This year, Audi should present the restyled version of its Q5. Unsurprisingly, it should not really evolve aesthetically speaking, the main developments should be under the hood with a nice update of the engines. We may already have a glimpse of this since the brand has just announced the arrival of two new engines in the French catalog. The first is called "Q5 50 TFSI e quattro" and replaces version 55 presented last year. Behind these extended names, we find two petrol and plug-in hybrid engines. The first, presented last year, develops 367 horsepower and starts from 67,080 euros.
299 horsepower and 40 km of all-electric
The second, which has just been unveiled, combines a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine with 252 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque with an electric motor of 143 horsepower with a combined power of 299 horsepower. In terms of performance, the 0 to 100 km / h is announced in 6.1 seconds and the maximum speed at 239 km / h, and up to 135 km / h in 100% electric mode. Precisely, in all electric, according to the WLTP cycle, the range displayed would be more than 40 kilometers. The prices are obviously a little more "contained" compared to the 55 model since they start from 55,800 euros. At this price, you will find, as standard, 18-inch alloy wheels, three-zone automatic air conditioning, a tailgate with electric opening and closing, cruise control or even parking assistance. back.
Diesel still topical at Audi
The Q5 also has a new diesel engine, the 40 TDI model. It is not a rechargeable hybrid model but a mild-hybrid, that is to say that the heat engine is assisted by an alternator-starter powered by a small 48-volt battery. What to grab a few grams of CO2 by the way. The car is fitted with a 204-cylinder four-cylinder diesel engine, quattro all-wheel drive and a S tronic robotic gearbox. Audi announces a 0 to 100 km / h shot in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 222 km / h. It will take a minimum of 50'080 euros to afford a Q5 equipped with this engine.
