Next-gen 2016 Audi Q5 – Rendering


Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will be built in Audi’s new plant in San José Chiapa, Mexico.

The Audi Q5 is set to enter its second generation with a full redesign later this year. From the new generation redesign of its big brother Audi Q7 and saloon equivalent Audi A4, it is expected that the second generation Audi Q5 will have an evolutionary design.

With that speculation, an updated version of RM Design’s previous renderings previews the 2016 Audi Q5 in production form. Remco Meulendijk has tweaked the Q5 renderings with a new headlight design and a new shade of blue as the exterior colour.

The second generation 2016 Audi Q5 (North America: 2017 Audi Q5) will be based on the second gen MLB platform, also known as the ‘MLB-Evo’ platform. First used for the 2015 Audi Q7, the new modular platform in conjunction with various other weight saving measures will make the all-new model around 100 kg lighter than the outgoing model.

The 2016 Audi Q5 is expected to be offered with four- and six-cylinder TFSI petrol and TDI diesel engines with displacements ranging from 1.4-litre to 3.0-litre and outputs ranging from 110 kW (150 PS/148 hp) to 200 kW (272 PS). Transmission options will likely be 6-speed manual, 7-speed S tronic and 8-speed tiptronic. Quattro AWD will be optional.

The Audi Q5 will be offered with all new signature features such as the Singleframe grille, Matrix LED headlamps, sequential turn indicators, Audi virtual cockpit and the MMI (Multi Media Interface) infotainment system. The next-gen Audi Q5 will be built in Mexico and is expected to become available for pre-order in H2 2016.
