The names of the Audi cars are assigned in a special way, so the SUV, similar to the Audi A4, is called the Q5, but not the Q4.
The Audi Q5 release was launched in 2008. Each year, the auto production of this lineup was carried out. Currently, it is planned to transfer another car of the same kind into mass production.
This car is a full-size crossover or the SUV.
While it is being tested, and the official date for the demo is unknown, it’s only mentioned that this event will be held at the beginning of the next year. At the moment, it takes this car a certain number of hours to drive in order to improve its readiness for release.
According to several photos, that have randomly become available, a few new design changes of the 2017 Audi Q5 are rather distinctly noticeable. The sides of the car body will be in a slightly smooth shape; and also the developers have added the hexagonal front grille.
Rectangular and rather narrow spotlights are arranged on the sides of the grille. It makes the car more aggressive and expands the front part of it. The air intakes, traditional for cars of the company, are rather visible under the headlights.
In other aspects the design of this car resembles the one of the other models of the company, because the German manufacturers never strive to change the exterior of their innovations.
The used protective panels are very similar to those installed on the Audi Q7. The most striking new feature of the car is a three – dimensional rear lights. They resemble those installed on the Macans, which became a source of inspiration for the auto developers, but would be created according to the Audi style.
The rearview mirrors are placed differently. They are significantly reduced in size, in comparison with the ones in the predecessors. The Germans also decided to move the mirrors from the front struts and place them on the doors. The gently sloped roof and the distinctive lined façade draw attention and cannot fail to impress.
On the rear of the car there is a spoiler, which engineers had placed on the trunk lid. The exhaust pipes are integral with the bumper on the rear.
The photos also reflect the colors of the new car. This is a camouflage in the form of whorls. In other photos the Audi Q5 appears in its black color. It is possible that the camouflage pattern is only on the test sample, and other automobiles of this type will look traditionally.
The engineers strive to minimize the vehicle weight for almost a hundred pounds; so the new body will be built on the MLB modular platform. For the mass production, the vehicles of this type will be based on the easier and more perfect MLB 2 modular platform. The same is located in the Q7 and the A4 Audi models. This will help to make the innovation more mobile and modern as well as to improve its qualitative characteristics.
The engine of the 2017 Audi Q5 will be similar to the engine of the Audi A4 sedan. The company has developed a strong 2.0 TFSI engine, which is installed on this auto model. It is possible to make fuel savings with its help. Naturally, this car will have several engine options that will be applied by the company in 2016. Different types of engines, from 2.0 TDI to 3.0 TDI will be installed in the lineup; which can produce 218, 274 and even 320 horsepower.
The most curious should have a little patience, before getting some more information to learn about the upcoming product, because the marketing department of the company is in no hurry to remove the veil of secrecy referring to their sensational innovation. But the secret won’t be kept for too long. At the beginning of the next year, there will be an official presentation of the Audi Q5 and the production is scheduled to begin in late 2016.
It is yet unknown info as for the quantity of the cars planned to produce and the place where they will mostly take its release. However, after the production of this model gains popularity, the company plans to acquaint the potential buyers with the Audi Q5 RS model, one more innovation of this lineup of cars. Some experts consider that the Audi strives to surpass the Macan.
