Covers come off the all-new Audi Q5

The all-new Audi Q5 SUV is making its world debut at the Paris Motor Show. 

Audi says the ground-up rework has focused on connectivity, driver assistance, aeroacoustics and driving dynamics – setting new standards in its segment.

“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 Q5 features a completely new design with a sculpturally flared Singleframe grille with a solid frame up front, dominating its aerodynamically flat front end.

Despite being up to 90kg lighter than its predecessor, the new design has resulted in increased interior headroom and rear kneeroom, as well as an extra 10 litres of luggage capacity.

It is available with Xenon headlights as standard and either LED or high-resolution Matrix LED with dynamic indicators as options. 18-inch alloy wheels are fitted as standard while the S line package gets larger 19-inch rims and wheels of up to 21 inches in diameter are available as options.

The new Audi Q5 is manufactured at a newly constructed plant in Mexico and is set to arrive at Audi Centres in the UK in the Spring of 2017.
