One does find, across the Audi product line, a range of model variants, but these involve mostly performance-oriented differences, not distinct styling approaches. The result is that the German automaker is a few players short of being present in every niche its rivals compete in.
According to Autozeitung.de website, Audi is preparing to take the first step towards correcting that situation. The company is said to be working on development of a Sportback version of the Q5 SUV.
Current speculation is that the Q5 Sportback will get a premiere presentation this fall and then debut at German dealerships in the spring of 2021. The new variant will be developed alongside a refreshed version of the regular Q5.
Spy photos have showed the regular Q5 with a camouflaged face and rear, which hints at mid-cycle upgrade for the model. The German website reports says the SQ5 Sportback version is also on the way and will place more emphasis on performance.
