Three trim levels all representing German high-quality manufacturing

Most Audi models are offered in three trim levels. The same applies to the Audi Q5. As a result, you will have to select on version between the Komfort, Progressiv and Technik variants of Audi’s SUV. But what do these names mean?

The first trim level, named Komfort, represents the entry-level model. Then again, just like its name implies, it’s an entry-level model which banks on comfort and luxury first and foremost.

The Progressiv version goes a little further: It’s the perfect middle ground between a Komfort and a Technik Q5. It adds aesthetical elements and a good deal of extra technologies to the vehicle.

Finally, the Technik version embodies the finest luxury level there is for a Q5 with all its conveniences and innovations in line with current tastes and desires of customers.
