Audi Q5 Teased Ahead of Paris Motor Show

New video shows off headlights and taillights

Audi has released a teaser video of its new Q5 crossover before it heads to the Paris auto show next week.

As showcased in the video, narrow headlights dominate the new front end. Out back, the Q5 receives new taillights, which appear to have unique lighting elements that correspond to the turn signal. Lines and creases make it clear that the shape of the Q5's back end has changed a bit, though cut lines seem to suggest the model will retain its signature clamshell liftgate.

Now that the Q7 has been completely revamped, it's about time Audi changes up its mid-range sport ute. The Audi Q5 is still in its first generation, which launched in the U.S. for the 2009 model year.

Expected to arrive for model-year 2018, the second-generation Q5 will likely bring a more potent turbo-four engine and improved technologies, including an available fully digital Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster. As we've said in past reviews, the interior is starting to look dated compared to the competition.

The Audi Q5 reveal comes on the heels of minor changes to the Q3 compact crossover, which features noticeably different design cues compared to the Q5. The Q3 launches overseas this fall with deliveries later in the year, and we bet the Q5 won't be far out from that.

Watch the video below for a closer look at the Audi Q5. The model makes its official debut September 29 at the Paris auto show.
