Audi's entry in the small-SUV sweepstakes is nigh, and spy photogs caught it with only some of its skivvies on. The shots reveal the Q5 mid-mini ute sporting Audi's latest design tropes introduced with the A5 this past year. That is, a combination of heightened surface tension (a la BMW) and heightened curvaceousness, including a downward slope at the rear. Underneath is the same Modular Long Platform (MLP) underpinnings as the A5 and next A4. Expect the five seater to come with hill-descent control, adjustable air suspension and a range of engines. A 4.2-V8 powered S version, however, is a big, fat hmm. [via World Car Fans]
