Serving Rockville, MD

Are you debating between buying the 2020 Audi Q5 or the updated 2021 model? While these are second-generation versions, the 2021 Q5 shows off updates throughout the exterior, inside the cabin, and under the hood. Our Audi Rockville associates are ready to reveal these updates in person through a side-by-side comparison when you drop by soon.


The performance capabilities of the Q5 have improved in the 2021 model year. Notably, the four-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine now produces 261 horsepower. In the 2020 Q5, this same engine produces 248 horsepower. The 2021 Q5 also incorporates a 12-volt mild-hybrid system into the four-cylinder engine. The result is improved fuel efficiency. The V6 powertrain option has not changed, and it offers 349 horsepower in the 2020 and 2021 model years.


The 2020 Q5 has an alluring presence on the road, and this compact luxury crossover SUV’s exterior has been modestly improved for the 2021 model year. For example, the Q5 headlights and taillights in the new model year are edgy with long LED ribbons running through them. The front and rear fascia also have a sharper definition to leave a positive and lasting impression. You can appreciate a powerful swell over the front fenders and two personality lines running horizontally across the side panels throughout the sides.


The most crucial difference in the line of features for the Q5 is a larger touch display screen for the 2021 model year’s infotainment system. This 10.1-inch color screen offers menu customization and is linked to now-standard Apple CarPlay tech. In the 2021 model year, voice recognition capabilities are improved. Additional standard features for 2021 are a parking spot finder, parking sensors, a rear cross-traffic warning, a blind-spot monitor, and a lane departure warning.
