Hans Lehmann have snapped the first pics of an Audi Q5 prototype in testing on public roads. The Audi Q5, a small luxury crossover, will be underpinned by the A5 platform, including the FSI 2.0L turbo, 3.2L inline six, and even a 4.2L V8. Diesel options will be available in Europe and may be that they’ll be available in the States also.
Other options for the Q5 include hill descent control and air suspension, but due to the small size of the A5 platform a third row doesn’t seem plausible. Audi has a goal to reach 1.5 million annual sales by 2015, and we think the Q5 will go a long way towards that goal.
