HERNDON, VA - The all new Audi Q5 crossover hit U.S. dealerships with a MSRP of $37,200 for the premium 3.2 V-6 model, debuting through commercials during the Oscars. This Q5 model comes standard with quattro all-wheel drive and a 6-speed tiptronic transmission.
Performance wise, the V-6 achieves 270 hp and an estimated 0-60 in 6.7 seconds. From a technological standpoint, the new Q5 will be offered with Audi's new Generation 3 MMI interface which will also have real-time traffic information in select areas. The Q5 also offers a towing capacity of 4,400 lbs. (the vehicle must be fitted with a special trailer hitch receiver by an Audi dealer).
This car is just too pretty to use as a towing vehicle but its good to know that it does offer great towing abilities.
Audi aired two new commercials showing the Q5 during the Oscars. One commercial is highlighted below.
