Premium vs. Premium Plus: Performance Specs

The Audi Q5 Premium and Premium Plus are nearly identical under the hood. Both are powered by a 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® direct-injection engine that generates an impressive 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

With this kind of power and pep, you'll get to enjoy an acceleration speed of 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.9 seconds. This much power also enables both the Premium and the Premiums Plus to be able to tow up to 4,400 pounds of trailer weight.

Both models are also equipped with a 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is designed to maximize efficiency. In either trim, you'll enjoy an EPA-estimated 22 city/27 highway MPG.1

Also working with this engine is a standard quattro® all-wheel drive system with ultra® technology. This intuitive drivetrain monitors your driving conditions and automatically adjusts its torque distribution in order to maximize your grip on the road.

Premium vs Premium Plus: Exterior Design

Both models are also virtually the same to the naked eye with all-season tires, LED taillights, and heated windshield washer nozzles. You'll also be able to count on automatic windshield wipers and headlights thanks to the rain and light sensors on both of these trims.

The main difference between the exteriors of the Audi Q5 Premium and the Premium Plus is the Premium Plus's memory-adjustable exterior mirrors. This feature makes switching between drivers easy without having to worry about taking time out of your schedule to adjust all your mirrors.

Premium vs Premium Plus: Interior Features

The 2019 Audi Q5 Premium and Premium Plus are identical when it comes to the dimensions of the interior. Both trim levels offer more than enough wiggle room for up to five passengers as you'll see by the interior dimensions below:

On top of all this space you'll get for you and all of your passengers inside these trim levels, you'll also get plenty of cargo space. Both trims offer 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats and 53.1 total cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded.

The similarities of the interiors of these trims doesn't stop there, though. Both offers 40/20/40 split folding rear seats, 8-way power front seats, leather seating surfaces, and a three-zone automatic climate control system.

However, as the higher trim level, the Premium Plus does offer a few extra features, including Driver Seat Memory, standard heated front seats, and paddle shifters for easier-than-ever shifting.

Premium vs Premium Plus: Advanced Technology

On top of all the comfort and space you'll have inside the Audi Q5 Premium and the Audi Q5 Premium Plus, you'll also have a handful of top-of-the-line technology features. Inside both trim levels, you'll find a 7-inch MMI® infotainment display and an Audi smartphone interface.

With two screens, you'll be able to multitask with turn-by-turn navigation on one while you stay in the loop with your favorite smartphone apps via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ with the other.

Things begin to differ a bit between the Premium and the Premium Plus when it comes to active safety. The Premium Plus offers a few extra safety features, including Audi side assist, Audi pre sense® rear with rear cross traffic assist, and vehicle exit assist.

The latter feature monitors the sides of your vehicle when you come to a stop for oncoming vehicles and cyclists. If one is detected, this feature will alert you using illuminated LED lights.

These features come on top of the safety features it shares with the Premium, which are Audi pre sense® basic and Audi pre sense® city. Count on these features in either trim to help prevent collisions and prepare for them if need be by closing the windows and pretensioning the front safety belts.
