Spyshots: Audi Q5 Facelift

The Audi Q5 was officially introduced in 2008 at the Beijing Auto Show. Exclusively manufactured by the Ingolstadt, Germany Audi factory, the Q5 is one of the first models to be entirely based on the company's LP modular platform. In our eyes, it’s the Audi SUV everybody should have wanted - smaller and more practical on a daily basis than the Q7. Yet somehow, they seem to have gotten the design a bit wrong in a market where looks are everything.

We’re not sure if they are going to get it right with the facelift, since spy shots reveal precious little other than the fact that it will have fresh headlights and a hexagonal grille. Let's just hope Audi doesn't make minimal changes like they have done recently.

This mule is a bit puzzling, as it’s got 3.0T quattro written on the back. Currently, the Q5 only comes with a 3.2-liter FSI, and we though the 3.0-liter turbo would be reserved for the Q5 S. The V6 unit has the potential of making 333 horsepower, but since this Q5 hasn’t got the quad exhausts of an Audi ‘S’, we don’t expect that much.
