Each new generation of Audi model that is to come will be, respectively, the last to have thermal engines. So, effectively, the Audi Q5 2024, which is the one that concerns us in these lines, will be a new generation and will be the last with gasoline and diesel engines, following the usual line of TFSI and TDI mechanics of the German company. We can already see what it will look like, thanks to the various spy photos that have arrived over the last few weeks.
The Audi Q5 2024 will be the third generation of the model, and it will be the last to have gasoline and diesel engines, TFSI, and TDI because it will arrive before the year 2033, which is when the brand plans to abandon thermal engines. And although there is still some time left for the launch of the model, during the last few weeks some spy photos have been seen.
So thanks to this we can know, and quite correctly, what its design will be like in this new generation. Which, by the way, will have a front much more similar to the Audi Q4 e-Tron and the rest of the brand’s electric cars. You can easily see that it has smoother lines and sharper optics.
This will be the design of the new Audi Q5 2024, what else do we know about it?
Behind the new Audi Q5 2024, the evolution is expected to go towards a somewhat narrower tailgate, abandoning the more enveloping design of the first two generations of the Audi Q5. On the other hand, the optics should be attached. Although it is something that is not seen in the spy photos, Audi’s trend is, indeed, to bet on completely united drivers, although betting here also on a more torn and sporty design.
In another order of things, the Audi Q5 2024 will be built on the MLB platform, the same one that the next Audi A4 will be based on. So the most possible thing is that the crossover, in its third generation, has the same range of both diesel and gasoline engines. The German brand already completed the development of its new thermal mechanics approximately a year ago, with an important evolution of the electrification system. So, we will see substantial improvements in the electrical part for micro hybridization and hybridization.
A priori, all versions of the model that are not plug-in hybrids, which will be the majority, will have a 48V mild hybrid system. For its part, the plug-in hybrid configurations will have a higher capacity battery to meet future demands in circulation in electric mode. They will experience a substantial improvement in terms of electric autonomy. And although at the moment it has not been confirmed that there will be an Audi RS Q5 in this new generation, at least there should be an SQ5 version in the range.
