The upgraded premium SUV comes to market in Europe as the Audi Q5 40 TDI. . Its powerful two-liter four-cylinder diesel generates 150 kW (204 PS) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft). The aluminum crankcase weighs approx. 20 kilograms (44.1 lbs) less than that of the previous engine, while the crankshaft is around 2.5 kilograms (5.5 lbs) lighter.
The mild hybrid system (MHEV) contributes to the low fuel consumption. A belt-driven starter/generator (BSG) supplies the 12-volt vehicle electrical system, which incorporates a compact lithium-ion battery. The BSG recuperates braking energy and stores it in the battery. The MHEV system enables the Audi Q5 to coast with the engine off, and allows for start-stop mode at speeds below 22 km/h (13.7 mph). Overall, this results in a fuel-efficiency improvement of approx. 0.3 liters per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi).
The Audi Q5 40 TDI accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 7.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 222 km/h (137.9 mph).
The powerful diesel engine is not only efficient, but also clean – meeting the requirements of the latest Euro 6d-ISC-FCM emissions standard and EU 6 AP. Nitrogen oxide emissions are reduced significantly thanks to a new twin-dosing SCR system with dual AdBlue injection. The urea solution is added upstream of two SCR catalytic converters arranged in series. More engine versions will follow after the launch of the updated Q5: two further power variants of the four-cylinder TDI, a V6 TDI and two 2.0-liter four-cylinder TFSI engines. The successful Q5 TFSI e with plug-in hybrid drive will also be offered again in two output variants.
Both sporty and comfortable – the well-balanced running gear is a great strength of the Audi Q5. The multilink suspension front and rear are exceptionally lightweight, thus improving not only handling, but also efficiency. Available as an option for the Q5 is Audi’s dynamic steering, which varies its ratio by up to 100 percent in accordance with speed and steering angle.
Q5 customers can choose from four setup options. The sports suspension offers an alternative to the standard suspension. The standard suspension with steel springs is also available with damper control and delivers a broad spread between comfortable and dynamic. As well as damper control, the adaptive air suspension can also vary the ground clearance of the bodyshell in five stages, which makes it an exceptionally good match for the Q5.
The Audi drive select handling system, which influences the characteristics of several technical components, is part of the standard equipment package. The driver can choose from up to seven profiles, including off-road and all-road (with air suspension). The hill descent assistant provides support on steep inclines. The Audi Q5 runs as standard on 17-inch alloy wheels. The advanced line and S line come with 18-inch wheels, while Audi and Audi Sport also offer further 19, 20 and 21-inch wheel designs.
The Audi Q5 is built at the San José Chiapa plant in Mexico and will come to international markets in fall 2020. The starting price in Germany for the Q5 40 TDI is 48,700 euros.
