Arrow Audi Q5 Facelift - Leaked!

Audi Q5 facelift pictures have leaked a little earlier than anyone expected. The spy pics and rumors just had started to come out. Audi wont be too pleased!

Changes are only minor in comparison to the original model that has been on the market since 2008. The visual updates include a redesigned bumper, a revised grille and restyled headlights while the rear looks virtually identical.

Audi has put a little extra effort into the updates under the model's posterior. According to reports the 3.2-liter V6 FSI has been replaced with a more efficient supercharged 3.0-liter V6 from the Audi S4, albeit de-tuned to around 272PS (200kW/268hp). Those looking for the full 329PS (245kW/329hp) will have to wait until the end of the year when the SQ5 is unleashed.

The timing of this leak suggests the 2013 Audi Q5 facelift will be officially unveiled in Beijing on Monday, but the German manufacturer has already announced three world debuts for the event, none of which included the Q5.
I guess we'll find out the full story in a few days time.

Mixed feelings about this. I personally prefer the older LED headlights to this. Looks too angular and boring

This was expected considering Audi is all set to change the led in all their cars after A6 got them followed by the upcoming A4 facelift. Don't know if this has to do with most other cars going for aftermarket Audi type dotted drl's or the passat getting them?

These look pretty cool though as I've seen them in real on the A6 and it comes as a lightning package (pretty costly too). They initially were only DRL'S but now the xenon lifts are replaced by these led's and they are pretty powerful(more than the xenon too).

Not sure if this will become standard or will they keep it optional like in the A6?

Does anyone have any idea when this model is to be launched?
And is it true that this model is gonna have satellite navigation inbuilt into the MMI?
