Audi has released the full official details of the facelifted 2013 Q5 - its first updates since the initial launch in 2008. The highlights include a more refined engine range that is up to 15 percent more fuel efficient.

The 3.0-liter TDI meanwhile offers 241hp (180 kW/245PS) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque.

The petrol options consist of a 2.0 TFSI with 221hp (165 kW/225PS) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) and a new turbocharged 3.0.liter V6 with 268hp (200 kW/272PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft).

The final powertrain is for the hybrid variant of the Q5 line-up and is only available with the brand's quattro all-wheel-drive system. It couples the 2.0 TFSI with an electric motor to produce a combined output of 241hp (180 kW/245PS) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque.

Pricing for the 2013 Audi Q5 facelift will start at €39,900 for the base model which is a bump of just €150 over its predecessor.
