Audi Q5s on a fuel run to Nagpur

Just then, Audi gives us a call and tells us the new Q5 is ready to hit Indian roads and we can have three of them, with three different engines. This one is not a completely new Q5, but a refreshed one. It sports new headlights and taillights, reshaped bumpers and a redesigned grille. And Audi claims the engines are more frugal by up to 15 per cent.

So there we are, in three brand new Q5s. Filling up the 75-litre fuel tanks to the brim, we set the in-car navigation system to the zero-mile marker in Nagpur. Abhinav jumps into the Q5 powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine that cranks out 225bhp. Gagan gets the bigger 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that churns out 245bhp and 580Nm of torque. And I drive the 2.0-litre diesel that’s good for 177bhp.
