2021 Audi Q5 bookings now open as SUV war in luxury space gets hot
2021 Audi Q5 SUV is gearing up for a November launch in India and Audi on Tuesday opened bookings for the SUV at ₹2 lakh. After a string of electric vehicle launches which has helped Audi become the luxury brand with the widest range of battery-powered options here, the German auto company is returning to a familiar space of luxury SUVs with the new Q5.
The return of Q5 assumes special significance as the shift to BS 6 had meant that Audi India had taken models like Q3, Q5 and the Q7 off the shelves. These models form the core of the company's thrust in the Indian car market and the Germans believe the latest Q5 will further bolster prospects. “This (Q5) will be our ninth product launch for 2021 and we couldn't be more happy about our progress for the year," said Balbir Singh Dhillon, Audi India head. “The new Audi Q5 is a perfect blend of features, comfort and practicality in its segment. With its new design that captivates at first glance, we are confident that it will continue to retain its leadership position in the segment and woo the existing and prospective customers."
