The new Audi Q5 opens for orders in late May with first deliveries in October. Prices start from £33,400.

The updated Audi Q5 will arrive in the UK with four engine options: two TDI and two TFSI. All of these engines combine direct fuel injection with forced induction, and a start-stop system is standard in all versions. Although most of the engines have enhanced performance, their fuel economy has been improved by up to 15 per cent.

The interior of the Audi Q5 has undergone some refinement. More of the controls are now trimmed in chrome, and modifications have been made to the steering column control stalks, the ignition key and the instruments. The narrow panels of the centre console are now finished in high-gloss black, and the steering wheels now feature the latest Q-specific design.

The exterior has some updates, the design of the headlights has been modified, and the xenon units that are standard in S line versions and optional for all others are now framed by new-look LED daytime running lights that form a continuous band surrounding more of the lens. Adaptive lights with dynamic cornering lights and static turning lights are available as an option. Materials, colours and upholstery fabrics have also been updated, there are three new interior colours, three fabric and three leather qualities and a total of 35 different combinations offering plenty of scope for customisation.
