2018 Audi Q5

The Redesigned 2018 Audi Q5 SUV Has Arrived in Charlotte at Audi Northlake

We can call the second-generation Audi Q5 a bit of a late bloomer--from its first release in 2009, it's been nearly eight years since this midsize five-seater luxury SUV has seen any major redesigns: a rarity for a market in which new is always better, and playing catch-up is just part of the game. Even with its stoic endurance and consistency of style, though, the Audi Q5 remains a top seller in its class, selling well in Charlotte, and the SUV of choice for many drivers in Huntersville, Concord, Cornelius, and Lake Norman.

And with the arrival of the 2018 Audi Q5 in Charlotte, the German brand's dominance of the segment doesn't look to be slowing down.

To the untrained eye, it may look like the 2018 Audi Q5 is continuing with its legacy of familiarity. But take a closer look, and you'll see why this all-new model will be well worth the wait.

New Platform, New Style, Same Audi

Riding on the new MLB 2 platform that modern Audi models are adopting, the 2018 Audi Q5 is lighter and stiffer to offer a more responsive and dynamic driving experience. A standard 8.2-inch ride height for the Q5 gives drivers plenty of ground clearance and confidence, without giving up the aerodynamic benefits of a lower-riding luxury SUV. 2018 "Q Design" styling builds a sleek, sloping roof angle reminiscent of coupes, while the classic Singleframe four-ring Audi grille accentuates the wide, low hood that shows off the 2018 Q5's athletic stance. Updated LED headlights and daytime running lights fit seamlessly into the refined and sharp look of the front fascia, while a new hands-free power liftgate at the rear gives you effortless access to the vehicle.

New Space and New Comforts

While you may not notice a discernible change in size, the 2018 Q5 is larger than its predecessor. The convenient 40/20/40 rear seatback makes it simple to store a variety of items, and optimize for both cargo and passenger space. Fold the seats flat for up to 60.4 cubic feet of cargo space--more than the previous generation. The 2018 Q5 is built to offer a quieter cabin, and standard grain leather upholstery across the lineup speaks to the Audi brand's commitment to genuine quality and driver comfort. Available features and package options let you add Bang & Olufsen speakers, temperature-controlled seats, and more.

New and Improved Technology

New for 2018, the new Audi Q5 will offer Virtual Cockpit with 12.3-inch display, MMI touch, and smartphone connectivity on more models in the lineup; V.C. gives you direct sightline access to tools like a high-resolution Google Earth map, and replaces traditional gauges for a more modern look and feel.
