2017 Audi Q5 – first images and details

Audi is currently working on a new generation of the Q5 which is said to make its way onto the market in a couple of years, with a new chassis, new looks, technologies and engines.

The German based automaker is putting the finishing touches on the new generation of the Q7, later on this year, and after that will be completed, it will focus on the development of its smaller brother, the Q5. New technologies which will be added to the 2015 Audi Q7 will eventually make their way onto the future Q5, which will be riding on the MLB architecture, underpinning the next Audi A4 generation.

The new Q5’s curb weight is hoping to be reduced by 100 kg which should reflect in fuel economy and handling. As far as the engine lineup goes, this will consist of four- and six-cylinder units, but, at first, a plug-in hybrid will be offered. This should be named the “e-quattro” and it will be mixing the hybrid technology with four-wheel drive. The electric-only range will stand at approximately 30 miles, in this version.

The best-sellers will remain the traditional powered versions such as the 2.0 liter TDI which, in its future version, is said to return 60 mpg (UK). Two outputs will become available for the 3.0 liter V6 diesel, one for the regular Q5 and one for the SQ5. After the launch of the new Q5, the “Q” family will be expanded with a Q6, which should be a more practical model, similar to a 7-seat MPV. The new Q5 is said to be launched in the middle of 2016, with a starting price of 32,000 GBP.
