Audi India is set to launch the 2018 Q5 Petrol SUV in the country today. The new petrol engine option is likely to be same 2.0-litre TFSI motor found on its larger stablemate, the Audi Q7 45 TFSI, and should have a power output of over 250PS and 370Nm of torque. It will come mated to a 7-speed dual clutch auto transmission. This second generation luxury SUV joins its diesel sibling, the Q5 30 TDI which was launched in India in January. Expect the Q5 petrol to have the same trim and equipment levels as the diesel. The presence of a petrol engine option could give the Q5 a leg up over the Volvo XC60 which is diesel-only. We recently compared the Q5 with its rivals, which you can see here. Read our first drive review of the Q5 diesel here.
Stay tuned for Live updates of the launch.
