2021 Audi Q5: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor - June 15, 2020

Model Preview

After being introduced as an all-new model in 2018, the Audi Q5 has only received a few changes. That is expected to change, as the 2021 Q5 will come with a mild face-lift and a slight interior refresh. The changes won’t be extensive, but they’re meant to help keep one of Audi’s most popular crossovers relevant against newer rivals.

On the outside, not much will change with the Q5. The majority of the same lines and design elements will carry over, but new front and rear fascias, as well as updated headlights and taillights are expected to make their way onto the 2021 Q5. The grille is expected to be updated, as well, to a honeycomb pattern instead of the current variant’s design, which features horizontal bars.

Changes on the inside won’t be as noticeable. A larger touchscreen is expected to be added, while a slightly updated center console will see some buttons and dials be moved. The current Q5 features a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Premium Plus and Prestige trims come with a larger 8.3-inch display and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system. Wi-Fi hot spot, Audi’s MMI All-In-Touch system with handwriting recognition, and wireless charging are also offered on higher trim levels.

The 2021 Q5 will continue to be available with S line bumpers, S line fender badge, 20-inch wheels, sport suspension, and S front door sills. Sport front seats are also included with the S line package.

Audi Q5

Under the hood, no major changes are expected for the 2021 Q5. The current model comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Audi also offers an available plug-in hybrid for the current Q5, which combines the base internal-combustion engine with an electric motor for a combined output of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. A 14.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is also included with the powertrain. A seven-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system are standard for both powertrains.

All Q5 models will come with Audi Pre Sense City, which brings forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking at speeds of up to 52.8 mph. The system also includes pedestrian detection. Audi’s adaptive cruise control and traffic jam assist system will be available. The latter is a system that can handle steering, braking, and accelerating without any input from the driver at speeds of up to 40.4 mph.

Pricing & Release Date

Production of the 2021 Q5 is expected to begin in the summer with the release of the model to dealers following after.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but the 2021 Q5 should start close to the current model, which costs $44,295 including destination.

The compact luxury SUV will compete against the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, BMW X3, and Porsche Macan.
