Combining sporty driving performance and SUV versatility, the 2021 Audi Q5 model line continues to set a new standard in the luxury SUV segment. The updated Q5 models, including the plug-in hybrid Q5 as well as the SQ5, combine sharper design with excellent every day usability and offer a larger array of infotainment and driver assistance features to cement their position as the brand’s bestselling SUV lineup.

Refined exterior design
The 2021 Q5 model line has been updated to feature the brand’s new SUV design language. The octagonal Singleframe® grille is now thinner and wider than its predecessor and the side air intakes are taller with sporty trapezoidal inserts. From the profile, the Q5 has a lighter look thanks to the redesigned side sill. At the rear of the vehicle is a new trim element connecting the taillights and a new horizontal diffuser insert. 

The Q5 45 TFSI model comes standard with the Advanced line exterior, which includes vertical chrome strips in the grille and silver accents in the front and rear bumpers. The Q5 PHEV model comes standard with the S line exterior which includes a sportier honeycomb structure in the Singleframe® grille and a more aggressive front and rear diffuser design. The SQ5 offers an available black optic package, which adds matte black roof rails, high-gloss black exterior mirror housings and black exterior accents along with 20” 5-V-spoke-star design wheels in bi-color finish with summer tires (all-season 20” tires optional).

Two of the available paint colors are new – District Green and Ultra Blue, and both are offered the Q5 PHEV and SQ5 variants.

Additional exterior highlights include:

  • Q5 models receive standard 18” 5-arm-star design wheels, or available 19” 5-double-arm design wheels in bi-color finish, or 20” 5-arm-design wheels.
  • PHEV models receive standard 19” 5-double-spoke-star design or available 20” 5-double-spoke star design wheels in bi-color finish.
  • The Q5 PHEV also offers an available Sport plus package which includes adaptive air suspension, 20” 10-spoke-star design wheels in platinum finish with summer tires, front sport seats, S line leather/Dinamica seats, black headliner, and brushed aluminum inlays.
  • SQ5 models receive standard 20” 10-spoke-star-design wheels in platinum finish with summer tires (all-season 20” tires optional).
  • New for 2021 SQ5 models, customers can choose 21” 5-arm-polygon design wheels with summer tires, or as an upgrade to the Black optic package, 21” 5-V-spoke-offset design wheels in bi-color finish with summer tires.
  • Exclusive for the SQ5 is an available Audi accessories sport exhaust with quad hot pipes and increased exhaust note (available as a port installed accessory or can be purchased through an Audi dealer).
