New Audi Q5 Sportback makes debut

28th September 2020 | Steve Lumley

The Audi Q5 has had the Sportback treatment - and it looks great.


If you want a stylish car that has the curves of a coupe, and the robust stance of an SUV, then the Audi Q5 Sportback is worth your attention.

Audi has already combined these design ideas when developing a Sportback for its new e-tron and Q3.

Now it's the turn for the Q5 Sportback which has been designed to appeal for those wanting a family-friendly SUV packed with technology and safety equipment.

New Audi Q5 Sportback

The new Audi Q5 Sportback will appear in early 2021, and be available in Sport, S line, Vorsprung and Edition One trim options - and make for a stylish car leasing opportunity.

The new version offers large air inlets and stylish headlights with a distinctive daytime running light signature.

The sloping rear window also drops down to the high-mounted rear bumper to give a powerful and dynamic appearance.

The new version is also slightly longer than its siblings with room on-board for five people.

There's a 10.1-inch infotainment display in the two-section dashboard, and this will feature the third-generation of the firm's infotainment offering.

Display offers full-touchscreen functionality

Indeed, the display offers full-touchscreen functionality, and the rotary MMI control dial has now been removed.

There's also improved natural language control for the car's infotainment too.

The Audi Q5 Sportback also features a panoramic 12.3-inch display for the virtual cockpit, which will be fitted as standard to all UK models.

The new system includes high-res satellite Google Earth images so the car can deliver street-by-street information, along with traffic forecasts and traffic flow in real-time.

The system also has travel updates, weather forecasting, a newsfeed and fuel prices in the local vicinity.

Many drivers will also enjoy the on-street parking assistant as part of the Audi Connect package which helps find spaces in a nearby location.

Engines available for the Audi Q5 Sportback

There are two, four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines available for the Audi Q5 Sportback.

They both develop 204 PS for decent performance, with the Q5 Sportback offering a twin-turbocharged V6 TDI unit producing 347 PS.

Audi will introduce a plug-in hybrid at some point in 2021, with an electric motor being mated with a petrol engine.

All engines are coupled to a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission, except for the V6 model which comes with an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox.

The Audi Q5 Sportback

Handling for the 2021 Audi Q5 Sportback will be rewarding with the firm's Drive Select dynamic handling system and adaptive air suspension being added.
