Stepping on the inside of the 2021 Audi Q5, the changes are minimal but the perceived quality is up with the German rivals. The centre stage is taken by a large MMI touch infotainment with both Android Auto and Apple Car Play. Audi has dropped the cluttered MMI rotary wheel but has kept the physical AC controls for good. Talking about the features on offer, the new Q5 gets wireless charging, 19-speaker B&O system powered seats with memory function, 30-colour ambient lighting, Audi drive select, eight airbags and a lot more.
As we stated earlier, the new Audi Q5 is only available with a sole 2.0-litre petrol engine. The four-banger engine churns out 249Hp and 370 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a clever 7-speed DCT and Quattro all-wheel-drive system. That helps it to propel from nought to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and it is capable of achieving 237km/h on straights.
2021 Audi Q5 is priced attractively and the features on offer are on par with the rivals. Audi should bring back the efficient range of diesel engines given the fact that the diesel portfolio used to have the largest share in the luxury market. Both the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC are offered with a choice of petrol and diesel engine options while the Volvo XC60 has gained the cleaner hybrid powertrain.
