Driving around Los Angeles can be quite the undertaking. It seems everything you need is on opposite sides of town, which can take a toll on your time and pocketbook. Rusnak/Pasadena Audi has you covered with the brand-new Audi Q5 PHEV. This efficient and elegant crossover that tells everyone you care about your money, while still looking every bit as successful as you feel. You get the beauty of a luxury SUV, with the savings that come from avoiding the pumps as often as possible.

What is the Q5 PHEV? It is the all-new compact plug-in hybrid from Audi. It brings you unprecedented power and gets you farther than you thought possible. The Q5 55 TFSI e combines the turbocharged four-cylinder engine of the baseline Premium trim, and takes it to another level, by pairing it with an electric motor. It blows away the standard powertrain, by giving you an incredible 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. You'll get a tremendously athletic drive. Besides the boastful powertrain, it comes matched with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission that turns conquering the 210 into a dream.

Underneath the Q5 PHEV, you'll find a 14.1-kWh battery, neatly tucked out of the way, to give you more room. The battery pack gives you an EPA-estimated range gets you about 22 miles. It is the ideal way to handle the stop and go congestion you get from traveling the streets of LA. The EV mode will let you run your battery dry without ever tapping into your fuel source. Or save your battery for the times you're low on fuel, as a fallback. How you drive is up to you. Charging your Q5 takes hardly any time at all. You can get a full charge in less than two and a half hours at any level 2 charging station, like the find you would find at your favorite grocery store or shopping center.

If you think shifting to a plug-in hybrid will rob you of the style and features you get in the standard, fuel-driven Q5, you are mistaken. You will still find every piece of sophisticated hardware and advanced technology in the PHEV, that you would in the traditional Q5. Leather seats, the MMI Infotainment interface and unmatched comfort is unchanged in the Q5 PHEV.

From the opulent interior, athletic exterior, and state-of-the-art technology, the PHEV has it all. Don't get bogged down at the gas station; you have places to be. Why not get there quicker in the turbocharged Q5 PHEV at Rusnak/Pasadena Audi.
