The new Audi Q5 made its world debut, where do you think? At the Beijing Motor Show.
I’m sure Audi knows who they are going to fight with, in the compact crossover niche, because BMW already has the X3 live, Mercedes-Benz have just announced the GLK and Volvo seems pretty active, too. Their ace up the sleeve is the sportier (elegant) looks, or at least the Germans think so.
Beautiful headlights with bi-xenon lamps and LED daytime running lights, a large single-frame grille or those big wheels are extremely eye-catching when you take a look at the picture. I wouldn’t expect anything cheaper on the rear: taillights with LED technology or the aluminum wraparound tailgate.
The engine palette is also nice. Three choices that include two diesel versions and a petrol engine, all turbocharged:
- 2.0 TFSI that outputs 211 hp and 350 Nm torque.
It does o to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds and has a top speed of 222 km/h. Fuel consumption is 8.5L for 100 km.
- 2.0 TDI that outputs 170 hp and 350 Nm torque.
It does o to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds and has a top speed of 204 km/h. Fuel consumption is 6.7L for 100 km.
- 3.0 TDI V6 engine that outputs 240 hp and 500 Nm torque.
It does o to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 225 km/h. Fuel consumption is 7.7L for 100 km.
I really like what I see. Waiting for prices now !
