2012/2013 Audi Q5 in Burlingame - Specs, Photos & Inventory


Performance
quattro® All-wheel Drive
    Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don't perform that way, either. quattro is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it's needed. This means quattro is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.
   
Innovative Braking System
    Audi has implemented a number of ingenious features to help maximize braking effectiveness. In wet conditions, the brake disc wiping system gently pulses the brakes to help dissipate water buildup. Keeping the discs as dry as possible helps promote the most effective braking. Additionally, the brake assist system is able to detect an attempt at full braking and apply full stopping power when required. The advantage is that braking distance is significantly reduced.
   
Five-link Front Suspension and Trapezoidal-link Rear Suspension
    With the finely tuned front-suspension components secured to the subframe, the five-link front suspension increases ride quality by isolating road harshness and vibration from the cabin. The use of weightsaving aluminum for critical components helps reduce unsprung mass at each wheel, allowing the suspension to respond more rapidly. Together with the Independent trapezoidal-link rear suspension with rigid subframe and stabilizer bar, the Q5 delivers a driving experience that is extremely responsive, smooth and predictable. It is handling that has become an Audi hallmark.
   
Audi Valvelift System
    Audi valvelift system helps elevate the performance characteristics of variable valve timing. The result is smooth power buildup, instantaneous throttle response and up to a 7 percent reduction in fuel consumption. Audi valvelift system intelligently varies the lift and duration of engine exhaust valves in response to engine load and power needs. Optimizing air management, Audi valvelift system helps create maximum torque across a broad range of RPM without sacrificing efficiency.

Audi drive select
    With 27 available vehicle handling and performance combinations, Audi drive select is another example of Audi progressive technology. Whether you prefer the smooth, luxurious ride of Comfort mode or the more direct and firmer responses of Dynamic mode, Audi drive select allows you to tailor the vehicle to your liking.
    Beginning with three preset vehicle configurations, Audi drive select manages the adaptive suspension, dynamic steering, transmission shift characteristics and throttle response according to the selected mode: Comfort, Automatic or Dynamic. Adding to the versatility of Audi drive select, the Individual mode manages 27 personalized variations, essentially allowing the driver to configure the vehicle driving dynamics according to his or her precise preferences.

Responsive Servotronic® Steering
    Servotronic® is speed-dependent power steering in which the amount of power assist provided is dictated by road speed, providing even more comfort and convenience for the driver. The amount of power assist is greatest at low speeds, making it easier to maneuver the car. At higher speeds, an electronic-sensing system gradually reduces the level of power assist, creating a tighter, more dynamic steering feel.
    To further enhance handling and ride comfort, significant attention to detail has been paid to suppressing vibrations at the attachment points along the steering column. The result is a nearly 100 percent reduction in steering wheel vibration, offering the driver smoothness at virtually any speed.
   
FSI® Direct Injection
    Audi Fuel Stratified Injection, or FSI®, offers the benefits of increased performance and fuel efficiency. FSI direct injection delivers a precise amount of fuel directly into the engine cylinders as opposed to the engine intake runners. This advanced process helps ensure a more complete combustion, thereby diminishing waste and increasing power.
    By combining FSI and forced induction, such as a turbocharger, the 2.0T engine employs a variation of FSI called TFSI®. The principle and benefits are identical. TFSI equipped engines take advantage of significantly higher compression ratios and cylinder pressure, thus fully atomizing fuel and optimizing boost response. The compressor condenses the air flowing into the engine, allowing more air into the cylinder and therefore creating more power from each ignition. A forced induction engine produces greater power than a similar engine without it, significantly improving the engine's power-to-weight ratio.
   
Audi Hill descent control
    Hill descent assist automatically maintains the speed set by the driver on steep descents by controlling engine speed and brakes. The result is a significant increase in comfort and stability when descending hills, no matter the road conditions. Hill descent control is conveniently activated and deactivated using a separate switch.

Safety
 ESC
    The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep the vehicle traveling in its intended direction by utilizing ABS, the traction control of ASR and the electronic brake force distribution of EBD. Specifically, when ESC detects loss of traction, it automatically adjusts the throttle and applies the brakes to help "steer" the vehicle where you intend to go. Braking is automatically applied to each wheel: at the outer front wheel to mitigate oversteer, or the inner rear wheel to mitigate understeer.

Innovative Braking System
    Audi has implemented a number of ingenious features to help maximize braking effectiveness. In wet conditions, the brake disc wiping system gently pulses the brakes to help dissipate water buildup. Keeping the discs as dry as possible helps promote the most effective braking.
