    The Audi Q5 SUV's facelift was revealed abroad in 2020 and it brought with it refreshed styling inside and out. On the exterior, the India-spec Q5 will come with a larger, more imposing grille, with vertical chrome slats, new LED headlamps and tail-lamps, reprofiled bumpers and new ‘S-design’ 19-inch alloy wheels.

    Inside, the cabin gets some minor tweaks and comes packed with tech. Audi will offer the Q5 facelift in two trims  Premium Plus and Technology. The top-spec Technology trim will come kitted with Audi’s new MIB 3 infotainment platform with a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen and connected car tech. Additionally, it will also feature piano black inserts, Virtual Cockpit Plus (digital instrument cluster), wireless charger, a B&O Premium 3D Sound System and Audi’s Park assist.
