5 Reasons to Buy a 2023 Q5
Why should you buy a Q5? There are plenty of good reasons to do so. But here’s five that should be enough to convince you.
1. It’s more affordable than many of its competitors, including the Porsche Macan and BMW X4.
2. A comparison of the Q5 vs Q3, also at Audi Lauzon, shows that the Q5 offers increased cargo volume and that its interior dimensions are more generous than the ones on the Q3 luxury subcompact SUV.
3. The fuel consumption of the 2023 Q5 is only 8.2 L/100 km, no matter the type of engine.
4. The Q5 provides you with a long list of in-car technologies and advanced security features that have nothing to envy the competition.
5. The 2023 Audi Q5 is recognizable everywhere it goes, because of its bold and dynamic design.
We could add a sixth reason to get a 2023 Q5. It’s possible to get a plug-in hybrid version of the Q5, the TFSI e, which is equipped with a 2.0 L engine with mild hybrid, and the Quattro all-wheel drive. You might ask: Where is the Q5’s battery? To save on interior space, it’s part of the battery pack under the floor.
If you feel more drawn to an all-electric SUV, the Audi range has the e-tron, the electric Audi, that provides you with exceptional power as well as a similar cargo volume to the Q5, the whole paired with a fuel efficiency of only 3.0 Le/100 km.
