"The Q5 has brisk acceleration from a standstill, and you'll have no problem getting it up to highway and passing speeds. Both transmissions are smooth, but the seven-speed dual-clutch has particularly fast shifts that make for a more engaging drive." -- U.S. News & World Report

No other luxury SUV prioritizes your safety quite like the Audi Q5. You'll experience an extra set of eyes to keep you safe from the unexpected with the Audi suite of advanced driver assistance technologies. Standard Audi pre senseⓇ city can detect stationary vehicles and pedestrians at speeds of up to 52 MPH, prepare you for an imminent collision, and begin emergency braking. Using radar sensors and optical warnings, Rear cross traffic assist can alert you to approaching vehicles and suggest to stop the vehicle. Standard on Prestige trim levels, Audi park steering assist is able to measure gaps and automatically steer into them. In an effort to warn you and the front passenger of vehicles or cyclists approaching from behind, Vehicle exit assist will alert you before you open the front doors. These technologies are able to brace you for an imminent collision by partially closing the sunroof and side windows along with pretensioning the front safety belts.
