 The new Q5 is bigger and lighter (about 90 kg lighter) than the first generation, and has adopted a lot of the styling features of the Q7 particularly apparent on the front of the vehicle.  The 2017 Q5 will also include advanced technology such as height-adjustable air suspension system to assist handling with changing conditions or driver preferences.  The system will be driver operated and able to adjust ground clearance by up to 60mm.  Audi also says the new Q5 has a larger interior including larger storage area

The Audi 312mm ‘virtual cockpit’ instrument panel display is optional in the Q5.  Audi describe the virtual cockpit as  “truly revolutionary”, the fully digital instrument cluster is completely driver-focussed, displaying everything in direct view above the steering wheel.  Check out the video below .  The standard display will be a 178mm free-standing screen, controlled with a rotary dial and touch pad.
