We are pretty sure that you are as thrilled as we have been when we heard that the German Gigant has officially announced that their brand new 2016 Audi Q5 is ready to see the light of the day. But, we admit that we were a bit worried about when we heard that the vast amount of the Audi Q5 is going to be produced in San Jose, Mexico. Despite that fact, we are, absolutely, sure that the German perfectionists won’t let anything to the case and that the production of this beautiful Audi Q5, will unwind under the waking eye of its German makers. The current available Q5 has originally been made in the distant 2008 and since then, it has suffered only smaller modifications and upgrades. So, the officials from Audi came to the conclusion that now presents just the perfect time to launch a brand new 2016 Audi Q5, which is now going to use the brand newly crafted- modular VW platform. As a direct result of a using this newly made platform, the Audi Q5 is going to possess a slightly sportier overall appearance and to be, somehow, lighter (at least 220 pounds) without having to make too many unnecessary compromises.
2016 Audi Q5 Interior, Exterior & Appearance
Although the vast majority of their customers were very satisfactory with the previous model(s), the newer one is expected to be, even, better.
First and foremost, the Audi’s developers have in their minds to boost, in a way, its general appearance. This fact applies equally to the exterior and the interior. Looking at the exterior design, it is planned to change dramatically by introducing a brand new design scheme, which is going to be very similar to the new Q7. This, in reality, means, that the sharper lines and a bit clearer design will prevail throughout the vehicle, making, at the same time, the 2016 Audi Q5 quite charming and utterly handsome.
As for the interior design concerns, the most notable will be improvements in the quality of materials being used. It is planned that newly made Audi retains its well-known same flat bottom steering wheel as before. All new feature, for this brand new edition, is planned to be an all-new designed infotainment system, which will provide 4G connectivity as well as the satellite radio and navigation.

When it comes to the engine, the biggest difference between the current and newly made one will be reflected in a slightly broader range of the motor options. This time newly made 2016 Audi Q5 is going to be available in two petrol engines and hybrid option, which will be placed under its hood.
The base motor option is planned to be a 2.0-liter TFSI powerplant, which will be capable just enough to generate up to a 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the second one available petrol option, the most likely, will be slightly bigger- a 3.0-liter V6 TFSI that is considered to be capable enough to pump up to a 272 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque.
For those drivers, who desire to drive more efficient cars, the 2016 Audi Q5 TDI will be equipped with 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6, which will be able to develop the strength of amazingly 240 horsepower and to deliver approximate about a 428 lb-ft of torque, at the same unit of time. This particularly motor option will be available paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
And the last but, certainly, not the least important (or potent) powerplant option is a hybrid one. The most likely, it will be a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine matched with an electric motor and this particular powertrain will be able to generate up to 245 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque.
