2018 Audi Q5: An Efficient Yet Playful Approach to Luxury Performance

Newly-retuned to optimize for fuel economy and efficiency, without sacrificing performance or pleasure, the new 2018 Audi Q5 returned a surprising--and class-leading--25 combined mpg city/highway.

One of the big updates that helped the new 2018 Audi Q5 shed a stunning 3 mpg from its economy rating is the model's quattro® all-wheel-drive system with ultra technology, that makes it possible for the vehicle to disengage the rear axle when it's not necessary to send torque to all four wheels. This doesn't compromise an inch of performance--the system can react and re-engage all-wheel drive in a millisecond, adjusting to fit the terrain and environment before you even notice a thing.

The new model is also roomier (cargo room boosts up to 60.4 cubic feet of total storage area) and offers a bolder, sportier design. Under the hood, a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter TFSI® four-cylinder engine is mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed S-tronic® automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Features like a hands-free tailgate release, touchscreen infotainment, tri-zone climate control, Audi virtual cockpit, and integration for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you unfettered control, connection, and comfort.

2018 Audi S4: A Sport Sedan with Attitude, and Without Rival

Newly redesigned for 2018--after taking off a model-year to introspect--the new Audi S4 is blowing away the competition in a flurry of road dust and surmounted expectations. Sweeping lines and deep wheel arches create the perception of size and bulk, without taking up any more room on the road than absolutely necessary to optimize for weight and performance.

Under the hood, a 354-horsepower 3.0-liter TFSI® V-6 engine comes standard, paired to a sharp new eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission. Audi's quattro® all-wheel-drive system comes standard to boost capability and handling--and for your own enjoyment.

With two trim levels available--Premium Plus and Prestige--the new 2018 Audi S4 compact sedan will boast featured options like heated and massaging front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, and LED head- and taillights, as well as Audi's legendary Virtual Cockpit Display.

2018 Audi A5: Smarter Technology for Family Drivers

Sleek and refined, this unique compact two-door option boasts an all-new exterior for 2018 and three distinct configurations. The new design features a classic feel, a dignified posture, and a sharp look that pulls it all together.

The A5 design is complemented by a new powertrain option: a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter TFSI® four-cylinder engine, paired to a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission for the first time. With standard Audi drive select and available quattro® all-wheel drive, this stunningly powerful and efficient powertrain is equipped on every new 2018 Audi A5 model.

Extensive feature lists and package options help you further outfit and upgrade the 2018 A5, with features like Audi virtual cockpit and MMI® touch, available safety systems like Audi pre sense® city, with adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, and more.

The sport-inspired and high-performance variant of the A5 model, the sweeping new 2018 Audi S5 improves on past personas with a razor-sharp new design and a boosted powertrain. Standard on every new S5 model, a 354-horsepower 3.0-liter TFSI® V-6 engine pairs elegantly and wonderfully with an eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission for unparalleled acceleration and handling. Audi quattro® all-wheel drive is available on all models.

Since the 2018 Audi S5 is built up in horsepower and torque from the A5, it offers many similar features, technology options, safety systems, and interior features and materials like leather and Alcantara seating surfaces, intricate stitching, touchscreen infotainment, and premium audio.

2018 Audi SQ5:

Still in the wings, the 2018 Audi SQ5 promises to be a thrilling addition to Audi's luxury SUV lineup.

Here's what we do know: the new SQ5 SUV is looking to be the sportiest crossover in Charlotte. With a turbocharged, 354-horsepower 3.0-liter TFSI® V-6 engine equipped as standard--replacing the previous generation's supercharged engine--an eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission offering smoother shifting and handling, and an available torque-vectoring rear differential equipped on "S Sport" package models, the 2018 Audi SQ5 is a true SUV with the kind of specs that you'd find in a track-ready sports car.

The interior of the SQ5 is also, naturally, infused with a much sportier feel than the tamer Q5, with a flat-bottom steering wheel, bolstered sport seats, Bang & Olufsen premium sound, and distinctive design accents.
