The Q5 now gets a new set of DRLs or daytime running lights. The headlamp cluster is changed therefore, and yes while a full LED cluster is standard, the matrix LEDs can be ordered as an optional extra. Using a new lighter sill insert has also enhanced the car's ground clearance. A redesigned tailgate, brand new OLED taillights (which have their own story, see below), a new diffuser and tailpipes, give the car a more athletic rear. Overall the car appears wider and bigger, even though it is not so. There are two new colours – ultra blue and the one you see here, called district green.

A redesigned tailgate, brand new OLED taillights, a new diffuser and tailpipes give the car a more athletic rear.Now those OLED taillights. OLED or organic light emitting diodes, are superior to regular LEDs as they can light up a larger area more evenly. The new taillights use them, and Audi had gone one step further to offer three different rear light signatures or patterns that buyers can choose between. Each signature comes with its very specific animation when the car is unlocked, or switched off – what is also known as the ‘leaving home and coming home' light scenario.

The animation (meaning the pattern in which the taillight cluster lights up or shuts down) is different for each of the three looks, and this is a huge first in the industry. Having a start up or shut down animation was also an Audi first but now this takes it further. Besides the three design choices that buyers can opt for, there is a fourth signature taillight pattern which comes on by default, when the car is put in dynamic mode (using the drive select drive modes programme). The OLED taillights have another trick – and that is safety related. All the OLED segments within the cluster light up – when the car is at standstill and sensors detect another vehicle coming closer from behind – like say at a traffic signal. Once you drive away, the taillights revert to the chosen signature design.

While it is not clear how much of this will be offered on the Indian model, given that most of these customisations would be software related, it should not be that difficult. I say this keeping in mind the fact that the Q5 will likely continue to be locally assembled at the VW Group's plant in Aurangabad. The big change between the last car and this – for India – will be that it will no longer be offered as a diesel. The TDI engines will be replaced by just the TFSI range. In fact in a presentation to a select group of us from India and the Middle East, Audi's HQ team said the three engines for this region include two 4-cylinder petrol engines, and one 6-cylinder.

These are the 2.0 TFSI quattro with 200 bhp and 350 Nm, and the same engine with a 260 bhp output. The second iteration makes 370 Nm of peak torque. Both have a 12-volt mild hybrid system with brake energy recuperation, and are married to a 7-Speed dual clutch S-Tronic gearbox. The V6 goes into the SQ5 TFSI quattro. The 3-litre engine makes 348 bhp and 500 Nm; and uses an 8-Speed torque convertor tiptronic to channel all that torque to the wheels. The V6 has a standard 48-volt mild hybrid EV system. While both engine variants have quattro, the 4-cylinders use the lighter (and cheaper) ultra technology, while the thoroughbred quattro (with a torsen mid-differential) goes into the SQ5. Going offroad is now easier, with a new inclination angle display, and of course the downhill assist function.

The car gets a whole host of driver aid functions – but the Q5 always had those. The Audi pre sense city system (like Volvo's City Safety) is standard on the Q5. This keeps the car from lower speed collisions or accidents. Higher speed collision avoidance assist, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping, emergency braking, predictive efficiency assist (that monitors your drive style and offers the most optimum energy saving performance), and even a turn assist – just some of the optional equipment you can get. The car comes loaded with a long list of expected safety gear – as standard.
