Audi has just introduced the refreshed Q5. A coupe-SUV version – Sportback – will follow soon, maybe even till the end of the year.
It will challenge to the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and BMW X4.
The 2021 Audi Q5 Sportback borrows most styling features, tech and powertrains of the standard model.
The car will have a new sloping roofline at the rear, new LED headlights, revamped front bumper and grille, back lights of the similar design as the regular car’s.
Hotter versions will get a more aggressive body kit, bigger alloy wheels and a tailgate spoiler.
The Sportback’s interior will carry over from the standard Audi Q5 Facelift. Expect a wide list of options, including a customizable interior ambient lighting pack, a HUD, Audi’s latest 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.
The new Q5 Sportback will likely share gasoline TFSI and diesel TDI range of its siblings. The SQ5 Sportback variant will arrive too, as a plug-in hybrid TFSI e-quattro model.
According to British Auto Express, three powertrains will be on offer for the new Audi Q5 Sportback, all with quattro all-wheel drive: a 201-hp 295-lbft (400-Nm) mild hybrid one with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and a belt starter generator, a gasoline 2.0-liter turbo-four 45 TFSI with the same mild-hybrid technology with increased total output of 261 hp; and upgraded version of the current SQ5’s 3.0-liter V6 fitted with a more powerful 48-volt mild-hybrid system.
