It's been less than two years since the Audi A7 first went on sale in the US, but European buyers have been able to enjoy the sleek and stylish hatchback for twice as long. As such, Audi is preparing to give its A7 a mild refresh with tweaked exterior styling, but we're also expecting some of the features found in the all-new 2015 Audi A8 to possibly trickle down to the A7.

From what we can tell in these spy shots, the A7 is getting a minor facelift that includes a restyled front fascia and new headlights, which will likely boast Audi's new Matrix LED system. At the rear of the car, similar changes have been made with a fascia that now gets integrated outlets and different taillights that have a Lamborghini-like display.

Not apparent in these images – but still a good bet for production – we'd expect to see the new A7 get some of Audi's updated engines or new driver assist technologies. No definite word as to when we'll be seeing the refreshed A7 in person, but considering how close to production ready as this car seems to be, our bet is on the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

      Just a wild guess here; a shot in the dark. I think it's going to look like an audi. Specifically, an A12345678 or Q357.

      They took a VW CC and put the four rings on it... and probably a new headlight. How original!

        U are so wrong. Drive both and then talk. A7 is an amazing vehicle.

        Wake me up when Toyota/Lexus makes a sedan that doesn't look like a boring a$$ appliance.

          one looks like an appliance, the other one is just plain ugly and overtyled.

      Hopefully the engine doesn't magically keep burning oil on this one.

        Highly unlikely. My Supercharged 2012 A6 3.0T kept burning oil despite many visits to the dealer. I lease traded it to my dad and got a 2012 Jaguar XF 5.0 instead.

      Why is it every year Audi is intent on making their cars around some weird headlights and taillights? Every other car manufacturer follows some kind of design language with their lineup that evolves every year. With Audi it's "ok lets see how these wacky taillights and headlights look and build around that!"

      Yay, it looks like they've moved the taillights up .... my peeve with the current model is that they are too low!
