New Audi Q5


New Audi Q3



The 2022 Audi Q3 allows you to command the streets of Queens with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works alongside a standard eight-speed automatic transmission to make 184 horsepower. For even better performance, you can opt for the 228-horsepower variant of that same engine. Both powertrains work with the quattro® all-wheel-drive system for added confidence on rough terrain or in poor weather.

The 2022 Audi Q5 comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that provides you with up to 261 horsepower. This engine works alongside a seven-speed automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive for smooth shifting and enhanced traction. However, if you're looking to harness more power, you can get behind the wheel of the plug-in hybrid powertrain. The additional electric motor makes up to 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.


Many Long Island drivers may be wondering how much space these Audi SUVs have to offer them. You can expect both the new Q3 and Q5 to have comfortable and spacious seating for five passengers and plenty of cargo space for your extra luggage. The Audi Q5 has up to 53.1 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the front row, offering slightly more space than the more compact Audi Q3.

Long Island drivers can expect to find plenty of innovative tech on either Audi SUV. However, when it comes to the infotainment system, Audi Q5 offers a large 10.1-inch display as a standard, while you'll have to upgrade from the 8.8-inch option included with the Audi Q3. Meanwhile, both options allow you to stay connected on the Nassau County roads ahead using your smartphone with seamless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. No matter which option you bring home, you'll have access to other available features like a Wi-Fi hotspot, premium sound system, and in-dash navigation.

Safety and Security

Audi sets a new standard for driver safety with its suite of standard driver-assist systems. Whether you bring home the new Audi Q5 or Audi Q3, you'll be able to navigate heavy traffic, busy intersections, and tight spaces with confidence and ease. Some of these standard and available features include:

  • Audi Pre-Sense Front - This system uses a front camera to help alert you to any possible collisions. If you don't react quickly enough, your Audi SUV can brake automatically to help reduce the severity of a collision or avoid it entirely.
  • Available Audi Adaptive Cruise Assist - When you use this system, you can relax on long stretches of highway while your Audi SUV helps you maintain a preset distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Bird's Eye View - This feature makes parking in small spaces or busy parking lots a breeze. With the available top view camera system, you'll be able to see your position in relation to everything around you right on your display screen.
