With a bold, Singleframe grille and sculpted headlights, the 2011 Audi Q5
quattro is unmistakably Audi. Strong fender arches define the SUV profile and

rails help the Audi Q5 quattro to maintain its class-leading 0.33 drag
coefficient, which improves fuel economy and reduce wind noise inside the cabin.
A wide track and low front and rear overhangs give the Audi Q5 quattro a
capable stance, indicating that it is a versatile vehicle, ready to take on
anything. The tailgate makes loading and unloading cargo easy. Bright LED tail
lamps draw attention to the rear, flowing along the body lines of the Audi Q5
quattro to create continuity from front to back. Subtle sport accents, like a
small rear spoiler, bold dual-exhaust ports and a multitude of available wheel
choices keep visual excitement in the small SUV.

The center console is trimmed with a handsome wood inlay and houses controls for
the Audi third-generation MMI that features available HD radio and an improved
trip computer with an all-new efficiency display for 2011. The leather-wrapped
steering wheel is attractive, thick-rimmed and comfortable to the hands, feeling
firm and sporty, yet ideal for long-distance traveling.
With a 9.2 foot
wheelbase, the 2011 Audi Q5 quattro has one of the longest footprints of any
vehicle in its segment. This length translates directly into interior room, and
with the rear seats folded down, a substantial 55 cubic feet of cargo area. This
large cargo area behind the rear seats provides an added level of functionality
beyond the luxurious appointments of the Audi Q5 quattro interior.
