CNET's Roadshow Previews the All-New 2018 Audi Q5: Redesigned for the (Off)Road Ahead

The all-new 2018 Audi Q5 is a thoroughly reimagined version of what has become Audi's best-selling luxury crossover, with outstanding results - according to CNET's Roadshow's preview of the new Q5. Indeed the Q5 has been the best-selling luxury crossover in the world for several years running, and the new 2018 edition is likely to further strengthen its position. Click "play" in the clip below for further details from the Paris Auto Show.

The new Q5 has been redesigned from the ground up. Roadshow contributing writer Jon Wong had the opportunity to test the Q5 is desert around beachside Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, and found the new Q5 to have a smooth ride, terrific high-speed stability and an exceptionally quiet cabin, regardless of the road (or non-road) conditions.

From the outside, the new Q5 looks trimmer, and indeed has shed some weight for the new model year. It also features a distinctive, wider Singleframe grille and 3D LED headlights. The Q5 also features a newly-redesigned Quattro all-wheel drive system, which decouples the rear axle when not needed for improved fuel efficiency. This compact luxury SUV is nicely powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque and takes the Q5 from 0-60 mph in just 5.9 seconds.
