Audi’s popular Q5 SUV is preparing to get a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming year. Although the automaker hasn’t revealed anything regarding the update, the 2021 Audi Q5 will get cosmetic changes only.
2021 Audi Q5 Design
To be more exact, the camouflage at ends hides a new face with an updated grille and restyled headlights, in addition to an entirely new bumper with upgraded air intakes. All the changes appear to be mainly based on the Q7. Around back, the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC fighter look to be including a new rear bumper and most likely updated set of taillights which are coupled with interesting horizontal graphics.
2021 Audi Q5 Interior
Things will be a bit different inside of the 2021 Audi Q5 too. As far as we’ve managed to discover out, the new cabin of the crossover is going to be inspired by the upgraded Audi A4. Meaning, the car will host a new infotainment system that will be hooked to a 10.1-inch screen. The producer will provide a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster for sure, while we anticipate natural-language voice control technology too.
2021 Audi Q5 Engine
We can’t state whether the company plans to make some changes under the hood of the upgraded Q5 or not, yet we are pretty sure that the popular compact crossover isn’t getting anything revolutionary down there. Instead, some choices will most likely get extra power which’s pretty much everything at the minute. Today’s U.S. bound Q5 sports a 2.0-liter TFSI engine capable of delivering 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. This one is fitted with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The company provides a performance option– so-called SQ5 that’s combined with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 and ranked at 349 hp and 369 lb-ft. This one kicks power using 8-speed auto transmission. Both options will survive the update, yet both of them need to provide an increased output when the 2021 Audi Q5 arrives.
