audi on monday unveiled the facelifted q5 that combines a sporty character with excellent everyday usability, and comes with a wide array of infotainment and assistance options.
its powerful two-litre four-cylinder diesel generates 204 ps and 400 nm of torque, which is matched with a seven-speed s tronic that sends the engine power to the quattro all-wheel drive.
behind the new control setup in the updated audi q5 is a new main unit – the third-generation modular infotainment platform (mib 3), which offers ten times the computing power of its predecessor, the mib 2.
its basis is a conventional dashboard with a centrally positioned driver information system. the top of the range is the audi virtual cockpit plus – a high-resolution 12.3-inch digital display with three different graphic layouts. the driver controls the displays via the multifunction steering wheel. a head-up display is also available as an option.
a wide assortment of personal settings – from frequently used navigation destinations to seating position to preferred air-conditioning levels – can be saved in six user profiles. the data is stored in the myaudi customer portal in the cloud, where it is available for each authorized user in any suitably equipped audi.
the updated q5 also comes with a comprehensive set of assistance systems. the audi pre sense city system comes as standard and helps avoid collisions with road users in front of the vehicle or mitigate their consequences.
the audi q5 will come to markets later this year.
