On the market for 3 years now, the second generation of the Audi Q5 is getting a facelift.
The clearly announced objective for this restyling is to make the SUV more attractive to customers. For this, the face has been deeply revised with more aggressiveness. Refined singleframe and honeycomb grille, redesigned light signature and less prominent “air intakes” are on the program. At the rear, it is lighter, we notice the black rod coming more frankly to emphasize the new OLED lights and a more attractive diffuser. Finally, still to improve its statutory aspect, the ground clearance is slightly increased.
No revolution inside, except the appearance of a gigantic 10.1 inch floating screen, touchscreen of course. In a still very welcoming interior, the manufacturer advocates quality and personalization to feel at home. The famous Virtual Cockpit is always there, of course.
Under the hood, the launch version will offer a largely redesigned 40 TDI with lighter parts and greatly reduced nitrogen oxide emissions thanks to a new SCR catalyst system with double dosing with double injection of AdBlue. Thanks also to the traditional light 12V hybridization, WLTP consumption then goes from 6.4 to 5.4 l / 100 km and from 169 to 143 g / km for C0² emissions. Enough to save a lot at the pump but also with the purchase with a reduced penalty. Otherwise, several other engines will be available. It will be possible to opt for a 2-wheel drive variant, but also the V6 TDI, two TFSI 2.0 or two power levels for the TFSI hybrid rechargeable transmission.
This new vintage will be launched in France from autonomous 2020 at prices currently unknown. Currently, the Audi Q5 starts at € 46,020 with the 35 TDI S tronic of 163 hp.
