2018 Audi Q5 / SQ5 — Owner's Manual
The segments in front of and behind the vehicle fig.130 help you to determine the distance between your vehicle and an obstacle. The red lines mark the expected direction of travel according to the steering angle. A white segment indicates an identified obstacle that is outside of the vehicle's path. Red segments show identified obstacles that are in your vehicle's path.
As your vehicle comes closer to the obstacle, the segments move closer to the vehicle. The collision area has been reached when the next to last segment is displayed. Obstacles in the collision area, including those outside of the vehicle's path, are shown in red. Do not continue driving forward or in reverse.
The four peripheral cameras are located in the radiator grille, in the luggage compartment lid and on both exterior mirrors fig.137. Make sure that the lenses are not covered by deposits or any other obstructions as this may impair the system. During the first hours of use, the engine has a higher internal friction than later on when all moving parts have settled into place with each other. How the vehicle is driven during the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km) also affects the engine quality.
Drive at moderate engine speeds after the initial break-in period, particularly when running a cold engine. This will reduce engine wear and improve the mileage. Do not drive at too low of an engine speed (RPM). Shift down if the engine stops running "smoothly".
Extremely high engine speeds are automatically reduced.
