The 2020 Audi Q5 gains a plug-in hybrid

The formula is right, but Audi keeps adding a little bit more to its Q5 luxury compact SUV to keep buyers interested and stay competitive. The big news for 2020 is Audi has added another engine to the range: A hybrid powertrain joins the familiar 2.0T turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine that underpins the lineup. The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) features a version of that 2.0-liter turbo engine, but it's joined by an electric motor and a battery pack. The plug-in Q5 also wears a 55 TFSI e badge on its trunk lid.

That plug-in element of the 55 TFSI e model allows electric-only motoring, and the EPA estimate says it can go up to 23 miles on battery power alone. If performance is more your goal, then Audi also offers the SQ5, which has a 349-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine. All Q5s have Quattro all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. The trim levels remain the same—Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige—and Audi offers option packages to improve equipment and technology as well as styling.
