The 2017 Audi Q5 is an anticipated vehicle from the manufacturer’s stable; yet we didn’t have a chance to see it without a disguise for a long time.
For the first time in many months, new pictures of the 2017 Audi Q5 have emerged online and it is nearly open without any camouflage covering its exciting design. The vehicle will be officially unveiled by Audi in a couple of months before which the spy shots have emerged. While it is fun to see the vehicle uncovered for the first time, it is also evident that the designers didn’t do much in terms of innovation.
The 2017 Audi Q5 sports design elements hugely inspired by the earlier models. The front has a silver grille which is hexagonal in shape as it has always been and the exterior shape is quite similar. However, the manufacturers have still kept some parts of the SUV covered, which we assume may have some distinct changes.
The horizontal bars found on the mesh has been significantly reduced which is one change that we could instantly notice. Many of them are either subtle or not there, which makes it difficult to deduce whether the Audi Q5 is a worthy successor to the earlier model. The headlights are rectangular in shape, following the conventional pattern and are seamlessly connected to the grille as well as the fenders in an even flow.
People who already own an Audi SUV will be familiar with the oversized hatch. It is integrated in the new model as well, which covers the LED taillights. If all these sound extremely familiar, you are not alone, because over fifty percent vehicles from the brand sport these similar features. It is unclear whether they wanted to retain the looks or opted for it so as to keep designing work to its minimum level.
While the new batch of spy photos showcases the exterior of the 2017 Audi Q5 in limelight, it doesn’t show the interiors. The developers confirmed that they have started using completely new elements to construct the vehicle. It helped them shave off pounds off the body yet keep it rigid and firm on the road for maximum stability. The vehicle is expected to support a fully digital dashboard with minimal analog controls and the air conditioning system can be operated using a touch panel.
Audi has come a long way in terms of engineering prowess, but if they wish to entice customers, they may have to design their next gen vehicles better.
