Is new Q5 coming in 2017: http://cardissection...5-release-date/ or is it coming in 2018 like these good people said: http://www.motorauth...di-q5-spy-shots ? Maybe those are the same cars, and they just can't get to decide on model year?

Depends on what you mean.
The Q5 comes next year but is likely to be a MY18, meaning post April+ launch.

Oh no, looks like another fastback style over function elephant stood on the roof chome over. I hope it looks a lot better in the metal than those spy shots.

I think well-kept, original "old style Q5's" 2013-16, will become sought after in the future.

I don't know when the 2015 model year's headlights and tail lights got their look, but in my opinion, it's one of the most beautiful cars of all time, and it will be hard to beat! I am really happy to have one in my life :-P

Personally, I love Porsche's timeless, classic styling! The Macan is the most beautiful SUV, inside and out, in my eyes. If I had the income, I'd be driving a Porsche Cayenne diesel for the extra interior volume and higher level of luxury (VAG stopped selling diesels in North America since September 2015).

I'm not at all inspired by the "designed in cardboard with rulers and box-cutters" bandwagon that many manufacturers have jumped on. It's like they've lost the talent to conceive and create beautiful curves. Porsche excels at gorgeous curves. The current Q5 is also a great example, for a lot less coin! I also dislike the "Flurry of Trapezoids" theme that many manufacturers have embraced. Audi is also going is this direction with their new designs :-( The worst offender is today's Lamborghinis. What a mess of flat surfaces, straight lines, and trapezoids.

In my eyes, today's Q5s are amongst the most beautiful cars on the road! It's a big reason that I rushed out in Feb '15 to order one of the current designs. I feared that if I waited too long, I'd get one of the new ones, which I don't care for. At least not the stuff I've seen in alleged spy or "naked" shots.

i have to say, and i am sure many others will agree - the Audi Q5 has the best looking DRL's (front & rear) on any car out there, and Audi need to keep this in mind when designing the new Q5 because i don;t think a 'one size fits all' approach to the DRL's on the latest Audi's will go down well with us Q5 drivers who have enjoyed exceptionally unique DRL's for a long time now.

would you concur?

Audi make the DRL's look better with every new version of each model. The latest A6/A7 DRLs look pretty good in my opinion especially with sweeping indicators/hazards.

I'm pretty sure the new/next Q5 will have DRLs that will make all us existing Q5 owners drool :mrgreen:

Agreed, BIG time! I think the thing that makes the current Q5's lights gorgeous are:
  • Basic shape fits harmoniously into the the vehicle's design, and into the context of their placement (imagine a detail-less opaque form in their place to get a sense of shape and shape within context)
    .
  • The details within the lights themselves also follow form well. For example, previous generations had a bunch of square LEDs along a line for DRLs in the front (too much detail; interrupts the visual flow; not in keeping with the vehicle's design theme). Same with tail lights that had lots of broken up, individual, "pixelated" elements. The current Q5's DRLs are distinct, simple, yet extremely attractive. I don't like the direction Audi is going with their overly-stylized headlight detailing and treatment. Another good example of "doing it right" is BMW, who uses a simple LED outline ring for each of the 4 round headlights. An example of "doing it wrong", though for different reasons, is Porsche's "4 points of light" DRLs -- in a car that is comprised of perfect and purposeful curves, and elegant flow (e.g., new Panamera), we see the discord of 4 bright pixels in each headlight. Porsche would have done far better to employ a BMW-like round outline for the DRL, or a Q5-like outline for the headlight assembly.

In MY opinion, Audi got the current Q5's look absolutely perfect in all respects! The shape of the lights, front and rear, the light details, the minimal detail, all work together in stunning beauty. It's one of the big reasons I'm driving a 2015 Q5 today, and still look upon similar Q5s as being amongst the most beautiful cars on the road, bar none. And that's a huge statement for an SUV! The Q5 is the most car-like SUV around... okay, the Macan does it extremely well, too... except for the "4 points of light" DRLs.

I LOVE my gorgeous Q5!!! :-P :twoup:

TT and R8 have better looking LEDs
New car looks good - just hope the Q3 style wheel arch doesnt see the light of day. Also needs different/more muscular alloys.

Q5 lights are very poor, hopefully Audi will fix this. I dont want lights that dont light the road well - but i am use to all LED lights i must add.

I ordered my SQ5 now before model changes. Don't like they way screens now pop out of dash. Don't like how square the new q7 is and I guess the new q5 will look similar. I do like the new instrument cluster though and the sweeping indicators.

I'm also happy we got our Q5 before the new generation... Anyone know why oh why an high class automotive company would copy the grill of an entry level company?!!

Then why did Hyundai come out with them in production first on the Santa-fe???? Audi still had time to turn around and eliminate the top angles and change a few things while keeping the design.

The next grill is mostly responsible for us to buy the present generation.

From those photos it looks a bit too much like the Q3, which I would have expected I suppose.
I have a 5 month old Q5 which I'm happy I bought, but expecting to take a big hit on trade in value soon.
There will be serious discounts on right now, for last of old style Q5, but I can imagine its a hard choice to make too, when the new version is right on the doorstep, an actual reality as opposed to a vague notion when I bought.
It will certainly be the first car I test drive when I feel it's time to upgrade, and I sincerely hope I'll be impressed and want to make the transition.
I'm a bit disappointed that the new version loses 'only' 100kg in weight, where the Q7 lost 325 kg, I'd have thought the ratio would be a lot higher, more like 200kg, wonder why such a large difference ?

My Mrs has a new A4 Avant which has the 'new' non retractable mmi screen which looks terrible. A design flop by Audi in my opinion and it looks like the new Q5 also has this non retractable screen.
