The Audi Q5 has received a mid-cycle facelift for the 2021 model year, focusing mainly on slight exterior styling tweaks and an updated interior. Under the hood, the 2.0-liter TFSI engine's output is increased by 13 horsepower. Combined with a 12-volt mild-hybrid electric vehicle system, this setup delivers a total of 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph happens in 5.7 seconds, a 0.2-second reduction from last year.
The 2021 Q5 now features standard LED headlights with daytime running lights and LED taillights.
The Q5's cabin is updated with a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen complete with Audi's new MIB 3 infotainment system, now offering faster processing times and a higher resolution. There's also an available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. New walnut wood inlays and leather seating surfaces are optional. An electronic steering column adjustment now comes standard.
Pricing begins at $43,300, not including destination. Sales will get underway in late 2020.
