Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The Audi Q5 is the small luxury crossover that effuses sophistication from end to end. As you get to know more about this exciting possibility, you may be wondering what the differences are between the 2021 Q5 and the updated 2022 version. While these versions are similar in most areas, there are several critical differences that you need to know about before you pick out your new SUV. With our focus on friendly, helpful service, Audi Farmington Hills is your local source for full details about the Q5.


The most notable difference between the 2021 Audi Q5 and the 2022 Q5 is found under the hood. The plug-in hybrid 55 TFSI e powertrain now has an upgraded battery pack for improved range and power. It continues to be paired with a four-cylinder gas engine. The gas-powered 45 TFSI engine is unchanged between the 2021 and 2022 model years. This engine creates 261 horsepower. It is paired with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.


There are also a few exterior differences between the 2021 Audi Q5 and the 2022 Q5. For example, the base 45 TFSI trim level adds the S Line exterior package as standard equipment in the 2022 model year. In addition, the Black Optic appearance package is offered across more trim levels in the 2022 model year. Across the board, the Q5 has a grid-like grille with a metallic skid plate and sharp-angled LED headlights. The side doors boast upper and lower definition lines, and a metallic accent underscores them. All trims have roof rails, a power liftgate, and auto-dimming side mirrors. Higher trim levels for both years add a panoramic sunroof and acoustic windows.


The Q5 is well-appointed across the full trim lineup for 2021 and 2021, but higher trim levels have an array of more advanced features. The entry-level Q5 gives you leather upholstery for both model years, reclining seats in the second row, a three-zone climate control system, remote vehicle monitoring, smart device integration, and a 10.1-inch touch display screen. If you choose a higher trim level, the Q5 will have a heated steering wheel, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, a wireless charging pad, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a navigation system, heated and cooled cup holders, interior ambient lighting, a heads-up display screen, and other elite features.
