All the Audi fans out there, put 19 April 2008 bold in your diaries. This is when news and info will start rolling off from the Audi Q5 microsite, if you have registered first, to all those interested in the new Q5. Be on a list of those who are first to know about Q5 developments and possible test drives. According to the site, Q5 aims to convince you, rather than persuade you. It is efficient rather than forgoing pleasure, sporty without being unreasonable. The car has been described unofficially by one of our VW sources as "a poser, the Tiguan is the real deal". ( WCF )
Audi Q5, conceptualized, spied and rendered, is the new kid on the small luxury SUV block, taking the fight to BMW X3 territory. Later we expect Mercedes-Benz to in the fun with its GLK. Meantime, Q5 is the one to watch with its range of petrol/ gasoline engines and turbo diesels. A hybrid may be in the cards as well. Quattro is a done deal. Engines will be shared with Tiguan, meaning 1.4 TSI, 2.0TDI, 3.0TDI and so on.
