Default Q5 2.0 uses timing belt or timing chain?

It seems 3.2 engine uses timing chain; how about 2.0 engine?

These are Audis. No rubberbands.

My '04 A4 3.0 uses timing belt... and they are quite expensive to replace (timing belt, water pump, thermostat, roller... etc). It's nice to hear Q5 uses timing chain.

The 2.0 TFSI Q5 uses the EA888 engine which does indeed use a chain driven cam.

Plenty of reading on the net about this engine.
