The new Q5 has been launched with new elements in design, infotainment, assistance systems and engines, Audi said in a statement.
Audi India Head Michael Perschke said the new sports utility vehicle (SUV) will help the company in consolidating its leadership position in the luxury SUV segment.
"After the overwhelming response to our Q range SUV line-up, it is but logical, to introduce the new version of the Audi Q5 in India," Perschke added. The new Audi Q5 would be available in India with a choice of three engine options--2.0 TDIq, 3.0 TDIq and 2.0 TFSIq, the company said. Last year, the company said it sold 9,003 cars in the country and also opened new showrooms in Raipur, Kanpur, Goa, Navi Mumbai, Coimbatore, Delhi West, Nagpur and Bhopal. "We hope to continue our impressive performance and mark an equally strong growth in 2013 despite uncertain economic conditions," said Perschke said.
