2021 Audi Q5 can be had one of three ways

In addition to the usual gas-powered Q5 and its sporty SQ5 sibling, there's now a plug-in hybrid that splits the difference.

The 2021 Audi Q5 should do pretty darn well, because it takes enhancements from across the lineup and integrates them in a way that should definitely broaden the crossover's appeal.

From a style perspective, nothing should seem all that revolutionary.

The base model wields a 2.0-liter, turbocharged inline-4 gas engine that produces 261 horsepower (13 more than before) and 273 pound-feet of torque, coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

A new plug-in hybrid model sandwiches an electric motor between the 2.0-liter I4 and its seven-speed dual-clutch, boosting net output to 362 hp and 369 lb-ft.

At the top of the lineup is the SQ5, which is specifically positioned as the most engaging Q5 variant.

Under the hood remains a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, which puts out 349 hp and 369 lb-ft, but it mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission that's a bit better suited for the V6's torque.
