“In 2020 we will present a total of around 20 new models, including highlights such as the new A3, the product upgrade of the compact Q2, but also completely new models such as the Q5 Sportback”. There are also other plug-in hybrids and electric cars. While the Audi A3 is known, the facelift of the Q2 was already caught by us as the ErlkOnig, the Audi Q5 Sportback is completely new.

The SUV coupe is stylistically based on the Q3 Sportback, comes with a clearly drawn-in roof profile and strongly flared wheel arches with strong, pronounced fenders. The rear window is narrow, a roof edge spoiler reinforces the coupe-like line. The Audi Q5 Sportback is positioned against the BMW X4 or GLC Coupe.

The coupe joined the facelift version of the Q5 towards the end of the year (see photo show). Accordingly, the new wide grill, the new headlights and the modified aprons can also be seen in the Sportback. There is a larger intotainment display inside. The Q5 Sportback also comes with the 55 TFSI plug-in and the 50 TFSI with 367 PS and 299 PS, the basic versions as diesel and petrol are not to be found in the higher positioned and around 2,000 euros more expensive Sportback. Instead, the two-liter four-cylinder diesels with 231 and 286 hp are on board. The top model is the SQ5 Sportback with 347 hp. There is no RS version for either the Sportback or the facelift sedan.
