German automaker Audi launched the second-gen Q5 SUV in the Indian market in January this year. The new Q5 was only offered with a diesel engine. Now, the company has announced that the Audi Q5 petrol will be launched in the country on June 28, 2018.
Audi has already launched the Q7 petrol in India in 2017 and the company aims to have more petrol cars in its product portfolio by 2020. The second-gen Q5 mid-size SUV replaced the first-gen model which was first launched in 2011 in the Indian market.
The second-gen Audi Q5 is based on the flexible MLB Evo platform and the SUV is also lighter by over 100kg as compared to the outgoing model. The new Q5 also features longer wheelbase and height. The overall design is sharper with the single-frame grille, Matrix headlamps and sporty bonnet.
The interior of the new Audi Q5 features a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit Display, 8.3-inch MMI display, Heads Up Display, Audi Phone Box with wireless charging, three-zone climate control, cruise control, leather upholstery and electrically adjustable leather seats.
The safety features of the new Audi Q5 include eight airbags, active lane assist, park assist, collision avoidance assist, blind spot warning, Audi parking system plus with rearview camera and much more.
The new Audi Q5 petrol is likely to draw power from a 2-litre engine producing 249bhp. The engine is expected to be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. But Audi is yet to announce the specifications of the petrol SUV. The Audi Q5 petrol will also feature Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
