in it. The rear seat passengers can enjoy the benefits, with leg room almost half an inch. Gear haulers get the rest of the profits: The cargo capacity increases almost 3 cubic feet from the previous model.

Utilities

Longer and wider dimensions mean it will provide a larger payload area. Capacity cargo jumped almost 3 cubic feet, now at 60.1 cubic feet with second row seats folded. Put the chairs upright, however the luggage / grocery room actually drops 0.4 cubic feet (to 28.7 cubic feet).

Space cargo

Larger dimensions make the cargo space more leverage, 60.1 cubic feet with the rear seat can be folded down. It comes with a small charge of luggage space when the rear seat is raised again, which is down 0.4 cubic feet. 40/20 / 40-split folding rear seats increase flexibility.
Child safety seat
The rear seat has three LATCH child seat mounting points.
