Will debut later this year in Europe.

The second generation 2017 Audi Q5 was spied testing in India for the first time earlier this month. Now, the 2017 Audi Q5 has been spied testing in India yet again, this time by Autocar India reader Pankil Bhagat. The next-gen Audi Q5 will be made at the San Jose Chiapa plant in Mexico and likely be imported into India in CKD form next year. It's expected to go on sale in India sometime next year.

Spyshots suggest that the most differentiated angle of the Audi Q5's redesign will be its front-end with sharper lines and significantly more aggression.

The second generation Audi Q5 will be based on the second generation Modular Longitudinal Matrix platform, also known as ‘MLB evo’ platform, which currently underpins the second generation Audi Q7, fifth generation Audi A4 and the second generation Audi A5 Coupe. Matrix LED headlamps, sequential turn indicators and Audi virtual cockpit fully digital instrument cluster will be among the many key features of the all-new Q5.
