Audi India will launch the petrol version of its Q5 luxury SUV on 28th June. The diesel version of the 2018 Audi Q5 was launched in India earlier this year in January.

The 2018 Audi Q5 gets a sharper design language when compared to the outgoing model. The front end of the car gets Matrix LED headlamps along with LED tail lamps. The car gets a 12.3-inch coloured instrument cluster along with loads of other features. The 2018 Audi Q8 gets three-zone climate control, cruise control and 10 GB storage space for your music.
