Here are the first spy shots of the Audi S5 Sportback facelift due next year, indicating larger than ordinary changes.
With a face that looks decidedly more A6-like and a similarly-updated LED rear light layout, the car spied here wears heavier camouflage than the typical air-dam-and-side-skirts tape you find on most facelifts.
New fog lights and reshaped front air inlets also appear to feature under the disguise. Though the profile is similar to a smaller A7, some design cues found on the new, larger four-door coupe don’t appear to have made the translation, including the 100 Coupe S-inspired kick at the rear window line. While it’s hard to tell with the swirly vinyl coating, the side panels may have received some of the A7’s slimming surface undulations, however.
