2020 Audi Q5
2020 Audi Q5 welcome to audicarusa.com discover New Audi sedans, SUVs & coupes get our expert review. The mid-size Q5 SUV receive the RS treatment, as our exclusive image (above) previews, and is set to use the RS 5 ‘s 444bhp 2.9-liter V6 for Porsche Macan Turbo rival performance. In 2020, the Audi Q5 entered the second generation and ushered in a brand new look that gave it a sharper, more athletic look and a bit more power. With everything still so fresh on this luxury crossover, we don’t expect major changes to be seen on the 2021 Q5.
As a transmission model, we expect zero changes in the new-for-2020 appearance of the Audi Q5. It will retain its sharp and somewhat athletic exterior looks drawn from the larger Q7, while the interior will remain comfortable, uplifted and brimful with features.
Speaking of features, we also expect the standard features to remain the same on the 2021 Q5. If our expectations are accurate, the base premium trim will come with tons of desirable features, including 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, automatic xenon headlights, rain-sensing wiper, a power heck, keyless entry and ignition, leather upholstery, Tri-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android car, and much more.
2020 Audi Q5 Engine
The revised 2.0-liter Audi TFSI engine wins 32 hp, 15 lb-ft of torque, and a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission replaces an eight-speed automatic. The impressive results are improved fuel economy (wins 3 mpg in the EPA city and combined cycles over its processor) and better acceleration. Our tests produced a snappy 5.9-second 0-60-mph time, which is a second better than the 2017 model and puts it within half a second of the much-touted Alfa Romeo Stelvio. It is fast, but the Q5 is also smooth. The shifts from the new transmission, dubbed S tronic, are fast and almost imperceptibly – and it doesn’t have that sting from a stop-or low-speed layer-shudder that some other similar, automated manuals do. Even the fuel-saving automatic stop/start of the engine is fast and unobtrusive.
Also expected to remain the same, its powertrain, which in 2020 contains a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, cranks 252 horsepower and 273 pounds-feet of torque. The standard gearbox remains a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, while standard Quattro all-wheel drive will also remain.
2020 Audi Q5
The 2020 Q5 was a IIHS top Safety pick, thanks to its “good ” results in all five crash tests and “Superior” rating in the front-crash-avoidance test. What keeps it from being a top Safety Pick + is its “marginal” rating in the headlight test. Unlike many vehicles, the top Safety Pick status is valid with the Q5 ‘s standard equipment, as automatic emergency braking is included at no additional cost. Since there are no changes for the 2020 Q5, we expect these ratings to remain unchanged, unless the IIHS shakes the test processes.
2020 Audi Q5 Price
It is too early to see an exact release date for the 2020 Audi Q5, but we expect it to be seen in the summer of 2021. Listing exact prices is also a bit premature at this point, but we don’t expect this crossover transfer to make a huge price leap. This means it will probably stay close to the 2020 Q5 ‘s price range, which includes between $42,475 and $51,775 (destination fees).
