Apologies for the tardy reply chaps...

One of the standout new technical developments for the new Q5 is a new quattro system for the 4-cylinder models... effectively in casual everyday driving the rear diff is engaged and you're in AWD... but now you're just tootling along gently up the freeway at 100kmh, the new system will completely disengage the rear diff to make it a FWD vehicle, thereby achieving material efficiency improvements.

All in all a really nice piece of kit, and a worthy follow up of the original, massively successful Q5. Audi sold more than 1,4Million units of the first Q5 model.

Let's not talk about the price though... :shock: :whistlin:
