2012 Audi Q5 Crossover Dynamic Digital Brochure
No longer do you have to request or download an Audi Q5 Crossover brochure. Our digital brochure lets you explore these innovative technologies, right now, right here.
Luxury that's had you in mind from the start.
You got here because you know what you want. For those lucky enough to avoid indecision, the Audi Q5 is exactly what is needed. Just think of its unmistakable profile. Its sporty yet sophisticated style.
Or the way its interior offers a progressive and luxurious escape from the outside world with ease. And then take in all the possibilities that the available advanced technologies on board can make a
reality, from helping avoid gridlock to providing almost limitless entertainment, to dialing in your personal comfort. Because in your Q5, your satisfaction is always the goal.
And when you consider the attention to detail like brushed aluminum decorative inlays and perfectly placed bolsters on the luxurious standard leather and Alcantara® seating surfaces, it all becomes even more irresistible. Add to all of that a collection of innovative technologies designed to keep you on top of your game, and you'll surely think the TT was tailor-made for you.
.01 - Design Lines
Notice how the dynamic line of the Q5 creates a dramatic lighting effect while also bringing the vehicle closer to the road. Its roof
line creates a sporty, coupe-like silhouette, providing just the right amount of visual muscle.
.02 – 19" Alloy Wheels Adding to the already striking exterior presence are available 19" alloy wheels designed to show off the powerful stance of the Q5.
Never shy away from a close-up.
Anyone can make a big entrance. It's the making it memorable part that really sets you apart. Take a walk around your Q5 and you'll quickly realize why this isn't a vehicle
anyone will easily forget. Its striking wheels are highlighted by the rising edges of the fenders, while the gracefully sloping roof line, accentuated by aluminum roof rails, evokes
a coupe-like presence. From the front, the Singleframe® grille takes center stage with an assertive, unmistakably Audi look, while available brilliant xenon plus headlights
and signature LED daytime running lights let everyone know this is not your typical crossover.
.03 – LED Daytime Running Light Technology
Stylish and iconic, the available LED daytime running lights enhance the unmistakable look and design of the Audi Q5, as well as its visibility to
other drivers, especially during the dawn/dusk hours.
.04 – Audi Adaptive Xenon Plus Headl ights Swiveling up to 15 degrees, the available Audi adaptive xenon plus headlights direct light based on steering wheel input so that you can easily track the road ahead. When driving straight, the headlights disperse light over a wide area while also casting light farther down the road on the passenger's side to help provide better long-range visibility.
There's a reason we think losing weight is the smart move.
Considering the racing DNA in every Audi, it should come as no surprise that we went to great lengths to reduce weight when designing the Q5. But there is an even greater
benefit to a reduction in weight beyond just improved handling. By using aluminum in such components as the hood, tailgate, wheels and suspension, we shed a significant
amount of unwanted weight, helping to diminish the load on the engine and thus increasing overall efficiency.1
.05 – Weight-saving Aluminum
Aluminum makes for a structurally sound vehicle with minimal gains in weight. And in no place is this more evident than in the
all-aluminum tailgate. It weighs markedly less than a typical steel tailgate while helping provide exceptional structural integrity.

In here, it's all about you.
Striking a perfect balance between luxury and style is no easy task, but the Q5 seems to do it with relative ease. The interior
layout is driver-oriented, with every control, button and gauge placed with convenience in mind. Look around and you'll also
notice the high-quality materials and fine craftsmanship that envelop every square inch. From the standard Walnut Wood inlays
to the carefully stitched leather seating surfaces, to the available Brushed Aluminum inlays, it all comes together to create an
interior that exudes character. And when it comes time to find your favorite song or next destination, count on the available
Audi MMI® Navigation plus to put it all right at your fingertips.1
.06 – Wood Inlays
Speaking to the detail and craftsmanship of the Q5 are premium genuine wood inlays. They are selected, crafted and
matched to the color of the instrument panel and leather seating surfaces to compensate for variations in texture and reflectivity.
1 See Infotainment/Technology section of Specifications for important information regarding the Audi MMI® Navigation plus system.
Affording options even when you think you're out of them.
