Audi says that the 2009 Q5 will have the best-in-class fuel-economy and towing capacity. Audi estimates fuel-economy to come in at 18/23 mpg (city/highway) – keep in mind that’s with the quattro AWD. Along with the longest wheelbase in its class, the 2009 Audi Q5 has a towing capacity of 4,400 lbs. Oh yes, the Audi Q5 will be the first Audi offering with Generation 3 MMI and navigation with real-time traffic information.
