The Q5 is the second SUV that Audi has ever made.

Despite not having the experience of Land Rover or BMW, for example, they still managed to deliver a successful product that's very popular in America, Europe and China. Not only that, but it also served as underpinnings for the Porsche Macan.

 But, since the Q5 was launched in 2008, a replacement is to be expected in the next couple of years. Until now, this project has largely been a mystery, expected but never detailed. Now a report from Automobile Magazine sheds light on the second-gen model. According to them, the replacement is going to debut in 2016 and will be based on the MLB-evo platform, shedding weight though the use of aluminum and stronger steel. A variety of new powertrains will be used, including an e-tron system and possibly a "tri-turbo" V6 TDI, like the one previewed by the RS5 TDI concept.
