For some reason, I thought that those were embargoed until next week. But it wouldn't be the first time some one broke an embargo & everyone else followed suit.

My guess is more of the same from the 5th gen. Wider wheels/grippier tires, extra/stiffer stabilizer bars, more aggressive gearing, stiffer springs, minor exterior tweaks.
