The 2020 Audi Q5 is one remarkable vehicle. As a luxury crossover, this model offers the best of both worlds with a powerful and efficient powertrain like that of a sedan, as well as a spacious and versatile interior like an SUV. This is far from all this vehicle has to offer, though.

Shoppers in the areas of Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Irving should read on to see what this incredible crossover has to offer when it comes to design, performance, technology, and safety!

Exterior Dimensions Specs

The 2020 Audi Q5 is categorized as a compact luxury SUV, meaning it's the perfect halfway point between a sedan and a full-size SUV with the following exterior dimensions:

  • Wheelbase: 111.0 inches
  • Length: 183.6 - 184.4 inches
  • Width with/without Mirrors: 74.5 inches/84.3 inches
  • Height: 65.3 inches
  • Curb Weight: 4,045 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: 8.0 - 8.2 inches

With these dimensions, you'll be able to take on all types of terrain--compared to other SUVs--thanks to this model's lighter weight and higher ground clearance.

The exterior of this model also sports an array of distinctive stylistic designs that are meant to draw the eye, no matter where you're going. The Singleframe® front grille is simple, yet classic with strong lines that really highlight the powerful and sleek Xenon plus headlights.

The Audi Q5 can also be equipped with an available panoramic sunroof. Opt for this sunroof to truly absorb your surroundings, or go for a regular roof that can be equipped with a stylish and handy roof rack for carting ski equipment, luggage, and more without sacrificing interior passenger space.

Interior Dimensions Specs

Inside the Q5 you'll have five spacious seats that give you and your passengers more than enough room to spread out and get comfortable with the following passenger area dimensions:


Front-Row Seats

Second-Row Seats


41.7 inches

39.3 inches

Headroom with Sunroof

40.2 inches

37.7 inches


41.0 inches

37.8 inches

Shoulder Room

57.7 inches

56.5 inches

On top of all the space for you and your passengers, you'll also get plenty of room for all your cargo items. With all five seats in place, you'll have 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats. This is plenty of room for groceries, backpacks, sports equipment, and more.

For even more cargo space, fold down the three second-row seats and you'll enjoy 53.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo space in the Audi Q5. Pack in boxes for moving, larger furniture items, or a weekend's worth of camping supplies.

One of the best parts of the Q5's cabin is the 40/20/40 folding capabilities of the rear seatbacks. Fold down one, two, or all three of the rear seats. Since each seat has its own folding system, each one can be folded individually, even the middle rear seat.

Make packing your cargo even easier--equip this model with the available hands-free power tailgate. This available feature makes it possible to access the trunk space without setting your things down or fishing your keys out of your pocket. Simply swipe your foot under the rear bumper, and the liftgate with rise automatically.

Performance Specifications

The 2020 Audi Q5 gives you two powertrain options to choose from. Standardly leading the way in this model is a high-powered 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® 4-cylinder engine.

This engine comes direct-injected, making it possible to generate  incredible power. Without any additional equipment required, this engine generates a whopping 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

This engine comes paired to a 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission, designed to make the most of every single gear shift.

You can also opt for a second available engine: a 55 TFSI® e Plug-in hybrid powertrain. This powertrain combines the efforts of the standard 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine with a 14.1 kWh battery, and pumps out an impressive 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Another piece of equipment you'll get with this model is Audi drive select. This system comes with five driver-selectable modes that automatically adjust steering, transmission shift, throttle response, and more. Choose between Offroad, Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual, based on where you are and where you want to go.

Towing, Hauling & Exploring

Also standard in the Q5 is the Audi staple quattro® all-wheel drive system with ultra® technology. This drivetrain is designed to help you stay steady and confident on the road, no matter what the road conditions are like. It does this by constantly monitoring the road and automatically adjusting the power going to each wheel.

In addition to being able to take the fun off the pavement, you'll be able to take your big toys with you. Thanks to the brawn on top of its beauty, the Q5 can tow quite a bit of weight when the vehicle is properly equipped.

With its power and other optional equipment, this compact luxury SUV can tow up to 4,400 pounds of trailer weight. Use this impressive towing capacity to move all kinds of things, including utility trailers with ATVs on them, the family fishing boat, and other small vehicles.

  • Audi adaptive cruise control: This system bundles a variety of technologies, including Traffic jam assist and Audi active lane assist, to help you prevent collisions on the road when in cruise control. If need be, these features will take over to slow you down or stop your vehicle while in cruise control to prevent a collision.
  • Audi pre sense® city: This system automatically engages the brakes to prevent a collision when it detects that the traffic in front of you has slowed or stopped. This system can also pick up on pedestrians that walk in front of you and will bring you to a stop if you're driving under 52 MPH.
  • Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear: This feature keeps tabs on your blind spots. If it detects a vehicle in your blind spot, you'll get a notification, so you don't try to change lanes.
  • Audi park steering assist: This advanced system helps you park with automatic steering. Using a system of exterior sensors and cameras, this system has the ability to automatically maneuver you into a parallel or perpendicular parking spot.
  • Rear cross traffic assist: This feature helps you back up by warning you of oncoming vehicles. When a vehicle is coming, it'll let you know. When the coast is clear, it'll let you know. Back out of the driveway or the parking lot with confidence.

One more advanced safety feature you can opt for is a Top view camera system. Using a series of exterior cameras, this feature can stitch together a 360-degree view of your vehicle's surroundings to be displayed on the touchscreen display.
