The Audi range is incredibly wide. It presents cars of absolutely all classes and types, so everyone can choose a model to their taste and wallet. However, it so happens that a model from one market is to the liking of consumers in another. But there are some nuances that need to be corrected – then the car would fit just perfectly.
This is exactly what happened with the European crossover Audi Q5 Sportback, which was appreciated by Chinese motorists. They were satisfied with everything in the car, except for the short wheelbase. The manufacturer did not think long and released an elongated version addressed to consumers from the Middle Kingdom. As a result of the improvements, the crossover has grown by 89 mm and reached a length of 4778 mm. The wheelbase has increased by the same amount and is now 2908 mm. Other dimensions have also changed. So, the width of the car reaches 1892 mm (-1 mm), and in height – 1666 mm (+4 mm).
Externally, the Chinese version of the Audi crossover is practically no different from its European counterpart. The only difference lies in the design of the head optics and radiator grille. The manufacturer also changed the decor on the bumper. The interior equipment remains the same. At the same time, comfort has increased significantly, and all thanks to the increase in size. At the same time, the dimensions did not affect the luggage compartment. Its volume, as before, varies from 510 to 1480 liters, depending on the position of the seats.
The novelty is driven by the same 2.0-liter petrol turbo engine, which produces 190 hp. power in the 40 TFSI version and 252 hp. – in modification 45 TFSI. The motor is paired with a seven-speed “robot” and an all-wheel drive system. Acceleration to the first “hundred” takes 6.8 seconds. The car will go on sale before the end of 2020.
