Default what's new in 2015 Q5?

I have the 2014 Q5 TDI and was just wondering, are there ANY changes in the 2015 model?

Not really. But if you have s-line in USA you're a lucky guy 'cause no more in 15.

This came from the 2015 Product Information Book and may not cover any recent changes that people have observed from the order guide, such as removal of the S-Line Plus option. You can compare the 2014 vs 2015 order guides:

hmm do you mean s line plus package (black trim, titanium wheels...)

if so, there was an update to the overall order guide on July 18, that adds the high gloss black package, which is everything the s line plus had, except the adaptive suspension

msrp is $1500

I ordered one...

I'm going by the June 2014 order guide. If what you state is correct then it will make a lot of people happy. Does it also include the flat bottomed steering wheel?

also, wheels are different, it's the 20" 5-v spoke on titanium

i saw an product info book that has pictures of it - looks like the 18" wheel but bigger

but I'm hoping they change it to the rs4 wheel, which also matches that description

Also missing is the flat bottom steering wheel. Not sure if that is a stand alone option now on the MY2015.

Audi Q5 2015
I stand corrected. Also looks like there is a S Line Plus, but only available on TDI models.

no worries bro. you don't know how frustrating it has been trying to find information.

I called audi of America 6 times and dealers like crazy

it's been really confusing and it seems no one knows what is going on

I guess what happened is that the high gloss black package wasn't ready for initial orders

I still don't have a visual confirmation of the wheels or interior inlays. I have a product info book on the q5, which shows the wheels, but I don't know if its legit

I can send it to you if you pm me

I think the high gloss black wheels will be similar to the s4 high gloss black wheels

the description matches this wheel found on the Germany audi page for q5

I ordered a 2015 Q5 in late April when the ordering guides did not show the high gloss black nor the S Line. I wanted to get as close to a 2014 S Line as possible. Audi made the whole process frustrating (lack of info) and now even more so that they added what I wanted.

So dealer calls to say car is arriving. That very day I custom ordered a BMW 435 with full M Performance (yes a coupe and not an SUV). I politely declined the Q5 he ordered (the deal was I didn't have to take it). I figure I want what I want and not to settle.

And Still I don't see the Gloss Black nor S Line on the audiusa.com

I find it ridiculous how hard they make it to properly order a vehicle. I declined delivery on mine.

So, is there a high gloss black or s-line package for a 2015 Q5 3.0T (not TDI) in the US? I can't find it on Audiusa.

EDIT: nevermind, it looks like it's included by default. It doesn't show as an option.

3.0T and up gets s line exterior (mesh bumper inserts and the all important badge)

s line plus in 2014 was 20" titanium wheels, adaptive suspension and black trim

s line plus got renamed to high gloss black, adaptive suspension is gone from the package, new wheels (that are the same as the 2014 rs5 according to a guy I talked at audi of America), and now $1500 instead of 3k

it's not on the configuration in the usa yet

it's mentioned in the downloadable brochure in a post I posted here

not trying to sound short, but typing on a phone is tiring haha

don't worry, you don't know hard I've been digging for info

the lack of info, and the different answers from AoA and the dealers had been maddening
