The mid-life facelift for the Audi Q5 has been spied again, this time with a first look at the revised interior.

From the outside, not much has changed since we published images of a black prototype a month ago. It's still obvious the changes will be fairly subtle, with revisions to the front grille, head- and tail-lights, along with the bumpers at both ends.

Audi is used to keeping its family resemblance across model lines strong, so it's no surprise the new Q5 has strong visual links to the smaller Q3 along with the larger Q7 and Q8.

With this latest set of images, we take a peek at the new Q5's interior – which is very much along the lines of the updated A4 range.

There's a much larger touchscreen tacked onto the dashboard, likely measuring 10.1 inches in this vehicle. With the addition of touchscreen functionality, the current model's MMI rotary controller is headed for retirement.

Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital instrument binnacle doesn't feature in this particular vehicle, though we'd expect the optional display to pick up new graphics and functions in line with the company's newer models.

Under the skin, the updated Q5 will likely get a wider range of 48V mild-hybrid-augmented powertrains for enhanced efficiency, along with one or two plug-in hybrid versions as Audi continues its electrification push.

The other likely changes in store for the company's popular crossover is the latest in Audi's semi-autonomous driver assistance systems, with Level 2 driverless capabilities on the highway.

Expect the revised Q5 to debut in the new year, perhaps around the same time as the Geneva motor show in March. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for all the latest, and click on the images for the full gallery.
