[YesAuto Preliminary audition] In the article “Recommendation of Popular SUVs in the First Half of the Year (1)”, I introduced four key urban SUV models that were just launched in the first half of the It also has a certain passability, but the actual off-road and escape ability is not strong. The four models that I will introduce to you in this issue are also new cars that were launched in the first half of the year, but they are more versatile. They also have stronger off-road capabilities while taking into account city driving.
● FAW Audi-Audi Q5: Low-profile models are worthwhile, and production capacity is increasing
Price: 379,800 ~ 538,800 yuan
The domestically produced Audi Q5 is definitely one of the most recommended SUV models at this price. Among the three major German luxury brands, the BMW X3 model is too old to be replaced, and the price of the GLK is much higher than that of the Q5. The actual sales situation is also like this. The monthly production capacity of more than a few thousand vehicles is completely unable to meet the market demand, and it is not uncommon to increase the price and raise the car.
The domestically produced Q5 does not have a longer wheelbase like the Tiguan, and is exactly the same size as the imported Q5, which is at an average level among cars in the same class. The big mouth design on the front face is very imposing, but the China Open has changed from an imported large grid design to a small grid, and the visual impact has been weakened.
The domestic Q5's central control interior is on the same level as the imported Q5 in terms of workmanship and materials, and the overall performance is relatively good. It is worth noting that Audi’s Media Interaction System (MMI) has different positions on models with different configurations. The low-profile models are directly placed on the center console, while the high-profile models are still located in the middle of the front seats. Convenience.
The domestic Q5 has only one set of powertrain, a high-powered 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged direct-injection engine with a maximum power of 211 horsepower and a maximum torque of 350 Nm. Matched with it is the advanced S-tronic 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, this combination can provide good power and economy in daily driving.
The low-end models of Q5 also have a high purchase value, on the one hand, because the powertrain and drive modes of all models are exactly the same. On the other hand, some of its standard configurations for the whole series are also very flattering. The tailgate that can be closed electrically is more labor-saving for female friends, but for male users, it seems to bring a sense of luxury. More attractive. And into the car, a large sunroof close to 0.8 square meters is also fascinating.
The threshold of Q5 after domestic production has been lowered a lot, and in terms of quality, I have just visited the domestic Audi Q5 factory and I am also full of confidence in it. The highly digitalized and automated production workshop is the guarantee of the best quality. What I don't understand is that it has not been lengthened after the domestic production like the Tiguan, which makes the legroom of the rear passengers not spacious.
