Audi India is on a car launching spree. Just last Friday, the German car maker had launched the soft-top Audi R8 Spyder and today it has rolled out the Audi Q5 2.0 TDI diesel version of its luxury crossover. The Q5 2.0 TDI is priced at Rs. 39.05 lakh (ex-showroom, Maharashtra).
Audi said the Q5 2.0 TDI will be assembled in India and deliveries will commence in April. It must be noted that the Q5 2.0 TDI is the cheapest Q5 variant as the 2.0 TFSI is priced at Rs. 45.23 lakh and the 3.0 TDI is priced at Rs. 51.50 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, Mumbai.
Speaking about the new car’s launch Audi India Head Michael Perschke said, “The all-new Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Quattro resonates higher efficiency and dynamic performance with its new engine and refreshed array of characteristics.” He added that Audi will continue to expand its product portfolio in the country to cater to the rising need of luxury automotive customers.

Audi Q5 has the dimensions of an SUV, but looks like a large sports saloon on the road, thanks to the conservative wheel arches and rounded edges. The front is dominated by the large single grille while the elegant slope of the roof ends in a coupe-like fashion at the rear. The Audi Q5 is 4.63 m long and 1.88m tall, and has a wheelbase of 2.81 m – the widest in its segment. Also read: Audi R8 Spyder launched in India at Rs 1.47 crore
News about the Q5 2.0 TDI’s launch had already “leaked out” after Audi accidentally posted information about the model on its website last month. The 2.0 TDI has a 1,966 cc, 4-cylinder, in-line diesel powerplant that produces 170 PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox. Expect the Q5 to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/hr in 9.9 seconds and return a fuel efficiency of 12.8 km/litre as per ARAI. Related: Website blunder points to Audi Q5 2.0 TDI launch soon
