Introduced for the first time as a 2009 model, the Audi Q5 became an instant hit for those looking for a premium SUV delivering an outstanding level of innovation and luxury. And ever since, it has remained one of the most popular sport utility vehicles of its category as Audi increased its value proposition year over year. As a result, the Audi Q5 became more and more cutting-edge technology-wise. On the other hand, these incredible qualities led to a few drawbacks. And one of the most common among them is how tech functionalities are working, and how to use them in a simple way. Audi Blainville, your premier Audi dealer on the North Shore of Montreal, answers the most frequently asked questions about the 2020 Audi Q5 technologies to help you better understand them.
How do I turn on 4-wheel drive on the 2020 Audi Q5?
Every 2020 Audi Q5 from your premier Audi dealership in Blainville comes with the very efficient quattro ultra all-wheel-drive system. This system is even more effective than the former-generation quattro solutions, and features an interesting twist. When you drive continuously at the same speed in optimal traction conditions, the quattro ultra technology will send power only to the front axle to save you gas. But if it detects any significant slip from one of the wheels on the pavement, this system will activate itself in a matter of milliseconds to correct it and restore optimal traction. As it is a predictive system, you will not have to do anything as it manages the all-wheel drive system autonomously. Hence, you will be able to experience all the performance of your new Q5 in the safest possible way, even during the worst winter days between Montreal’s North Shore and the Laurentians!
How do I lock/unlock my 2020 Audi Q5 without a key?
Every 2020 Audi Q5 comes with keyless entry as a standard feature. As a result, there is no key to lock or unlock your Audi SUV. Then how can you get in if it’s locked? And how can you make sure your Q5 is properly locked when you get out to get your groceries for instance? Pretty simple! When you want to unlock your doors, you just have to put the inner side of your hand against the inner side of the door handle. Then you will be able to open it normally as you usually do. Door locking features a pretty analogue, yet different, mechanism. Each of the four doors has a specific area on the outside that you just need to press to lock it.
But that’s not all! A very interesting function can also be used when you just forgot to close your windows and are already outside of your 2020 Audi Q5. Indeed, you can also close them with your door handle! How? Pretty simply: press and hold the same outside area you used to lock the doors. You will see the windows closing up in front of your eyes. Isn’t it amazing how far technology has come to make our life easier?
How do I update the navigation maps on my 2020 Audi Q5?
Here, things will get a little more complex. But don’t worry! If you have a 2020 Q5 Progressiv, you will just have to visit NavTechGPS.com. Everything is explained and is pretty straightforward! On the other hand, if you own a 2020 Q5 Technik model, you will have to log on the myAudi app. Once connected, you will be able to update your navigation maps through the app (free for your first five updates).
Either way, you will see: the process is very easy to understand and to implement. But if you still have questions, we will be happy to answer them and to help you update your navigation system maps on your 2020 Q5 directly at our dealership, which is located in Blainville!
How do I turn on the heating function of my 2020 Audi Q5’s heated steering wheel?
Good news for all of those among you that fear the cold of winter: heated steering wheel is now a standard feature on all the 2020 Q5 trims! But how do you activate the heating function on them? At the touch of a button! Indeed, you will just have to press the one that is located on the lower left part of the right spoke of your wheel, and voilà! You will be able to enjoy the warmth produced by your heated steering wheel in a matter of seconds.
Is there a backup camera on my 2020 Audi Q5?
As SUVs have a higher ground clearance, many owners of such vehicles are regularly having troubles when the time comes to park, especially in the narrow streets of any crowded urban area such as Blainville or St-Jérôme. As they can’t see what is going on, they can damage their beloved SUV pretty easily. Worse: they can damage other vehicles, which can lead to additional headaches with their owners, and/or with insurance.
But it will never happen with your 2020 Q5. Here is the reason: every version of the 2020 Audi Q5 comes with a rearview camera as a standard equipment. If you want even more visibility when parking your Q5, you can add the very useful yet optional 360-degree camera if you plan on buying or leasing a 2020 Q5 Progressiv. However, if you want a 2020 Q5 Technik, this feature is included as standard!
Does the 2020 Audi Q5 have remote start?
Unfortunately, it does not feature a remote start system as standard or as an option from factory. Does it mean that you can’t have one installed? No! And Audi Blainville’s technicians can take care of that. Indeed, we offer the possibility of getting one installed directly on your 2020 Q5 in the most professional way, while not interfering with the manufacturer’s warranty. Hence, you will get the best of both worlds: benefiting from all the advantages of a remote start system, such as an interior already warm during the coldest winter days between the North Shore of Montreal and the Laurentians, while being completely covered if any problem were to emerge on your vehicle!
