Audi unveils new second generation all-new Q5 at Paris Motor Show

The all new Audi Q5 model was unveiled today during the official Audi press conference at the Paris Motor Show.

“The first Audi Q5 was for many years the world's best-selling SUV in its class. It was no easy task to design its successor, but that is precisely why it is so very exciting,” says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management at AUDI AG. “With the new Q5 we are setting the bar a notch higher. Among the great innovations are the quattro drive system with ultra technology, highly efficient engines, the air suspension with damper control and a comprehensive line-up of infotainment and assistance systems.”

The new Audi Q5 SUV will be available in Ireland in early 2017 with a choice of 14 different exterior colours and five powerful and efficient engines: four TDI engines and one TFSI. Audi engineers have managed to add more power, while reducing fuel consumption. The 2.0 TDI engines have up to a 27hp increase in power with outputs of 150 hp, 163 hp and 190 hp, and are particularly efficient.

The Q5 brings Audi’s brand motto of Vorsprung durch Technik to life through it range of tech and connectivity options. Among the many options, the Audi virtual cockpit presents brilliant graphics on its high-resolution 12.3-inch screen. The driver can choose from two views – a classic view with large round instruments and a mode in which the navigation map or lists dominate. The newly developed optional head-up display projects key information onto the windshield.

Pricing will be announced later this year.
