2021 Audi Q5 vs 2021 Audi Q5 e Plug-in hybrid

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The full Audi Q5 line of compact luxury crossovers has been improved for the 2021 model year. The facelift has reached the interior touch controls and many aspects of the exterior design. Improvements are also found under the hood. While the gas-powered engine has a slight improvement in horsepower, the model is also available with a plug-in hybrid variation for the first time.


The standard gas engine for the 2021 Audi Q5 is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter machine that puts out 261 horsepower. The 2021 Audi Q5 e Plug-In Hybrid pairs an electronic motor with this gas engine. The result is the production of 362 horsepower. Both trim options have Quattro all-wheel drive and S-Tronic auto transmission.


Because many aspects of the Q5’s exterior has been retouched for the 2021 model year, an in-person look is a perfect way to appreciate the full impact of the updates. The Q5 shows off a layered, grid-like grille with a front skid plate, extended headlights with a matrix-style LED bar, and metal-outlined ports for the foglamps. Depending on which of the Q5 hybrid versions you select, your small crossover could have matrix LED headlights, headlight washers, a power sunroof, and up to 19.5-inch wheels.


Many aspects of the interior designs for these two Q5 versions are comparable. They both have a 12.3-inch display screen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, powered seats, an auto climate management system, and more. The top plug-in hybrid trim has a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a navigation system, a heads-up display screen, a virtual cockpit, and other high-level features.
