2013 Audi Q5

After several leaked images recently hit the web, Audi has officially released details of its facelifted Q5 SUV.

Visually, the changes are pretty mild and include an evolved single-frame grille with beveled upper edges and sculpted vertical chrome struts, headlamps with curved LED running lights on the optional xenon plus units, modified bumpers with integrated air inlets, high-gloss black inserts and chromed-trimmed and fog lights. The rear bumper gets a diffuser section and revised tailpipes, while the tail-lights also use LED technology to match the fronts.

Moving inside, Audi has added chrome trim elements to the steering column control stalks, ignition key and instruments, an updated MMI navigation plus system, three-zone air conditioning and climate-controlled comfort seats with a ventilation action. A total of 35 different upholstery combinations can be specified in fabric and leather with inlays available in aluminium or three different wood veneers.

New engines include a new 2.0 TFSI, which develops 165 kW (225 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque and consumes 7.6 litres per 100 km, while the outgoing 3.2-litre has been replaced by the supercharged 3.0 TFSI. Producing 200 kW (272 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), 100 km/h appears in 5.9 seconds before it tops out at 234 km/h (145 mph). Combined fuel consumption is 8.5 litres every 100 kilometres.

The new Q5 hybrid quattro uses a 2.0 TFSI with 155 kW (211 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque along with a 40 kW (54 hp) electric motor. With a 0-100 km/h time of 7.1 s and a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph), performance is brisk, while a range of three kilometres can be covered purely in electric mode – at a constant speed of 60 km/h. Combined fuel consumption for the hybrid is just 6.9 litres per 100 km.
