2021 Audi Q5 seen during snow testsNovember 16, 2019
The current-generation Audi Q5 made its debut in the 2018 model year, revealing modern design and latest technology. In less than a year, Audi is already preparing a Q5 mid-cycle update, and we have new spy photos showing a crossover that is being tested for the first time in Arctic snow. The novelty wears the same camouflage that was seen seen by the wound, covering the front and rear panels, as well as the side skirts.
Q5 borrowed the most significant changes from the larger Q7. The 2021 model will be equipped with an expressive grille and headlights, which, in all likelihood, have a new interior design with a metal strip passing through them. At the rear, camouflage hides the redesigned Q5 flanks. The bumper and exhaust are also updated, as are the LED taillights.
While these new spy photos cannot show the interior, from earlier shots it became known that since this update is in the middle of the cycle, the interior will receive a modest update. The touch screen mounted on the dashboard can grow up to 10.1 inches, it is expected to upgrade the Audi MMI infotainment system. Other changes may include some color updates and trim.
The company does not mention any changes to the power plant, however, given that this is an upgrade of the middle cycle, and not a new generation, existing engines should be carried over without changes. There is a possibility that Audi may offer a hybrid option with a wider range.
It’s a little strange to see the automaker update a completely new model, but the new Q5 will not debut until it goes on sale in the 2021 model. In addition, Audi has every chance to maintain the freshness of the Q5 in its competitive segment, where it competes with the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC.
