A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the Q5 producing 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque on 17.4 pounds of boost.

While the previous model used an eight-speed automatic transmission, the new Q5 swaps in a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with excellent shift speeds and a responsive manual shift function.

The Q5's Quattro all-wheel-drive system can decouple the rear axle when not needed to help improve efficiency. When extra grip is needed, the system automatically reengages the rear axle on the fly.

While adaptive dampers and air suspension are available in other markets, US-bound Q5s will only offer the adaptive dampers with steel coil springs.

Like the TT, A4 and Q7, the Q5 is available with Audi's Virtual Cockpit that uses a high-resolution 12.3-inch screen to replace the traditional gauge cluster.
