The Audi Q5, SQ5 Sportback

Its three-litre TFSI offers concentrated power of 260 kW and 500 Nm of torque.

24 November 2021 | Business

Following the Q3 Sportback and the e-tron Sportback, Audi now presents its third crossover utility vehicle, the first-ever Q5 Sportback. This coupé with dynamic lines addresses customers who appreciate not just an expressive design and technical innovation but also a sporty character and a high level of everyday usability. Topping the model line-up is the SQ5 Sportback TFSI. Its three-litre TFSI offers concentrated power of 260 kW and 500 Nm of torque.

The Audi Q5 Sportback exudes a powerful presence as is typical for the Q models from Audi. Large air inlets flank the octagonal single frame. The headlights with their distinctive daytime running light signature feature LED as standard or Matrix LED technology as optional. The continuous, elegantly sweeping shoulder line emphasises the wheels and with them the quattro all-wheel drive. The side sill trim on the doors imbues the CUV with stability and robustness. The greenhouse extends low over the body and begins its downward slope early so that the third side window tapers sharply to the rear. The starkly sloped rear window and the seemingly high-mounted rear bumper give the Q5 Sportback a dynamic and powerful appearance.

Audi offers the rear lights featuring innovative digital OLED technology upon request. Each light includes three organic light-emitting diodes, which radiate an especially homogeneous red light. Each LED is divided into six segments, which can be controlled individually. The Q5 Sportback offers an animated rear light signature which includes a dynamic coming and leaving home lighting scenario that is typical Audi trademark.

Exterior

Audi offers the new crossover utility vehicle in the “Advanced” and “S line” exterior trim lines. Differences lie in the single frame, the side air inlets and in particular the rear bumper as well as the wheel size and design. There are 11 paint finishes and a variety of trims for the add-on parts to choose from, including the black styling package and both full and contrasting paint finishes. At 4.69 metres, the Q5 Sportback is seven millimetres longer than its sister model, the Q5.

The long wheelbase of 2.82 metres provides ample room on board. With its horizontal lines, the interior is clean and airy. The “S line” interior package gives it an even more elegant or sporty appearance. It offers a wide selection of colours and upholstery materials, including the option of sports seats and top-quality fine Nappa leather. The standard contour and ambient lighting package advance the interior look of the vehicle in the typical Audi model interior identity.

The luggage compartment has a volume of 510 litres, which increases to 1480 litres when loaded to the roof and with the rear seats folded down. Audi also offers the newest member of the family with the optional rear seat bench plus, which can be shifted laterally and has adjustable seat back angles. This expands the volume of the luggage compartment in the base configuration by up to 60 litres on the other hand, it offers enhanced comfort for the rear-seat passengers when the seat back and seating surface are set all the way back. -MOTORPRESS
