Those better not have gone to the screen.
We received some updated photos of the next-generation, though still, camo-wrapped Audi Q5 parked side-by-side with the current Q5. This is obviously rather handy, and we can directly compare and contrast the two generations. Off the bat, we can see the new model is both wider and lower than the outgoing car.
Our spies report it may be longer as well, but couldn't confirm. However, the extra width will regardless translate to more interior space, though we're sure the upcoming electric Q5 will have even more. Speaking of the interior, we can see much of Audi's current bits and pieces, tech included, smattered throughout the interior.
The dash and center console are very reminiscent of the upcoming Audi A4, though our spies say the center console isn't quite as wide as the A4's. Again, that means more interior space for occupants. Two screens dominate the interior, with a much larger one now floating on the dash.
Aesthetically speaking, it appears the screens will very much take precedence over the shape of the dash. Below the screens, we see a new Quattro badge and some lightly familiar elements. The current layout reminds us a lot of the Audi A3's center stack and, unfortunately, it's tough to tell where the climate controls went. Hopefully not the screen.
That aside, the largest change will be to the Q5's front fascia. The redesign will bring the SUV more in line with current Audi offerings, sharing much of its design language with cars like the new A4, A3, and others. From what we can see, the car should be a handsome thing, helped largely by its new, wider stance.
Powertrains should be shared with the A4, which tells us Audi will offer a smattering of gas and diesel options for the next Q5. Obviously, the aforementioned Quattro badge means AWD. A plug-in version will be available as well, and the car should launch sometime in the second half of 2023.
