The tfsi is Audi’s own technology which as the name suggest directly injects petrol to the combustion chamber to get you the efficiency of the 1L litre engine while running on par with 3L engines.
The Audi Q5 comes in petrol, diesel and Hybrid variant, with transmission 8 speed Tiptronic, 6 speed manual respectively.

The car has also gone through some safety upgrades as well not only in the new Audi Q5 you’ll get the standard safety devices such as the stability control, anti-lock braking system, air bags, auto delay headlight off, anti-theft system, xenon high density lamps but this new Audi is equipped with a special system which would detect the driver’s condition and would alert the driver if he/she’s feeling tired on a long journey. And if that’s not enough then you should know that the car has room for 4-5 people, but you can also keep a lot of things in the boot room due to the seat folding option it has.
Its compact size allows it to be parked easily compared to the Q7 which is a common SUV, it is quite fun to drive too.

Apart from this, the car looks truly remarkable and elegant.
The built quality is extremely brilliant! And with the combination of its performance and the efficiency, this is one of those cars which you’d love to drive around with your family, going to a beach with your things stuffed in the car and have an evil grin on your face when you’re cruising on the freeway.
