Long-wheelbase version of Q5 is Audi’s first stretched SUV

Audi has revealed a longer version of the Q5 for the Chinese market at the Beijing motor show.

The Q5L, as it is called, has a wheelbase and total length that’s 88mm longer than the standard car. This helps free up 110mm of extra legroom for rear passengers.

The boot capacity remains unchanged at 55 litres with the back seats up or 1550 litres with them folded down.

Audi has launched the long-wheelbase Q5 to appeal to China’s unique demand for models with more space for rear passengers.

The Q5L is the brand’s first stretched SUV model. It joins the A4L, A6L and A8L in the Chinese line-up.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder TFSI engine producing 187bhp or 249bhp. Those outputs offer 8.6sec or 6.7sec respective 0-62mph sprint times.

Audi will produce its Q5L in Changchun, China as part of the joint venture of its parent company the Volkswagen Group, FAW-VW.
