Audi plans to launch the 2021 Q5 in November next month. The upcoming Audi Q5 can be booked either online or at your nearest dealership with a booking amount of Rs 2 lakh. The 2021 Q5 will be offered in two variants – Premium Plus & Technology Pack.
Sales figures had been at an all time low for Audi India, as they reported sales of just 1,693 units in 2020. Covid-19 had played a major role in this decline and The brand also had to pull the plug on sales of the Q5 due to the BS-6 norms.
To follow the BS-6 norms, the upcoming Q5 went through a heart transplant and is reborn with a 2.0L TFSI petrol engine producing 245 HP & 370 Nm of torque. This is the same engine that powers the ongoing Audi A6.
Being an Audi SUV, the Q5 will get the acclaimed Quattro drivetrain with the petrol engine. And, If the sound of Petrol Quattro doesn’t excite you, you’re in for a disappointment as the brand is only launching the Q5 with a petrol engine, Audi has not announced any plans of launching the Q5 with its torqu-ey TDI diesel engine.
However, with diesel prices skyrocketing, there is literally not much difference in the driving costs these days, So on the upside, the Q5 with it’s Quattro and drive select feature, will offer an impressive AWD experience on the road.
The 2021 Q5 is refreshed with new redesigned bumpers and 19” S Line Wheels, to keep up with the Sportiness of the S in the SUV nomenclature.
The Q5 comes with attractive new features like, Audi Park Assist, Comfort Key with sensor controlled Boot operation, Wireless Mobile Charging, Virtual Cockpit & a Bang & Olufsen Premium 3D Sound System.
The 10.1” touch MMI infotainment system will be integrated with Navigation & Audi smartphone interface offering connected car tech.
