Audi’s Q5 has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, though to the casual observer it may not look like it. There’s a new platform, a new engine and a very slick interior. But how does it drive? Find out in our first drive review.

Another vehicle that we expect to be redesigned for the 2018 model year is BMW’s unloved 5-Series Gran Turismo. For its second go, BMW will move the vehicle into the 6-Series family and give it a sleeker look to rival the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS.

Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] Mustang will receive some updates for the 2018 model year. Leaked dealer ordering info suggests the updates will include a new transmission, performance packages, and handling mods borrowed from the Shelby GT350 models.

You'll find all these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
