Will be shipped from Mexico.
From what we observe, the face gets a more aggressive grille as seen on the new Q7. It will also have large air intakes and LED Matrix headlamps.
The new Q5 will be based on the company’s MLB platform that is made from a mixture of aluminium and high-strength steel, and this will reportedly result in more than 100 kg reduction in overall weight. The interior, adhering to the new design, will have a simple, flowing layout that mirrors the one found in the new Q7 and A4. Audi’s latest MMI infotainment system will come as standard while Virtual Cockpit system with full-screen navigation is expected to be optional.
It has been reported that the 2016 Audi Q5 will would source engines from the new Audi A4. If that is the case, it will come with a choice of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Audi’s Quattro AWD system will be seen in higher trims with a hybrid model is also in the making. It has been confirmed that the new Q5 will be launched in mid-2016.
