Audi Q5 45 TFSI Quattro 2021 Review

How good is the new Audi Q5 45 TFSI, stick around for a minute and find out? Audi Q5 is the top selling vehicle for Audi and the recent update early in 2021 has kept it at the forefront of the segment.

Audi Q5 45 TFSI Quattro 2021 The 45 TFSI is powered by a 2.0L turbo petrol engine with more than adequate performance. The TFSI engines act like a diesel engine with low torque delivery and a wide spread that makes for very relaxed cruising and better economy. Matched to a 7 speed sports DCT and the brilliant quattro drivetrain the Q5 provides a smooth, dynamic and safe driving experience.

The vehicle we drove starts at around $76,600 plus the usual costs and added to that was some exterior styling, rear OLED lights and the Technik package that adds the excellent matrix headlights. Without doubt the best on the market. As well as a Bang and Olufsen 3D audio system

All up price is a little over $82,000 plus the usual costs and that is actually pretty good value.

The Q5 seems to strike the almost perfect balance between style, size, performance ride and dynamic handling as well as comfort and luxury features and impressive safety.

There is a reason the Q5 is so popular, that’s because its so good
