At the tip of June, the 2021 Audi Q5 debuted. A couple of particulars concerning the SQ5 have been supplied, however there have been no photos of the refreshed crossover obtainable on the time. One of our spy shooters has since caught the SQ5 out and about with hardly a lick of camouflage masking it up.
The variations are minor, however noticeable when set side-by-side. This SQ5 contains a comparable honeycomb grille design, however because it’s an S mannequin, it has a silver encompass (an Audi S automotive factor nowadays), differentiating itself from the black encompass on the common Q5. The facet venting on the bumpers function the same silver encompass the place the common Q5 has black trim. There shall be just a little SQ5 badge throughout the honeycomb grille on the SQ5, however in common, these two look very comparable from the entrance.
Its most evident “S” attribute is the quad-tip exhaust. The previous SQ5 had among the most evident faux exhaust inserts in the marketplace (under proper), sitting flush with the automotive. These ideas look actual, however upon nearer inspection, the precise exhaust seems to nonetheless dump out below the automotive, pointed downward. Regardless, the chrome quad ideas are an enormous enchancment over the bizarre rear bumper design of the pre-refresh SQ5.
The wheels are precisely the identical design as these seen on the common Q5 in the primary photos launched. Maybe that automotive was geared up with an S Line bundle of kinds, or it’s only a circumstance of this being a prototype check automotive. Audi has already stated what’s below the hood of the brand new SQ5, although. It’ll be powered by the identical 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that makes 349 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 mph will occur in 4.7 seconds.
We don’t but know when the SQ5 will bow, however think about the common Q5 is already out, it shouldn’t be lengthy.
