What's New For 2018?
The Q5 has been totally revamped for 2018. The second-generation Q5 features an all-new all-wheel-drive system, a more powerful base engine, and a fresh interior and exterior design. It is also equipped with more standard and optional safety and technological features than before.
The 2018 Audi Q5 comes only as a compact luxury SUV. Each Q5 comes with standard all-wheel-drive and is available in a number of different color options. The exterior is refined and looks refreshingly contemporary with its massive chrome-trimmed grille and slanted headlights.
You can take your pick between three different trim levels. The 2018 Audi Q5's trims (the Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige) all come equipped with a standard turbocharged 2.0-L 4-cylinder engine that is capable of generating 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, which gives ample power to these vehicles. Each base engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The only downside is that this is the only engine configuration offered on the Q5.
If you are looking for a quiet, smooth ride, the 2018 Audi Q5 has it. Stability control does not interfere too much when driving at normal speeds along paved roadways. Despite being equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, the Q5 has a remarkable amount of pep and can get from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. Braking also feels remarkably secure, as you can make a panic stop from 60 mph in a distance of about 114 feet, which is good for this class. As far as steering and handling go, while there is not much feedback that is given to the driver, the Q5 confidently handles turns in the road.
The 2018 Audi Q5 gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 mpg combined (with 23 mpg city and 27 mpg highway). This gives the new Q5 a 3 mpg boost over the outgoing model. In fact, these estimates place the Audi Q5 right at the top of the pack, beating out the Volvo XC60 and the BMW X3, the Q5's stiffest competition. For being powered by a 2.0-L 4-cylinder engine, the Audi Q5 delivers a good punch of power without compromising its best-in-class fuel economy.
The all-new, second-generation Audi Q5 has undergone a moderate amount of changes, but there was not that much that truly needed to be altered. The Q5 sits atop the pack of other compact crossover SUVs and is absolutely worthy of a test drive.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Audi Q5 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Audi Q5 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
