Teasing game continues as 2017 Audi Q5 has been spied wearing less camouflage this time. This mid-size crossover will follow in the steps of Q7 and adopt controversial front fascia with slender LED headlights and upright grille.

This camouflage hides most of the styling details but still we can see the prominent character lines, tailgate-mounted spoiler and a slopping roof. Audi Q7 also has door-mounted mirrors, familiar LED taillights and a shark-fin antenna.

2017 Audi Q5 will ride on same platform that underpins the redesigned A4. Although this change sounds relatively minor but it should enable the crossover to weigh up to 220 pounds less than its predecessor.

Engine options will likely be taken from A4 so expect to see an assortment of familiar petrol and diesel units including 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine. It is capable of generating 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. ().

There have also been rumors about high-performance RS variant which could use either a biturbo 3.0-liter V6 or a turbocharged 2.5-liter five cylinder engine. Depending on which rumor you believe, this model could generate 400 or 450 horsepower.

We are amazed by the fact that taillight design seems nearly identical to current Q5. Broad curves are used to define red pieces of Plexiglas, mirroring the softness of extra-large boot opening. Design of this model is entirely different from that of GLC, XC60 and X3 but not better.

If you want eco-friendly cars then you will be happy to know that now you can also order plug-in hybrid variant of this model that has a range of approximately 30 miles on electricity alone. Know more about upcoming cars and latest events by visiting AS Auto Parts Blog.
