One of the major changes in the new Q5 facelift SUV is under the hood. The German auto giant has decided to ditch diesel engine, and now offers only petrol units to power the SUV. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the new Q5 can generate 249 bhp of power and 370 Nm of peak torque.

Another key change in the Q5 is the new 10.1-inch touchscreen with the third generation Modular Infotainment Platform or MIB 3. It offers haptic feedback, gets Audi's latest MMI Touch, voice controls, supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Audi has also made certain tweaks in design of the new generation Q5 SUV. The Q5 facelift now comes with a large single-frame octagonal grille with vertical chrome slats, reworked LED headlight, DRL and taillight units and 19-inch alloy wheels. The rear profile has also received minor updates like a chrome strip underlining the boot lid.

On the inside, besides the new infotainment screen, the Audi Q5 also gets all-digital driver display, updated steering wheel, upholstery in leather and plethora of features like ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, front parking sensors and the Bang and Olufsen music system.

For the higher-spec Technology trim, Audi offers a 19-speaker sound system with 755 watts output and 3D sound effects, instead of the 10-speaker 180-watt system in the Premium Plus trim.

There is also electric boot lid with gesture control and Comfort Key for keyless entry as some of the new features included in the new generation Q5.

As far as drive dynamics are concerned, the new Audi Q5 is equipped with cruise control, hill-hold assist among others. The tried and tested Quattro all-wheel drive technology is now coupled with damping control to the suspension to reduce body roll and offer smoother ride on rough patches of roads.

The new generation Audi Q5 offers five different drive modes which include Comfort, Dynamic, Individual, Auto and a new Off-Road mode for soft off-roading. The SUV can hit a top speed of up to 237 kmph, clock zero to 100 kmph in just 6.3 seconds and returns a mileage of 17.01 kmpl, which is certified by ARAI.
