What the Critics Say

"The Audi Q5 has been among the most popular compact luxury crossover SUVs for years, and with good reason. It combines a spacious, comfortable and hushed cabin with Audi's traditionally strong cabin quality and in-dash smarts." -- Roadshow by CNET

"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

Audi Q5 Performance

Dynamic Performance

A balanced 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque comes from the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engine of the Audi Q5. This responsive powertrain has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as 5.7 seconds, adding excitement to your daily commute. Proven quattroⓇ all-wheel drive with ultraⓇ technology maximizes performance and efficiency by powering the front wheels as often as possible while still retaining the ability to direct power and grip to the tires which need it most. Five driver-selectable modes in Audi drive select can tailor the throttle response, transmission shifts, and steering to match your preferences. The Q5 boasts a towing capacity of up to 4,400 pounds when equipped with the available trailer hitch**, allowing even your biggest toys to come along for the adventure.

Q5 Plug-In Hybrid

Designed with an electric motor combined with a conventional TFSI® gasoline engine, the Audi Q5 Plug-In Hybrid blends power and versatility with unparalleled efficiency. When EV mode is chosen by the driver, the Q5 Plug-In Hybrid has a range of 19 miles that gives buyers the option to drive without any tailpipe emissions. As a result of the TFSI® and EV powertrain state, the Q5 PHEV is rated at an EPA-estimated 65 MPGe. Similar to the electrified Audi e-tron, the Q5 PHEV comes standard with a compact charging system and can be charged at any SAE J1772 charging station. Plug-in-specific applications in the myAudi app give you the ability to remotely monitor or customize charging functions to suit your needs. Audi anticipates that the Q5 PHEV may be eligible for both federal and/or state tax incentives. Ultra Blue and District Green are two exclusive colors found on the Q5 PHEV to help set them stand out from the competition.

Optional MMIⓇ touch with handwriting-recognition technology simplifies how you navigate maps by allowing your to "write" their desired entry as opposed to using buttons. You'll enjoy unmatched comfort from standard heated eight-way power front seats featuring seat memory and four-way power lumbar adjustments for the driver.

2020 Audi Q5 Safety

Driver-Assistive Safety

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.
