2024 Audi Q5 Mild Hybrid System Review

33 0

The 2024 Audi Q5 Mild Hybrid is the mid-range configuration you will find in the crossover’s lineup. The focus is on a more efficient drivetrain. The 45 TFSI MHEV is going to use the same engine as the base version, but thanks to electric support, it delivers more power and keeps the fuel economy at the approximately same level. Well, that is why hybrid systems are serving for. Of course, extra power means extra money.

Other options available if you are after this compact luxury crossover are a standard 2.0-l turbo engine, or a more potent plug-in hybrid, centered around the same four-banger. The SQ5 is a performance-oriented model with V6 power under the hood. Soon, an all-electric Q5 is about to show up. The E-Tron platform underpins the future crossover.
