Benefits of Driving a 2013 Audi Q5 Sport Utility Crossover

With the 2.0 TFSI engine and 8-speed automatic, the 2013 Audi Q5 performs similarly to its V6-equipped big brother while being much more fuel-efficient. The standard Q5 has an EPA highway rating of 27 mpg. The Q5 has the longest wheelbase in its class and that gives it an especially smooth, settled ride. With the new supercharged 3.0L V6, the Q5 has an excellent towing capacity as well. The Q5's rear-biased quattro all-wheel drive system brings more driving enjoyment than is typical for enthusiasts and those who might rather be driving a sport sedan, while the interior has just as much versatility and flexibility as other utility vehicles in this class. Add to the mix a new 2.0L hybrid, and the appeal of the 2013 Audi Q5 is hard to ignore.

What's new for 2013?

The Audi Q5 receives some minor updates inside and out for 2013. For starters, the front grille has been tweaked, as have the Q5 wheel options. Three new interior colors and upholstery choices are available, while the steering wheel has also been updated. The biggest changes come in the engine bay. The turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder carries over, while a 272-hp supercharged 3.0L V6 replaces the naturally aspirated 3.2L V6. A hybrid drivetrain is also new, which utilizes the Q5's standard 2.0L turbo and an electric motor to produce 245 hp and 354-ft-lb of torque. EPA estimates peg the hybrid's return at 24 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. All Q5s now benefit from an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Q5 hybrid starts at $51,795.

Model Review

The 2013 Audi Q5 is offered with two different engines. A 211-horsepower, 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a new supercharged 272-hp, 3.0L V6. Both are mated to an 8-speed Titronic automatic transmission, and both feature Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system, which sends about 60 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels under most driving conditions; on slippery surfaces or for better stability, the system will reapportion torque as needed. The 2.0L also helps to power the new hybrid model, and is paired with an electric motor. Together, the system is capable of an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
