Hi,

How can you tell the difference between the 143 and 170 specs on the actual car? My order form given by the dealer doesn't say anything about it being a 143 or 170. Just says Q5 ESTATE 2.0 SE QUATTRO. My order was for the 170. , but how can I check this?

If you have an Auto it has to be the 170. Other than that you could time your 0-60 and see if it reaches it in less than 10 seconds, the 170 is 9.9s and the 143 is around 11.5s.

Once the DVLA database updates you will be able to insert your registration on online insurance quotes and it will confirm that its the 170 engine.

I have the 143, have never driven the 170 but would be interested to see how it performs.

I had the same concern but prior to taking delivery of the car but prior to picking the car up the initial registration certificate clearly states the car as a 170. Also as Kramer says if you have ordered the Stronic it can only be the 170BHP varient.
