The Audi Q5Consistently efficient

The brand claim "Vorsprung durch Technik" encapsulates the cutting-edge technology that is at the very heart of the Audi brand. Not just in the domain of sportiness, but also when it comes to a form of mobility that is future-proof. Audi consistently applies various efficiency measures within the framework of an all-embracing concept. As the developer of numerous innovations, we have made a lasting impact on automotive engineering.

  • TDI engines
  • TDI engines

    TDITDISynonymous with muscular torque delivery and outstanding efficiency: TDI. Today, TDI engines are sporty, smooth and economical.TDI : the synonym for economy, low emissions and high power yield, achieved by means of pioneering technologies such as the common rail system and piezo injectors.
  • TFSI engines

A display in the driver information systemDriver information systemThe display of the driver information system (DIS) brings together a wide range of different information items in the centre of the cockpit and permanently indicates the vehicle’s current operating status.Driver information system indicates when it is advisable to move up a gear.
  • S tronic
  • S tronic

    The S tronicS tronicFaster gearshifts, sportier driving: the S tronic combines the sporty characteristics of a manual gearbox with the advantages of an automatic.S tronic gearbox brings a significant fuel saving. In the automatic mode, its control function performs gearshifts swiftly and times them for optimised fuel consumption. The huge spread of ratios covered by S tronic allows the top gears to operate at very low engine speeds.
  • Energy recovery
  • Energy recovery

    The energy recovery system converts kinetic energy into electrical energy during phases when the car is coasting or being braked. When the car accelerates again, the battery directs the temporarily stored energy back into the vehicle, to relieve the load on the alternator and thereby save fuel.
  • LED daytime running lights
  • LED daytime running lights

    The LEDs used in daytime running lights are made to last the lifetime of the vehicle and the saving in power consumption that they offer is as much as half compared with conventional bulbs.
