Audi Philippines announced recently that it is now fitting 2020 models of the Q5 Prestige luxury SUV with a standard Adaptive Air Suspension System with Damper Control and Ride Height, a high-tech feature which used to be fitted on select Q5 variants only, and which allows the driver to set the vehicle’s ideal suspension damping and ride height for every driving situation.
The new Audi Q5 Prestige is now also equipped with Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive, plus an array of infotainment and assistance systems, making it even more feature- and value-packed.
Two highly refined and efficient 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engines are available in the 2020 Audi Q5 Prestige. One is the gasoline 2.0L TFSI engine which, when equipped with direct fuel injection, produces 250hp and 370Nm of torque. It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission.
The other is the diesel 2.0L TDI engine with a common-rail injection system. It outputs 190hp and 400Nm of torque. Also bolted to this engine is the seven-speed dual clutch S tronic transmission.
Making the new Audi Q5 Prestige unmistakable as an Audi are its distinct curves, strongly undercut shoulder line, LED headlights and sculpturally flared Singleframe grille. The model also has dynamic turn signals on its taillights. Viewed from the side, flowing lines create the vehicle’s sporty character while its roofline, crowned by flat roof rails, descends gracefully toward the rear. The low greenhouse tapers inward and the D-pillars are angled similar to a coupé’s. Finishing the look are 20-inch Audi Sport cast aluminum wheels.
Inside the 2020 Audi Q5 Prestige are leather Comfort Seats, which have sharply contoured side bolsters, power adjustments for the driver’s seat (or both front seats), a memory function and pneumatic lumbar support. A distinctive strip of aluminum-look trim frames the upper zone of the dashboard, running across the full width of the instrument panel to reinforce the feeling of generous space. The model’s steering wheel has been redesigned and features multifunction buttons and paddle shifters.
The Audi virtual cockpit presents brilliant graphics on its high-resolution 12.3-inch screen. It offers the driver a choice of two views; a classic view with large round instruments and a mode in which the navigation map or lists dominate.
The MMI terminal on the center console acts as the main control element. In the top infotainment system, one can experience the MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and an 8.3-inch display, as well as a touchpad. The system recognizes handwritten entries and gestures. It is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2020 Audi Q5 Prestige continues to enable handling that is both sporty and extremely comfortable, thanks to the Adaptive Air Suspension System with Damper Control and Ride Height.
Adding to the model’s ride comfort and safety is the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system that is optimized for efficiency. It displays no discernible difference to permanent systems in terms of traction and driving dynamics. The feature works by instantaneously responding and sending power to the wheel that has the best traction available.
The 2020 Audi Q5 Prestige has been awarded the maximum five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Program, or Euro NCAP, for its performance in the areas of occupant protection, child safety and pedestrian protection. Included among the vehicle’s safety features are a rear-view camera, parking aid plus and adaptive cruise control. The model has also won the “Golden Steering Wheel” in the “Large SUV” category of leading German automotive trade magazine Auto Bild.
