What is it?
Now four years old, the Audi Q5 faces increased competition for the soft-road-chic title, most notably from the Range Rover Evoque. A refresh aims to keep it in contention.
The telltale exterior difference is that the quadrilateral grille has become hexagonal. Bumper changes are less noticeable, as are rear diffuser and tailpipe revisions. Interior switchgear updates are best labelled ‘incremental’.
Poverty spec has been abolished, demoting ‘SE’ to the bottom rung, meaning all new Q5s have leather and rear parking sensors. ‘S line Plus’ is the new range-topper, boasting navigation and power tailgate.
