◾With an EPA-estimated 25-mpg city/highway combined fuel economy rating, the 2018 Q5 achieves a +3 mpg improvement over its predecessor, the 2017 Q5

◾Offering exceptional driving dynamics and efficiency, coupled with the benchmark infotainment and connectivity systems, the 2018 Audi Q5 arrives in dealer showrooms this month

HERNDON, Virginia, March 29, 2017 – With a competitive segment-leading, EPA-estimated 25-mpg combined fuel economy rating, the 2018 Audi Q5 offers exceptional driving dynamics, performance and efficiency, and is arriving in dealer showrooms this month.

Featuring a new generation of quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology, that helps to optimize performance and efficiency, the Q5 achieves EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 23 mpg city and 25 mpg combined, a +3 mpg improvement over its predecessor model. No other luxury SUV in its competitive segment offers higher EPA-estimated city or combined mileage.

quattro® with ultra® technology

The new quattro® all-wheel drive system with ultra® technology is the most radical evolution of quattro since its introduction in the early 1980's on the Audi Quattro Coupe. Created by Audi engineers, quattro® with ultra® technology utilizes an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch along with a decoupling rear axle differential to achieve fully variable torque distribution. This allows for intelligent, proactive control of the all-wheel drive system to help predictively modify the torque application as the driver demands or the road conditions require.

Unlike other on-demand all-wheel drive systems that can take up to two seconds to fully engage, quattro with ultra technology works electromechanically, and can be fully engaged in under 250 milliseconds. A series of pins, levers and springs engage and disengage a unique front-multi plate clutch, to divide torque between the front and rear as needed, while a rear dog leg clutch connects and disconnects the prop shaft and rear differential for maximum efficiency.

In addition, sensors monitor situations all over the car, such as wheel slip, cornering speed and engine torque. All of this data is processed by a computer that is running simulations every 10 milliseconds, estimating what traction will be like 500 milliseconds into the future. When the system expects that torque will exceed available traction, the system engages quattro in half the time before it is even needed, with no perceptible difference from a traditional all-wheel-drive system.
