Now we are able to compare these with the end result later and find out who has done the best job [;)]

i love the Q7, but the Q5 looks like the ugliest pos crap i have seen in a long time. Does not deserve to have those 4 rings on its grill.

That's a car that's trying to fill too many roles at the same time. [rolleyes]

It also looks like a crack dealer should be driving it.

4 New pics. Photoshop or real? (http://www.arcor.de/palb/einladung_accept.jsp?key=IJHVH84CZDPeZiPd4T1JWUvuD 40OQZ7kQhA4e1Wfi8Rap4%2BOw0AS3w%3D%3D) [confused]

Yeah, I think their photochopped. Hopefully. As I mention in my blog, (http://www.audidailynews.com/2008/02/spy-shots-audi-q5.html)I hope Audi pursues a more futuristic look cause it looks like a mini Q7 which was designed 3 years ago.

Q5 Engines (EU!):

2.0 TSI 130/177 320 Nm
2.0 TSI 155/211 350 Nm
3.2 FSI V6 198/270 330 Nm

Diesel
2.0 TDI 105/143 320 Nm
2.0 TDI 125/170 350 Nm
3.0 TDI V6 155/211 500 Nm
3.0 TDI V6 176/240 500 Nm
3.0 TDI V6 220/300 650 Nm

It's likely the 2.7 TDI will be replaced by the 3.0TDI and this list may be showing some of the engines to come for the A4 too [;)]

But after taking a long and close look at the pictures, I have my doubts...

1. The front looks to me a bit too much like the VW Tiguan. [down]
2. The headlights are the same as the A4/B8 (thought Audi wanted us to recognize the different types by the LEDs[:/])
3. The Quattro? badge is on the wrong side of the grill. And not as common placed between the vertical spokes?
4. IMHO the rear could be close to the real thing.

They look similiar in the same say the Passat and the A4 look similar. It makes sense for them to look similar and the Audi still has it's extra touch of classiness.

Dimensions:

Length: 4.63 meters
Wheelbase: 2.81 meters

respectively ten and seven centimeters longer as the GLK & X3.

The GLK and X3 are fugly, Q5 is much better looking IMO. I'm not feeling the new X5 compared to the old X5 either. The new ML and GL are nice.

Audi has released the specs of the Audi Q5, also for the US.

Audi of America said that as of July 9, the decision has been made to offer the Q5 in the U.S. with a 3.2-liter V6 FSI direct injection engine and a six-speed Tiptronic transmission.

Audi of America confirmed that the Q5 will be the first Audi offering here with the Generation 3 MMI (Multi Media interface) and navigation with real-time traffic information. The U.S.-spec Audi Q5 goes on sale in the first quarter of 2009 as a 2009 model-year vehicle. Pricing has not yet been announced.

The 3.2-liter V6 delivers 270 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque. Audi of America said the Q5 with this engine sprints to an estimated 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. It noted that the S tronic transmission will not be offered in the U.S., only the six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

I have seen it in Valencia and found it more a bigger shaped A4 Avant. And I like the way it looks [:p]
