The headlights are stupidly small. That bonnet looks like it was stolen off a Range Rover. Panoramic roof looks good. I think I will be keeping my old whip a little longer.

Looks like an early mule so the lights and some panels won’t be the finished article just yet.

Be interesting to learn more on dimension, odds on it will be slightly bigger but by how much !

This might be the face-lift version of the MK2?

Seriously doubt that my friend, looking at the timeline I’d say it’s definitely an early look at the 3rd Generation Q5, In normal times this would ship around October 2023 but at the moment I’d seriously doubt that. More like Q1 2024 at the absolute earliest.

Yes you are probably right looking at a ~7 year Audi refresh model / platform cycle.

Q5 1st generation 2008/2009
Q5 1st generation facelift 2012/2013
Q5 2nd generation 2017/2018
Q5 2nd generation facelift? Did this happen or did Audi skip it?
Q5 3rd generation ~2024?

Isn't the 2021 the Q5 2nd generation facelift?

Interior has also been updated. Larger MMI, touchpad removed etc.

Nice to see 'proper' exhaust pipes, though whether they survive through to final production remains to be seen!

Did those rear LED lights ever make it to the UK market?

I heard you could factory order from a choice of 3 designs, but in every Q5 I configured they were never an option to configure.
Yes, they are an (expensive) option on the SQ5 SQ5 option.

I decided I didn't want to spend £1K + on something only following drivers would benefit from :rolleyes:

Starting at £72,510 for Vorsprung. Think I will keep my old nail a while longer :rolleyes:
Not wrong! Audi have totally priced me out of ever getting a Pano Roof on the Q5 again, unless they bring them in on the new new Q5 in 2023?
