Audi Q5 SUV gets a special edition in India. Check what is new
Audi has launched a special edition of its flagship Q5 SUV in India today. The special edition model comes almost a year after Audi India had launched the new generation Q5 in 2021. The special edition Q5 is based on the Technology trim of the SUV. It is offered with minor cosmetic tweaks and added accessories package. Audi has priced the Q5 special edition model at ₹67.05 lakh (ex-showroom), more than ₹80,000 costlier than the standard Technology variant of the SUV.
Among the key changes in the Audi Q5 special edition model is the exterior colour option. Audi has added a new colour scheme exclusive to this variant, which is called the Distinct Green. It will also be available in Ibis White, a colour already offered in other Q5 variants. Audi offers Q5 in India in five exterior colour options. Apart from Ibis White, it comes in Manhattan Grey Metallic, Floret Silver Metallic, Mythos Black and Navarra Blue Metallic colours.
Besides the new colour, the Q5 special edition also offers minor design modifications like black element on the ORVM, graphite grey treatment on the alloy wheels as well the four rings on the roof rials. Rest of the car remains similar to the standard trim with all the bells and whistles.
