CUS­TOMERS now have the op­tion of an off-road styling pack­age for more ag­gres­sive, out­door char­ac­ter­is­tics or a sportier ap­pear­ance with an “S line” pack­age.

The Audi exclusive off-road styling pack­age of­fers cus­tomers ad­di­tional fea­tures to build on the vis­ual off-road ap­pear­ance of the all­new Q5.

It in­cludes “tougher” front and rear bumpers, side grilles and door cap­ping strips, as well as wheel arch ex­ten­sions in a strik­ing off-road de­sign.

Stain­less steel is added to the un­der­body guards for the front and rear bumpers and the pack­age also con­tains a sin­gle frame grille, fin­ished with vertical chrome struts. As stan­dard, the off-road styling pack­age in­cludes 19in, five-arm-off-road de­sign al­loy wheels.

The pack­age starts at $5830 when added to the 3.0 TDI and 3.2 FSI Q5 mod­els and $7850 for the four-cylin­der 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI vari­ants.

It also can now be cus­tomised to of­fer an en­hanced sporty and dy­namic ap­pear­ance, with the ar­rival of the S line sport pack­age, adding fea­tures to both the ex­te­rior and in­te­rior of the car.

On the out­side, the Q5 S line gets front and rear bumpers and the dif­fuser in sporty de­signs, the front grille with vertical chrome struts, chrome plated ex­haust tailpipes on the four-cylin­der en­gine vari­ants and S line badg­ing on the front guards. It also adds rear dif­fuser in­serts in Platinum Grey and the lower sec­tions of the front and rear bumpers and door cap­ping strips are painted in the body colour.

The S line pack­age comes stan­dard with 19in five spoke de­sign al­loy wheels.

Its in­te­rior gains S line door sill trims and badges, black cloth head­lin­ing and S line in­lays in Matt brushed alu­minium. All mod­els also get front Sport seats with lum­bar sup­port when choos­ing the S line pack­age, which is in ad­di­tion to the elec­tric driver seat al­ready stan­dard on V6 mod­els.

Pric­ing for this sporty pack­age is from $6390 when added to the 3.0 TDI and 3.2 FSI Q5’s and $12,030 for the 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI.

By choos­ing the S line pack­age on the Q5, cus­tomers also have the op­tion of two ad­di­tional ex­te­rior metal­lic paint colours, Day­tona Grey pearl ef­fect and Monza Sil­ver ($1900).

The Q5 is al­ready prov­ing to be a suc­cess with 101 units sold in the first month of sales.

The fi­nal two new en­gine vari­ants will be join­ing the line-up in the com­ing months, with the 2.0 TDI and 3.2 FSI on their way to Aus­tralia. Both are ex­pected to ar­rive this month.
