2012 Audi Q5 | new car review

Posted on Apr 15, 2012 by

The is the younger brother of the immensely popular Q7. In true fashion, the styling of the Q5 closely resembles that of the Q7 and it is an all-rounder compact SUV. It offers decent space and good drivability in the city. It does have a bit of off-road capabilities but those are suited best to lose gravel and a few shallow ruts.

The 2012 Audi Q5 is available with two engine options. The base variant gets an inline-4 cylinder 2-litre turbocharged engine that produces 211bhp at 4300-6000rpm and 350Nm of torque at a very low 1500-4200rpm. The other option is the 3.2-litre FSI V6 that produces 270bhp at 6500rpm and 330Nm of torque at 3000-5000rpm. Both these variants get a 7-speed Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

The 2012 Audi Q5 has three optional exterior styling packages, the black styling package, the off-road styling package and the S line package. On the inside you can choose from seven different colour and equipment packages.

The 2012 Audi Q5 comes with cruise control and parking sensors as standard and adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring features are optional extras. Other optional feature include MMI navigation, TV reception, Bang & Olufsen audio system and temperature controlled drink holders.

Four front airbags come as standard and rear side airbags are an optional extra.
