Audi's X3 competitor is on its way and our spies snapped the Q5, with very little disguising, undergoing final tests in Germany.

Sharing a platform with the A5 and the upcoming A4, Audi will reportedly start producing Q5 at its Ingolstadt factory from later this year.

And because it shares its platform with such key models, a full complement of petrol and turbodiesel engines is likely to be offered.

They will probably be mated with either a six-speed manual or the new seven-speed DSG gearbox.

All Q5s will be equipped with a revised version of Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system. Certain derivatives could also benefit from adjustable air suspension and hill descent control.

It will, however, leave seven-seater status to big brother Q7 - Q5 won't be fitted with a third row of seats.
