Will be launched in India in 2017.
The next-gen 2017 Audi Q5 has been spied testing nearly uncamouflaged, courtesy ototeknikveri. With an evolutionary redesign, the Audi Q5 will enter its second generation this year.
The next-gen 2017 Audi Q5 has been confirmed to debut later this year, and will likely go on sale in Europe by the year-end. Global markets including those in North America, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Oceania will likely get the all-new Q5 only in 2017. In the U.S. market, it will go on sale as a 2018 model.
The second generation Audi Q5 will be based on the MLB-Evo platform that is currently used for the second generation Audi Q7, the fifth generation Audi A4 and the second generation Audi A5. It’s expected to be around 100 kg lighter than the first generation Audi Q5. It will likely be offered with the same TFSI petrol and TDI diesel engines with displacement ranging from 1.8- to 3.0-litre. Transmission choices should include 6-speed manual, 7-speed S tronic and 8-speed tiptronic.
Expected key features of the 2017 Audi Q5 include Matrix LED headlamps, dynamic turn signals, Audi virtual cockpit fully digital instrument cluster and the MMI (Multi Media Interface) infotainment system with MMI touch control. The next-gen Audi Q5 will be manufactured at the company’s San Jose Chiapa plant in Mexico. It will likely be imported in CKD form in India, and be assembled starting in H2 2017.
