The new 2021 Audi Q5 Sportback has been revealed differentiated from the regular version by the sloping coupe roof.
Measuring in at 4690mm in length, the Q5 Sportback is 7mm longer than its Q5 SUV stablemate with a 2820mm wheelbase. Height and width match at 1660mm and 1890mm respectively.
At least 510L of luggage space is on offer with all seats in place, expanding to 1480L with the rear seat folded down.
Speaking of the rear seat, it is a seat bench plus, which can be shifted laterally and has adjustable seat back angles. If necessary, it can slide forward to increase the base luggage capacity by as much as 60 litres to a maximum of 570L.
Offered in two exterior lines – advanced and S line - design features of the new Q5 Sportback include large air inlets, octagonal Singleframe grille, LED matrix headlights and digital OLED rear lights.
Internally the Q5 Sportback uses the same controls, displays and infotainment as found in the updated Q5 counterpart. This includes the Audi virtual cockpit plus displayed on a 12.3-inch screen and a head-up display. The MMI navigation plus infotainment system is paired with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display.
Safety is taken care of with a range of driver-assist systems organized into three packages – adaptive cruise assist, predictive efficiency assist and pre sense city system.
Powering the Q5 Sportback at launch is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which develops 150kW of power and 400Nm of torque mated with a seven-speed S tronic DCT and quattro all-wheel drive.
Following the launch, the Q5 Sportback will also be available with a 120kW four-cylinder TDI, a V6 TDI and two 2.0 litre, four-cylinder TFSI engines. A plug-in hybrid model will also join the range in due course.
The Q5 Sportback is expected to arrive in Australia during the second half of 2021 with further specifications and pricing to be announced closer to the launch date.
