    In terms of styling, the new Q5 has received a few subtle updates over the previous model that give it a more modern look. Up front, the Q5 gets a larger and wider hexagonal grille with vertical chrome strips, redesigned headlights with a new LED light signature, a revised front bumper and side intakes. On the side, the most notable change is the larger 19-inch ‘S-design’ alloy wheels. At the back, there are restyled LED tail-lights that are now connected with a brushed aluminium strip, as well as a re-profiled rear bumper.

    The cabin has also been updated, though the changes are minimal and the focus has been on adding more tech – like connected car features. The central infotainment screen is now a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen unit (compared to the older 8.3-inch unit). The infotainment system runs on Audi’s new MIB 3 that is said to be 10 times faster than its predecessor.

    In addition to this, Audi has also equipped the top-spec Q5 Technology trim with new piano black inserts, Virtual Cockpit Plus (digital instrument cluster), a B&O Premium 3D Sound System, automatic climate control, wireless charger and Audi’s Park assist. On the safety front, the refreshed Q5 gets eight airbags (including rear-side airbags) and ABS with EBD and traction control.
