2018 Audi Q5 Adaptive Cruise Control: About the Technology
What’s so special about 2018 Audi Q5 adaptive cruise control? Well, since the technology was started to introduce around 2009, it has made Audi one of the promising vehicle in the industry up to this point. It is more about its ability to improve your driving safety without compromising anything. So, what are the facts about this technology?
The Undergoing History
When it was first launched in 2009, the technology was subtly introduced – not in the most grandeur way but more a simple and unimportant update. However, thanks to the technology, Audi managed to sell 14,000 units that very year. It showed that the technology somehow had a significant impact to the operation factor of the vehicle.
From the subtle launch, the Q5 has managed to put itself in the line of promising luxury top rides – up to now. It has kept itself a standard measurement for the great improvement and performance within the luxurious crossover line. It is quite interesting, and even surprising, that Audi hasn’t made any update since that 2009 launch. That’s why they are planning a new one for the 2018 model, including the 2018 Audi Q5 adaptive cruise control.
However, there is something not really pleasing about the 2018 Audi Q5 adaptive cruise control update. Rumor has it that it is possible that the 2018 model may not come with some of the promising features. It is possible that aside from the adaptive cruise control, the traffic jam assist, the lane keep assist, and the thermal cup holders won’t be available either.
If you have ever read the owner’s manual section, there is a disclaimer stating ‘if available on the vehicle’. It is always a possibility that it may be available and yet also absent from the feature. There hasn’t been any confirmation from Audi so the best thing that we can do is to sit and wait.
Some hardcore auto enthusiasts and fans have stated that the technology would be available for the 2018 model – they claim that they have ‘heard’ the company confirm it. Besides the adaptive cruise control, it will also include high beam assistant, active lane assist, and traffic sign recognition. However, there hasn’t been anything official about the availability or when Audi is ready to ship. Moreover, the 2018 Audi Q5 adaptive cruise control is going to cost you around $1,800.
