2018 Audi Q5: Finally Leaving Europe

By  | 

The 2018 Audi Q5 has enjoyed an extensive stay in Europe and now it is moving on to Mexico.

When it comes to compact crossover SUVs offering luxury the Audi Q5 is something of an old timer. This is due to the looks that are outdated and its age. However production of it has continued at the Ingolstadt plant, right from back in 2008 to today.

Audi launched the one millionth Audi Q5 with the V6 engine and Sepang Blue paintwork and the Q5 has been sold in more than 100 different countries along with being produced in India and China, with more than 1.6 million units being delivered.

Now we have heard about the successor in a recent announcement that was made when the plant director said that the Audi Q5 would be driving off the San Jose Chiapa production line in Mexico from late September.

The reason for the move has been speculated as being due to the fact that wages are lower in Mexico, along with the fact that production in Mexico makes it easier for Audi to gain customers in the US and Canada.

The first time we will get to see the 2018 Audi Q5 will be 29 September when it makes its arrival at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
