After a multitude of teasers, has finally been unveiled Audi Q5 2017. The SUV of the four rings is renewed in the Paris Salon 2016 and brings with it a multitude of new features. In the first place we will notice major similarities with its older brother, the Audi Q7. And not only in his appearance, but also by dimensions, since the Q5 2017 grows slightly up to 4,66 meters long, 1,89 meters wide and 1,66 m high. Its wheelbase is 2,82 meters.
This is accentuated by a exterior more robust, but without losing an iota of dynamism. in the front stands out the grill with edges chrome and the narrow headlights Matrix LED. In the behind the changes are minor, releasing a few riders rear LED redesigned. Although one of the main innovations we don’t see it, because it is an improved aerodynamics (coefficient of 0.30 Cx), and weight reduction. Thanks to the use of aluminum is achieved save up to 90 kg.
That its dimensions are larger results in a improvement of habitability. The interior is more spacious and the trunk grows up to the 550-610 liters (depends on the position of the second row of seats). When you fight it you get nothing less than 1.550 liters. And of course, no waiver of the technology. We will have the Virtual Cockpit with a screen of 12.3-inch, head-up display and all sorts of systems that already incorporate other models in the range.
In the range of engines you’ll also find a little bit of everything. For the part of the diesel starts on the 2.0 TDI with three levels power: 150, 163 and 190 HP. It follows the 3.0 TDI V6 of 286 HP and 620 Nm. For the part of the gasoline there will be only one option, the 2.0 TFSI 252 HP. In terms of the gearboxes we will have a six-speed manual, an automatic S-Tronic seven-speed and a automatic tiptronic eight-speed for the diesel more powerful.
All versions of the Audi Q5 and 2017 will come with all-wheel drive quattro, except the 2.0 TDI of 150 HP. In this case you will have to pay extra for that is not front wheel drive. Another of the great novelties of the SUV is the possibility to equip a air suspension adaptive as we saw in the Q7. The new model will be built at San José Chiapa (Mexico) and in Spain, the Q5 2.0 TDI 163 BHP quattro S-tronic will have a price of 46.800 euros.
