2020 Audi Q5 vs 2020 Audi Q5 e Plug-in Hybrid

Serving Brentwood, TN

The Audi Q5 was initially released in 2009 as a compact luxury crossover SUV with a gas-powered engine. A few years later, the Q5 e-Quattro Plug-In was released at the top of the Q5 trim line. Many drivers who visit Audi Nashville with plans to purchase a luxury SUV are torn between the gas-powered Q5 and the plug-in Q5. As you prepare to make your next SUV purchase, you need to know how these two popular options compare.


During a test drive visit to Audi Nashville, you will see that one of the most significant differences between these two versions of the Q5 is in the performance arena. The 2020 Audi Q5 base and Titanium trims are sold with a 2.0-liter TFSI, I4 engine. This engine generates 248 horsepower, and it is connected to Quattro all-wheel drive as standard equipment. If you prefer to drive the Q5 e-Quattro Plug-In, your SUV will be outfitted with this same gas-powered engine as well as a powerful lithium-ion battery. With this combination, you can appreciate 349 total horsepower behind the wheel.


Across the Q5 trim line, the gas-powered and plug-in hybrid versions are almost identical. The Q5 has a confident, upright stance with substantial ground clearance and impressive fluidity over the hood and sides. The balanced definition extends down the sloped hood and sides. Between the base Q5, the Q5 Titanium, and the Q5 e-Quattro Plug-In, you will notice that the wheel designs, as well as the grille and wheel finishes, vary. The Titanium has dark accents for the grille, lower-body side trim and side window accents. The base Q5 has a chrome lower-body side trim piece, and this piece is body-colored for the plug-in version.


The Q5 is designed with high-tech features and high-end luxuries throughout the interior. This 2-row SUV comes with beautiful leather material, a digital cockpit, a 7-inch display screen with MMI Radio, a heated steering wheel, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Pre Sense Basic, and Pre Sense City in the base trim level. The Titanium gas-powered trim adds a virtual cockpit, a parking assistance system with acoustic sensors in the front and rear, side assist, a vehicle exit warning, rear cross-traffic assist, voice controls for the navigation system and an 8.3-inch display screen. The Q5 e-Quattro Plug-In is the top-of-the-line trim for the 2020 model year. It adds a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D audio, traffic jam assist, adaptive cruise control, memory functions for the power steering wheel, a heads-up display, steering park assist, and a top-view camera.
