All-New 2017 Audi Q5 From The Paris Show Floor

Joining the likes of one of the most awaited RS models of the year, the RS3 Sedan, the all-new Q5 was unveiled by Audi in Paris yesterday, and it will remain there until October 16 .

Audi gave the next generation Q5 an evolutionary exterior design that mirrors the Q7 on a smaller scale. Inside, there is an entirely new 12.3-inch instrument cluster available on the options list, which comes to replace the analog dials, and drivers have the possibility to order a head-up display as well that can project critical info straight onto the windshield.

Audi’s larger and lighter 2017 Q5 uses the MLB Evo platform, which underpins the latest A4 and Q7 and will also be found on the next generation A8. The architecture opens up the possibility of adding numerous powertrains, but the brand with the four rings will only offer one petrol and four diesels, at first, with an SQ5 to join the lineup later, possibly followed by a range-topping RS.

Prospective buyers have to wait until early next year to see the new Q5 at European dealers, and while the full pricing data has yet to be released, the Germans did say that the most basic variant carries a price tag of €45,100 ($50,555) in its local market. North American sales will start next year.

    That cabin looks incredibly cheap. The screen looks like an afterthought. The Mazda CX-9 executed this theme better.

    It looks like they just glued a big iPhone on the dashboard. Literally a slapdash design.

    I actually like the new Q7 (except the pop-up screen, run-flats, and no spare), but this just looks cheap and fugly.
