Click above for a hi-res gallery of the ABT Q5

Every time a new Volkswagen or Audi is released, German tuner ABT Sportsline can be relied upon to come up with performance and appearance packages to enhance them. The latest ride to get attention is the Audi Q5, and as you can see in the renderings ABT sent out, the body kit helps matters, because the showroom-trim Q5 is actually pretty vanilla-looking. The new visuals are backed up by a modified suspension, 20" wheels, more braking power, and performance upgrades for each available engine. Depending on which mill is nestled underhood, horsepower in the ABT-tuned Q5 ranges from 240 horsepower for the 2.0 TFSI all the way up to 310 horses for the 3.0 TDI with the Power S package.

      I woke up with a borderline headache and I somehow managed to keep it at bay, until I saw this. I'll be honest, I hadn't seen the Q5 before so I thought:

      "Looks like one of those clown cars from Japan, you know the yellow and pink vans with anime vinyls and enormous bodykits all over the place".

      But the original already looks a bit overstyled. Very un-Audish. First BMW with its X6 and now this. German styling became self-aware, and I don't like what they're trying to do.

      dont like it.... the rear looks ok at best, rims are ugly
      • 6 Years Ago
      I wonder how much torque from the 2.0t?
      • 6 Years Ago
      "...appearance package(s) to enhance..."

      ABT should call it the scheisse kit .
      • 6 Years Ago
      ...it looks like it rear-ended someone and has parts of the car it rear-ended stuck to it...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Rims are sooooo ugly, stop putting them on every Audi you tune, ABT, please!!!!!!
      • 6 Years Ago
      i prefer the original q5, the body kit is... um... strange and those rims are just horrible.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Im lost is this an Audi or an ABT ;)
      • 6 Years Ago
      that body kit is definitely a bit much. I like the air intakes, but lose the gray skid-plate-looking-thing below the grille. and speaking of the grille, what was wrong with the audi one???

      the gray wheel flares are cool, sort of gives it an audi allroad look. rugged and such. but i dunno if thats a very good match with the rest of the body kit which is much sportier. lose the spoiler. the exhaust-through0the-rear-facia is cool, but the facia design is over the top as well

      subtlety is clearly not their strong point. but i guess that goes with every after market car customizer who builds body kits..

      Bad body kit, bad color, bad rims. The front end looks like the car's been in a collision. I agree with Kumail891, everything about the standard Q5 looks better, particularly the grille.

      Notice that the front-left tire is flat? haha
