Audi unveils a new look for its Q5 SUV, restyled and equipped with new touchscreen functionality and OLED lighting technology.

01 Jul 2020 | International News : Germany

The Audi Q5 has been one of the best-selling SUVs in the premium mid-size segment on European markets for years, and now Audi has made it even better and even more attractive.

The optimised Q5 combines a sporty character with excellent everyday usability, and comes with a wide array of infotainment and assistance options, as the sharpened exterior design of this highly successful model emphasises the Q identity and boasts a rear light cluster featuring digital OLED technology for the first time worldwide.

Customers can choose from three different rear-light signatures
The strong Q identity characterises the exterior of the Audi Q5 with its expression of power, robustness and safety. The octagonal Singleframe is now shallower and appears wider than before. The side air intakes have grown in height and are now structured by trapezoidal insets.

Viewed from the side, the Q5 now has lighter look with greater ground clearance thanks to the redesigned sill insert. At the rear end is a new trim element between the light clusters and a new diffusor insert with a horizontal fin.

Next-generation OLED lighting technology is available for the first time ever in the modified Q5. OLEDs are extremely efficient organic light-emitting diodes that generate a homogenous light surface.

The optional OLED rear light is split into three tiles of six segments each, which enables Audi designers and developers to create different light designs and signatures from a single item of hardware. The full spectrum of the OLED rear lights is rounded off by dynamic turn indicators. The basic equipment for the Q5 is now LED headlamps, with matrix LED headlamps available as an option.

New MMI touch-sensitive controls come as standard in the facelifted Audi Q5
Audi's sliding rear bench plus with adjustable backrests is available as an option. When this is fitted, the luggage space measures 550 litres to 1,550 litres.

Thanks to its intelligent material mix, the Q5 has one of the lightest bodyshells in the segment, while the Cd figure of 0.30 is among the best-in-class. Refined aero-acoustics make for an exceptionally quiet interior.

Behind the new control setup in the updated Audi Q5 is a new main unit - the third generation Modular Infotainment Platform (MIB 3), which offers 10 times the computing power of its predecessor, the MIB 2.

Its basis is a conventional dashboard with a centrally positioned driver information system. The top of the range is the Audi virtual cockpit plus - a high-resolution 12.3-inch digital display with three different graphic layouts. The driver controls the displays via the multifunction steering wheel. The central 10.1-inch MMI touch display is standard equipment in the Q5. Its menu structure with flat hierarchies makes it extremely easy to use, and is searchable using free text. Combined with the MMI navigation plus infotainment system including Audi connect navigation and infotainment, the voice-control system can access the cloud for even greater flexibility.
