2011 Audi Q5 Review and Price

About 2011 Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 series has disappointed and pleased a few reviewers and consumers over the past few years. Hence, the manufacturers are looking to draw out a single opinion of their new release – the 2011 Audi Q5 – which is obviously to deliver something that all consumers would be happy to purchase. Looks like consumers are finally getting what they wish for, so make sure to read more from the review below to find out how they were able to achieve that.

2011 Audi Q7

The 2011 Audi Q5 is expected to make its debut in late 2010. Thus, interested buyers should have enough time to contemplate on whether it is worth buying for. Starting off with the vehicle exterior, there are no definite information or photos leaked out for this year’s Q5 edition that would provide a glimpse as to how this new SUV will look like. But since the previous releases of Q5 have not had any major styling revisions, do not expect it on this one.

Inside the 2011 Audi Q5 though, the cabin design has been revised and many auto reviewers are hoping that the same goes with the back seat as well, especially given the issues with the current seating configuration. However, you will find a decent amount of standard interior features such as tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, eight-way power front seats, 10-speaker stereo system, and tri-zone automatic climate control, among other things.

The engine equipped into the 2011 Audi Q5 is a 3.2-liter V6 engine that can produce up to 270 maximum horsepower. However, consumers can also get hybrid and diesel engine options. The acceleration capacity for the vehicle model is estimated to go from zero to 60 mph in approximately 7.2 seconds, which is quite impressive for an SUV. It is built with a six-speed automatic transmission but there are no known changes on the suspension as of this writing.

For practical consumers, the fuel economy ratings for this vehicle is not yet known. But if the predecessor’s performance were to be based on, then you can expect it to be somewhere around 18 and 23 mpg for the city and highway, respectively. Standard safety features available for the 2011 edition include side-curtain airbags, front-side airbags, stability control, and traction control.

Pro’s of 2011 Audi Q5

*Impressive fuel economy rating;

*Efficient acceleration;

*Variety of safety features;

*Improved handling and braking;

*Reasonable pricing.

Con’s of 2011 Audi Q5

*The vehicle has not been tested fully yet, so it has yet to be determined if the actual road test will deliver the specifications detailed on paper.

Pricing Details

As of now, Audi has not issued a press release to detail the pricing information for the 2011 Audi Q5. But this gas-powered model is not expected to be priced too far away from its predecessors. The price range is therefore estimated to start at around $38,000.

The Bottom Line

The 2011 Audi Q5 will be aiming to address the previous issues cited from the vehicle series. But if the initial information did prove to apply for the release of the new model, then consumers are the ones who will benefit most from these changes to ensure quality ride that does not break your bank.

    The other cars from Audi are quite impressive, especially the A5 and Q7. The Q5 doesn’t carries such attractions like those.
