Audi has released its first official teaser image for the next-generation A7.The darkened rendering hints at evolutionary design changes, as revealed ahead of schedule a few weeks ago via a leaked die-cast model.

The toys and spy photographs of camouflaged full-scale prototypes point to a revised front fascia that better meshes with the redesigned A8. The Sportback profile also appears to have been slightly tweaked for the 2019 edition.

The revisions are expected to include distinctive LED taillights that span the entire distance below the retractable spoiler. Powertrains will likely carry over mostly unchanged for the initial launch, perhaps with more electrification and a rumored hydrogen fuel-cell in the mix.

Full details will be announced during Audi's October 19 media event.
