Many customers have cited the exterior design of the Audi Q5 as a primary purchasereason for choosing it over competitors in its segment. Low overhangs that lead tostrong fender arches give the Audi Q5 a powerful stance. The sleek roofline andintegrated body rails, add to the visual appeal of the vehicle and assist in maintaining alow drag coefficient of 0.33, which improves fuel economy and reduces wind noise.

evoke an inviting warmth. Components are well executed throughout the interior, with

easy-to-read instrumentation, and easy-to-reach controls. The center console houses

technologies for which Audi has built a reputation, with the Q5 offering Audi MMI®,

available Audi MMI Navigation plus and Audi music interface. Interior space is abundant

thanks to the long wheel-base of the Q5. Leather seating surfaces and available Milano

leather seating surfaces make the Audi Q5 a place where drivers and passengers enjoy

spending time.

Safety in the Audi Q5 is further enhanced in a number of ways, including both driver and
