Unveiling two new models in quick succession to the attention of its customers is the opportunity that Audi Maroc seized recently, as part ofhe international Audi quattro Cup 2021 tournament. In addition to the Q2, attention was also focused on the Q5 Sportback. A premium cut SUV which is aimed at customers looking for a more expressive design compared to a classic Q5 with, as a bonus, an additional touch of sportiness.
Knowing that the cut-off SUV segment is on the rise, Audi has thus diversified its range of SUVs with this body variant which is attracting more and more customers. It must be said that many car manufacturers have already entered the segment, including BMW and Mercedes, historic rivals of the brand with the four rings.

As long as the clientele is in search of stylistic fantasy and elegance, it is now possible to opt for a Q5 Sportback. Precisely, it’s all about style for this premium SUV as evidenced by its large air intakes flanking the traditional octagonal “Singleframe” grille dear to Audi. Add a new light signature of daytime running lights with LED technology or optional Matrix LED technology. Since we are talking about a coupe, it is of course the sloping rear part that stands out.
Plethora of equipment
On board, regulars of the brand will not be disoriented. The interior layout looks exactly like that of the classic Q5. Suddenly, no big surprises in terms of assembly and finishing, the quality of the materials is intended to be of very good quality. In terms of infotainment, the machine inherits a new touch screen with more ergonomic menus, more qualitative graphics and smoother navigation.
