The Q5's exterior styling was mildly tweaked for 2021.

The Audi Q5 is popular, like really popular. Audi moved more than 50,000 of them in the US last year, enough to make the Q5 the brand's best-selling product. In fact, Audi delivered nearly twice as many Q5s as it did Q3s, its next most-popular model. You can blame today's SUV-obsessed motorists for this lopsided showroom performance, but that's only part of the story, because from refinement and features to luxury and performance there's plenty to like about the 2021 Audi Q5.

This crossover's looks have been refined for 2021, though the changes are subtle. The prominent Singleframe grille is slightly broader than before and its outer trim is slimmer. Flanking that conspicuous opening are standard LED headlamps. The Q5's sills have been reworked and it has a new rear diffuser insert and accent strip on the hatch. Improved as it might be, it's still debatable whether the Q5 is more attractive than the BMW X3, Lincoln Corsair or Volvo XC60, three of its primary rivals.

Tug on one of the Q5's exterior door handles and you're greeted with a very nice interior. The dashboard's layout is attractive and functional, angled slightly toward the driver so nearly everything is within easy reach. Aside from its leather seating surfaces, which neither look good nor feel nice, the Q5's material quality is generally excellent, with plenty of attractively grained soft plastics. Still, in this example, a little contrast would be nice. Dark-brown, Australian Open Women 2021 betting review-pore wood accents on the black dashboard and door panels look a little dour. Like in other Audis, the Q5's various switches and knobs feel great, with all the buttons making the same pronounced clicking sound when pressed.
