[VIDEO] Audi Q5 promo released – “Don’t be a Lexus RX” image

The German based automaker Audi has released a new promotional video with the Q5 crossover in the United States named “Be Yourself”.

The video posted below isn’t following the same path as other Audi promos and it’s starting with a body riding in the back seat of his mom’s Q5 who is noticing that everyone is driving the same SUV, the Lexus RX. Audi is telling us to be ourselves in this new commercial and if everybody else is choosing the Lexus RX, we should choose the more expensive Q5. I wonder if it works the other way around.

The facelifted Audi Q5 is coming with some aesthetic modifications in its front side, like the new front grille with chrome inserts, revised headlamps with LEDs, new fog lamps and redesigned front bumper, while the rear fascia is now coming with a new bumper and LED taillights. The cabin of the German crossover is also getting some minor modifications, but the equipment level is rising and the materials used have a better quality. The 2013 Audi Q5 will also get a hybrid version made from the 2.0 liter TFSI engine, with 211 HP and 350 Nm of torque (258 lb-ft), and an electric motor, generating 54 HP and 210 Nm of torque (154 lb-ft).

    Not sure where you are getting your numbers from but the Q5 was less expensive than the RX350 when we leased our Audi last week. More vehicle for less money.

      Not according to the prices I received at the dealerships last week! I lease a car, and a specific amount of money comes out of my account each month. That is what I pay, and that is what the vehicle costs over the 4 years. Taking into consideration the exact two vehicles, base engine, Leather, Power Tailgate, All wheel drive, Bluetooth, Power/Heated Seats, Xenon Headlights, 4 year lease, 20K per year, nothing down…. the Audi was cheaper.

      As for your second comment, the RX is better…. that might be the most vague comment I have ever read! Better at what? Better for whom? … the Audi was the better vehicle for us…
