Audi grows its Q family
SUVs are well and truly having a moment right now. Perfect for pretty much anything from family trips to off-road adventures and cross-country cohorts, the SUV is certainly in high demand – and it’s safe to say it’s here to stay. With global car manufacturers competing for their SUVs to take the top-title, there’s none more committed to creating a state-of-the-art, practical, aesthetically pleasing SUV than Audi.
The German manufacturer already has seven SUVs under its (seat) belt – Q2, Q3, SQ5, Q7, Q7 e-tron, SQ7 and the all-new Audi Q5. Although it’s been around for a while now, the Q5 has undergone an upgrade – making it more spacious, more connected and more efficient, with more suspension options.
Demanding attention, the body of the Q5 is simply stunning; with a wide, taut stance, the front of the vehicle shows off a 3D style radiator grille and a set of very prominent wheel arches – features which place it very firmly in the Q family of Audis. The inside of the Q5 can only be described as indulgent; with an all-new wrap around interior which has increased the inside space of the can, as well as providing state-of-the-art acoustics. Optional ambient lighting – in 30 different colours – is also included inside the Q5, creating the perfect driving atmosphere for many occasions. Inside the boot, you’ll find 550 litres of space, and a further 1000 litres of space with the rear seats folded down.
Audi has recently announced that it will be releasing two new models in the Q range; the Q8 crossover SUV, and the Q4 compact utility vehicle. The manufacturer announced the two new vehicles earlier this month, stating that the production of the Q8 will begin in Bratislava in 2018, and the first Q4 will roll off the assembly line in Gyor, Hungary in 2019. The brand’s latest announcements increase its competitiveness in the SUV sector, with the Q8 opening a new segment for top-end models.
Professor Dr. Hubert Waltl, Audi’s board of management member for production and logistics, commented on the two new Q models, “We will integrate two completely new Q models into the existing production and thus increase our competitiveness in an extremely important segment.”
The brand new Q8 alongside being spacious and stylishly designed also offers the latest assistance and infotainment technology. The Audi Q4 sees the German brand moving into the compact utility vehicle segment; whilst retaining its coupe style silhouette.
