Audi launches 2018 Q5 at Rs 53.25 L
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.