Think of it this way, you may never run out of ways to enjoy your Q5. Twelve-way, power-adjustable
front seats give you almost unlimited options when it comes to personal comfort, while sliding
and reclining rear seats make sure your passengers are included in this luxurious experience.
And just try to exhaust the possible configurations afforded by the 40/20/40 split folding rear
seats. We'll go out on a limb and say you can't.
.07 – Adjustable Rear Seats
An adjustable rear bench enables the rear seats to recline 10°, move forward or back 3.9 inches and fold completely flat, allowing
for flexible cargo configurations and additional rear leg room when needed.
.08 – 12-way Power Front Seats Perfect comfort for both the driver and front passenger are just a touch of a button away with the standard 12-way power front seats.
There are times you know the world is yours.
For us, the perfect drive is when we feel a cool breeze as the sunlight fills the cabin. To Audi, it's about enjoying every last mile. That's why, in the
Q5, we've created things like the available panoramic sunroof. It creates a unique, light-filled interior that warms while it calms. We've also included
a three-zone automatic climate control system that helps deliver personalized comfort to the driver as well as to both the front and rear passengers.
And when it comes time to pick up that new armoire, you'll rest easy knowing you have plenty of space to work with.
.09 – Panoramic Sunroof
The available two-panel panoramic sunroof offers both the front and rear passengers an unobstructed view overhead while flooding the
cabin with natural light. And when you decide you need to say goodbye to the sun, a power sunshade is there to make it an easy task.
.10 – Three-zone Automatic Climate Control With three distinct climate zones, the driver, front passenger and rear passenger can set their perfect level of heating or cooling with a simple twist of a dial on the center console.
.11 – Power Tailgate Seamlessly integrated into the rear design, the available power tailgate on the Q5 gives you programmable end points so you can adjust the opening to the height you choose—a big help in tight spaces.
That's my road and I'm sticking to it.
Just choose the road, then let the legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system worry about the
rest. With the ability to send power to either the front or rear axles, depending on the conditions, you
can count on solid grip in almost any condition Mother Nature might throw at you. And even when
all-weather confidence isn't required, Audi quattro® helps deliver spirited handling by providing a
sports car-like 40:60 rear-biased torque split for better steering feel and balance through corners.
.12 – Audi quattro® All-wheel Drive
The engineering behind the signature Audi quattro® all-wheel drive is based around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque to where it's needed. For the
driver, that means Audi quattro® is adjusting power between the front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, from 40:60 rear-biased in most conditions to other ratio variations
in more challenging ones, helping to ensure that torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists for improved control.
Easily stays ahead of the curve.
You have better things to think about than what the road is doing underneath you. So go ahead. Trust in the advanced
driving systems your Q5 offers and get back to enjoying what really counts: the drive. With advanced features like asymmetric
torque split, you'll benefit from improved traction and handling in most situations. Add in your ability to adjust the handling
characteristics with the available Audi drive select system, and it starts to seem like an unfair match. And we're sure you're OK with that.
You may feel particularly close to your drive.
.13 – Asymmetric Torque Split
The torque-sensing system provides 40:60 split rear-biased torque distribution in most driving conditions,
resulting in agile handling and enhanced driving stability.
.14 – Audi Drive Select With a number of potential vehicle handling and performance combinations, the available advanced Audi drive select system lets you tailor the ride of the Q5 to your liking. Each mode manages the dynamic steering, suspension, transmission shift characteristics and throttle response for near seamless control.
– comfort mode (peaceful)
Perfect for city streets, this setting adds optimized steering and suspension to help provide a smoother drive.
– auto mode (balanced)
The best of both worlds dialed to the optimal settings for a nearly perfect combination of comfort and responsiveness.
– dynamic mode (fun)
More direct steering, tighter suspension and a more sensitive throttle give this setting an aggressive tilt.
– individual mode (customized)
Take the turn your way—this mode allows you to adjust the suspension, steering, throttle and transmission upshifts to your style.
A smooth transition should never be in question.
A lot can be said about making a smooth transition. But nowhere is this more apparent than in an automobile. A rough transition between gears is an
unpleasant experience that hurts both performance and efficiency. Cue the Tiptronic® transmission. Engineered to make seamless and seemingly instantaneous gear shifts,
it says goodbye to shift shock and welcomes a new level of smooth acceleration and control.
