Audi’s Q5 crossover competed with models like the Lexus RX, BMW X3, Acura RDX, Cadillac SRX and others, with an eye for selection, sportiness and style. A used Audi Q5 will offer up diesel or gasoline power, Quattro AWD, and signature Audi styling elements that helped the Q5 stand apart. With five seats and no shortage of selection via features, option packages, and upscale content, the Q5 attracted shoppers after efficient crossover performance, luxurious capability, and all-season driving confidence.
Feature content included heated leather, xenon lights, memory seating, navigation, a panoramic sunroof, Audi’s MMI central command console, a motorized liftgate, and plenty more. An electric parking brake, intelligent key, three-zone climate control and an instrument cluster mounted computer were all on board, and premium stereo systems could be specified.
Look for a 2-litre turbo four-cylinder gasoline engine, a gasoline 3.2 litre V6, a gasoline 3-litre supercharged V6, and a diesel-burning 3-litre turbo V6. Automatic transmissions packed up to 8 gears, and paddle-shifters were available. The Q5 “TFSI” gets the 2-litre engine, while 3.2 and 3.0T badges are worn by models with the 3.2 litre V6, or the supercharged 3-litre unit, respectively. The Q5 TDI was the diesel-powered model.
