What will be the coupe-shaped crossover Audi Q5 Sportback?June 18, 2020
Images of a direct competitor to the Bavarian BMW X4 coupe-like crossover appeared on the Web. New from Audi should debut before the end of the year.
During the annual press conference in March this year, Audi announced the imminent appearance of a new crossover in its lineup. Chairman of the Board Bram Shot earlier this year confirmed rumors that the Audi Q5 Sportback will directly compete with the BMW X4 coupe-like crossovers and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. A few weeks later, for the first time we saw a camouflaged prototype of the upcoming “spy” photographs at the party, and now, we have stumbled upon a render of the novelty.
It was created by the artist SRK Designs.
The virtual drawing follows a proven formula and changes the roof line of the standard Q5 to a more inclined shape. The rendering was made on the basis of the very first “spy” snapshots of the new product, which showed that the model will be based on the updated Q5.
Basically, this means that the Q5 Sportback will benefit from the updated front panel of the regular version of the mid-size crossover with new lighting elements and other subtle visual changes. The Sportback coupe version will receive additional changes, such as the aforementioned sloping roof at the rear and the unique design of the entire rear, which will correspond to a more smooth profile.
In the previously published photos from the Q5 Sportback test, we never saw the interior. According to rumors, the interior of the novelty will be able to boast a larger 10.1-inch screen for the infotainment system installed on the dashboard, which is likely to receive the latest Audi MMI software from Audi.
Apparently, both versions of the crossover will receive one engine range. We do not have exact dates for the debut updated by Q5, but we expect the car to be shown by the end of this year. The Q5 Sportback should join him from day one.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the “charged” Audi RS Q8 looks very bold in tuning from the Lumma studio. Through the efforts of experts at the Lumma tuning studio, the high-performance German crossover Audi RS Q8 received an aerodynamic body kit made of carbon fiber and an increase in power.
