Audi Q5 photos with no sticky tape disguises

After quite lots of photos of the Q5, Audi`s all-new baby SUV, appearing with many sticky tape disguises, the no-nonsense Germans from Auto Bild have captured this new vehicle in the flesh, completely uncovered.

Audi Q5 will be joining Audi Q7 as the brand`s second model from Audi in the sport utility vehicle (SUV) department. ‘The Audi Q5 will be an overtly sporty vehicle that will add an important product to the Audi model range. The Audi Q5 will take us a big step closer to vehicle sales of 1.4 million per year, a target that we have set ourselves for 2015` said Winterkorn.

The Quattro all-wheel-drive system of Q5 has a 40/60 percent front/rear torque bias. It`s likely the engines include direct-injection 2.0-liter four and V-6 3.2-liter. The V-8 4.2-liter could be powering an S-line variant. A six-speed manual or a DSG seven-speed do the shifting.

In order to use V-8 engines, considered essential for the market in U.S., the engines in the SUV will not be mounted transversely, but lengthwise.
