Our spy photographers have snapped a revamped version of the German brand’s mid-sized SUV undergoing testing

This is our first look at the facelifted Audi Q5. Revisions will stretch to a handful of exterior styling tweaks, a mildly redesigned interior and, most importantly, the adoption of mild-hybrid technology. The new model will likely reach the UK by the end of 2020, with a starting price of around £42,000.

Exterior styling revisions are subtle. The outgoing model’s chrome egg-crate grille has been swapped for a black honeycomb unit, while new bumpers (similar to those found on the new Audi Q3) feature front and rear. Audi has also replaced the old Q5’s flared side skirts with slimmer panels and fitted a fresh pair of headlights.

Interior revisions are expected to extend to a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and pair of new digital touchscreens on the dash in place of the current model’s single screen setup. The overall look will mirror that of the recently-updated Q7 SUV.

Under the skin,12-volt mild-hybrid technology will feature for the first time. The facelifted Q5 should borrow the Audi A4’s 187bhp 40 TFSI and 242bhp 45 TFSI 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol-hybrid units, while the SUV’s existing 187bhp 40 TDI diesel is also expected to be updated with new 12-volt mild-hybrid tech.

All powertrains will send their power to a quattro four-wheel drive system via a seven-speed automatic transmission.

‘Why shouldn’t Land Rover be allowed to cash in on the Defender?’

Mike Rutherford 2019-09-22 12:00 Few cars in history have earned the right to be called legendary and the Defender is rightly one of them, says Mike Rutherford While some motor manufacturers shoot themselves in both feet by playing down or killing off their most iconic products, Land Rover is sensibly celebrating and cashing in on its enviable heritage. And why not? If you’ve got it, flaunt it, exploit it; then sell it to willing customers. The Defender is to Land Rover what the Beetle and Golf are to Volkswagen. It’s taken decades to establish, build and have legendary status slapped on that deliciously historic and valuable badge. And the Indian-owned, England-based firm isn’t allowing anyone to forget it. Even if this type of heavy-duty vehicle isn’t your cup of tea, it’s hard to ignore the fact that there’s an all-new Defender – which, I promise you, has to be seen in the metal. • 'Does JLR really need the Defender in its line-up?' Somehow it doesn’t photograph well...
