It’s quick too, with a 0-60 time of 6.7 seconds and it also has a best-in-class tow capacity of 4,400 pounds. The Q5 also has available Audi Drive Select, allowing the driver to fine tune steering, engine, and damper characteristics at the push of a button. Sharing a platform with the popular Audi A4, the Q5 sports a 3.2-liter V6 engine producing 270 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only available transmission.
On the inside, there’s three-zone climate control, and third-generation navigation to keep the Q5 on the map. In 2010, a new 20-inch, five-segment spoke wheel finds its way aboard S line variants, while a new Fine Grain Ash wood finish and ventilated front seats can be selected inside. The Q5 is also listed as a “Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
