Audi Q5 Sportback

Coming in 2021​

Audi has given its Sportback treatment to yet another car in its range - the Q5. Following on from the likes of the Q3 Sportback and e-tron Sportback, the Q5 Sportback boasts a sleeker and more dynamic design than the conventional Q5. Though still retaining the regular car’s classy cabin and efficient range of engines, the Sportback brings a somewhat sportier edge to the Q5. Let’s dive in and see what else it’s got to offer.

Interior

The cabin of the Q5 Sportback has been given a generous helping of premium materials to ensure that it feels up to the standards expected from an Audi product. As such, there's a lot of high-end materials used throughout which meet a large infotainment screen and Audi’s virtual cockpit display. 

However, practicality hasn’t been forgotten about either. Despite the sloping roof, there’s 510 litres of boot space to play with, and this can be increased to 1,480 litres by folding down the rear seats. In addition, tip-top Vorsprung models get a sliding rear bench which allows you to boost the standard boot space by 60 litres by pushing the seats as far forward as possible. 

Exterior

It’s on the outside where you’ll notice the most amount of difference between the standard Q5 and this new Sportback model. It’s far sleeker in design than the conventional SUV, bringing a raked roofline which ties it together with other Sportback models in the range. 

Of course, this does mean that headroom inside is slightly impeded, but it’s not as badly affected as you might think given the sharply tapered roofline. The Sportback represents a new take on the Q5 formula, and it’s a well executed one to say the least.

Technology

As we’ve come to expect from current Audi models, the Q5 Sportback is a car which is practically bristling with technology. Step inside the cabin and you’ll be met by a large 12.3-inch panoramic screen and it’s here where you’ll access all of the major functions such as media controls, satellite navigation and system settings. It also includes Apple CarPlay, which gives another way of quickly integrating your smartphone into the car’s system. 

Audi’s clever Virtual Cockpit is included too. This display, which takes the place of the conventional dials, allows you to change between various screens and icons. You can even use it to show the satellite navigation rather than viewing it on the standard infotainment screen. 

Performance

The Q5 Sportback will initially be launched with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine with 201bhp, linked to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. It’s also equipped with mild-hybrid technology for added economy and efficiency gains. 

Further down the line, expect to see a plug-in hybrid version as well as a performance-orientated SQ5 Sportback version. It’s likely that four-cylinder petrol engines will join the line-up too. 

Trim levels of the Q5 Sportback

Sport

Sport will mark the entry point to the range, but still brings plenty of standard equipment such as 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, as well as the full navigation system and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display. 

Sport

Immensely popular S Line trim will likely be a go-to specification on the Sportback, as it not only adds larger alloy wheels - now 19-inch - but also striking Matrix LED headlights, privacy glass, sport seats and a full sport suspension setup.

Edition 1

Edition 1 cars boast even more standard equipment again, with 20-inch wheels and a full black styling pack giving the Q5 Sportback a distinctly eye-catching appearance. A flat-bottomed steering wheel and LED interior lighting are also included. 

Vorsprung

Finally there’s Vorsprung. With 21-inch diamond cut wheels and a panoramic sunroof, this version really does get all of the bells and whistles you could want. A vast range of assistance systems are included too, and it benefits from a full black styling pack as well.