It's as much about your pulse rate as our power.
If your Q5 had a beating heart this would be it. Whether you choose the acclaimed 2.0 TFSI® engine that delivers impressive torque and
punchy off-the-line acceleration while still returning respectable fuel economy or the potent 3.2 FSI® engine that maintains the Audi commitment
to performance with its 270 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, your pulse will surely race.1,2
.15 – Eight-speed Tiptronic® Transmission (2.0T)
Whether you choose manual mode for nimble shifting or automatic mode for smoother acceleration, this innovative transmission is optimized for
power and, in the upper range, fuel economy.1
.16 – Six-speed Tiptronic® Transmission (3.2) The refined six-speed Tiptronic® transmission helps deliver smooth acceleration and excellent power while still providing impressive efficiency.1
.17 – 3.2 FSI Engine Maintaining the Audi commitment to performance, the silky-smooth, fuel-efficient and responsive 3.2-liter V6 engine helps deliver impressive performance through a combination of FSI direct injection and the valvelift system.1
.18 – 2.0 TFSI Turbocharged Engine Years ahead of the competition, the 2.0 TFSI engine gains all its power and efficiency from advanced technologies like direct injection and variable valve timing. Add in a turbocharger, and you get six-cylinder-like performance with four-cylinder efficiency.1
.19 – Valvelift System By intelligently varying the valvelift duration in response to engine load and power needs, the valvelift system results in smooth power buildup, quicker throttle response and significant fuel-efficiency gains.1
1 20 city/27 highway/22 combined mpg (2012 Q5 2.0T with eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission); 18 city/23 highway/20 combined mpg (2012 Q5 3.2 with six-speed Tiptronic® automatic
transmission). EPA estimates. Your mileage will vary. 2 Always obey local speed and traffic laws.
Not afraid to flash a little muscle.
If it's the performance you really want to play up, show them a Q5 in the available Audi S line® plus Package.
It features powerful exterior additions, like more aggressive front and rear valances, black-optic exterior
appearance and titanium-finish 20" alloy wheels, that hint at its sports car DNA, as well as an Audi S line
three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles that helps you attack every curve.
.20 – Audi Singleframe® Grille
Leaving no doubt as to who is coming at them in the rearview mirror, the Audi Singleframe grille is all about making a
statement. And that statement is made even bolder in the available Audi S line plus Package's gloss-black grille surround.
.21 – Brushed Aluminum Inlay When you are in a Q5 equipped with the Audi S line Package, you know it. Glance around, and you'll notice the standard Brushed Aluminum inlays that grace the instrument panel and beltline for a modern, sporty look.
Consider it your passport to a more connected existence.
With the fast-paced nature of today’s world, you’ll be glad to know that when you get
in your Q5, it doesn’t have to stop—or even slow down. The available intuitive Audi Multi
Media Interface gives you easy access to everything from your phone book to the audio
system, to the available navigation system, so you can focus more on driving and less
on distractions. Ensuring that your time on the road is always time well spent.
.22 – Audi MMI® Navigation Plus
The available Audi MMI® Navigation plus features simple, intuitive inputs—via voice, buttons or center controller—to connect you to your destination.1
.23 – SiriusXM Traffic Access traffic information on your route to help navigate around congestion.
.24 – Bluetooth® Phone Preparation Helping you stay connected while allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel.
.25 – Media Access SiriusXM Satellite Radio, your iPod® or the CD player with a quick scroll through a menu.

How to engineer harmony.
What could be better than seeing your favorite band play live? Listening to your favorite band playing live while you enjoy all the luxurious comforts of your Q5. And to make
sure you never run out of listening options, HD Radio™ and SiriusXM Satellite Radio are available to keep you entertained mile after mile. Basically, if it's going to make your experience
more pleasurable, we've made a point to include it.
.27 – HD Radio™ Technology
Get crystal-clear digital sound with available HD Radio™ Technology, featuring more than 1,000 stations and seemingly endless music, sports and talk options.
