As Audi's relentless quest to fill every conceivable automotive niche continues, the folks of the interlocking rings plan to unveil the Q5 at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
According to AutoExpress, the Q5 will share its underpinnings with the recently released A5 and will draw on the styling cues forged by its big brother, the Q7 and the Cross Coupe quattro unveiled in Shanghai. Naturally, the Q5 will get Audi's trademark goatee, along with LED headlamps, all-wheel-drive and a commanding stance. Inside, Audi's entrant into the highly competitive cute 'ute segment will come complete with seating for five and the multi-rail system, originally employed in the A6 Allroad, that prevents parcels from shifting under load.

Power is expected to come in both diesel and gas-powered flavors, possibly including the 4.2-liter FSI V8. Strap a few turbos onto that mill and we may even get a RSQ5. We doubt it, if for no other reason than that badge may be a bit awkward on the boot.

      the Q7 is a humbling vehicle,..everytime i see one it brings a tear (or two) to my eye. i live in jamaica, so that doest happen 2 often (it costs about 9 mil $ja, base price). the Q5 would cost about 5-6, which is only expensive until u compare it to its siblings (last time i checked, the a6 was about 6.5 mil) considering that the new pajero (montero in the us, but discontuned) tops off at 5.5, thats a real stretch
