2021 Audi Q5 and SQ5 are on their way with some significant cosmetic changes, but perhaps more importantly, there will be a standard mild-hybrid powertrain and an optional plug-in hybrid variant for the Q5. The new Q5 will go on sale by the end of this year

The facelifted Q5 family will also get the latest Audi infotainment and safety technology, further modernizing the platform that first arrived in the U.S. for the 2018 model year. And Audi is rightly proud of its new OLED taillight technology, available on the SQ5, that allows the buyer to choose one of a few unique rear illuminated signatures – a unique opportunity to individualize

The somewhat large grille is optimized, with a thinner bezel that no longer swings in front of the headlights. Standard high and low LED lights linked the design of the most sophisticated SUV with the impressive RS6 Avant sport utility vehicle, at least at the Green Green Q5 S-Line Audi show. The front view of the new Q5 also appears to be in line with the new design features that appeared in the 2019 Q3, as well as the Q7 2020 update recently

The optional S-Line exterior package also includes an aggressive hexagonal mesh structure we believe to look great on luxury SUVs, as well as bold air intakes at bumper corners and a glossy black front skateboard. The standard 'Advanced Line' exterior package boasts vertical chrome grille bars and silver accents on the front and rear fenders that recall the Allroad family. The advanced line SUVs will be available in new 18, 19 or 20-inch wheel designs, while the S-Line gets standard 19 or optional 20-inch wheels

The rear of the Q5 sees fewer changes relative to the outgoing 2020 Q5. Most obviously, the taillights are new, boasting OLED technology that, for now, is kept exclusive to the SQ5 in the US. These OLEDs feature one of four rear lighting designs that the owner can choose when ordering their new SUV, although we wonder if the design can be changed after purchase

Audi’s innovative Matrix LED technology is also available on the Q5 for the first time, coming standard on the top-spec Prestige trim. The Prestige will also receive dynamic front turn signals and leaving home” headlight/taillight animations – a slightly tacky feature that we can’t help but like

The 2021 Audi Q5 has a new, standard mild-hybrid powertrain that mates a low-voltage belt-starter generator to a mostly carryover 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four. The updated engine produces an additional 13 horsepower (10 kilowatts) relative to 2020, for a total of 261 hp (195 kW) – torque remains constant at 273 pound-feet (370 newton-meters). The mild-hybrid powertrain recaptures energy on coasting and braking to recharge the 12-volt battery, but unlike the 48-volt mild-hybrid setup on the larger Q7, it doesn’t reduce turbo lag or power advanced suspension systems
