After the A4 sedan in 2015 and in the wake of the A5 coupé and cabriolet introduced last autumn, the SUV Q5 is the third Audi to join the ranks of the models that are difficult to distinguish from their predecessors. It is a sad privilege for some, an enviable success to believe in others.
The jealous will point out that the Audi Q5 (born in 2008) would probably not have held up well enough if it had not been driven by the explosion of demand for recreational vehicles. This surge will allow the Q5 as well as the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Volvo XC60 (Click to read our first impressions on the new Volvo XC60 unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2017) to escape this rule that a model sees the curve of His sales stitched from the nose to the fourth anniversary of his birth. As proof, the Audi Q5 can boast of having systematically broke its record sales year after year.
Just like a BMW 7 Series or a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Rupert Stadler, the boss of the Ring brand, says the A8 will be the standard bearer of the brand. It will propose, among other things, an autonomous behavior of first order but which will not be active in the short term due to the legislation.
The RS 4 and RS 6 (Rear body front) and the RS 7 will also be used. The latter two should exceed 600 hp because the current RS 6 Performance already develops 605 and reaches 305 km / h at top speed.
