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 leg room 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.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TFSI engine producing 187bhp or 249bhp. Those outputs offer 0-62mph sprint times of 8.6sec and 6.7sec respectively.
Audi will produce its Q5L in Changchun, China, as part of the FAW-VW joint venture of its parent company, the Volkswagen Group.
