A luxury SUV like the Audi Q5 is a great way to get around Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton, NY. It has a bold style that blends classic luxury and modern design. So, what's this SUV capable of and what can it do for you?

To show you everything it has to offer, Audi Ithaca put together a collection of in-depth Audi Q5 reviews.

Audi Q5 Performance Specs

The Audi Q5 runs on a 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. You can use this power to bring some extra cargo and tow up to 4,400 pounds. That's enough to hitch a trailer or a couple recreational vehicles to your luxury SUV. This base engine also offers solid fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 23 city/28 highway MPG.[i]

If you'd like an SUV with even lower emissions, and some extra power, the Audi Q5 has you covered there too. The available plug-in hybrid powertrain pairs the same 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor and a 14.1-kilowatt battery. This trio combines for up to 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Both powertrains work with an exciting 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission that lets you drive manually without a clutch. They also offer all the traction and stability you'll need with standard quattro® all-wheel drive.

Audi Q5 Passenger & Cargo Room

While the interior of the Audi Q5 is unquestionably stylish, it's also comfortable and convenient. It gives everyone plenty of room to stretch out. There's even enough room for taller drivers with 39.6 inches of headroom up front and 40.9 inches of legroom.

The back seats also offer lots of room to relax. There's 39.3 inches of headroom and 38 inches of legroom. It's also designed to sit three people comfortably with 56.5 inches of rear shoulder room.

The Q5 can also carry lots of cargo. Behind the back seats, there's 25.8 cubic feet of space in the trunk. To make room for more, you can use the split folding 40/20/40 seatbacks to get up to 54.0 cubic feet of cargo room.

Audi Q5 Luxury

Both the interior and exterior feature premium luxury. When it rolls up or passes you by, you'll notice its bold, signature grille and rounded aerodynamic design right away. The four famous rings are surrounded by a chrome frame that sets the stage for the rest of your SUV.

The cabin has standard leather seats with options like perforated leather and Nappa leather with cross stitching. You'll have great shades to choose from like black, rock gray, Okapi brown, or Atlas Beige.

To complement your seats, you'll have a set of refined inlays running along the dashboard and doors. They stay traditional with wood tones like brown walnut and birch wood natural gray brown.

You'll find lots of ways to relax in this refined interior. Ventilated and power adjustable front seats are available, as well as ambient interior lighting. You can even make your SUV feel more open with a panoramic sunroof.

Audi Q5 Technology

To take your driving experience to the next level, the Audi Q5 has a 10.1-inch MMI® touch display on top of the dashboard. It comes with smartphone compatibility like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so you can stream music and make hands-free calls while you drive. Plus, with voice commands, you can use the whole system without taking your eyes off the road.

Meanwhile, the instrument cluster offers the Audi virtual cockpit. This 12.3-inch display is fully customizable and can even show you where you're headed with Google Earth™.

Audi Q5 Safety

The Audi Q5 can also keep you safe. It starts by helping you deal with tough driving conditions with quattro® all-wheel drive. Another way it helps prevent accidents is with intelligent safety technology. For example, Audi pre sense® city lets you know when there's an object in your path and can activate emergency braking for you.

Some of the other driver-assistance features include Audi adaptive cruise control, a Top view camera that gives you 360 degrees of visibility, and Park assist. Just find a spot that's large enough for your SUV and it'll park it for you.
