The car is currently in the development stages and engineers at the German automakers are working hard to make this a very special car. The 2017 Audi Q7 will probably make its debut in the next few months. We already know that the design of the 2017 Audi Q5 is heavily influenced by the design of the Q7.
2017 Audi Q5: Redesign Exterior and Interior
On the outside, the 2017 Audi Q5 will get its usual grille, which will now have a more horizontal design. The four rings are to be placed on top and just under the hood. The headlights use LEDs and are designed to give the Q5 a more aggressive appearance. On top of the front bumper a pair of air intakes have been positioned to suck air and cool the engine. At the back, the body of the Q5 is more rounded and there is a distinctive lack of any sharp edges. The liftgate at the back is large in size and it takes up most of the space at the back. It also has a small sized spoiler on the top. The LED taillights at the back and the twin exhaust pipes are other notable features at the back of the Q5.
The body of the 2017 Audi Q5 has been made out of lightweight materials including aluminum and extra tough steel. This helps to reduce the weight of the vehicle and will improve performance as well as fuel economy.
On the inside, the German automaker has made full use of Virtual Cockpit technology. There is a large sized display that is placed behind the steering wheel. This display does everything that the old instrument cluster used to do. This new technology was first introduced by Audi in its Audi TT, which debuted at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show. The large TFT screen displays information and navigation maps as well as speed (digitally) and it also does the work of a tachometer.
