Nevertheless, we still want to bring the Audi Q5 nearer to you.We would like to present all the information and specification of the Audi Q5 for those who are interested to buy the SUV.
There is two version of the Audi Q5 introduced in Malaysia namely the Audi Q5 and the Audi Q5 S-Line.

The S-Line will have few extra accessories such as the Audi Exclusive Cast Aluminium Alloy Wheels, the S-Line Exterior bodykit and a Milano leather for the front seats and black headlining.
