Auto components India - - CONTENTS - ACI

Audi has launched the new se­cond-gen Q5 in In­dia with prices start­ing at Rs 53.25 lakh. It is avail­able in two trims, Tech­nol­ogy and Premium Plus, with the top­spec trim priced at Rs 57.60 lakh.

The new Q5 is sold with a 190hp/400Nm, 2.0-litre diesel en­gine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch trans­mis­sion that sends power to all-four-wheels via Audi’s Qu­at­tro sys­tem. The ARAI cer­ti­fied ef­fi­ciency for this model, badged as the 35 TDI, is 17.01kpl. Five drive modes come as stan­dard – Com­fort, Dy­namic, In­di­vid­ual, Au­to­matic and Off-road.

The new Q5 shares VW Group’s MLB Evo plat­form with its larger sib­ling, mak­ing it about 90kg lighter than its pre­de­ces­sor, and shares styling cues, both in­side and out. Audi of­fers five ex­te­rior paint shades on the SUV – black, white, blue, sliver and grey.

In terms of kit, the both trims get the Vir­tual Cock­pit all-dig­i­tal in­stru­ment clus­ter and an 8.3-inch free-stand­ing screen for the MMI sys­tem with nav­i­ga­tion that gets Ap­ple CarPlay and An­droid Auto com­pat­i­bil­ity. An in-car Wi-Fi hotspot comes with the top­spec trim.

“The year 2018 will be the year of pro­gres­sion and the launch of the all new Audi Q5 is the per­fect ex­am­ple of this. With a lighter body, whole new de­sign lan­guage and host of new in­fo­tain­ment and in­no­va­tive fea­tures, the all new Audi Q5 is the best ve­hi­cle avail­able for our cus­tomers who want to en­joy driv­ing whether it is on or off the road,” said Rahil An­sari, Head, Audi In­dia.
