Audi s newest Q5 has the makings to be the premium crossover that all others will be compared to.Fortunately, Audi has been fine-tuning its Q5 since 2008, and its second generation is about to hit the road.It packs a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that generates 252 horsepower and sends it to all four wheels by way of a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.From the grille to the tail, the Q5 s new look puts it in line with the current Audi design language, bridging the gap between it and its big brother, the Q7.A lightweight, mixed-material construction — including high tensile strength steel as well as aluminum — has helped the Q5 shed around 200 pounds of weight compared to the previous model.The 12.3-inch digital display cluster presents digital instruments as well as an information screen where the driver can access media, navigation, and other car systems.

Audi s U.S.-bound RS3 sedan may be the brand s biggest Paris Motor Show news, but the German automaker also introduced its next generation Q5 among Parisian festivities.The Q5 luxury compact crossover has been on sale since 2009 and despite some minor tweaks since then, it has yet to receive a full makeover.A cursory glance at this all-new generation might miss the biggest changes, but there are several updates beneath the evolutionary design.Audi s best-selling crossover has adopted styling from its 2017 Q7 sibling, meaning the front fascia features the brand s new single frame grille with horizontal bars in silver finish.The vehicle is a tad larger than the outgoing Q5, providing extra cargo capacity and legroom for rear passengers.Audi s steel and aluminum platform is responsible for a weight reduction of 200lbs compared to the preceding model.
Hot on the heels of the 2018 Audi Q5 unveiled at the Paris Motor Show are two new Audi RS models.The Audi RS 3 this year, however, is stirring things up a bit by introducing the first Audi compact sedan to bear the Rennsport moniker.Top speeds reach 250 km/h but, upon request, Audi is willing to top that off to 280 km/h easily, as the speed is actually only electronically capped.This power is managed by a 7-speed dual clutch transmission carried over to the quattro all-wheel drive.The RS 3 Sedan definitely looks its part as well, with a frame that is 20 mm wider than its A3 predecessor.It bears all the hallmarks of an RS line, including the quattro logo at the bottom of its three-dimensional honeycomb grille.
First came the revamped Q7, then the baby Q3 got a makeover, and now the most important member of Audi s SUV tryptic, the 2018 Q5, has broken cover in Paris.Borrowing styling cues from its larger and smaller siblings, as well as a welcome blast of tech from the Ingolstadt automaker s labs, it s a serious upgrade for what s a very serious vehicle for Audi.That s because the first-generation Q5 has become the best-selling vehicle in its class, worldwide, meaning there s plenty riding on whether or not this second-generation version is as much of a hit.First impressions are certainly good.The design is chunky and handsome, with Audi s now-familiar trapezoidal grille sitting alongside crisp cut lines and a sharp shoulder crease, the latter softened with a slight ripple around the rear doors.Audi has trimmed almost 200 pounds from the 2018 Q5, turning to lashings of maximum tensile strength steel and aluminum to put its crossover on a diet.

Ford is working towards a one model for all regions program, and while it's taken the company four years to get its larger SUV it's bigger than the Ford Kuga across the Atlantic, it's finally arrived – and it's been worth the wait.Starting at £29,995, the Ford Edge goes up against some pricier competition including the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and BMW X5, and it aspires to match its rivals when it comes to the tech it's packing inside.Seats are generous and supportive, while the back row can easily accommodate three adults, let alone 2.5 children.Much like noise-cancelling headphones, these mics can pick up unnecessary noises and drown them out, to a point.The Edge certainly wasn't loud, but I can't say the noise-cancelling smarts were immediately noticeable – until, that was, I returned home and got in my own car.You're not going to get silence – and anyway you wouldn't want to totally drown out the pleasing rumble of that two-litre engine – but Ford has managed to reduce the sound inside, which is always nice.
