2016 Audi Q5 – Since its coming in 2008, the all-wheel-drive, five-passenger, four-door Q5 continues to be a smash sales success for Audi. For the first six months of 2015, almost one-third of the over 13,000 Audis sold in Canada has been Q5s. The second-generation Audi Q5 will arrive this year, but the popular SUV won’t be arriving from Ingolstadt, Germany. The vehicle will be manufactured in San Jose, Mexico, and that’s simply one of the changes for the 2016 Audi Q5.
2016 Audi Q5 Review
The most essential, though least visible, change is the switch to a lightweight MLB Evo platform. The Q5 is anticipated to lose approximately 220 pounds with its new platform, that may also raise efficiency and improve handling.
A subtle approach is taken by the 2016 Audi Q5 to SUV styling. Its design is simple yet attractive, both inside and outside. The Q5 is related to Audi’s Allroad wagon underneath, and the two are visual family too, sharing the gently curved cues common to all current Audis. The difference is that the Q5 is blunter and not somewhat shorter compared to the connected station wagon.
2016 Audi Q5 Interior
The cockpit of the Q5 derives its style from its dearth of drama, its dearth of sub-par materials, and an absence of cheapness that is flashy. It’s a universally satisfying, well-comprehensive performance that is not unusual to just about every Audi inside. Like many of its brand teammates, the Q5 has a fairly wide center console, clearly identifying the driver and front passenger spaces, cockpit-design. The dash is not that is claustrophobic or all that curvy —instead, it is forward and more upright, helping optimize a sense of space. A layered that is wonderful oak trimming is now an alternative, elevating bits of the dash with a furniture -like finish.
The inside will be more like the Audi TT model, as the outside, the new Audi Q5 2016 would be to be more like the Q7’s. The dash is clean and not naive looking, controls are efficiently and correctly arranged around the four-spoke steering wheel. Three-zone climate control in empowers different settings for the driver, front row passenger, and the back passengers. Touch screen display gives access to the Audi concert radio with ten speakers organized throughout the car. 4 G, Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation is only a little part of features that are accessible. Surrounding LED lighting sets the mood for those nighttime journeys.
