2021 Audi Q5 - New Look, Specs & Interior DETAILS

The 2021 Q5 is not a ground-up redesign, but a facelift of the model that Audi introduced in 2018. It's a refinement of the formula that we already know is working well, with some technical upgrades and external additions. Most of the improvements in the new Q5 apply to its interior and exterior design, which makes it a perfect place to start exploring what's new. The Q5 joins the rest of the Audi crossover SUV's Q line at its front with an octagonal single-frame grille (with chromed vertical ribs on Advance models, and a honeycomb pattern on the sportier S-Line). This grille is a little shallower and wider, giving the Q5 a much more aggressive feel.

This also makes the crossover look lower and hunkered down while at the upper part of the headlamp housing providing a counterbalance to the revamped daytime running light.

2021 Audi Q5 Specs

Being an update, the measurements of the 2021 Q5 have not significantly changed. Instead of the wider bumper covers, the latest Q5 is slightly longer—0.75 inches. Many specifications remain unchanged, including its cargo size, which estimates the rear seatbacks folded in at 53.7 cubic feet.

While the entrance-level turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gets a non-insignificant 13-hp boost, the powertrains carry-over too. Now it produces 261 horsepower and a torque of 273 pound-feet. The 2.0-liter turbo also benefits from a "mild-hybrid" starter-generator operating off of the normal 12-volt electrical system in the engine. Sadly, Audi reports that the system contributes little to the bottom-line horsepower figure for the powertrain.

2021 Audi Q5 Tech And Interior

Improvements inside are not very visible at first, but you will know after spending a bit of time that Audi has concentrated on improving the technology inside the vehicle. For example, the 8.3-inch infotainment system has been upgraded to a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, adopting Apple CarPlay as standard. Audi's MIB 3 (not Men In Black, but Modular Infotainment Platform) is the framework used inside the infotainment system.

Audi’s Virtual Cockpit, which makes for a great Star Wars Starfighter experience is also available in the 12.3-inch instrument cluster, but only on the Premium Plus and Prestige trims. Other updates are relatively minor, such as new contrasting stitching, but remember that the Q5's cabin is already a luxury technophile's paradise. Case in point, the Audi Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster is now standard on the Premium Plus trim.

2021 Audi Q5 Price And Availability

The 2021 Q5 will enter the international markets by the end of this year. Prices start at $43,300, with the plug-in model going for $51,900 and the SQ5 stickering at $52,900.
