Revealed cross-coupe Audi Q5 Sportback

September 26, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Audi showcased the Audi Q5 Sportback.

The main difference between the new items and the standard car was the body, but otherwise the new Q5 Sportback almost completely repeats the original cross.

So, the Q5 Sportback differs from the standard model with original alloy wheels, a modified grille pattern and revised air intakes, as well as a rear bumper. The body length has increased by 7 mm (up to 4689 mm), but the width and height have not changed and are still equal to 1893 and 1662 mm, respectively.

Inside, it is worth noting the presence of a front panel from the restyled Q5 and the MMI infotainment complex with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. As for the volume of the luggage compartment, it has decreased by 40 liters to 510.

The Audi Q5 Sportback 40 TDI is powered by a 2.0-liter 204-horsepower turbo diesel engine, with a derated 163-horsepower version of the 35 TDI expected later in the range. The 2.0-liter petrol “turbo four” TFSI also has two options: the performance of the 40 TFSI modification is 204 hp, and the cross, which has a 45 TFSI prefix, has a capacity increased to 265 hp. The “older” variation of the 50 TDI is equipped with a 286-horsepower 3.0-liter diesel engine, and at the top of the line is the Audi SQ5 with a forced diesel turbo engine producing 341 hp.

Note that electrification has affected the entire motor range: 4-cylinder engines received 12-volt hybrid superstructures, and V6 engines – 48-volt starter-generators. At the same time, rechargeable hybrids with 4-cylinder petrol units are also available: crosses with indexes 50 TFSI e (299 hp) and 55 TFSI e (367 hp). As a transmission, a 7-band “robot” S tronic and an 8-speed automatic transmission are offered.

The German corporation hopes that the Sportback variation will account for a third of the total sales of the Audi Q5. The novelty will arrive in European dealerships in the coming months

In addition, the first photos of the Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback electric crossover were recently posted on the Internet. It should be emphasized that the concept of the novelty was heavily disguised. The debut of the crossover may take place before the end of this year.
