2019 Audi Q5: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

In 2018, the Audi Q5 entered its second generation, ushering in a brand-new look that gave it a sharper, sportier appearance and some extra power. With everything still so fresh on this luxury crossover, we don’t expect to see any big changes on the 2019 Q5.

As a carryover model, we anticipate zero changes to the new-for-2018 appearance of the Audi Q5. It will retain its sharp and somewhat sporty exterior looks, which were drawn from the larger Q7, while the interior will remain comfortable, upscale, and chock-full with features.

Speaking of features, we also expect the standard features to remain the same on the 2019 Q5. If our expectations are accurate, the base Premium trim will come with tons of desirable features, including 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, automatic xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, leather upholstery, tri-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more.

Also expected to remain the same is its powertrain, which in 2018 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The standard transmission will remain a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while standard Quattro all-wheel drive will also remain.

Audi Q5

The 2018 Q5 was an IIHS Top Safety Pick, thanks to its “Good” results in all five crash tests and “Superior” rating in the front-crash avoidance test. What keeps it from being a Top Safety Pick+ is its “Marginal” rating in the headlight test. Unlike many vehicles, its Top Safety Pick status is valid with the Q5’s standard equipment, as automatic emergency braking is included at no added cost. Because there are no changes in store for the 2019 Q5, we expect these ratings to remain the same, unless the IIHS shakes up its testing processes.

Pricing and Release Date

The 2019 Audi Q5 is expected to begin production in late August. We estimate a release date this fall.

Listing exact pricing is also a bit premature at this point, but we don’t expect this carryover crossover to make any huge price jumps. This means it’ll likely remain close to the 2018 Q5’s price range, which is between $42,475 and $51,775 (destination fees included).

Competitors include the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and the Jaguar F-Pace.
