2017 Audi Q5 production model testing new engines

By

After the release of the new Audi Q7 on the market, the company is already testing a pre-production version of the Q5, which has taken much of its appearance from its older brother. The new Audi will be shown in 2016 at one of the next Auto Shows.

2017 Audi Q5  release date

The name of the prototype is the B5 and it’s already being tested on the sunny roads of Spain.

It appears that the prototype is virtually ready. All that remains is to make a small tweak to adjust the chassis and engines. Most likely, the new car will be shown before the end of 2016. Get ready to order.

Release date: end of 2016

2017 Audi Q5 redesign

The body has a “reduced” grille, like the Audi Q7, but its harmony is a contentious issue. No wonder it has been criticized by many auto journalists for its novelty. However, the company has decided not to change the concept, and as has now become clear, it will feature in the entire range of Quattro along with the new Q3.

2017 Audi Q5 price

The company promises to keep the price of the starting model in the range of $41,000, whereas the price for the hybrid is $13,000 higher.

The grille has a hexagonal shape and is located in the center of the front fascia. The front headlights are likely to be narrower than on the predecessor, but they are expected to have the new LED optics. The front bumper looks powerful – one could even say muscular.

The lateral line has a familiar Audi note, but you can see the line rising from the front and rear ends. The car has become more slick, and the angle of the windshield has increased.

It is also necessary to mention the three-dimensional taillights, which are not visible on the spy shots, but have been cited by the manufacturer. And the rest is generally standard, with the addition of the upper spoiler and the reflectors in the rear bumper.

2017 Audi Q5 weight reduced

We note that the new model will be about 100 kg lighter (due to the use of composite materials), which should have a beneficial impact on fuel consumption.

2017 Audi Q5 engines and transmission

The company will demonstrate new parts here, so it is expected that a new 2.0-liter TFSI with a capacity of 190 HP will be set in the initial configuration. The manufacturer assures its high efficiency – the expense will be only 6-7 liters per 100 km, or around 37 mpg. It will be much more economical than the version with 252 HP, which is also installed in this unit with an engine displacement of 2 liters.

The diesel engines are unchanged, ranging from 2.0 TDI to 3.0 TDI capacity with 218, 272 and 320 HP (the latter will be installed in the SQ5 version).

Audi sources also assure the possible emergence of another powerful V6 engine which will come with co-production with Porsche.
