Design, Comfort & Features of the 2018 Audi Q5

There's a lot that goes into the new Q5, a sporty SUV perfect for Norfolk and Newport News drivers with the family in tow. Like any Audi, the Q5 is going to make its worth and value known through its sense of performance, technology, safety and capabilities, but the overall design and comfort shouldn't be overlooked. See below what makes the new Q5 a gorgeously designed luxury SUV.

Combining with the dynamic sense of performance and the innovative technology offered in the new 2018 Audi Q5 is a sense of comfort and luxury in terms of interior setup and exterior styling.

Striking & Stylish Exterior

On the outside, the Q5 is designed to impress from your first look. The sporty design utilizes the iconic Audi front single-frame grille and icon that centers a pair of dynamic LED headlights, while the sides display a forward-flowing look with gorgeously designed lines stretching front to back. The back is highlighted by the hands-free tailgate release, as well as the LED taillights with easily noticeable turn signals.

Comforting & Convenient Features Within

Exacting performance and compelling, dynamic design gives way to soft, supple materials and a welcoming, restful interior within.

  • With upgraded materials, a better ergonomic design, and the most cutting-edge technology available, the interior of the 2018 Audi Q5 is awash in luxury and tech.
  • The available Audi virtual cockpit gives you a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster, which you can customize with information from your optional navigation system or audio inputs.
  • The Updated Audi MMI® infotainment system has increased in terms of ease-of-use, and an optional touchpad only enhances that.

Just as the exterior of the new Q5 is gorgeously designed to appeal to your sense of sight, the interior is similarly setup to appeal to all your senses, as well as to accommodate the highest levels of comfort for you and your passengers. Starting with the dashboard, you'll have an assortment of driver information display screens and infotainment controls readily available as you make your way around. Leather seating surfaces offer the sense of luxury you're looking for, while the rear cargo area is expansive, and can be made even larger thanks to the split-folding rear seats.

Finally, the three-zone automatic climate control system is easy to use for all passengers, and it keeps everyone completely comfortable no matter where you're driving. And with the available panoramic sunroof, the spacious cabin appears even larger inside, creating a luxurious sense of comfort.
