2018 Audi Q5 Photos and Info

2018 Audi Q5

The Audi has always been about clean designs which, ironically instead of subduing the design changes, tends to emphasize the boldness for which the brand stands, and that is how the 2018 Audi Q5 evolved. The original model in this line was a winning formula.

2018 Audi Q5 – Design Changes

With recessed lines between the wheels, not to mention a minimalist grille to reduce the overall car exterior looks, the Audi had gotten it right the first time around. And it has since hung onto the time-tested idea: Do not mess with something that works. However, this does not necessarily mean that nothing has really changed. In an SUV, the primary factor that makes the car inefficient is its weight.

With the 2018 Q5, the Audi has been able to get the formula just right. How is this possible you ask? Why the engineers at Audi have been known to make miracles happen. Well, not really. It is an open secret that the 2018 Audi Q5 is based on the MLB technology. Meaning that the underlying frame for the car is made of a combination of high strength steel and aluminum, both of which have been known to hold under high duress.

This translates into all the more torque for the average customer, not to mention a much better fuel economy and a higher overall top speed. Furthermore, on the insides, the car has been totally remodeled from its older version. For one, the Audi has introduced plush leather for those who want to feel a little more premium, not to mention an integration of all the next gen connectivity options into the cabin for a smoother interface both through smart phones and through the GPS devices.
