2012 Audi Q5 Facelift - but you need to look hard
The Audi Q5 is getting a facelift – although you’ll need to look hard to spot it – and will be revealed at Beijing tomorrow.
We had wondered if we’d see a concept of the Audi Q5 Cabriolet at Beijing as Audi rushes to match the Evoque’s niche offering of a drop-top SUV.
But it seems the Q5 news for Beijing, apart from the arrival of the Q5 RS Concept, is a facelift for the Q5 – although you’ll need to look hard to see it.
The cosmetic tweaks for the Q5 seem minor: the grill turns in to Audi’s latest six corner offering, the headlights are slightly modified and so is the front bumper.
At the back the tail lights get a slight change as does the back bumper and inside the steering wheel is modifies and there’s some more premium trim. Really, just enough for anyone who’s got a current Q5 to know they’ve got the old model, but nothing of any real significance.
Changes under the skin on the Q5 seem to be more significant with some tweaking and fettling to the suspension and the 3.2 FSI petrol engine making way for the more recent 3.0 litre TFSI supercharged offering.
More on the 2012 Q5 facelift when Audi makes it official.
