2018 Audi Q5: The Powerful Luxury SUV


There are several things to like about the release of 2018 Audi Q5. There will be some upgrades and significant improvement on the interior cabin, the handle, and the driving performance. The Q line from Audi has always been known as the push and comfy ride but expect a greater improvement on the comfort with this new model.  Although the design may be considered conservative and not having too many options for the power arrangement, you can still expect all the good stuff from this powerful ride.

What to Expect

The overall design of the Q5 is a powerful and yet luxurious SUV that won’t disappoint anyone. With I4 turbocharged engine with 2.0 liter capacity (delivering 252 hp of power), the ride is smooth and comfy with the all wheel driving system and the dual clutch seven speed transmission. This 2018 Q5 is able to reach 60 mph within 5.9 seconds which isn’t too bad, after all. Keep in mind that this SUV isn’t designed as a sporty race car.


The agility, style, and size are somewhat the unique characteristic that makes the Q5 stand out among the others. Sure, there may not be too many updates on the exterior changes but it doesn’t mean that this model will be cheesy or disappointing. With the rear sheet metal, rounded roofline, and solid construction, the Q model is good and yet not too much. It still retains the elegance luxury  that has been the trademark of Audi and you can be sure that you won’t lose its appeal for this new model.


With the four TFSI cylinder 2.0 liter engine that is delivering 252 hp of power, the 2018 Audi Q5 is smooth and powerful enough when paired with the automatic seven speed dual clutch transmission. There won’t be any diesel option for this line but Audi promises that they are going to make a more powerful model with promising air suspension after the Q5s is introduced and sold. It is also possible that they are going to make the hybrid plug-in system. Audi is known for their smooth and powerful driving experience and it won’t be different with this one

Price and Release Date

Audi hasn’t said about the exact launching date although it is highly likely that they are going to do it this spring. The starting price for this 2018 Audi Q5 is around $42,000.
