Spy Shots: Facelifted Audi Q5 ditches its camouflage for further testing
The Q5, much like all the other models in Audi’s line-up, is in line to receive an update and as proof, here are some new spy shots of the SUV during dome of its winter testing. The changes for the Audi Q5 aren’t all that impressive because only minimal changes were made to freshen up the SUV a bit, but that seems to be the trend with all of the other Audi models getting a mid-generation tweak.
These spy shots reveal that the Audi Q5 facelift has received a new hexagon grille with chrome accents in the upper corners, new headlights, a redesigned front bumper, and new taillights. The Q5 lower front fascia depicts an S-line treatment more like that of the newer S-line models such as the A6 and the new A4 facelift.
For the interior, the Audi Q5 will get the latest version of MMI with Audi connect and Google maps. The engine line-up will remain unchanged in Europe, but for the US market, Audi will be adding the 2.0 TFSI hybrid and 3.0 TDI drivetrains.
