For 2018, the technology features in our day to day transportation have evolved more than early car engineers could have ever imagined. One of our very favorite current models at Audi Nashua when it comes to new vehicle tech is the 2018 Audi Q5. This SUV model comes in three different trim levels that cover about a $10,000 price span, each with varying degrees of luxury that you won’t want to miss.

According to Business Insider, this model isn’t just a favorite of dealers and drivers, but it has caught the attention of the Kelley Blue Book, too. They awarded the model the title of 2018 Best Auto Tech Award for luxury brands, as well as a 9.6 out of 10 overall score. The Premium Plus trim is an especially good model for the value, according to KBB.

One of the most notable features in this Audi car is the pre-sense system that includes advanced safety features. This comes standard with any configuration and it allows the vehicle to automatically engage the brakes to lessen the chance of an impact or collision of up to 52 mph. This system also includes lane assist, autonomous cruise-control, and blind spot detection in the Premium Plus trim and up. In the event of an imminent collision, the sunroof will close and the pre-tension seat belts will be activated.

An optional add-on feature you may want to consider is the “virtual cockpit,” which replaces the instrument display with a GPS map that uses Google Earth images. Since this model was first introduced in 2009, it’s one we keep coming back to as each model year gets more and more impressive. As an Audi dealership near Andover, we are happy to offer this model for our customers to test drive anytime. Stop by and check it out for yourself!
