The German luxury car maker Audi intends to bring its latest sports utility model Q5 to India by June 2009. Q5 was introduced in Europe in November 2008 and with four versions in petrol and diesel models. The Indian consumers will witness 3.0 litre diesel engine and 2.0 litre petrol engine models in India.
"The only SUV in India from our stable is Q7, which is doing extremely good even in the present situation. But still some people prefer a smaller SUV and because of this, we have decided to offer Q5 in the Indian market," said Audi spokesperson. "In June this year, we will launch only two variants of Q5 in India, homologation of which are currently on. These vehicles will be sold there as a completely-built-unit (CBU) and will be exported from the company's Ingolstadt facility," he added.
It is also giving a facelift to its existing sedan A6 and plans to introduce the upgraded model in the country. The facelifted sedan is expected to be launched sooner than the SUV model Q7.
