To be honest, I think that's true. The design language of the Prologue wasn't that different at all, most that made the concepts interesting came from the ocncpet car proportions (huge wheels, very low and wide body), apply that to a standard A4 shape, and all we are left with are slightly variations of grille, lights, and here and there boxier/edigier lines. Oih wait, that's the new A4....

Audi nneeds to get back to the sublime elegant, yet sporty line of the 90ies, that had smooth shapes, uncluttered yet stand out interiors (A8 Mk. 1, A4 Mk.1). This variation of those basic 90ies shapes with detail overload can't go anywhere....

NOTHING can be more boring than the current Q5, which is the wheeled equivalent to anesthesia. If they do it uglier, at least that will be something.

Personally I think the currnet Q5 looks fine, not exciting, but elegant, and with nice proportions. If they "Q7" it, they uglify a boring but nice car,

Agreed. I've always been a fan of the Q5. It was understated, but attractive.

Yeah, personally I always thought the Q5 was a sleeper hit - a car that looked boring when it came out, but grew on you over time and eventually ended up looking better than the competition from BMW and Mercedes

Is it just me or does it feel like there is some crossland coupe concept design cues in the new Q5?

The only resemblance I see is the headlight and grille treatment, which is identical to what they're doing on the Q7. Outside of the front fascia, I don't see any similarities.

Well that did preview the new "pleasing the noveau riche" fat chrome grille already seen on Q7 and Q3 facelift (and IMO that's horrible in the flesh, like something form China), and teh generally slightly boxier approach to the same theme current Audi design.
