The new-gen Audi Q5 has been launched in India at Rs 53.25 lakhs. The SUV comes in two variants with a single diesel engine option. Here is everything else that you can buy for the price of this Ingolstadt’s newest offering.

For the price of the new Q5, there are its usual rivals – the BMW X3 in the 20d M Sport guise and the Mercedes-Benz GLC in the 220 d Sport trim. The Bavarian is evenly matched in power to the Q5 while the Three-Pointed star falls a little short on it. However, all the three SUVs have the same 400Nm of torque on offer. If you want something different and striking, the newly-launched Lexus NX comes as a stylish alternative in the price of the Premium Plus trim. If you need something subtle and safe, the Volvo XC60 Inscription will suffice. To give the Q5 a serious run for its money in off-roading, the Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE Luxury comes as a British alternative in the segment.

Apart from the high-riding vehicles, the mid-size executive sedans come as the next best bet. Another German trio – the Mercedes-Benz E 220 d, BMW 520d and the Q5’s stable mate, the A6 35TDI, come as opulent and classy alternatives. One can also have a look at the newly launched Audi A5 and the slightly-exclusive Lexus ES and Volvo S90 in the same price range. All these luxury sedans come with identical output figures from their diesel powerplants (except the Lexus, which uses a petrol hybrid powertrain).
