      Looks great as always I've always loved the Q5. Now if only it was available with the 3.0 TDI...

      Headlights, taillights, exhaust tip, and steering wheel are new! Roof rails too (maybe)?

      Good to see Audi is finally figuring out how to make LED headlights not look ridiculous.

      It will be soon.

      I like this facelift better than the A4/S4. It's a nice improvement.

      I may be wrong in this, but it looks like the dash has been subtly redesigned as well: it appears as though the recess for the MMI screen has been shortened so that it is slightly more flush with the dash.

      looks like the Q7 style tails. Roof rails are the same... new type German rails. Toobad they done offer a roof rail delete like the X3.

      not much else has changed on this folks.

      3.2 should be replaced with 3.0T (gas, superduper charged) with 8spd Tip.

      Alright, screw the Touareg, I want this. 3.0TDI is also good.

      Yep. It's about the same weight as the A6/A7. This thing's gonna scoot.

      I haven't liked any of these facelifts. The new headlight design doesn't look better at all to me.

      This is the first facelift from Audi that I like. The changes made to the A4 and A5 were terrible.

      Meh. Not a fan. Give me the Lexus RX. That way at least I got reliability with the bland.

      I don't think the Lexus can go 0-60 in high 4's/low 5's like this thing will.

      Just what soccer moms need.

      Uh, no. It's a bland design dressed up to appeal to the rich folks. It's styled perfectly to appeal to the conservative masses, meaning boring.
