    Audi Q5 petrol launched at Rs 55.27 lakh

    Audi expanded its Q5 portfolio in India by launching the petrol variant of the SUV. The Audi Q5 petrol has been priced from Rs 55.27 lakh for the Premium Plus variant and at Rs 59.79 lakh for the Technology trim. (both prices ex-showroom, India). This SUV is the third new launch from the German brand in India after the Q5 diesel variant and the power-packed Audi RS5.

    On the outside, both the petrol and diesel variants of the new Audi Q5 are visually identical. The SUV carries forward the striking single-frame grille and the five-spoke alloy wheels – although we would have preferred a more eye-catching design on the Q5 petrol. The only difference between the new model and the diesel is the ‘45 TFSI’ badge on its rear, representing its petrol heart.

    Under the hood resides a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol TFSI motor producing 252hp and 370Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are handled by the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission seen on the diesel variant. Power is sent to all four wheels via Audi’s signature quattro system. The driver also gets the option to select from five drive modes - comfort, dynamic, efficient, auto and off-road.

    On stepping inside, you will be welcomed by a luxurious and premium cabin; as is expected from Audi. The interior of the Q5 petrol is identical to its diesel sibling, including the beige-black dual-tone upholstery. The large 8.3-inch infotainment system is sure to grab your attention; operated via a rotary knob placed on the centre console. The Q5 gets goodies such as Audi’s virtual cockpit, wireless smartphone connectivity compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, three-zone climate control and more.

    The Audi Q5 petrol competes against the recently launched BMW X3 xDrive30i, Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and Lexus NX 300h. The Q5 petrol isn’t the last launch from Audi India for 2018, as it will be launching its flagship sedan – the all-new A8, later this year.
