No compromises are made when it comes to power. Nevertheless, it helps to save on fuel.
The Audi Q5 will initially be offered with five strong and efficient engines: four TDI and one TFSI. They feature up to 20 kW (27 HP) of power. However, fuel consumption is considerably lower. In particular, the 2.0 TDI engines in the new Q5, which feature 110 kW (150 HP), 120 kW (163 HP), and 140 kW (190 HP), are highly efficient.
Both top engines combine whopping power with efficiency. The enhanced 2.0 TFSI can deliver up to 185 kW (252 HP) of power but only requires 6.8 of petrol for 100 km – a CO₂ equivalent of 154 g/km. The revised 3.0 TDI delivers up to 210 kW (286 HP) of power and 620 Nm of torque.
The entire powertrain of the Audi Q5 has been developed from scratch – the same applies for the six-speed manual transmission, the seven-speed S tronic, and the eight-speed tiptronic (only the 3.0 TDI). The automatic drive features a fuel-saving freewheeling function. They are controlled with a selector lever or shift paddles on the steering wheel. In both cases, the signal transmission is electronic.
