The Q5 hits the gym and plastic surgeon

The 2016 Paris Auto Show brought a slew of impressive new and revised models, not the least of which is the 2017 Audi Q5. It features an all-new look, a welcomed interior update that continues Audi’s current design theme, and upgraded mechanicals, including powertrains, suspension, and structural components. The Q5 is also larger in every dimension, giving it more interior space and better handling.

The Q5 was launched in 2008 to compete against the BMW X3, which the Bavarian company introduced as early as 2003. It received a facelift in 2012, but has largely gone unchanged. Rumors of the Q5’s second-generation began hitting the Internet in 2014 and early prototypes began showing up on public roads midway through 2015.

The Q5 is now based on the MLB platform shared with the A4 and Q7. This means it uses high-strength steel and large amounts of aluminum to add strength while cutting weight. In fact, Audi says the 2017 Q5 is 198 pounds lighter than the last generation, despite its larger size.

Making the most of that weight reduction are five upgraded powertrains that include four TDI engines and a single TFSI gasoline mill. Here in the States, we’ll only get the TFSI, which is an upgraded 2.0-liter turbo four with 27 additional horsepower for a total of 252. A new quattro AWD system helps further efficacy with Audi’s “ultra technology.” Basically, it cuts power to the rear axle when traction isn’t an issue.

There’s a ton more information on the 2017 Audi Q5, so keep reading for the full run-down.
