Audi's 500Nm X3 Challenger
– Details surrounding Audi’s anticipated Q5 SUV, set for launch later in
2008, have been further fleshed out, according to the Web site www.wheels24.co.za.
The mid-sized SUV, gunning directly for X3 market territory, will have a host
of typically efficient Ingolstadt technologies beneath its contemporary styling — which contributes greatly to
the low 0.33 drag coefficient.
All Q5s will feature quattro permanent all-wheel drive distributing power in a
40:60 split between the front and rear wheels, producing slightly rear-biased,
sporty characteristics according to Audi. If traction conditions deteriorate
torque can be split in a 65-percent ratio to the front wheels, or as much as 85
percent to the rear.
