Revised version of Audi Q5 premium small SUV is spotted testing

This is the facelifted Audi Q5, which our spy photographers have spotted cold weather testing.

From these pictures it appears that the updated Q5 will have only minor changes over the current car, with a new grille and headlights taking cues from the recently updated A5. At the rear, there appears to be hardly any change - even the lower part of the rear bumper remains the same as the current Q5.

However, the badging on this test car states it's a ‘3.0T’, which is an engine that's not available in the current range. Small alloy wheels and a lack of quad exhaust pipes suggest that this could be a red herring, but it's believed that Audi is keen to add a high-performance Q5S version to the range.

The updated Audi Q5 will go on sale in the summer, with prices similar to the current car, starting from around £28,000.
