The plug-in, seen here, features up to 19 miles of electric range from a 2.5-hour Level 2 charge.

Audi estimates most drivers will average about 50 miles per gallon equivalent with regular recharges and average driving habits.

Charge more frequently or take shorter trips and it's fairly easy to exceed that estimate.

Audi's Pre-Sense driver-assistance tech is standard across the lineup.

The Q5 was already a strong foil to the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC; the 2021 updates serve to keep the crossover competitive.
