Audi Q5 was launched in India in 2009 with only two variants namely the 3.0 TDI q and the 2.0 TFSI q. Audi Q5 was created as a smaller version of the SUV Audi Q7 which was launched before it because there were some Indian consumers who prefer a smaller SUV although Q7 is doing well in the market. It is to be noted, however, that although available in the Indian market, manufacture of Audi Q5 is still in plants in Germany and these are exported as built products to India.


Audi Q5 comes in two variants in India. The petrol variant is the Audi Q5 TFSI quattro with 1,984cc, four-cylinder engine and can run up to 5.8 city miles per liter. It has a maximum output of 155KW at 4300 to 6000rpm and maximum torque of 350Nm at 1500 to 4200 rpm. This variant contains standard car features such as air conditioning, CD player, anti-lock braking system, and power steering among others. The diesel variant is the Audi Q5 3.0 TDI quattro with a 2,967cc, V6-cylinder engine with turbo charger and can go as far as 7.8 city miles per liter. The maximum output is 176KW at 4000 to 4400rpm and a maximum torque of 500Nm at 1500 to 3000rpm. This model has the same features as the 2.0 TFSI, however, it does not have a CD player.
