The updated 2021 Audi Q5 has been revealed headlined by styling tweaks and a new infotainment system.
Dimensionally the Q5 remains 1890mm wide and 1660mm tall while continuing to ride on a 2820mm wheelbase. The car has grown to 4800mm (+19mm) in length thanks to new bumpers.
Exterior design changes also include a shallower and wider octagonal Singleframe, taller air intakes, LED headlamps and restyled alloy wheels.
Next-generation OLED lighting technology is available on the Q5 for the first time, the optional OLED rear light is split into three tiles of six segments each, which enables different light designs and signatures from a single item of hardware.
On the inside, the Q5 gains Audi’s latest MIB3 infotainment system displayed on a 10.1-inch touchscreen which sees the removal of the old rotary controller.
The 12.3-inch virtual cockpit (digital instrument cluster) with three changeable graphic layouts comes as standard, while a head-up display can be optioned.
In Europe, Audi will offer the Q5 with plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid powertrains, however, it’s expected Australian delivered models will carry over the engines from the current line-up that consists of a 40 TDI, 45 TFSI and a 50 TDI.
That would mean local buyers will be able to choose from a 150kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, a 183kW/370Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol, or a 210kW/610Nm 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel.
Every variant will put the power to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Audi Australia is yet to confirm local grades, specifications and pricing, an announcement is expected in the lead up to the updated Q5’s arrival early next year.
