Audi has launched a new special edition of the Q5 SUV that’s priced at Rs 67.05 lakh (ex-showroom). Based on the existing Technology trim, the new Q5 special edition gets minor cosmetic updates and an accessories package at a special price.
Available in limited numbers, the Q5 Special Edition commands a premium of Rs 84,000 over the Technology trim but remains mechanically unchanged to it.
- Q5 Special Edition is powered by 249hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine
- The SUV is available in limited numbers
Audi Q5 Special Edition: cosmetic updates
The new Q5 Special Edition has been made available in two exclusive paint shades – District Green and Ibis White – along with a black styling package to contrast with the new colours. This includes a blacked-out finish for the wing mirrors, the Audi logo on the grille and the tailgate, the roof rails and a new graphite grey finish for the 5-spoke wheels.
And while there are no updates to the interior or on the equipment front, Audi is offering an accessories package at a special price that includes running boards and ‘Audi ring’ foil finished in silver. Audi, however, has not quoted a price for the accessories package that’ll be over and above the ex-showroom price.
Based on the top-spec Technology trim, the Q5 Special Edition carries over all equipment that’s already offered on the former. This includes a panoramic sunroof, powered front seats with memory, three-zone climate control, ambient lighting, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit, parking aid plus and 8 airbags.
Audi Q5 Special Edition: mechanically unchanged
Under the hood, the Q5 Special Edition continues with the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that produces 249hp and 370Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system comes as a standard fit. The Q5 Special Edition also gets adaptive suspension and Audi Drive Select with six modes to choose from.
