in India review

while watching a James movie, I was baffled as to why the aged of the Technical Department of British Service was called as Q? I still am yet to out however after seeing a Q5 commercial, I understood why he was called as Q. not exactly and I may be wrong on this but certainly on a figurative basis, I Q stands for excellence according to the at Ingolstadt and the Q series vehicles the Audi symbolize that

This brings me to the fact we haven’t reviewed the Audi Q5 in . here at Indiandrives. The Audi Q5 was in the news for the only fact it was launched with a cheaper of its 3.0 liter Tdi motor, the 2.0 Tdi. the Q5 may be selling like hot cakes for the its older sibling, the Q7 is no less a with its first customer none less than Abraham himself.

So today, the Q5 is going to be ripped apart and there may be no connection between Mr Q and the Q5, I believe perfection is something both strive to achieve. on Road Price

It looks like how a Q should look and that is a scaled version of the Q7. The huge wide Audi grille plus that 4 rings would give the fact that this is an even from a distance. The MLP or Longitudinal platform is the one on which SUV is based, is shared with the Q7 as well.

However from a distance it can be easily gauged that is a Q5 and not a Q7 due to its size apparentness as also the in how the goatee grille is presented. The lamps also have a tinge to them and have the day running LEDs string, is an Audi trademark now. The R17 tyre size with an to upgrade to 19 inchers is also but less than what it in the mighty Q7.

The Audi Q5 in India is made from aluminium as of the Audi cars are. pure Q7 cues abound the rear of this car wherein one never want to mistake car for anything else other an Audi. It is said that the Audi Q3 would also similar rear treatment.

Milano leather interiors a parts bin that is plucked its smaller sibling, the Audi A4 keep costs down. By the the interiors of the A4 are in no way offensive and contribute to the feeling. The steering wheel has dark leather, like the of the upholstery, covering it.

The necessary audio and cruise buttons are mounted on the steering though Bluetooth function is a dream away. While the dials are seemingly different others in its ilk with their motorbike like resting the others like the dashboard and multi information display are with the other Audis. shifts are optional on the 2.0 liter and the 2.0 liter TDI while 3.0 liter TDI it as standard.

Other optional include a terrific sounding and Olufsen stereo system, I have time and again that is a far better option the Harman Kardon system Mercedes offers. The Multi Interface again is standard on the 3.0 variant while the other two get it as an Unfortunately not too many storage abound other than the shaped glove box and two cup holders.

The wheel in all the variants is tilt and makes for an easy adjusting Unfortunately the leather isn’t as the ones for the Passat and hence sweating was one grave problem. The seat can seat three in but the leg room is a bit lacking and that is if you already checked out the Audi Q7.

The space available is 540 liters but the lip is on the higher side and hence the available cargo space is a bit of a However the rear seats forward liberating about liters of space. If you want to out in an expensive SUV, then would be it.

Build quality feels as well.

Handling and ride

The Audi Q5 in India boasts of front suspension which is of aluminium and independent trapezoidal-link for the and rear suspension respectively. All drive or Quattro is a permanent and this makes the Audi Q5 an agile beast. Starting the city limits, the car noticeably is ponderous to pilot than the and meaner Q7.

The steering wheel is and remains so even at elevated making the Q5 lose out on the handling High stability however is and the Q boasts of one of the lowest drag in its class. The ride quality is on the harder side of comfortable. The Q let one know as to what is going the road surface. Audi have kitted the Q5 (all with reverse parking and also an optional rear

ESP is always present on hand things go a bit slippery. Hill Control as also Hill Control system is present articulates the wheels and brakes if the is ascending or descending an incline. NVH all the engines is on the lower side the 2.0 TDI does become a bit noisy as to the 2.0 liter TFSI or the 3.0 liter

Just wish that it have such a rough quality. A bit of off-roading is afforded by the 200 mm of clearance though extremities is handled by other SUVs the Range Rover or Mitsubishi

Engine, performance and fuel

Audis are usually offered multiple engine options in and the Audi Q5 in India is no different. the newer engine of the lot, the 2.0 TDI in any way doesn’t differ from its as far as the interiors are concerned. Its only the hood is popped open one notices the engine difference. 2.0 liter TDI motor makes a power of 170 Bhp while the torque reads as 350 Nm. A 7 speed automatic handles the gear shifting

By the way, this is a DSG box. are precise and there is no hesitation the engine to either shift up or the rev range. This motor the porky 1690 kgs car to run from kmph in only 9.3 seconds. The 3.0 TDI motor makes 240 Bhp of power and a 500 Nm of torque whereas the 2.0 liter motor makes 211 Bhp and 340 Nm of torque.

The same 7 speed DSG is offered on the engines. While the 3.0 liter TDI is an absolute stonker going 0-100 kmph in less 8.5 seconds, the 2.0 liter just to be caned. No wonder that it has won the engine of the year, year year.

All the three variants an approximate top speed of 200 kmph

Brakes as always are fantastic and aids like EBD, ESP and ABS cut the work of bringing this vehicle to a halt. Safety is top notch with almost 5 ratings in almost all the markets it is present. “N” number of air bags and pretensing seat belts and other aids.

Fuel however takes a big hit with the motor registering an overall 7.7 the 2.0 liter motor turning out an 11.2 kmpl and the 3.0 liter TDI 10.1 kmpl overall. figures as far as the diesel motors are and no so good number keeping the motor in mind.

The Audi Q5 in is not at all a niche product. Infact the thinks that this SUV infact be its volumes generator. The A4 and the Q5 are the two that Audi currently on to keep its chances in the Indian alive. The Q5 has the butch image for it plus loads of road (if the 4 rings don’t draw attention, the day time running lights would), plenty of (atleast as option) and good space.

It has neat dynamics to boot for and a of excellent diesel and petrol The factors going against it are the of standard equipment, fuel and also the lack of proper centers. A good product can be discounted for and hence the Audi Q5 its bit of off-roading prowess makes for a buy, especially factoring the

The Audi Q5 price in India from Rs 37 lakhs and goes all the way to Rs 46 The Rs 37 lakhs sticker price is for the while the 2.0 liter diesel in at Rs 39 lakhs and the 3.0 liter V6 TDI comes in at Rs 46 All these prices are ex-show Mumbai.

I am in love with the Q5 and the Q in James Bond movies to come up with newer and equipments, Audi India also being trying to out new technologies in the Q5 and keep it fresh in the of the Indian car buying public.
