Self Study Program 433 – Audi Q5

VAG SSP 433. This Self-Study Programme describes the design and function of the new Audi Q5. With the introduction of the Audi Q5, Audi is extending its model range to include a compact SUV that sets new standards in its class. In addition to the Audi Q7 and the Audi A6 allroad quattro, Audi is now introducing a third model for the off-road segment.

The Audi Q5 will be manufactured at the Ingolstadt facility, this being a logical choice of location because the Audi Q5 is based on components used in the Audi A4 ‘08.

The new Audi Q5 combines the dynamism of a sports saloon with highly variable interior and versatile options for leisure-time and family use. Strong and efficient engines, Quattro permanent all-wheel drive and agile running gear have been brought together to create a superior technology package for both on and off road driving. Highlights such as the innovative S tronic seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and the Audi drive select driving  dynamics system are the evidence that substantiates the Q5’s claim to Vorsprung durch Technik. The sportiest SUV in its class, it is  dynamic, multifunctional and comfortable.
