2020 Audi Q5 Getting a High-Efficiency PHEV Variant

The iconic and unmistakable compact luxury crossover is one of the best-selling Audi SUVs out there, and for no shortage of reasons. In sum, Audi Q5 offers a near-perfect balance, according to Kelley Blue Book, of everything from utility and driving dynamics to interior space and quality, technology, and safety features. Of course, now that it's returned for 2020, the small SUV is also set to pull ahead of the rest on fuel economy, too.

The rumors are true: a plug-in hybrid model, 55 TFSI e, will be available, sporting a 2.0-liter TFSI I4 engine paired with a 14.1kWh battery. Not only will it be able to shell out 349 horses backed by 369 pound-feet of turning and pulling power. The experts at Green Car Reports even took it for a ride and, in all-electric mode, got a prospective 27 miles on a full battery charge alone. That sets the stage for more than a few road trips here in Southern California.

Of course, 2020 Audi Q5 will also incorporate many other hallmarks for which the Four Rings has come to be known. For example, the PHEV will standardize quattro all-wheel drive with ultra technology for dependable traction down bad roads and through worse weather. Secondly, it'll continue to turn heads with recognizable style points like a Singleframe grille, available full LED headlights, an optional black optic package, and available ambient interior lighting packages. For another example, you'll be able to tow up to 4,400 pounds as well as transport up to 53.1 cubic feet of cargo with 40/20/40 rear seatbacks collapsed, the latter accessible via a power tailgate. Finally, the full suite of Audi pre sense driver-assistance technologies will be available, as will in-cabin tech such as MMI infotainment with all-in-touch handwriting recognition, an available Audi virtual cockpit, Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, 3D Bang & Olufsen audio, and more.
