Audi has introduced a slightly revitalized K5 SUV for 2020, added some new technologies from other models and adjusted the engine range.
According to Audi, the K5 is the brand’s best-selling SUV model. Therefore, this latest version should maintain this momentum compared to the Mercedes GLC and BMW X3.
Audi K5: engines and power
All engines now have standard lightweight hybrid technology. The four-cylinder versions have a 12 V system and a sixth 48 V system.
K5 last hunt
The 2.0-liter diesel engine with 201 hp (40 TDI) and the 2.0-liter petrol engine with 261 hp (45 TFSI) start from the range. Both engine variants are equipped with quattro all-wheel drive and an automatic seven-speed dual clutch. The revised TFSIe plug-in hybrid and hot diesel SK5 comes later this year. A six-cylinder V6 diesel was also mentioned, but it has not been confirmed whether it will arrive in the UK.
