Audi Q5 launched in a striking new avatar

German luxury car manufacturer Audi on November 23 launched Audi Q5 in India. The car combines a sporty character with excellent everyday usability, and comes with a wide array of infotainment and assistance options.

It is powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI engine that produces 249 HP of power and 370Nm torque. The Audi Q5 is being offered in two variants – Premium Plus and Technology.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Balbir Singh Dhillon, Head of Audi India, said, “Today, we have launched our ninth product for 2021 and couldn’t be happier. Historically, the Audi Q5 has been amongst our bestsellers and we are confident that this new model is going to be no different. With more enhancements, the Audi Q5 offers a perfect amalgamation of luxury, sportiness, comfort and everyday use.”

With Audi Drive Select, the driver can choose between six modes, ranging from comfort, dynamic, individual, auto, efficiency and off-road. The quattro four-wheel-drive system enables optimal grip in challenging terrains.

The front of Audi Q5 comes with the trademark single-frame grille with an octagon outline, which has sharper and better-defined edges.         While the grille and the slats have chrome garnishes, the skid plates, roof rails, and the new fog-lamp casing get silver accents.

The look is enhanced by 48.26 cms (R19) alloy wheels, wraparound shoulder line, LED Combination Lamps, Panoramic Sunroof, and aluminium roof rails.

The car is available in five colour options – Navarra Blue, Ibis White, Mythos Black, Floret Silver and Manhattan Gray.

Atlas beige and Okapi brown in leather leatherette upholstery with inlays in Piano black finishing make for the interiors of the new Audi Q5.  Sensor-controlled boot lid operation, Park assist with parking aid plus, Power front seats with driver memory, and an Audi phone box with wireless charging amplify the comfort factor.

The 25.65 cm multimedia touchscreen takes centrestage with the third-generation modular infotainment platform MIB3. The screen, which has Audi’s latest MMI Touch, voice controls, supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with supporting almost all the controls at a click.
