Audi India is all set to launch the 2021 Audi Q5 facelift tomorrow, on November 23. The Audi Q5 moniker is coming back to India after a hiatus of more than 18 months. The pre-facelift Audi Q5, which was a BS4 model, hasn’t been on sale in India since April 2020. The Ingolstadt-based carmaker globally unveiled the facelifted Q5 back in June 2020, and the SUV was expected to be launched much sooner. However, the company had to postpone the launch due to challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, we have already driven the Q5 facelift and told you all about it. You can find our detailed review on the carandbike website. What’s still unknown is the price and here’s what we expect with regards to that. Now the Q5 facelift that is set to be launched in India is assembled locally, at Audi’s parent company, VW Group’s Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited (SAVWIPL) plant in Aurangabad. So, the company will price it attractively. And given the fact that the entry-level Q2 is priced between ₹ 38 lakh and ₹ 49 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Q5, which will be a couple of segments above it, is likely to be priced at ₹ 55 lakh to ₹ 60 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
