The redesigned Q5 gets new styling, increased performance promise, and a growing list of advanced safety features.
The new Q is also available with Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which lets you expand the cluster between the instrument panel's large gauges into a larger color screen that can display audio, phone, navigation, and travel information.
The standard audio system includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Like the A4, the Q5 is powered by an updated 252-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive is standard.
Available advanced safety features include forward-collision warning with automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear-collision warning, and lane-keep assist. Changes for the 2020 model year include standard high-beam assist, and greater availability of lane centering, adaptive cruise control, and front and rear parking sensors.
A plug-in hybrid version, with a claimed electric range of 20 miles, is also new. For 2021, the Q5 got a freshening with a modest power boost. Coupe-like Sportback versions are added to both Q5 and SQ5.
It also brought wireless Apple CarPlay and more standard advanced safety features.
