Audi has launched the latest generation Q5 in India for Rs 53.25 lakhs (All-India ex-showroom). Ingolstadt’s mid-size SUV has got an upgrade after a really long time and comes just as all of its rivals entered a new generation. There are 2 variants and one engine and gearbox combination. What’s more, we have driven the car and you can find our expert review here.
Well what are the highs and lows of wanting to own a Q5? Read on to find out
What’s good about it?
As is expected of a car in this part of the market, you get a decent feature list, lots of interior room and a subtle design that keeps the car under the radar. The design is exactly like that of the Q7 which is not a bad thing at all as the Q7 is not a bad looking car. We particularly like the design of the full LED head lamps as they give the Q7 a distinct look.
What’s bad about it?
First and foremost, Audi has launched the car only with a diesel engine option. This means those who want a petrol powered model for this price and brand will be left without a choice. However, it seems more than likely that Audi will bring in a petrol option for the Q5 at a later date. The interiors while functional and feature-loaded, are a bit dull when compared to the rivals
Price: Rs 53.25 lakhs to Rs 57.60 lakhs
Engine: 1968cc diesel four-cylinder
Output and gearbox: 190bhp/400Nm seven-speed AT
