The Audi Q5 facelift was unveiled in June last year, and now, the company has begun testing the model on Indian soil ahead of its launch that is likely to take place later this year. Upon launch, the model will rival the Mercedes-Benz GLC Class, BMW X3, and the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
Under the hood, the Audi Q5 facelift is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines globally. However, the India-spec model is likely to be offered only with a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine. This engine is capable of producing 245bhp and 370Nm of torque. Paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission, power is sent to all four wheels via the all-wheel-drive system.
On the outside, the new Audi Q5 facelift features a new single-frame octagonal grille, reworked front and rear bumpers, new LED headlamps and revised LED tail lights, and new alloy wheels. Higher variants are also expected to come equipped with matrix LED headlamps.
Inside, the 2021 Audi Q5 facelift will come equipped with a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an updated MIB3 system, connected car technology with Amazon Alexa virtual assistant, and the fully digital virtual cockpit.
