The Audi Q5 TFSI e quattro has been tuned by ABT Sportsline yet again, this time emerging with a visual makeover on top of the boost in power that has been available since earlier this year.
Consisting of the new front skirt attachment, tweaked fog lamp surrounds, extended fenders, larger side skirts and updated rear bumper with new diffuser and cutouts for the quad rounded exhaust pipes, the aero kit brings a sporty flair to the premium compact SUV.
Review: 2020 Audi Q5 55 TFSI e Quattro Is A Fast And Comfortable Plug-In Hybrid SUV
Other parts are also available for the Q5, such as the optional roof-mounted spoiler and 22-inch alloy wheels with glossy black body and diamond-finished flange that are part of the tuner’s GR series. The ABT logos, aftermarket integrated entrance lights, push-button start switch cap and gearshift cover round up the updates.
The plug-in hybrid Q5 continues to be offered with the ‘ABT Power’ performance upgrade, which lifts the combined output of the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motor to 419 HP (425 PS / 313 kW) and the torque to 406 lb-ft (550 Nm). As a result, the ICE pushes out 306 HP (310 PS / 228 kW) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm), up from the standard 248 HP (252 PS / 185 kW) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm).
There is still no word on the performance of the tuned SUV, but the stock Q5 TFSI e, which has 362 HP (367 PS / 263 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm), does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 5.3 seconds and has a 149 mph (239 km/h) top speed.
