You can get a clearer picture by reading this car review, prepared for you by the folks at Audi Fort Worth. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Audi Q5 Media & Technology

The 2018 Q5 brings plenty of cutting-edge technology to the table-and best of all, much of it is standard. In the base Q5 trim, you'll find an intuitive MMI® multimedia system, complete with a 7-inch touchscreen (8.3-inch is available) for easy-to-see and -swipe graphics. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are par for the course, so you can send texts, make calls, and perform other useful functions from the infotainment touchscreen.

The standard 180-watt, 10-speaker sound system will add crisp and clear sounds to your daily drive, but you can upgrade to the available Bang & Olufsen® premium sound system for an exceptional audio experience. With 19 speakers, 755 watts of power, and the Bang & Olufsen® Dynamic Line Design speaker grilles, your morning music will have concert-level quality.

Audi Q5 Interior Dimensions  

The new Q5 is a 2-row premium SUV with seating for five people. Front-row passengers will find 41.7 inches of legroom, which is plenty of room to keep even the tallest riders comfortable. In the rear of the Audi SUV, 37.8 inches of legroom will be comfortable for most adults. On long rides, you can sit anywhere you like in the cabin and have plenty of space to spread out.

Seats come standardly cloaked in leather, and the front seats are 8-way power-adjustable for comfort you can customize. You can add optional 4-way power lumbar technology to give some more support to your lower back when you need it. Also, the available cooled front seats come in handy on those hot days in Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth.

Audi Q5 Engine Specs 

When it comes to performance specs, the 2018 Q5 offers brisk acceleration, no matter which engine you choose. You have two options: the base 2.0L TFSI® I-4, good for 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque; and, in the Audi SQ5 high-performance variant, a 3.0L TFSI® V6 with 354 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque on tap.Either way, you'll have plenty of acceleration to merge onto highways, pass slower moving vehicles, and handle steep mountain roads. With either engine, you'll get to experience Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, which automatically sends power to the wheel(s) with the most grip for top-notch traction.
