2009 AUDI Q5

The Q5 is Audi’s new compact luxury 5-passenger SUV that joins the Audi lineup alongside the full-size Q7. A sporty, compact SUV, the Q5 features a wide stance, bold fender flares and available 20-inch wheels. The clamshell cargo hatch is similar to the styling of the larger Q7, providing a wide opening for easy loading but only needing a small space behind the vehicle to raise the hatch. Split taillights, like those on the Q7, leave lights visible even with the hatch open. Inside is a large cargo area that can be expanded by either sliding the rear seats forward or folding them flat. Audi is expected to announce a clean-diesel TDI version at a later time.

The new 2009 Audi Q5 is powered by is powered for the U.S. market exclusively by a 270-horsepower 3.2-liter V6 FSI with direct injection, quattro all-wheel drive and a 6-speed Tiptronic transmission. The Audi Q5 is the first Audi offering with Generation 3 MMI, and navigation with real-time SIRIUS traffic information.
