It stretches 4.77 meters (15.6 ft) long and offers plenty of
space for five people and loads of luggage: Audi is presenting the new Q5L at the Beijing
Motor Show from April 25 to May 4. The long version of the successful SUV is aimed
specifically at customers in China. You can choose between five equipment lines and two
performance versions of the 2.0 TFSI – the quattro all-wheel drive system is standard.
Audi customers in China traditionally prize cars with roomy interiors and high prestige value. Audi
currently offers three models with an extended wheelbase: the A4L, the A6L and the A8L. Now the
Audi Q5L is being added. It will celebrate its world premiere on April 25 at the Beijing Motor Show,
one of the most important automobile shows in the world. The Audi Q5L is the first SUV from the
brand in a long version. Compared to its original base, its wheelbase and exterior length have each
increased by 88 millimeters (3.5 in). This benefits passengers in the rear seat, who gain an additional
110 millimeters (4.3 in) of knee room. Depending on the position of the rear seat system, the volume
of the luggage compartment remains unchanged at 550 to 1,550 liters (19.4 – 54.7 cu ft).
Buyers of the Audi Q5L can choose between the Vogue, Lifestyle, Design, Sport and Sport plus
equipment lines, depending on the engine. These differ in many exterior and interior details. Even
the Vogue base model of the Q5 L comes with convenient three-zone deluxe automatic air
conditioning and the Audi smartphone interface on board. Starting with the Lifestyle model line, the
high-end operating system MMI navigation plus and the fully digital Audi virtual cockpit are added.
The Design, Sport and Sport plus lines also include the Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D
The Audi pre sense basic and Audi pre sense city safety systems come standard in all lines; in
addition, there are assistance packages for the city and for suburban streets. Starting with the
Lifestyle line, LED headlights are available as an option with the highly convenient Matrix LED
technology. The panoramic glass roof is also standard.
The drive system in the Audi Q5L is a bestseller on the Chinese market: the powerful and efficient
four-cylinder Turbo 2.0 TFSI. It is available with 140 kW (190 hp) or with 185 kW (252 hp). It
accelerates the SUV from zero to 100 km/h (0 – 62.1 mph) in 8.6 or 6.7 seconds, respectively.

According to the Chinese emission standard C5 the consumption with 20 inch wheels is 6.9 or 7.3
liters per 100 km (34.1 or 32.2 US mpg)*; this corresponds to CO2 emissions of 164 and 174
g/km (263.9 or 280.0 g/mi)*. A standard seven-speed S tronic transfers the power to the quattro with
ultra-technology, which is also standard. In the Audi drive select, the driver can choose between the
comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency and individual driving profiles. Wheel formats range from 18 to 20
inches in diameter.
Like the Q5 with a normal wheelbase, Audi also produces the Q5L in a joint venture with FAW-VW in
CKD production in the Changchun plant in northern China. A part of the prefabricated components
come from Audi's plant in San José Chiapa, Mexico. With the new Q5L, Audi is seeking to further
expand its strong position in the Chinese SUV market. Sales will launch in summer 2018.
