performance standards in its vehicle class.
All Macan models were developed, tested and built in keeping with the Porsche philosophy. That’s where we take sporty style and performance from the racetrack and inject it into everyday driving. We make it as efficient as possible, and of course, just as safe and comfortable. No efforts were spared until our engineers achieved their overriding development objective: the first sports car among compact SUVs.
The new Macan, built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever present, and in which new challenges are a permanent driving force. Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it.
A sports car that gives us what we’re looking for, even in our everyday life: that feeling of being alive.
Porsche Macan: life intensified. and in the ‘D’ (Drive) and ‘S’ (Sport) programmes, the electronics used in tiptronic respond efficiently to every driver input.
We’ve incorporated a number of technologies into the Audi Q5 aimed to enhance your drive and improve efficiency. When a vehicle brakes, the discs convert the kinetic energy into thermal energy, which is wasted as it cannot be used. With a recuperation system like the one in the Audi Q5, the kinetic energy is converted into useful electrical energy.
AUTOMATIC START-STOP FUNCTION
In heavy traffic, your car still uses fuel and releases CO2, even when it’s stationary. The automatic Start-Stop function counteracts this problem by switching off the engine when your car comes to a standstill. As soon as you touch the clutch, the car restarts.
It’s the technology that has been synonymous with Audi ever since it was first introduced over 30 years ago – a technology that helps deliver greater traction on all surfaces. It’s called quattro permanent all-wheel-drive. The principle is simple: in the same way that four brakes ensure better deceleration, four permanently driven wheels aid acceleration and road-holding by distributing power to each individual wheel as necessary. The result is a dynamic driving experience in all conditions.
It means that the Audi Q5 can sense changes in the surface beneath the wheels and adjusts their grip accordingly. So when conditions get a little more demanding - in particular, when you go off-road quattro adapts, putting all the force of the Audi Q5’s engine precisely where it’s needed to handle the change in terrain.