.28 – SiriusXM Satellite Radio With over 180 channels and coast-to-coast coverage, you could drive for days and never come close to running out of entertainment.1
.29 – Secure Digital (SD) Card Slots In addition to the 10 GB of reserved music space on the hard drive, the Audi MMI® Navigation plus system features two SD card slots, for even greater storage capacity.
.30 – Multichannel Amplification It may have taken hundreds of hours of sound tuning, but Bang & Olufsen® transformed the Q5 into a personal sound stage that is supported by proprietary True Image™ technology. The multichannel amplification turns 2-channel stereo signals into perfect 7.1-channel surround sound, distributing both channels to all loudspeakers in the car—each with its own particular delay and level—to surround you with pure sound.
1 See back cover for important information regarding required SiriusXM subscriptions.
It's time you hear the truth.
Dedicated to the idea of "honest music reproduction," the available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System is a sound engineer's dream. Through a 505-watt,
14-speaker system, Bang & Olufsen® is set on music reaching your ears by transcending the limits of audio technology and designing systems for
the human heart as much as for the human ear.
the human ear
Think of your ear as the sound collector. While the brain processes the auditory data in the way you think of as "hearing,"
the ear is where the sound waves and pressure enter before being passed on by nerve impulses to the brain. Audi and Bang & Olufsen® design their
soundstage with this vital gateway in mind—and work tirelessly to discover the best ways to engage it.
Keeping an eye out, even when you're not.
It doesn't take much for a little mistake to turn into a much bigger one. Good thing we've come up with a suite of available
driver assistance technologies that can help you avoid a collision long before it ever comes to fruition. Whether it's Audi side assist
that uses sensors to help warn you of approaching cars in your blind spot or Audi adaptive cruise control that helps keep
you at a comfortable distance from the car in front of you, it's all about helping you and your passengers negotiate the road. And
if a collision is unavoidable, you can be confident that the six standard airbags will help shield you from harm.1
.31 – Audi Side Assist
Active at speeds over 19 mph, available Audi side assist helps monitor blind spots and fast-approaching vehicles at a range
of 150 ft from the rear. When a vehicle is present within the monitored area, the system aids in alerting you via LED lights in
the exterior mirrors.
.32 – ESC and ABS Computerized technology that works in perfect sync with the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps minimize any loss of stability by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and reducing throttle input to counter oversteer or understeer when the vehicle needs it.
.33 – Six Standard Airbags With six standard airbags that include front-impact, front side and side curtain airbags for both driver and passengers and available rear side airbags for an available airbag total of up to eight, you'll feel practically surrounded.1 And that's a good thing.
.34 – Audi Adaptive Cruise Control Available adaptive cruise control on the Audi Q5 helps the driver maintain a safe distance between vehicles, as its longrange radar measures the distance to the vehicle ahead, sends its data to a computer that weighs the information against velocity and other road variables, and applies the brakes as necessary. Once the road is clear to cruise, the Q5 effortlessly accelerates back to its desired speed.
1 Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all crash circumstances. Always use safety belts and seat children
only in the rear, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. 2 This is a dramatization and does not depict what
will happen in a collision. All bags will not inflate in real-world collisions, and if multiple bags do deploy they will be in various stages
of inflating/deflating and will never all be inflated at the same time.
Proving an exit can be just as dramatic as an entrance.
Just in case someone didn't catch a glimpse of its striking front end or graceful side profile, the Q5 offers one last
powerful takeaway: the signature LED taillight technology that is as brilliant as it is unmistakably Audi. It all
adds up to a truly memorable combination that puts this crossover in a class of its own.
.35 – LED Taillight Technology
Bright and sleek, these light-emitting diode rear lights help convey crucial information—that you are braking—faster
then traditional taillights, giving the drivers behind you more time to react.
Imagine a cherry on top of your sundae. Sweet, right? Now imagine a cherry that helps
protect your Q5 from the elements. Or carries your bikes for a serious weekend on the
trails. Or makes heads turn as you drive by. Audi Genuine Accessories are the little
extras that make your Audi even sweeter. Designed by the same visionaries who designed
your vehicle, all accessories feature a tailored fit and the expert craftsmanship you'd
expect from Audi. They are also backed by the 4-year/50,000-mile Audi New Vehicle Limited
Warranty or the accessory's 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty, whichever extends
longer from the accessory purchase date.1
