Audi’s Q5 is getting a stylish sibling, with the 2021 Q5 Sportback bringing the automaker’s distinctive coupe-inspired aesthetic to the compact SUV. Identical to the B-pillar, from that point back the Q5 Sportback gets a far more rakish design. Even so, Audi says that rear seat passengers shouldn’t be lacking in headroom.
Under the hood, the US will get two engine options. The regular 2021 Q5 Sportback will have a 2.0-liter TFSI gas engine, with 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. There’ll also be an SQ5 Sportback, with a 3.0-liter engine packing 349 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
Quattro all-wheel drive is standard, while air suspension will be optional. Inside, there’s the MIB3-based infotainment system, with a Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium audio system also available. Expect it in the US in mid-2021.
